THE V6 ACCORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes. The engine is the same but, I believe Honda did a few design changes before they put it in the Accord. I would do some investigating before I added the headers from the Accord to your legend. Another thing I was looking at the headers for a 3.0 CL and they look as if they would fit a G1 legend. Any thoughts on this matter? Peace and Blessings. Bigs out.:)

Comptech is in El Dorado Hills right down the road from where we had the meet. They are pretty cool in there, but they are very pricey, and tend to focus on all the second Gen Acuras. I asked about First Gen Stuff and they couldn't do a whole lot for me.

From the December 1994 Car and Driver road test of the Accord V6:

Next, we talked to the engine guys. The say the Accord's 2.7-liter V-6 is "95 percent new," with new heads and manifolds and a revised block. The remaining 5 percent was carried over from the engine in the 1988-'91 (sic) Acura Legend Coupe.

Ok Ok, but what if you put the 94-97 Accord heads on your G1 Legend? Are the headbolts lined up the same? Are all the coolant and oil passages the same? If so then you could get the heads and put the headers on.....its a lot of work for headers but hey, thats some commitment to performance there :D

That would seem logically possible, though I am not completely sure.
