Just thinking out loud: I have a friend with a TSX wagon. How nuts would it be to swap in the V6 / 6 speed from the sedan?

I own a TSX Wagon since new. Excellent vehicle. 

When I bought it, I test drove V6 TSX Sedan and 2.4L 4 cyl TSX Sedan.  The V6 had lot more get up and go, but personally IMHO, I don't think its worth the added grunt of the v6, for the amount of trouble it will be. 

 

Personally I would do the supercharger on the TSX Wagon (bunch of SC guys on Acurazine) and call it a day. HeelToe has them.

But I encourage you to do it, if thats your thing.

If you have to ask how bad of an idea it is, then you should probably move to accomplish said idea.

As you probably know around here bad ideas are highly encouraged, and typically touted as good ones

I've tossed out the V6 part of the question. Now I'm just thinking about the transmission swap. 5 speed auto to the 6 speed manual.
