Yes, I'm new, so please forgive my ignorance on the subject.

I don't even know if the engine is too big, but is it possible to transplant an Acura TL Type S engine into an Accord?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah I was thinking about this tooo, but then you have to realize by the time you are done you've spent enough just to buy yourself a new cl. I don't think the engine will fit. Possibly if you have a 6 cyl accord, but defninantly not on a 4 cyl... the engine layout is reversed for some of the components... it wouldn't work, if it did it'll cost you more than it's truly worth.

Yeah, money talks and in this case it would be a complete waste of it.

The motor alone is about the $8G price that Accordsibling posted. Not to mention that you'd at least need a new ECU, transmission and motor mounts (provided you have an F23A Accord). It may be slighty cheaper if you already had a J30A Accord.

My advice: just trade up for a TLS/CLS (CLS are going at discount rates right now). But if you want that horsepower level on an I4 Accord, you're looking at a motor buildup (bottem-end and valvetrain), tranny bulletproofing and then attaching a turbo kit to the setup. This may run you about $8G+, but your looking at about a 300hp possibility. BTW: Your I4 fuel economy would go right out the window. :D

I think its too expensive and impossible. Those horsepower numbers sound really good though. I wish someone would try to do it. Lates

w/ a cl-s tranny as well i assume? i wonder how that tranny is holding up under all that power, guess it must be quite a bit different from the av6 tranny.
