Japanese automakers have ascended the auto industry’s ladder to become some of the most popular and consumer friendly in the whole world.
Honda has been the world's largest motorcycle manufacturer since 1959, as well as the world's largest manufacturer of internal combustion engines measured by volume, producing more than 14 million internal combustion engines each year.

Honda car company became the second-largest Japanese automotive manufacturer in 2001 and a major player in the  sports cars bussiness. Honda was the eighth largest auto-mobile manufacturer in the world behind General Motors, Volkswagen Group, Toyota, Hyundai Motor Group, Ford, Nissan, and PSA in 2011.

Honda owners have created their own community. Their own Honda JDM subculture. Engine swaps and tuning is something casual !

Here is our top Honda Engines list:

J35Y4 (J series)


Great engine. You get what you paid for !

310 PS/ 3476cc / 369 N·m / stock performance

Honda introduced its 60-degree V6 J-series platform for the 1997 model year. Since then, it's been offered in a number of configurations and displacements, available in select trims and years of chassis including the Odyssey, Ridgeline, Pilot and Accord as well as the CL, TL, RL, TSX, TLX, RLX, RDX, MDX and ZDX. J-series engines were so widely produced and so prevalent in the U.S. that sourcing Japanese-versions is hardly necessary. If possible, look to the more powerful coil-on-plug engines and avoid those with drive-by-wire throttle bodies for the sake of swap simplicity.
Engine Swap Candidates: Any 1988-2000 Civic, CRX or del Sol as well as any 1994-2001 Integra. May also be transplanted into any 1990-1997 Accord.
Honda Vtec specs: Honda's single-cam, 60-degree J-series is the successor to its larger 90-degree V6 platform of decades past. Power varies significantly between platforms-as low as 240hp and as much as 310hp-with a combination of either VTEC Honda or i-VTEC available for all models.

Variable Cylinder Management

2014+ Acura RLX
Displacement: 3,476 cc (212.1 cu in)
Bore and stroke: 89 mm (3.5 in) x 93 mm (3.7 in)
Compression: 11.5:1
Power: 310 hp (230 kW) @ 6,500 rpm
Torque: 272 lb·ft (369 N·m) @ 4,500 rpm
Valvetrain: 24v SOHC VTEC (VTEC on intake and efxhaust valves)
Red Line: 6,800 rpm
Fuel cutoff: 7,200 rpm
Induction/Fuel Delivery: Naturally Aspirated - Direct Injection

Pros: There is no better bang for the buck than Honda's 60-degree V6 engine family. No place else can 240hp be had for so little money.

Cons: Aftermarket support is scarce when compared to other Honda engine platforms and at 550lbs, it's the heaviest of engine swaps into any of these chassis. If you somewhat manage to put it in it will increase your Honda Civic overall performance but the car will handle like a boat.
