V6 manual Engine Swap

This is my first post in V6P.
The engine of my v6 manual was dead during the road course in willow spring, now I am planning to swap j32a3 or j35a8 with TL-S transmission for my car. I did some research before so I know the j32a3 can fit the v6 accord and j35a8 can fit the v6 accord when coming with the TL-S transmission.
Now I am looking for a guy in SoCal who can swap the engine and set up new ECU for my car. Also, can anyone tell me what is the fair price for the engine swap or engine + transmission swap?

Also, If i still want to use my old Transmission, Can I just ask any mechanic who doesn't install LSD before to install an LSD from TL to my old Transmission?

I did a 05 j32a3 swap on my car not even 3 months ago, everything is pretty much plug and play except for one little sensor on the intake manifold, depending on whether you have a an auto or manual you should grab the TL ecu that matches your transmission, What I mean by that is= I have a manual, and swapped in a 05 j32a3 so I grabbed the ecu from a 04 TL manual and had my key flashed at a keysmith in my neighborhood. I did the research and many people said the stock accord ecu is fine but i ran lean the whole time on stock ecu, not even wide open throttle.

If you do a j35a8 swap, you’re on your own lol I know ECU wiring is a bit different because of the whole CAN situation, you even gotta use a jumper harness from Hondata so I decided not to go that route.

You can swap the j35a8 and use stock harness. Only a few sensors are different plugs. You can still run it a 04 tl ecu but just have to monitor or if u have a wideband to see if it runs lean at wot.

My j35 build(3.2 block with j35a8 head and internals, so basically built my own j35a8 lol) is running on a 04 tl ecu n my afr at wot is around 12ish.
