Re: Acura Cl 3.5 Conversion???? (Gotballs)

I think it had to be the engine from the NSX, C32B with 6 speed manual trans. It usually had 280 HP on flywheel (JDM Spec.), but I think the HP would be higher in Euro and US Specs because it had to be restricted at 280 HP in Japan.<p>SuN<br>:D<BR><BR>

Actually it's just a stroke job bringing the current 3.2L up to 3.5L. It's offered by Rick Case Acura down in Florida for around $2500. You pretty much get a whole new top-end from what I hear which is nice because you can save the stock top-end or resell it and make back some of the cost.<p>It offers a boost to crank numbers of around 300hp/260torque, up from 260hp/232torque. Dyno graph is around somewhere in the bowels of acura-cl.com but I can't find it right now.<p>One guy who lives down in Florida just got it done and ran at a 1/8th mile track. His times equate to mid-to-high 13s in the quarter mile. I wish he'd just run a 1/4 mile instead of the wimpy 1/8th. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>It's a sweet mod, and it puts the CLS up to a performance notch above any of the immediate competitors like the Maxima, G35, 330ci, or A4.<p>Doing it in conjunction with the usual bolt-ons (CAI, headers, and pulleys) should net some decent numbers.<p>The reason they didn't just use the 3.5L from the MDX or NSX is that they are a different style V6 (90degree V I believe, versus our 60degree V in the TL/CL) and the MDX in particular has weaker flow characteristics for the valves, etc, than just stroking the current fine-breathing J32A2.<p>The guy who had his done has the 5speed auto. I'd like to see a 6speed 2003 CLS with the 3.5L upgrade, bolt-ons, and Comptech supercharger and aftercooler. That's easily 12s, and with the right tuning, tires, and suspension setup, low 12s at the track. <p>Being FWD I don't think the CLS is worth making into a fast car. Mine has a lot of suspension work because it's fun through the twisties. I love the growl of the VTEC on my J32A2 though, and whatever car I get next I'm sure won't compare when it comes to the engine note (unless it's an inline turbo car because that's my favorite engine note). <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>
