It is my understanding the car Honda ever put the C32A6 into was the Gen 1 TL 3.2.

i have so many things going at once i forgot to check this post. sorry and thank you for the reply.

i guess i got one of those uncommon cars... or engine anyway. trying to google information or youtube etc on it always brings up the 2.5 and anything showing the 3.2 is 2g or above and maybe a splash of mine somewhere in between with little to no real information.
ive spent around $600 on parts this past week and the only item my parts store had in stock was the inner tie rod, everything else was special order.

i was blown away when they said $120 for intake manifold gasket set. i can already tell this car is going to be fun

According to the acura wiki page, the 1G TL 3.2 engine is the same as the 2G (90-95) acura legend and the 2G legend was only offered with the 3.2. As far as parts fitment I dont know what will crossover but yea, I'll do part number cross references to figure that out.

Hey Nick, you may want to check ( Car-Part.com ) for reference. For example, if you input, 97 Acura TL, 3.2 in their search engine, and look for A/C compressor, the search will bring up all models, and years, with comparable A/C compressors, "ie" the same compressor is used on 97, 00, 01,02,03,04 RL models, 96,97,98 TL, 3.2 models, 94, and 95 Acura legends, etc.

Legend 2nd Gen 91 to 95 it has the same engine (with a little differences...), same transmission, same front suspension.

In the case of the VSS, is the same for almost all 90's Honda. I recommend to buy a new one.
