1998 Honda Accord Question: Turn into a type S

What does it take to turn a 3.2 into a 3.2S. Whats the difference in the 2 motors. -
Answer 1
Are you asking about the Acura TL? The '99 Accord had a 3.0L V6 The Type S has different cam profiles, higher compression & redline, and the intake/exhaust flow more. It's probably more practical to find a J32B with ECU/harness than trying to retrofit your J32A to be up the Type S spec. The Type S also has different suspension/brakes and wheels. You might run into smog problems doing a motor swap like this so make sure you check the local laws -
