It should be a direct drop out the old one, drop in the new one. Haha, not quite that easy, but the engines should be near identical I think. I'm pretty sure the same V6 went into the 2000 that went into the 2002.

yup ..... 2000 until 2002 had the same distributorless J30A1 engine. IMO, if you are going to swap the engine, a 6MT would be in order too. That engine is a beast ...... so much that it rips through the auto trannies that Honda bolts to it. Also, the engine can be built to put out 600HP, but the tranny can't handle the stock power.

lol the issues with the transmission are DESIGN related and NOT POWER related.

differential bearings are substandard
2nd gear clutch pack receives less lubrication than other gears
2nd gear overheat (oil jet fix)
