I havnt done any huge amounts of research on this topic, but I've just kinda been looking around and I'm just getting curious.
It seems like there's a lot of nice parts being sold there that just arent seen here in the States. Is there not a big enough market to ship them over here? or do some just not pass street legalities? I thought maybe there might not be enough people that understand japanese enough to start selling parts here.
Any Info is much appreciated

Yeah, I mean aftermarket parts. But if I remember correctly, Hymee is based in Australia and that's pretty much same distance yet plenty of their stuff is sold here... I figured if the parts in japan are so good, they would be wanted over here too
I dont know anything specific really but I saw a video of an 8 with some exhaust which doesn't seem to be offered in America and it sounds like a pretty nice system. Also showed a video of an intake which I havnt seen before.
a majority of those parts are readily available as imports to the US market, albeit the price you pay may not justify the part you get, if youre looking for the JDM stuff you gotta run with the big dogs, and that comes with an insane pricetag.
My japanese sucks, so i wasn't really able to be sure this guy was telling the truth, but i ran into a gigalo in kabuki-cho shinjuku(tokyo, japan) who had a pearl white rx8 that had a reverse cam and parking sensors...and he said that they were OEM...i think he said that :-P Their integration was perfect, so i tend to trust they were...
