There seems to have been a good amount of intrest in my 3.5L thread, well in about 3-4 weeks I should finally have all the parts together and prepped to assemble the engine. And I was wondering how many members in the area would like to come over and watch the assembly. This would happen on a Saturday and I am in the Ashburn area of Northern VA, about 2 miles from Dulles airport.

Every one, please post your normal weekend avaliblilty, I am willing to move it around so that as many as possible can come. This is going to be a good 6-8 hour process (allowing for some Murphy and BS time). And if we ask real nice, my wife might even give us some grub.

There are a couple more 7th gens on bwimports.org. That website is more dedicated to locals with accords and so on. You should check out the site. Most of them use to be on V6P. A couple of them still post and here: raddy21 and TELELE, both very chill and coo peoplez.

Im down for any saturday afternoon, and I can do sunday morning until the end of this month in which i will be able to do all day.

If you postpone until July 1st (sunday) i can do all day. U will also give time for ppl to get their schedules squared of to see this ultimate mod go down.

Nope, I am usually getting off work around 5PM and then doing family stuff, now for 5 weeks this summer we are without kids as they go with thier "father", so this opens up the possibility.

So this ia a 6SP into a 6th gen?

What engine ,tranny, EMS?

Has anyone thay you know of done the combo of stuff from above sucessfuly?

Sounds like fun, but it is a lot of work, especially in the reasearch of what is direct bolt up, mod, total fabricate, so I guess my first question to you , is how much research have you done so far?

Currently i have a 3.0 V6 J30a Looking to bolt on a TL-S 6 spd transmission bolts directly on. I think know 10 ppl have done it on this website alone if not more than that. I have done quite a bit of research i have a full parts list and cost. Know my next step is finding someone who can do it and how long its going to take. Umm try searching 6spd swap and there is a whole thread on it
