Finding a Tsx four doors V6 (not many sold) totalled in the back, you should have it.

Just think to build in an Lsd to make the gearbox and drive feel happy (this car was not designed to wear an heavy nose V6, the balance of the Tsx with V6 is affected compared to the K24 chassis feel and sportiness).

Lovely idea IMO, just hard to budget it tightly unless you find a salvage Tsx 4 doors V6 which has this setup from factory.

Just use the TSX V6 cradle, RLX 3.5 + TL 6MT SH-AWD and brains.

I bought the wagon because it was a Honda wagon, and I'm guessing we won't be seeing another one. I don't want another sedan, and I don't want another SUV.

Swapping in SH-AWD would take cargo space out of the back out of the car.

However, the car could use another 80 hp and doing a swap with nothing but OEM parts seems like a pretty cool idea. The V6 sedan parts should swap right in. Hell, the V6 sedan exhaust should work.

If you use facebook, there is a guy by the name of Ramon Phillips out in florida that has done this. Basically a complete swap from a wrecked nontech v6 sedan into a nontech wagon.
