    Today I was doing some last minute grocery runs for our Christmas dinner I ran into a Accord coupe. It left hard for a 3.0 I'm thinking but I could barely leave him behind and I was like Jesus Christ. I was maxed in 5th gear while he just cruise by without any hard effort pass my four banger on 7psi=205 HP. We came to a stoplight and I ask whats under there? He replied a full Acura CLS swap. These engines are no joke when they scream like a V8 sucking in air, its scary!

    Well this is good to hear. Currently buying parts to finish my collection before I start tearing mine down. Also where do you live? Did you get the guys name?

    Everytime I see or hear about a j23 swap I wish more and more that I had a v6 to build.

    Didn't get his name but I always see his car driving around in east orange NJ. I'm telling y'all that the open throttle on those things sounds like a monster because he didn't have a loud exhaust. The intake sound is so ridiculous:henry:

    I agree because people rate them at 220HP modified and 305HP with the AEM Series 2 Plug & Play EMS ECU Honda J Series. Getting one of these swap for $3,000 would still be cheaper and reliable than my little four banger snail turbo. I am thinking to buy a salvage v6 accord because that CLS show down was a shocker.
