04 accord j32A swap

I have an 04 accord 6speed and we just removed the j30 motor from and now were trying to drop in a j32a2 auto engine. We also got the ecu from a manual j32a2. Is there any modification that needs to be done to the auto engine to make it work on a manual ecu?

I'm no expert, but you may need to swap engine sensors from auto to manual.

I don't know if the auto and manual engines, for that generation, use the same type sensors or if the auto engine sensors would work with the manual ECU.

correct. j32a3 is what you need (04-06 TL), and you can use your stock j30 manual ecu, if you want to keep stock tuning as well.

Bolt ons are basic mods like intake and exhaust.

you may also need to add large Fuel injectors as well. I have been running lean in both banks since my swap. however I also have a CAI installed as well

There's a J35 swap civic pushing 700whp on Youtube. It's a dedicated track car but still.....
