I was under the impression that the tranny doesn't bolt up? Or at least that is what I have read in a number of threads.

I would assume it would work if you also have a tranny coming with the j35?

they all bolt up depending on what clutch case housing you use.

There are different bell housings for J35's. Depends on what year the J35 and car it came out of.

So no he's not sure.

yo...

let's clarify some things...

a j35a4 and a j35a8 both fit the

TL type S MANUAL transmission that came with a J35a8 engine....
2007-2008 ACURA TL Type S....

the older pilot and ody motors fit for the 6th gen because of sensor sets and ALSO the bell housing fits the 2003-2007 Honda 6mt accord transmission or the 2004-2206 acura tl 6mt transmission...



I hope this helps you....


fyi...I would go j32a3 and bore it out and use a MDX crankshaft (j36)

or buy a j35a8.....which then means you need different bell housing for the regular 6mt accord or acura tl 6mt tranny to work...or you could get a j35a8 6mt...

Yes this help me.

I don't care about the sensor. I want to know for the bell housing.

So if I want to go MT with j35 from MDX 2004-2006 or RL 2005+ I need the MT from TL-S 07-08 ?? this same MT fit on J37 ??

THANKS ALOT for your help.

yes for the j35...

for the j37 I have no idea....

also with a j35a8 you can bore it out if needed...

or you can buy a j32a3 and bore it out and use a mdx crank and rods and you now have a J36!!!!

For a 7th gen you can use the j35a8,j32a3,j35a7......
these motors have the biggest intake valves from the factory... oh so does the cl-s motor as well..
j35a1 and a4 are better suited for the 6th gen...

I will go with j32a2 or 3 with TL manual transmission 2004-2006.

The crank and rods from MDX fit in the J32a2 ??

If you are looking for a direct PnP Swap, J32a3.

If you are looking to swap out crank and rods, you are better off tearing down your stock engine and swapping it into that. Any engine builder with the right tools, to machine, balance, and install can do it for you.

You do not want to use a J32a2 in a 7th gen. It doesn't make sense.

the j35a8 is same for the auto tl-s and the 6mt tl-s i believe. 6mt tl-s are very hard to find so find an auto one and take that engine, should be the exact same.

that is correct...
also you can use a regular tl 6MT transmission and
just buy the different bellhousing....

my personal opinion I have never seen the j35a8 cylinder head or valves in person.....

but I like the j32a3 valves and I think the motor is very strokeable and is made easier to breathe better by some port and polishing......

the block and cylinder heads are identical. So a J30a4 is just as strokable as a j32a3. No difference.

Stroking = Replacing crank for bigger displacement.

Blocks are different...each has a diff type of sleeve liners....
j32a3 has better liners.... which you would want for the stroking purpose....

stroke has nothing to do with the sleeves.

Sleeves on the J30A1,4,5 blocks are FRM, so no forged pistons, and bore is 86mm, now a J32A3 block from a 04-06 TL is steel sleeved and is 89mm.

This is what I meant Kiet....resleeving to me on a j30a4 is not worth it....
no forged pistons will ever run on a FRM sleeve for me!!!!
been there done that....

Honestly bro, as a friend, I recommend you say less about these J-engines cause you've got it completely wrong and just making a fool of yourself. I don't know where you're getting your information from.

The stock sleeves on a j30 is 86MM, for 86mm pistons. You can over bore it and run oversized pistons if you want. That's an option, however the cylinder walls will be reduced in size. If you don't boost, there's not much of a concern there and should be safe. NO J-series engines come with forged pistons. The term forged pistons get tossed around alot, and honestly, a true forged piston will have to be purchased from outside of Honda from companies like CP, BluePrint, JE, etc.

Resleeving a J30a4 is completely worth it. Why wouldn't it be? When you resleeve a block, you are putting in aftermarket sleeves. You are honing the stock cylinder walls out. Do you even know what sleeving is because it sounds like you don't.

Anytime you see someone resleeve a block, they are strengthening the cylinder walls. Anytime you hear about forged pistons, they are replacing the stock pistons with something stronger. Same with rods.

Don't confuse yourself bro..... cause it totally sounds like you have no idea what sleeving is...

I totally understand what I am saying...

I am not spending money on AFTERMARKET sleeves....

THAT BEING SAID....

for MY application I will be using forged pistons and rods....
most people use forged(CP,ROSS,JG,WISECO) pistons or cl-s pistons...which do not do well with frm sleeves...that is what I was talking about...

whether someone wants to sleeve the j30a4 is up to them....

I am buying a j32a3 and recommened the OP to do the same...

As far as forged pistons goes....TONS OF PEOPLE MAKE THEM FOR THE J.....I won't say how to get them because I had to spend some $K to find out.....meaning buying the pistons and checking my DAM self...not on anyone else's dime....


I know what I am talking about...
and I know NO ONE other than 3 or 4 people will ever use LA or DARTON sleeve (COST AND MONEY) on a j30a4 or j32a3.....

so that's why I recommended the OP a j32a3...
Dude not to be an ass...but I probably have more ASE credentials than you....

my point was giving a recommendation that was not
expensive or impossible for the OP to achieve without spending $5 or $6K....

It is the second revision of the single exit exhaust head...
1st model was j30a4...
so From Honda the j32a3 was designed to flow more exhaust and have diff cam profiles to achieve the 270hp...
but they (exhaust ports)look the same...
my biggest notice was that the j32a3 valve is cut diff than the j30a4...or at least the ones I have run into....
I think these valves flow better because of the way they are cut on the backside....looks like more air in the low range...
