Car 1: 1992 Acura Legend Coupe

Xclusive's Coupe Build Log

3.5 Type 2 Hybrid Swap

Well I am about to start my 3.5 swap into my 92 Acura Legend AT Coupe (the sedan is geting put on the back burner to this is done). My current motor has 165k and smokes very bad probaly from bad valve seals. Instead of going in doing valve seals, hg's, etc I just decided to swap the engine. My reason for doing the 3.5 swap was more for reliability than speed. I was able to pick up a 2002 3.5 RL motor with 29k. I have been collecting parts and I am doing a Type 2 hybrid swap with type 2 cams, type 2 fuel rails and fuel pressure regulator & type 2 throttle body with TCS. I will take many pics along the way and hopefully consolidate alot of misc information that is spread around in different threads. I will also add up the cost as well for others who plan to do this in the future (the cost does start to add up quickly I can already tell you). The countdown begins as Jonslegend will be coming up this weekend to help me out with the swap. Well some pics so far and many more to come.
