I hate seeing a car that is super nice on the outside, but as soon as you pop the hood it's affraid. Just kind of ruins the whole car. As I always say, a clean engine is a happy engine. (Actually, I've never said that before...)

Much appreciated. Know how to weld? That I need to learn how to do.

Have I ever told you I love you? Very Happy

I plan on getting a SS 3" exhaust kit. If you're interested in helping weld it together, I'll provide the beer.

i dont have a problem with that, but my TIG is not portable. So you would have to bring the exhaust to my house... the only thing I ask is you pay for the welding rod, the argon gas, and a little bit for the electricity bill. A couple hours of welding adds up to a huge portion of my electric bill affraid

Nope, the J32A2 seems pretty rare actually. I haven't seen many around. Looking in the range of $1,200(engine+transmission) hopefully. After that's in I'll enjoy it for a while, and still look for a deal on a J35A8

these engines are a dime a dozen at junkyards... the problem is 90% of them are automatics with over 100k :-\

Yea, there's actually 3 up on ebay right now. 2 for about $500 shipped, 90-100k on them. The other is $1,200 + shipping for unknown mileage.

Engine only. Transmissions for J-series are a little easier to find.

^Super rare still. IIRC the best option is the J35A8 from the 2007 TL-S because of a certain sensor. The guy who dropped the J35A8 in his 5th gen said something about Acura changing a sensor to that of a different type, and because of that the after market EMS's don't work for it...

Thinking though, there's also the J35Z3 and J35Z6

If the VCM(variable cylinder management) on a J35Z2 would work with a manual transmission that would be an option as well...

Either way all of those engines are '07 or newer.

scratch the Z2, doesn't look like that VCM system will cooperate with ANYTHING.

Damn drive-by-wire systems too.

I need to pressure wash mine out soon. We'll just do that with the engine out. A ton of stuff to do as soon as weather warms up a bit here.
