AV6 2007 Accord Trans on 2005 Acura TL

Hi guys,


My trans is on its way out on my 2005 Acura TL
I know how bad the automatic Acura TL transmissions are so i went out and started researching the best option.
After doing heavy research on this forum and others, I learned that an AV6 2006-2007 Accord Trans Non-Hybrid is the best choice
and it will fit the Acura TL.


The AV6 swap involves swapping in a transmission from an Accord V6. This transmission has the exact same gear ratios as the TL Type-S and is virtually a direct bolt on replacement, with some parts that need to be swapped.

In general, Honda 3-shaft 5 speed transmissions are interchangeable. Since Honda made some changes that greatly improved the reliability after 2005, what most people are doing is replacing their 2nd gen TL transmission with a unit sourced from a 2006 or 2007 Honda Accord V6 (non-hybrid).

Most of the information that i've found is basically for 2nd Gen Acura TL's
There's not too much detailed info for a Accord AV6 trans swap on 3rd Gen TL (although some had said that it will work)

This saturday, I will be swapping a 2007 Accord V6 Automatic transmission w/ 91,000 Miles in a 2005 Acura TL (Automatic)
If anyone has done this before on a 2005 Acura TL or has any knowledge of what i should look out for, PLEASE COMMENT!
Some say yes it will work and some say no it wont fully function, if you've done this and its been working for you i'd like to hear from you.

Straight swap but you need to use the TL position range switch

There have been multiple threads talking about this in the past month or two. Pretty sure in those threads there are links to the bigger thread that has all of the AV6 transmission swap details in it.

MODS: Can we find or create something in the garage about this? Seems to be coming up in the forums more often and searching for a conclusive answer isn't exactly the easiest. The majority of us who have been around for a while know it off the top of our heads, but someone new will not easily stumble across the correct threads.

I am planning on doing this also. Was it a straightforward swap? My 05 TL transmission is not taking high or reverse.
