Hey guys, would it be better to buy a j35a8 and swap it in a 06 accord coupe or would it be better to just install the j35 head since doesnt all the j series run on the same block ?

transmission won't bolt up. Unless your getting one also. Also the wiring doesn't match up. You need to repin everything

If you are currently manual, you can buy the j35a8 long block, and buy a 07 Acura TL S clutch case housing and swap your tranny with it. should bolt right on.

Yes it's better to go with a j35a8. Way more power, way more torque than what a 3.2 can offer. Trust me.

Your transmission will bolt right on after you take off your clutch case housing, and install the TL-S one.

I meet a guy a meet that swapped a j35 from a 03 pilot and used an o07 six speed tranny. Into a hatch. I even checked the numbers and it was legit.

Is it bad that I've been thinking about this again. Just don't like wiring. ..

j35a8 and accord trans with swapped clutch case housing... only thing is still no lsd. :-(

Would we be able to get away with using a Accord or 04 TL ecu with an Accord harness with some small wiring? And use Ethans board to fuel correction?

So if this is the 'case' (no pun intended), that would essentially mean that all J series 6spd transmissions are identical internally, right? If so, that would confirm the 8G 6spd Final Drive could fit in our trans. :D :D :D :D

3.55 right? That along with smaller tires could maybe get 3.73?? :D

^ sounds like a plan. Especially since the car is capped at 130 anyways.

Exactly. Hwy mpg would go down but city would be better. 0-60 would be slower because of a shift before 60 but we would still be in 4th at the end of the 1/4

0-60 may be slightly slower, but the 1/4 mile ET/trap would surely be better. Probably wouldn't be cheap though, that's the only disadvantage.

OP: The J35a8 swap is much more involved and much more costly than the J32a3 block swap. The J30 heads will fit on the J32a3 block just fine. You would probably have another 10-15hp/ft-lbs throughout the powerband.

Easily. Your dynoing 270 right? I Love Cars dynoed 290 if I remember right? And that is before he puts on my 4" cai, I hope he gets to 300whp :up:
