2004 Acura TL engine swap

Ok this might sound kind of stupid but I bought an 04 tl with no motor or trans ! I went and bought an 03 motor and trans for a good deal and I want to know would everything fit ? Iím replacing the 04 motor mounts with 03 motor mounts and Iím changing the intake/throttle body ... is there anything else I might need to change ?

Very good question....that I never thought I would see on here. Being they are different generation vehicles, there is a good chance there are other differences mechanically as well as with the computer. I do not know enough about the differences in the engine generations to know what else differs between the years. I would be more concerned about electrical/computer differences.

Thinking about that swap if I ever need a motor for my Accord. Only 10 hp more but an extra 40 lb-ft torque would really be nice.
