I have a few questions. What if you wanted to keep it auto? (yeah I know they are crap 1-2 gear issues blah blah) What would you need to keep it auto? I bought a j32a2 for $150 (no harness) and plan to swap intakes to get rid of the butterflies. But I'm lost as far as the harness goes. I know I can't use the tl/cl ecu with the accord trans. So vtec controller? I read on v6p where people have used the j30 harness on the j35 ody motor. Since I'm not using the butterfly intake could I do the same. That seems like it would be more of a plug and play deal.
