J30 VS J35


Recommended Posts

I am not only new to this site but also new to the Honda brand. Last Honda I owned was a 1992 Accord LX.

This one I bought from a friend of mine for $500 after it over heated on him and seized the engine.

It is a 2003 Accord 3.0 v6 6th vin digit is a 6. I believe it has the J30 engine?

While I was doing my research on used engines, I noticed Honda also made a 3.5 engine that same year for the Odyssey. As far as I can tell by looking at pictures of that engine, the mounting brackets not only look the same but are in the same location of the Accord even if the Odyssey is a Van.

I am new to Honda but not new to working on cars as a hobby. I downloaded a service manual published by American Honda Company Inc. An incredibly detailed manual.

Since there is not much difference between the 3.0 and the 3.5 Honda engines as far as pricing is concerned. Anyone here has experience to tell me if it is possible to put one in an Accord and/or what kind of modifications am I looking at? My main concern is the wiring, the plugs.

As soon as this issue is resolved, Ill be posting a question about turbo changing and HP.

This is how my engine looks like today.


Thank you
