Congrats on the 3.5 swap! Looks like you have come a really long ways with your sedan. It looks amazing compared to what you started out with. Props!

Wow that rust repair is amazing. That is what mine looked like before but it turned out nothing like yours but i didnt paint the whole car and used bondo.
Very nice I wish I had the skills to do that kind of bodywork!

Thanks all, definitely a long way since I got it and probably a long way yet to go. At some point I need to say "enough is enough" ...

Wasn't much motor work, did a leakdown test and decided not to bother pulling the heads while it was on a stand.

- JDM 3.5 (mileage and year unknown)
- 3.5 intake manifold, cams, fuel rails, exhaust manifolds, diff
- Changed timing belt/tensioner, balance shaft belt, and thermostat
- Sedan downpipe/y-pipe, transmission
- Injectors, valve covers, coil packs, coil pack bolts, water passage, EGR valve, steel vacuum lines, IAB solenoids, and rear transmission mount from my coupe
- Aluminum crankshaft pulley from Telion's gb last year
- Mount bracket done by The Crowing (thanks to a donor '91-'92 3.2 bracket I borrowed from Reboticon)
- Modified the 3.2 engine stiffener bracket to fit the 3.5 since my 3.5 didn't come with one (there will be details on this on the wiki soon)
- Put the alternator pulley from the JDM 3.5 on the Legend alternator since the JDM 3.5 has a wider alternator belt (and Telion's crankshaft is JDM style)
- New Koyo rad
- New rad hoses and vacuum lines (heater hoses didn't come in in time, they'll be getting changed later)
- New lower lower front ball joints (since I beat mine up pretty bad before I pulled the axles, in the future I'll be pulling the upper control arms instead)

That's a lot of bullet points, but it was a pretty uninteresting swap in terms of anything original or different (thankfully, it was my first engine swap so I didn't want to take chances).
