Hello everyone, this is my first post here.

I picked up a 2001 odyssey with the j35A1 engine in it and a 95 civic ex for around 300 bucks. I have found some good information across the web about builds similar to this.

I’m not worried about the custom fab work and I know it will be a lengthy process overall.
being that I live in Michigan I’ll have plenty of time to work on it during the winter.

The main issue that I am having is finding compatible transmissions. Most build guides point to the manual 6 speed trans. But I was curious how hard it would be to actually mount an auto trans onto the j35a1 since the engine already has an auto trans on it anyway.

thanks in advance
