C32B Vtec Engines... Any Experience?

Has anyone modfied their car with a C32B Vtec performance engine? I was just curious whether they would fit into an accord. They give a heck of lot of Torque.

with money, anything is possible.

it probably wont fit without major modification because the C32 is a 90 degree engine and DOHC, so it will be a lot bigger than a J-series V6. and even if it will fit, there probably wont be any transmissions that will bolt up to it because its made for an MR drive train.

the C32B is over 10 years old in technology with no updates or upgrades along the way. sure, it was high tech and state of the art 10 years ago, but now its not really anything special.

a J35 makes much more torque, and in newer versions (RL, TL-S) make about the same amount of power. the J37 (MDX) makes even more torque and more power. it'd be easier to swap in a J-series because the engines are so closely related that most things will just bolt up. you can even do J32/J35 hybrids (some blocks only bolt up to certain transmissions). not to mention it'd be much cheaper since the J-series is everywhere. it'd be hard to find an NSX engine.

I would just go with new J35 which has more torque at lower rpm.

J35
hp 268 6200
Tq 248 5000
Compression: 10.0:1/10.5:1
Bore: 89.0 mm
Stroke: 93.0 mm

In light vehicle i guess the NSX be more fun to drive due to higher revving, but in a Accord id pick 3.5L.

the accord makes plenty of power as is. work on your suspension!

you'd just about have to find a TL Type-S 07+ engine to make the swap beneficial. The Accord 3.5 has cylinder deactivation.

The J series is on SOHC. I want the DOHC and one that closely resembles the power of a Acura TL.

the SOHC j-series is readily keeping up with the new DOHC motors from nissan (VQ35) and toyota (2GR). so i dont see why DOHC is a big deal.

and an engine that closely resembles the power of an acura TL would be....an acura TL engine....

if you want TL power, i'd be much cheaper to sell your car and buy a TL anyways. and you get all the other TL goodies too (audio system, HIDs, styling, etc).

Why do you want DOHC?
Do a search of the forum on Timing belts vs. timing chains. you will get some interesting information in regards to the j-series.

heh. All interesting information nevertheless. I have one question in regards to SOHC and DOHC wthin the V6 model engines.

How much noticable is the torque in either brand? The reason why I preferred DOHC is because it seemed more torque could be achieved. Since I only know the basics, all I know that I could do to improve my engine performance would to add a ram air intake which is skeptical because I would want a brand that filters most (meaning 99.9%) of dirt and bring cold air.

Superchargers are great but I can't add it without wearing down my pistons.
