Default RL engine in an accord?

I was having this discussion with one of my friends, Could you fit the engine from an Acura RL/TL-S in a 2005 accord? I really don't think it can be done but he thinks it can and seems pretty confident, but I really don't see the point if you aren't getting the SH-AWD with it.

Anything can be done with the right amount of time and money. It probably wouldn't be ALL too difficult. since the V6 accords come with a J series motor already.

You'll have a lot of things to check out to see if those parts are interchangable to work with each other..most times changeing things from one car to another seem to not work good and the cost just keeps getting higher..Do you have say $5000.00 to get everything right?
If not, then reconsider something lower cost...

There isnt much in the car modification game that doesnt cost small fortunes.
