your on crack dude.

The 3.5L has more torque, reliable, and balance shaft.

Put type 2 intake valves and cams in your heads and reassemble and your set.

Would any of the J series engines fit easily in the RL without much modification? specifically something like the J35A3 out of the MDX or new RL

Nope. You'd be the first if you succeeded.

why would you do that?

3.2L pulling around an almost 4000lb. car....are you mad?

why a downgrade? there isn't anything more than you can do to the C32A besides chip/exhaust/intake...and even still it won't be much of a difference when you take into account the extra weight in the RL.

no way.
