    if its a first gen tl...c-series....yes

    it it has a j-series block then yes also. YOu can do much more also. Swapping crank, rods, pistons, cams etc.

    If done right you will have quite the beast.

    Why not boost the stock engine... I'm sure like every other honda engine it could hold up well on 10 psi...?

    By boost, I meant turbo... IMO S/C a small displacement engine is a waste... S/C works better on big cube v8's and such... yea it'll make power on the V6, but turbo'd 3.2 TL... much sexier

    i pick a supercharger over a turbo because less maintnace. just put in the the supercharger you will never worry about over boosting.

    Any non-factory boosted car is going to have alot of maintnance. Supercharger or turbo. I wouldn't make a decision based on that. If you spend the money on a nice wastegate, overboost is going to be rare.

    yep i agree it seems like evryone that owns a tl cl rl or anyu higher end acura or honda pretty much anything other than a (civic,teg) does not look for speed or handeing but in my opinion i want my car to look good going fast and also be very luxury

    I had trouble reading that, but this thread is from 2007, I doubt they even own the car anymore.

    Just wanted to add, yes, you absolutely can buy all of that shit at Andy's, but Andy's is overpriced. The days of Andy's are waning...much better deals to be found elsewhere now...
