RWD

Does anyone know what it would cost to convert the legend to RWD and even if this is possible? Also what would it cost to replace the engine with one out of a newer NSX? Thanks for your help.

The NSX motor is simple, and a few of the guys have done it. Pretty sure it costs about $2500 in labour, plus the cost of the motor. ($10,000 - 20,000)

Not sure about the conversion to RWD. Most who have switched to the NSX motor have done AWD.

Remove 2 10mm bolts, remove old engine, install NSX engine, and reinstall both 10mm bolts.

You'll need to make sure you reinstall the bolts using a torque wrench, tighten to 120 ft lbs.

Also you may need to relocate some grounding locations in your engine bay and recalibrate your speedometer to make up for the increased top speed on the nsx motor.

Mike, be fair, those are NOT 10mm bolts, ANYBODY knows that 10mm is too small to hold our engines in, it's more like a rounded off 12mm



Although everything else DOES seem to be 8 or 10mm...

Some say it's not worth sticking an NSeX engine in because you need to upgrade the axles so they can withstand the added power; but I say go for it, because everyone whose done it before knows that VTEC kicks ass.

I think that you loose your spare tyre if you convert your Legend to NSX...

/\ naw thats only if u put one in the back. I've been hesitant to do that with mine. I wanna keep my back seats and subs. but it will be a vast improvement on the AWD i have rigged up right now, two engines would be awesome though

BTW ALL THIS INFO CAN BE USING THE SEARCH FEATURE!

i'm pretty sure this thread is lock worthy.......
