JDM Theory returned for yet another "J's Gathering" at San Francisco's Japan Center last January, starting off the 2008 show season right. Taking place in an underground parking structure, the J's event continued to bring out the best that NorCal has to offer. To add to the flavor, even SoCal peeps made the northward trek in hopes of representing their region. The standout trends this year continued to stem from the infamous K swap. From basic bolt-ons and ITB-equipped high-compression setups to fully built and boosted terrors, the swap that is sweeping the nation continues to make an impression at just about every event that matters. Wheel choices haven't changed dramatically, though the wild colors have certainly toned down since last year. As expected, custom plated engine bay parts, wire tucks and race-inspired insides and outsides remain at the top of most everyone's to-do list.

The J's event delivers. Of course, more than 300 cars, a live DJ, an award ceremony, numerous big name import models and a healthy presence of heavily modified Hondas on hand didn't hurt and, as always, the crowds are already asking for more. Rumors of this being the final event bounced off the low clearance ceiling all day but with this much success we're quite sure the JDM Theory crew will come up with something else. Time will tell.
