More accurately, it will fit IF you're an excellent mechanic/engineer or have a boat load of cash at the ready.

I think OEM is the best look. I just don't happen to think any of the various arrangements of OEM got it exactly right all at once

Clearly wrong. That engine is designed to fit transverse in an engine bay. G2s fit the engine longitudinally. You can tell just by looking at it. Don't let these guys pull your chain. It won't bolt up. Use the search button for the 3.5L engine swap if you're looking for a beefier power plant.

You know, a website which sells engines would know a lot more than a forum of the car they sell engines for; they must be right.

Good lord, I think an NSX question is more forgiving than this.

Guys, he is obviously new, and searching for a new motor. That's his second motor thread....We should be helping him out and (hopefully) the forum will grow, which means more GB's, and better buying power. Everyone is new at some point....

old engine

hey i got 192 thousand miles on my legend i would just start looking for another one but i got a manual sedan and it took forever to find. anyway i dont know to many people who can swap an engine how do you find a machanic willing to do the job? also what do you think is more practicle and realistic finding a new manual LS or GS legend or swaping the engine out of my 92 LS and putting a nice new engine in?
