Can I swap a type S 3.5L engine into my 2006 Acura TL ?

Yes, BUT....



Is yours an automatic or a manual?



What year is your TL?



Are you up to buying a parts car TypeS for the swap?



Are you mechanically inclined?



And most importantly...



Do YOU feel comfortable spending more money on building a car that you could probably get for cheaper and without the headaches.



Unless you need a new engine and have some extreme attachment to your current TL, I'm fairly certain an engine swap would yeild less benefits over simply buying a clean TypeS.

For starters, the Type-S engine will not bolt up to the 2006 transmission.

Welcome to the forums.

Since this is a topic/technical issue which will require replies and discussion, this thread has been moved from the New Member Introductions forum to the model specific forum.

You may be able to swap a J35A6 out of the 05+ Odyssey (LX/EX only) non-VCM. Still lots of new low end torque to be found with this non-type-S 3.5L.

teh CL did it on his 05 TL-6. Checkout his thread below:
