What are the max hp/tq and rpm values we can see in a fully built J35/36 for a daily driver? I've never been big into s/c or t/c if anyone suggests just doing that...

I see that nighthawk got 322 with his TL-s J35 ( :bowdown: ) but I'm wondering what else can be done to make more?

His c.r. was 11.5, can that be raised any (12:1 or 12.5:1) and still work on pump gas?


Late next year I plan to do a full build to a J36 and wondering what I can look forward to like the possibility 350whp?

If anyone has done better than his build, I'd like to know your results.

Josh, if you get this build done we should definitely meet up! :)
What a gold digger! He only wants to meet up if you get the build done!!! :p

The J35/36 has a lot of potential. I believe above 12.5:1 is pushing it on pump gas, but I'm not sure. That may be the highest you can go. E85 would make more hp, and if there are stations around you (and as long as you get tuned for it!) I would suggest that. With full bolt ons/11:1 CR/TL-s cams, ported head/tune, you can expect anywhere from 310-315whp and 295-305wtq. With a bump up to 12:1 CR, I'd assume 325/315. Add into this Bisimoto cams and another tune, I'd expect 350whp to be possible on pump gas. E85 maybe 365 or so. I'm just speculating on the E85 gains btw.

Kiet has his motor tuned on Greddy eManage blue if I'm not mistaken. Now he has the TL-s ecu, so that helps because it's reflashable and can 'hold on' to the tune. However, if he were to use a full standalone like the J&R ecu, I wouldn't be surprised if he were to see over 330whp with a fatter powerband than he already has.

With a FULLY built N/A motor (like some B/K series have), I'd go so far as to say the J's can put out somewhere in the neighborhood of 400whp. This motor is really missing out on a good cam. Again, we are limited as to how much lift we can use on a cam because of the way the rocker setup is designed (I think), but a larger lift cam can surely be used, and endless possibilites of duration. Hope this helps :up:

from what I have read on Acurazine people are having some pinging issue stock. So 12.5:1 cr would really be pushing it.

also adding to what sonic said. We really need a good ECU to tune it. The AEM FIC is just not enough. It can't do timing advance.

Good input so far. We need some of the experts to enrichen the thread too.

I thought there was a standalone available?

Also, from the motorcycle world, their engines are running 13:1 on premium gas. Is it because the cylinder and combustion temps get too high in our engines or is it about the timing issue?

^ the AEM stand alone is for the older J-series. There is one protype that are working on the acura TL but not one has it on their accord.

I think Kiet got the Emanage to work but not 100% sure if it can do timing and what not.

Yes the J&R standalone ecu is for the TL/Accord. It is a full standalone in terms of the engine capabilities, but leaves the stock ecu in place to keep all the luxury perks intact. Of course this applies more to the TL, but is similar for the Accord.

Apparently the Greddy can increase timing, but I read reviews on it and it's surprisingly inaccurate.

Anyone know of someone on this site using the Bisimoto cams? Im thinking of saving up and doing a re-build by next summer and would like some higher revs if possible. Just point me in the right direction.

J&R = $1400.

Someone on Acurazine has the Bisimoto Stage 2 cams. His username is "gerzand." He has a full bolt on 5AT TL (I/PCDs/Jpipe/Exhaust/ported runners/intake mani/stage 2 cams/tune. He ran the 1/4 mile before/after, trapped 99 before and 103 after. That's a huge gain. And these were both done on 19" wheels. He has a track setup with 16s which will probably get him up to 105+ traps, which is basically unheard of for a 6MT TL let alone a 5AT.

I'll be sure to get some numbers in before and after... coming from another 5AT maybe sometime in the spring or summer though. I will also be going to FL and get some numbers from a superb tuner there. Comparison between a Marlyand Raceway, Florida Raceway without changing to much on newly built j36 by Paul.

In terms of rev capabilities on the stock valvetrain, I believe Paul had mentioned that above 7600RPM or so, the rods start to fail. However, I wouldn't rev the stock valvetrain past 7200.

Although the TL-s valvetrain is stronger and lighter, I don't think it's rev capabilities are any better than our springs. Apparently a 5AT 3.2TL over on Azine made 320whp with full bolt ons/port work/stage 2 cams/J&R ECU tune. I don't believe he is revving any higher than stock but I could be very wrong. Some of the J32 swaps are revving over 7000, but I'm not sure exactly how much higher.

^ Thanks for that answer. Too bad our heads aren't dohc. I'd want to just get a little more revs so 7000-7200 isn't bad.

And Wow a 3.2 making 320whp? Thats like 115 hp/L for an auto. I may just want to do a j32 build as it would be cheaper. Hmmm...

i love the j series, but i would only fully build one if money was no option, and i really just loved my accord.

when it comes down to spending 4-5 g's on a build, i would much rather pick a dif platform.

I agree with six6 man, for the money you would dump into really getting power out of the J series you could sell the car, spend the upgrade money, and buy a much better platform for a build.
