    Four times the torque? I'm guessing that person still counts on their fingers.

    LOL, that's what I was thinking.... Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't a full stage 2 protune good for about 250whp and 310 to 330 tq on a base wrx?

    Depends on the year, but yeah.

    My stageII + protune made 240/240 to the wheels on a conservative tune. Granted, I am on the 2.0L, but even the 2.5L would be lucky to hit 250/330.

    How so? Other then different powerbands I dont see an arguement here.

    I will say there is a huge difference between 250 hp (na) with no torque compared to 250hp with torque.

    +1 to that. And, I think our measly little cars put out enough of that, especially the 2.5l ones.

    I could be wrong here but I thinking he means if a AWD drive car is putting down 250 whp through 4 wheels and the FWD is putting down the same 250whp but through the 2 front wheels. From a rolling go the FWD is going to have the advantage because of less drive train loss. The Accord in this video has not dyno'd but most Accord with those mods are good for 240/250whp as is the stage 2 wrx. Also the Accord is actually heavier than the wrx (Accord 3298/ WRX3085) You can clearly see the Accord is quicker from a roll on the WRX stage2...... That's my .02 cents of what he meant(I hope). Also this is the only Honda(car) that puts down a little over 200 wheel TQ with these mods(besides a NSX). Low 200 wheel tq is not a huge thing but it's almost un heard of from a Honda

    those mods will not put down 250 whp on a accord. it has 244 to the crank
    i highly doubt those mods will add more than 30 whp

    It's the area under the curve that Honda has traditionally had trouble with. Their no-torque wonders have to spin to ridiculous RPM to get a good horsepower rating. The problem with that is the first 6k rpm are gutless. If you can keep them at sewing-machine revs, they go ok, I guess.

    You'd think that by now their engineers would have experienced torque in other engines and would want some of it for themselves. The new Accord is a step in that direction.

    Too bad Hyundai is going to have a production sedan with a V8 and RWD before Honda/Acura does. I can't wait to see how their upcoming Genesis coupe does compared to the Accord too, v6 to v6.

    the new accord coupes look nice too, saw one the other day and it was pretty sweet. I am surprised though that it beat a stage 2 WRX..... do you guys think the WRX driver might not know what he was doing? like started out of boost or something? wrong gear? Or is this legit?

    He'll find out in the spring but he's counting on at least 240whp on a dyno jet

    The driver of the stage 2 needless to say can drive and he's pretty right foot happy racing other cars(friends). He was on it and was in the right gear, lol

    This is mostly true for most Honda's reving and making peak HP at 8000rpm or higher sometimes. The Accord V6 is different is has TQ down low for grunt aqnd makes peak HP around 6300/6500rpm and redline is at 6800rpm so in that sense it's not your typical Honda wind up toy, lol. The specs on that Hyundai V8 do look really impressive. Putting out well over 300hp and RWD.
