Link to full version of this video: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-web/13-premium-content-videos/ 1587-2004-acura-3-2l-tl-engine-replacement-full-version This is the first installment of the 2004 3.2L TL Engine Replacement series. There's a bit of a bonus with this series in that the vehicle getting the engine has a manual transmission. The engine we're using came out of a vehicle with an automatic. So for those of you interested in an automatic to manual swap, this gives you a pretty good indication of what you're up against. BTW, you would also need to swap computers if you were going from automatic to manual.
