J32a3 Swap

Well this build will be continuing from my flashpro dyno thread which I never finished. I had the chance to get hold of a 85k 2006 3.2 Tl motor(for only $595) anndddd so I did!

I will complete the dyno after I clean, build and swap this motor in, probably in 3 weeks or so. Trying to get a hold of Type S heads or MDX heads but can only find the front bank, otherwise I'll just get type s cams. So if anyone has any cylinder heads of this sort, lemme know!

I'm stuck right now on getting the crank pulley bolt out so I can get the timing cover off. Impact isn't doing it, I'll try heat and later the 50mm crank pulley socket if heat doesn't work.












Mmmm so clean

I have 2010 MDX heads and ported 8G runners. Thinking about selling.

there a set of TL-S heads without camshaft on acurazine.

To get that stupid crank bold off they had to use a 3/4in Impacted. Took 5 sec. lol 1/2 wasn't cutting it

Porting some stock J30A5 heads with TL-S valve springs (Intake and Exhaust side). Also have a set of ported runners to go with them.

You have some options now, LOL . Honestly my pic would be Sonnicks offer, if he sells (which he shouldn't !!). You get the heads from him, dont work them. You can deck them for compression if you want but you will be 12:1 compression.

Great find on that engine BTW, looks really clean, lower miles and great price !

Yeah I'd be interested in the MDX heads. I heard if we deck the heads it will screw up timing on SOHC engines? I can tune of course, but I would be re tunning on an E-Tune so my car would be running like crap until it gets sorted out a couple days later.

You should be fine with a 1pt deck. Even though ideally you want to do piston to upgrade cr. My head is deck for .4 cr. And a lot of other are a full 1 CR

found a complete head for 600

oh dang $600. I'm hopping on that thanks! Will these heads work with all my 3.2 stuff? Runners, coolant passages etc.?

Go on ebay then. There are a couple for around $500 and even with the shipping cost/delivery it could be less than $900. Look for the ones that ship freight. Then its just a delivery fee. So you could get one for around $600

Sorry but this is completely necessary, this goes to all honda crank pulley bolts.





Had to use a 50mm crank socket for the middle of the crank pulley on a breaker bar attached to a cheater bar which was braced on the bottom of the engine stand.

Then had to use another breaker bar with a cheater bar attached to the crank bolt and almost snapped the damn engine off its stand...so ridiculous.

Anyway, I got both complete TL-S heads for only $450!!! So ill clean them up when they get here, new timing belt and water pump, then time to swap!

^ how do your pistons look ? You can clean them with some light abrasive scotch bright if they have some build up.

But that will microscopically lower compression! How dare you.
I actually do have some scotchbrite pad, but it wouldn't really do anything but look pretty =/ lol

Soak the piston in ATF. It will help remove some of the deposit and keep the cylinder oiled

I just used throttle body cleaner, scotchbrite and then lubed up the cylinders with royal purple. Worked very well, specially the throttle body cleaner.

Are the piston rings still good?
How about crank bearings?

I've seen quiet a few cheap longblocks. I'd probably want to rebuild one if I did it so that would drive the price up but it is definitely a great option.

the crank pulley isn't bad. you should have done that from the beginning. a 1/2 impact will work as long as you have sufficient PSI going to the impact.

You think that Honda crank pulley is bad, Try 2JZ crank pulleys.

question...

are you going to port the exhaust ports on the cylinder heads?

I think you should have that done if you can afford it...
