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.
