    I had to strip all the OBD II wiring and everything off the RL engine and use all the Legend electronics. I had to swap around a few wires, and relocate some vacuum hoses. The hardest part was making a hybrid mount out of the RL and Legend passenger front mount. The driver front mount bolted right up.

    Otherwise, for $800, it's the best mod I've ever done on a Legend.

    Unfortunately, due to a new house purchase and all the expenses, my "to do" list and dyno tune has been pushed back to spring time. Hopefully, I'll be pushing this heavy pig to 13's before going with forced induction. With the 3.2L, my best track time was 15.3@92mph. That was with a 230,000 mile clutch and worn tires.

    That crap was HOT.

    Yes, Christian is the innovator of the swap. He owns the yellow Sedan. He's been at this for quite a few years, so I have a lot of catching up to do.

    Thanks, it's a Georgia car, so no rust anywhere.

    96 to 04 Acura RL's all had C35A engines. They changed over to the J series engine in 2005.
