J series NSX
« on: August 13, 2016, 05:15:51 am »
I found some interesting info on the NSX forums that seams to not be mentioned on here. so as we know the c30 and c32 engines are used in the NSX. the old accords used c27 and the old RL used c35. some people thought a quick replacement would be a c27 as a cheap way to get it back on the road or a c35 for that extra displacement. it ended up that these engines don't bolt into the NSX. so upon further investigation of the bellhousing bolt pattern they found that it is a redesign to be the precursor to the J series. in fact it's the same. a 1st Gen  (98-07ish) j series will bolt right to a NSX transmission. there is some business needed for the pilot bearing but the bellhousing all lines up. Honda actually had a j series NSX for one of the pikes peak runs but it's hard to find technical information about it.

just some food for thought.

Are we talking about the J-series bell housing bolts up to the NSX transmission?
