    I'm gonna be looking to source a USDM J30 longblock from somewhere. I don't need any of the accessories or the trans, or anything, just the longblock.

    Can anyone recommend a good source for USDM Honda longblocks? Preferably on the cheap? Thanks

    They sell USDM and JDM shortblocks, longblocks, and complete changeovers.

    3.0 VTEC V6 out of a late '90s Accord V6.

    And thanks Havok, I'll check them out.

    Local boneyard has nothing, I already checked there.

    Thanks for that, B. I have no idea. As long as they have the same bellhousing bolt pattern I don't care.

    call your local scrap yard back and ask them to see if they can locate one for you, most slavage yards are part of some type of part network...

    Shinglehouse Slough Auto Salvage is a godforsaken crater with like 3 cars in it. There ain't shit for wrecking yards around here.

    I think I found my motor.

    I need a J32 out of a '96-'98 Acura TL. If anyone happens to see one for under a grand, let me know y0. Thanks all.
