J series technical questions / Saturn j35a3 6 spd
« Last post by HondaSteve on August 18, 2017, 02:03:29 am »
Hello all from j32a, so i own two of the Saturn Vue v6 AWD suvs, one being a 2005 in black, and a 2004 in blue, both with the j35a3 motors as factory options. Well from what i have collected GM rebadged the j35a3 as the L66, it is identical to the MDX j35a3 except it has cast internals unlike the factory forged internals of the MDX motor. None the less I have been nothing but impressed with the way these things move. But enough about the motor, my problem is this dreadful honda 5AT bolted to my motor! Im at 186k in the 05 and the tranny is beginning to show signs of slippage. When i blow this tranny out i plan to attempt the (from what i researched) the first ever 05 Vue j35 6 spd. From what i have gathered the 03-07 accord j30 6 spd should bolt up to an Oddy j35 block, which is essentially the same block as my L66 j35a3. As for the shifter and cables and pedals, ill grab some from a Vue with a 4 cyl 5 spd. So i can bolt a 6 spd From the accord in my saturn, install the needed shifter, cables, pedals, clutch master cylinder and clutch line, axles etc. The only thing bothering me, and the reason im posting here, is because i cant figure out what im going to do ECU wise? I cant really run any honda mt ecu because the ecu in my Vue is a honda ecu modified by motorola to work with the saturn systems like climate controls and what not. I need some insight as i do not want to swap to manual run into the horrid limp mode 3k redline, when attempting to use my stock AT saturn ecu. Im guessing an AEM could work for this but i dont fully understand how they work, just 1400$ and poof, limp mode gone? How so? Also what ecus are people using out there who swap their j35s from auto to manual? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

i actually just passed smog course level 1 and level 2.. Just turned in my application to become a California smog tech.. * no i wont hot smog ur shit *

im gonna bar and Ref a 03 j23a2 motor into my obd1 eg hatch or 96 obd2a integra 4dr gsr..

ur Best option is to Buy a WHOLE cls 6spd 03 vehicle and swap everything... Gas tank and all.. I know when u bar and ref a k20a2 type S motor.. U have to swap Fuel Tanks.  Ill figure it out..

P.s new Bar and Ref Rule for any VTEC swaps.. U MUST go to a Honda or ACURA dealer and have them check ur ECU and make sure it isnt FLASHED .. they will print u a certificate that says u passed. which u turn into ur REF while hes inspecting ur vehicle.. No certificate.. NO PASS.. how do i know ?.. i already bar and ref a 96 b18b1 LS motor into my 96 ek hatch.. I was bar and refing a 96 b18c1 GSR motor.. and failed for no certificate.. Honda is charging $120 to do the test and print out the certificate..

every Honda and Acura dealer should Know about this.. the certificate requirement Just came out 2017

personallt i find it easier to just run a 03 CLS 6speed shifter and cables..

if ur gonna run k20 rsx K tuned cables.. grab that shifter 2.. and remmeber to use the j series v6 cable stay * cable bracket mount on the tranny *..

i tried running 03-07 accord k24 cables and Shifter.. it wouldnt mount onto the J series cable stay.. it needs a K24 accord cable stay.. it uses BOLTS to bolt down the cable to the cable stay.. isntead of that normal CLIP.. J series and k20 rsx uses..
