Sometimes Theme Tuesday ideas just kind of pop into my head and won’t leave and today’s post on Honda J Swaps is exactly one of those. There was no trigger car or anything like that, the idea just came to me and wouldn’t leave.
For those of you not super familiar with Honda power plants (I am no expert myself) the J is one of Honda’s two V6 motor families. The motor is normally found in the Odyssey, Accord, Acura RDX and so forth.
It makes, depending on donor vehicle, anywhere from 200 to 286 hp in factory trim. The biggest downside to this motor is its size. To give the oil pan plenty of clearance it has to be mounted in such a way that you need to cut the hood, or run no hood at all, for it to work.
