    Accord V6... Puleeese~

    Alright this is going to be another cocky story but whatever, let's just hope accord owners don't start complaining Hahah jk they're nice cars but here's the story...

    I was driving home from UCI last night, and when I was on the street University (a curvy road) I passed by a V6 Accord that looks kinda fixed up and I had no intention of racing him becuase V6 Accords are all automatic and they're not too fast. After University turned into Jeffery which is a big straight street I came to stop at a red light. Surprisingly the Accord starts to rev at me!!! I was pretty shocked because all it has is like an exhaus, lots of fancy little dress ups (like brighter headlights, clear corner etc.) but at the same time I was kind of scared that he had a H22A, a supercharger, or maybe NOS. The light was pretty long so he kept on revving me, and when the light turned green I basically blew him away. By the time I'm almost at the next stop light he was way behind me. I could of passed that light while it was still yellow but I decided to stop and maybe talk to him since it's always fun to talk to other enthusiasts.

    I look to the left, the black accord has a pretty dark tint and he never rolled down the window to talk to me, so I was like whatever... But there he goes again, revving at me! This time I though I might as well just burn him again and not be nice anymore. So the light turns green, I hear him peel out, and then I see his hyperwhite headlights or whatever and then I flashed him with my hazards and I slow down, right when he passes me I step on it again in 3rd and blew by him again. I was being an ass but I didn't feel too bad since he asked for it.

    Ehh... sorry if this is not too interesting but even its an Accord it made my night. I should just be an ass and bring my digital camera with me next time and take a picture of all the cars that I burn

    Nice kill!

    Accord V6 engine(whatever it's called) = 200 hp/ 200 tq
    H22 = 200hp/around 150 tq

    Theoretically, Accord with H22 swap is suppose to be slower if the engine is still stock. but of course the H22 has a lot more potential and aftermarket support.

    Some Prelude tried to race me a while ago, and he did the same thing. I rolled down my window trying to talk to him or whatever, but he didn't even look over. Actually, he followed me all the way to my apartment complex. I was like wtf? and I tried to turn around and see what he wanted, but he then busted a U and took off.

    And yeah! Make sure you take your digital camera next time.

    Excellent kill! Nobody wants to race me any more... figures that once I started modding this thing, it would be this way.

    I need to get a BOV or something else obnoxious and see if that helps....

    yeah a H22A swap to an accord V6 is useless. Pretty much a waste of money. But a H22A swap into a civic/crx/del sol is a different story.
    Not many people modify their accords performance wise. Some of them have gen III drag kits tho, watch out for those.

    Nice kill. I note that a lot of the accord/civic drivers are like that - they get burned and just bugger off. WTF? So they lose, so what? Aw well, what can ya do? Gloat, maybe?

    Actually I have a friend with an Accord that has an H22. The JDM, not the american prelude motor. ITs considerably lighter than the V6 and has a manual transmission. Of course - he had a 2L SOHC VTEC orginially, so its not a swap from a V6 - but the manual and the weight might be a reason to do it.

    Yeah I think the Accord EuroR in Japan has the H22a Engine in there and it is lighter than the V6 Accords here but I think Accords are still more like a family car rather than a sports car.

    Coming from someone who just traded his AV6 for a WRX last Monday, I'll tell you--it was a waste of his gas to race you! I mean, come on, what is he trying to prove???

    I'm on www.accordv6.com and people there are putting 1000's into their car to "attempt" to get into the 13s. I'm talking:

    1. Comptech S/C
    2. Art Carr/Level10 Tranny upgrade
    3. I/H/E
    4. Unichip
    5. Etc., etc., etc.

    I spent around 3Gs on my Accord before I thought, "What the F--- am i doing?!?!?!?"

    People with Accords (well, Honda in general) that want to race are usually out to prove something. Now, when those Integs/Civics start boosting, it gets interesting.

    Nice kill...

    Though I must run this by you:

    My GF's dad has '98 Acura 3.0 CL, which is basicly an Accord. Auto tranny.

    He just recently ran a 12.0x at E-town in NJ. This was on a 125 shot of nitrous, a bunch of other bits and pieces, and a few drag strip setup tricks.

    I personally have little interest in modifying a FWD auto car, but some of them can turn out to be rather fast.

    That's pretty sweet. The CL and the TLs are both awasome, especially the Type-S but if I were to get a nice sports sedan like that I would probably not fix it up.

    These people are pathetic on V6accord.com. Look at this quote:

    "Try taking those 5.0 Mustang automatics!! I love seeing the look on their faces when an AV6 hands them their ass!! I killed my friend Rusty with his 91' 5.0 Auto with headers, filter, exhaust and i beat one last night that was stock. My friend pulled a 16.2 in the 1/4 and I pulled a 15.6. It's very laughable."

    These guys are proud of the high 15 sec 1/4 miles and their cars cost more than ours! I love it!!!! Thanks Subaru

    I just traded my 98 Honda Accord V6 for a WRX Wagon. the Accord is a nice car and I liked it but no where near the performance of the WRX.
