New member - first post. If I misstep please let me know. 2006 RL with bad engine. Honda says to remove the engine from the bottom - has anyone ever taken it out the top? If so what did you run into? Also, has anyone ever put a Pilot engine in a ridgeline? All of my problems are on the bottom end - can move everything to the new engine. Can get a Pilot engine for $325 vs. $1800 for the RL engine. Any advice is appreciated.
