Hi all, I just picked up a 2010 Pilot with a busted engine. I managed to get a good low mileage salvaged engine J35Z4, only issue was that it came from a AWD model and my pilot is a FWD model. As far as I know the blocks should be essentially be the same and I should be able to slap my old transmission and wire harness and be good to go. I was just curious about everyone's input if I might come across any issues. Thanks in advance.

The intake is different IIRC. One has a butterfly vavle, the other does not. You should be able to reuse your intake.

Hi guys just wanted to give an update, I just finished my engine swap, so going with what the previous poster said, I did use my old intake manifold, however the two did look the same, but I switched just to be sure. Aside from that I found no difference between using an engine coming from an AWD and using it on a FWD transmission and wire harness. Started up with no problems and no check engine lights.
