I have a 2006 av6 accord and was wondering exactly what I need to do a engine swap with a j32. I can’t seem to find exactly what engine I need to be considered “plug and play”. Help is needed!

If you're using a manual TL engine into a manual accord, you'll just need the ecu and to repin 3 pins on the ecu plug. Everything else is plug and play. Same goes for auto TL into auto accord.

If you're using an auto TL engine into a manual accord, you'll have to use the coolant passage from the manual engine, or cap off the unused ports on the auto coolant passage.

So my car is the 5 speed auto and the engine I have my eyes on is from a auto Acura. My question is now do I still need to repin the 3 pins on the ecu? Also what about the immobilizer? All the vids I saw on YouTube didn’t mention that.
