6mt swap!

Hey everyone, the time has finally come for my swap to begin. Going to go from 5at to 3.2 tl 6mt with lsd. Was originally going to go with the type s but apparently it doesn't hold any more power than the 3.2 tranny. Could I use the Accord 6mt ecu with the tl tranny? Any info or links to threads would be appreciated.

You do know a TL-s LSD trans will run you around 1000 alone right?

What ecu should I use? I was thinking the Accord Mt ecu, but plan to swap a j32a3 in near future. Can I get the tl ecu? Will anything need to be rewired with a new ecu? Is a shifter relay required?

Already did. And emailed a few days ago. I'm stuck right now on which ecu to use. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Have the specs and/or part numbers for the needed shims been shared anywhere? Self LSD install is a great idea.

I'm actually curious on this as well.

Curious on your source too. Haven't seen many options for that around.

You're in pretty uncharted v6p area, nobody has a real complete step by step list. Hell we have to import our parts lists from Azine.
The trend usually holds true, it's cheaper to resell and rebuy than to swap.

If you really want to get it done though, give guardian imports a call. They'll be your best bet.
