What engines will directly swap in and bolt up to our transmission? Does anyone have a list? Reason I'm wondering is I'm thinking to do a 3.2 TL swap eventually.

ur gonna spend 2500 buks to gain 10hp and 10 tq???
+1

Loose some weight, and your existing ride will be faster. :bonk:
+2

Unless your going to have a fully built J32A, don't waste your time. Even if you decided to go fully built (port head, valve job, etc) still better to stay with the J30A4 and spend the money, time, and effort on what you got.

Just my 2Cent

yo...

to be honest...unless your engine is blown....

don't do this...

if your engine is blown up and your on a budget get a j32a3 junkyard motor and put new timing components in it...

if you have time and the money...just buy a j32a3 block from acura for $500 to 750 (depending on each individual stealership)

then buy a crank(MDX) and piston(cl-s/tl-s) and rods (MDX) and make you a stroker motor...
then when your ready to do the engine swap get your old J30 heads ported and now you have a stroker motor....
:up:

I plan on doing the J32A3 but only because my stock engine is dying....want something more powerfully, but at a budget which is why I'm choosing this.

Now I am just waiting for it to conk out on me....

What does a used j32 cost?

What's the average labor cost for the replacement?

anywhere from 650 to 1500.....

it depends on the mileage and the year model the engine came out of....

either way...put new timing components before you install...

With about 70,000 km's the engine is about $550 or so. Install I've been quoted at $800-$1000 (maybe more in case there are parts needed)

for the 7th gen you can buy the harness for in the dash for $90 to 100 from Honda new....the engine bay harness you should get with the engine otherwise it is 350 new I think....
