Naturally Aspirated / J32A3 Block with J35Z2 Crank and Rods?
« Last post by 000Camus000 on October 06, 2017, 09:33:12 pm »

I have my J32A3 egine open, ready to put new rings and all. I would like to know if I can swap the J35Z2 crank and rods from an Accord Sedan v6 3.5. I would like to keep my pistons, just change the rods and crank to have a little more displacement. This is a doable option? there is something I need to know first? This is for my Acura TL 3G 2004 Manual Transmission. I really would like to know if it's possible and if possible what differences are between then J35Z2 and let's say the classic J35A3.

Thanks in advance.

Hey guys I'm relatively new to the forums but need some info. I'm picking up a j32a3 and trans next week. Swapping into a 94 integra. I'll need to buy a drive by wire pedal and that's it. The piggy back should control the engine etc while the stock b18 ecu remains in place for the cars immobilizer or whatever. I found a good deal on this. Capable of doing wiring myself. Was some feedback from you guys if anyone has done similar. This aem allows me to control throttle positon sensor so I assume. It works for drive by wire.
Introduction / Hey! First Project ever, J swap 94 Integra

Hey guys my name is Austin. Joined the forum for technical  information and research. I'll be doing my first major swap with my 94 integra. I've already got a lead on a j32a2 auto motor and 02-05 TL 6 speed manual trans. Got a lot more parts to get but it's going to be a long term project. Especially with my first child coming home the beginning of this month. Super excited. I've really never got this technical with a build. But I'm eager to learn. I've done basic maintenance up to fixing a wrecked Accord and swapping heads etc. So this will be a learning process for me. Hopefully I'll find alot of help with you guys!

Firstly, I'm going to help with what I can.

Secondly, learn to use the website's search function.

Thirdly, the axles required for the swap are a combo of like 3 or 4 different axles from an 89 (or so) Accord, an 03 cl, some model TL, and a '97 CRV. I can't remember where I read all that, but I found it while searching (imagine that!). Anyway, my axles are made by Insaneshafts. They cost me $350 for the pair.

Fourthly, my swap is from an Accord, so wiring may be different from yours. I haven't gotten into it yet, but I'm going to the dealer and getting them to print me off some pin outs and schematics (I'm not looking for freebies: I'll pay what they want). I've built 2 b series harnesses and completely converted the ECU plugs from 2 different cars, so I'm not too worried about wiring. Does the 2004 Odyssey ECU have an immobilizer? If so, you need the ignition switch and key that goes with it, OR send the ECU off to have the immobilized disabled. Somebody (Rywire?) makes a thing for that. And, your ECU and harness are automatic, not manual; so that needs to be dealt with unless you're doing an auto j swap. But look up Rywire. I read they can do all kinds of things with your harness.

My dad and I run a garage in Hicksville, USA, about 1/4 mile back in the woods and 11 miles from the nearest town. I've been working with him since I was little, basically handing him what tools he needed. About 12 or 13, I got to start working with him (I was homeschooled, so I got awesome shop class ;D.)

He gave me my first truck when I was 16: a 1990 Chevy pickup with a v6. He got a 93 4x4 Chevy with a v6. Later on, he decided to sell his and buy a newer chevy truck with a 6.0, and I sold mine and got his 93. Kind of a trade. Still have it to this day!

I promise, I'm building up to something here.

A couple of years later, I met the girl who is now my wife. One night I was carrying her back home from the movies, and I noticed my temp gauge was pegged out. I whipped in to a service station that was right there and grabbed my flashlight. My upper hose had NO pressure on it, so I removed the radiator cap: no coolant. I could see the bottom in the plastic side tank. I poured a few gallons of water in and a few more at her parents' house. Next day, I filled it back up and pressurized the coolant system. Couldn't see water going anywhere. Cranked the truck, white smoke out the pipe. Aired up the cylinders with shop air and blew water straight up and out the filler neck of the radiator, all up my side! Good thing it wasn't hot... I parked the truck after putting 2 sets of heads on it in 2 weeks. I think the block was warped, but I never checked it (idiot).

The search for a car was on.

I came across the gateway to my Honda addiction: an automatic 1999 Accord LX. I think it had one of those F23's in it. Gave $3k for it 8 years ago. I drove it for a few years, and it developed a dead miss in cylinder 4. I found a JDM engine for about $600, so I just swapped that in. Drove it forever all over the country. Went all the way from MS to SC once!

Decided to start building a house, so I pulled the old Chevy out and swapped in a 5.7 V8 from Jeg's. I also retrofitted a dual electric fan assembly from a 2005 Silverado in it.

Heard about a guy selling a 2006 Accord a few years ago. I bought it for $4,500. It was great! Had a K24A4 in it, but it was automatic... I started researching what to do as I'd never really modded anything before. Installed cai, intake manifold, magnaflow resonator, underdrive pulleys, and TSX rear sway bar. Sway bar was the best upgrade out of what I did. Ended up selling my 99 Accord to my cousin.

Wife got pregnant with our baby girl! We bought a 2008 Odyssey, and I sold my 06 Accord. Kept everything but the sway bar.

Then I got to reading about swaps. Last year, I bought a 95 Integra GSR for $1,200 that needed some body work and some engine work, and I bought my 2000 Civic LX for $500 with a crappy interior, leaky trunk, automatic transmission, and knocking rod. I decided to do a b18c1 swap in my Civic from the GSR, which also meant I had to go auto to manual. No problems really. Wiring took a few days, but it was my first Honda swap.

Burned a valve. Decided to swap in a JDM B20 (high compression) as the cost was about the same. I missed the B18 though, but it's in my shop on a pallet. Drive it for awhile, then swapped everything back into the GSR.

And right now, I have a J30A4 engine, manual transmission, harness, ECU, ignition switch w/key, halfshaft, and shifter w/cables (plus some other stuff) from a 2003 Accord sitting in my shop. I ordered HASport mounts, Insaneshafts axles, and some other stuff to swap it all into my Civic. Fun times!

Awesome! I just registered on this site, so I'm trying to figure it out. I've got an 2000 EK I'm doing a swap in. You guys have crazy info!

With the CL trans...can you post a pic of where you mounted the bracket? I just got a CL trans and now read it's not a direct bolt up but can't find any images or detailed info
