The "Go All Out" 3.5 Swap w/6 Speed Tranny List, Prices, and Teaser Pics Thread!!!

Let me start off by saying that if anyone here plans on doing a 3.5 swap with a 6 speed and is wanting to go all out and do it right, please make sure you have the bank to back up your ideas or else you will be seiously disaponited after making just a few purchases. I have been keeping track of everything that has been spent towards this now 3 month project and I got to say...GOD DAMN!! I almost fell over once I got the figure. I'll let you do the math.

I am usually a smart shopper when it comes to buying parts. I search for the good deals so I would say that these prices are what most of you will encounter, that is if you plan to put your money where your mouth is and mod your Legend to the max!

I am just about to wrap up my project and I got to tell you, I cant wait until it is over. Its pure torture not being able to drive my baby, seeing it sit so sadly in the driveway stripped naked!

As you will notice, I bought two 3.5 motors, the first one I stripped down to send the heads in for work, never protected the block from moisture like an ass and next thing I know my cylinder walls are rusted out. Cheapest solution...buy another engine!

Thanks for all the complimets guys, this has been a dream of mine since 11th grade so now that I have graduated from college and have a good job I figured I would treat myself to one of the badest Legends around.

Damn dude, you pretty much mirrored me. Course... I may be adding a few things in the mix now. I was debating doing the NSX computer and something else....

As long as everything is tested and works out I will explain. I just want to be sure before I give out info.
