    I have a first gen c-rv with over 400k miles on it. Still runs great but has got to be one of the most under powered hondas I have ever owned. I have a front clip off of a 2001 accord V6 from the shift lever to the front bumper. I know there are other swaps that would be perfered but this is what I have at my disposal. Ihave been in the motor swaping biz for about 8 yaers now but have never done anything with a V6. Anybody that can help would be awesome.........

    Iv seen it done but you have to get custom mounts made and shift linkage and fuel lines but the one i seen was in an ef hatch and it was boosted he didnt have a hood cause the motor sat to high in the gar it was at hot import nights in miami

    the only reason i would do it is if it were rear wheel drive. Its already bad enough to be to toast the tires with 4 cylinders. Now you want to add torque to a FWD? not a good i dea unless you want to spend gobs of money. Only to then realize you could have gotten the same result with a smaller motor for less the amount of money. If you have the hook ups to make it cheap then do it. its kinda creative.
