J35 swap, please help

I have used this website for plenty info and miss. Let me start by telling you what I've got.

I have a j30a5 in my 2006 accord ex sedan 6 speed.
P2R manifold spacer
P2R TB spacer custom 4in short ram intake in a custom cold air damn built onto the factory air box with an extra tube run to the passenger wheel.
Rv6 precat deletes
Atlp jpipe v2
Bosal metallic sub converter
Custom exhaust 2" mid pipe to a 2.25" resonator located at the rear to 1.75" dual pipes and turbo xl mufflers
UR pulley with belt
Truhart struts
Tein S springs
Tls sway bars front and rear
Rest is stock

Ok down to what I'm trying to get done
I'm looking to put a j35a6 from odyssey or pilot and was wondering if my bolt ins that I have on my current engine would fit the new engine considering I've read that there's little missing to do to get 're engine in there

I will be swapping my ecu out for an 07-08 tl's mt and using the harness and flashpro

I will also be shooting to get an 04-06 tl 6 speed for the limited slip from the j32a3 which I understand should bolt up to my engine which me and it should bolt up to the j35a6, correct?

I'm going to replace the cams in the j35 with the rl cams

For the engine, can I use my bolt ons?
What do I need to do to make sure I don't run lean or rich?
Will this all bolt up?
What are the best tunes with the flashpro for this setup?
What's the max rev for the j35a6 with my setup?
Do I need to change anything else out while I'm at it?

I think that's it. Any help and info is greatly appreciated and yes I'm a bit of a newbie, I'm 21 but I grew up with a master mechanic and have don't everything to this car myself and he will be helping me with the engine, tranny, ecu swap. You guys are awesome! Thanks. Looking to get this done soonish

Why not try to source a J35 from an RL? That will eliminate the need for a cam swap. Not sure if the bellhousing is 6 speed compatible though.

It's not i would need the 07-08 tranny from tl if I did that but main thing, I'm going to keep my current engine and tranny as back up case there is nothing wrong with them. So I want everything to be interchangeable if needed

The best J35 swap is a J35A8 w 6 Speed Manual Transmission from an 07-08 Acura TL Type S. You need the transmission because the bell housing on the J35A8 is different from the J30A4/5 found in the 03-07 Accord, and early model 04-06 J32A3 TL. A J35A8 can be had for about $1000-1400 for the motor and $1000-1500 for the transmission. Possibly less if you look hard. Check ebay, craigslist, facebook clasified, and junkyards to locate a motor.

Will my current exhaust, intake and pulley setup fit the j35a8?
