Not a CL, but one in HEART 03 3.5L CL-S (56K)

I've been registered here, i guess its been erased for inactivity. Well anyways, I've had this swap for about 4 months now, a little over 2,000 miles on it. it is a 03 CL-S engine/transmission. HOWEVER, it includes 01 Odyssey Crankshaft/connecting rods. which obviously strokes it into a 3.5L. I've had the tranny swapped a few years, but about a year ago, i cracked the rear engine mount out of the engine, taking pieces of it with the screws. So with the car sitting I slowly bought parts and built up the engine. Engine was built by Jae @ 5050Movement in Lyndhurst NJ.

Comments Welcome

Out with the Old



Flat Black'd the engine bay


Block back from machine shop


Head coming together(07 TL-S Exhaust Valve Springs)


Heartless


Cradle Shimmed for hood clearance (along with cutting the Innovative mounts)


new heart 3.2 CL-S w/ 3.5 internals


a peak at my Omni-Power clutch master cylinder


UR UnderDrive Pulleys


Oil Catch Can


Aeromotive FPR (walbro 255 fuel pump in tank already)


NRG torque Damper and Innovative mounts



3.5 6spd, Mishimoto Aluminum Radiator, Fujita Intake, A lot of $$$







This is my complete mod list and Member Ride over At 6thGenAccord

Video


NOTE car sounds A LOT better in person, almost G35ish... camera does NOT do justice

Nice work Mike. I remember meeting you and seeing your car at Jae's previous shop in Fort Lee back when you were doing the trans swap I believe. What's the address of Jae's new shop? I'd like to stop by and see how he's doing and get some work done as well. Been trying to hit him up for a while but I'm sure he's been really busy with the new shop and all.

Congrats on the swap!

SWEET, just don't like the shimming of the cradle might be better to trim the hood or pop it, but understandable (if you are set on the way it would be better to get a solid spacer and not just washers, also get them bigger diameter so it contacts further out and makes it more resistent to flexing

Trimming the hood plus the 09 Manifold may fit without shiming.

<sigh>, my red 02 accord is for sale because I just bought an 03 CLS to get more power and the tranny... blending the two would have been wonderful if only money wasn't an issue! :S

i dont mean to be harsh, but when you paint your car a custom color, you dont expect someone who probably lives 10 minutes from where you live to go out and paint the same exact car the same exact color. i can see if he had a different front lip, or a 4dr or something, but if you put them side by side they are same characteristics : (note i used to have 05 TL wheels)

and then everyone mistake his car for yours. when you knowing your cars bodywork and paint quality is so much better then his. i work at a bodyshop, a really high end body shop and i dont like people thinking thats the kind of work we do

his wheels are not 05 tl wheels though,

you proably got a deep discount on the high end paintjob though which always helps
