A modified 2003 CL Type S 6MT arrived at my local junkyard this past Friday the 13th.

Friday afternoon I snagged the '06 TL wheels, as well as the 4pot Rotora calipers. The next morning I grabbed the J32A2 engine, manual transmission, wiring harness, shifter cables, shiftbox, ECU, mounts, and accessories.

I left the subframe there because I wasn't sure if it was bent due to it having front end collision. I also left the steering rack, as I'm not sure if I needed it.

I made sure to grab all of the items that I figured were in higher demand. I can go back and get anything else I didn't get.

I've tried to search on this forum, yet every thread I've found is a bunch of pussies saying it can't be done, that they should search, etc, etc, only to have the last post from some 'omniscient' moderator closing the thread, saying it can't be done.

I'd post pics but...

Reverse searching the Honda Parts Catalog looks like I've found two unique parts that I'll need.
* Subframe
* Steering rack

Okay, so I think I figured out how to link images from my google photos. Here's what I got.

Friday afternoon, rolling the TL wheels across the junkyard.

If you don't want the front rotors, I might be interested in buying them if you go back for other parts.

Awesome find Bense! I'm confused as to why you were told it couldn't be done on your car though, from memory I can't recall any extreme differences between the two chassis'. It might not be tangible but a bunch of folks have opted to swap their dashes and center console with the CL-S's, so maybe look into that. And if you do make sure to snag the dash subframe as well.

Curious side note: Are you planning on switching the wheel hubs with the acura's? I think all 4cyls came with 4 lugs right?

Sweet deal, especially on the Rotora BBK and Tein coils!! Wow.. Someone must have had a bad day when they were forced to leave those behind..
