    k
    so havent posted in here in awhile
    and cant find my last post
    but
    to jack jill
    and all the other peeps helpin me about a month or two ago
    i finally got my car
    2001 honda accord coupe 4 cylinder vtec
    little over 65k miles on it
    automatic transmission
    leather interior
    its ballin
    but i wanna get more horses kickin out
    i heard hooking up a cold air intake will add a few but nothing special
    new exhaust system and new headers will help also
    but that only adds 10-15 (maybe) for all those combine
    and i wanna get more low pitched growl whenever i start my baby
    anybody?
    suggestions?

    atom- intake exhaust and a header would let the engine breath better, and give you that growl...but thats about all...besides helping ANY future modifications....oh yea and maybe a few more mpg, but once you do those things, you'll prolly be drivin the car harder....so it wont matter about the gas mileage

    now if you wanna get serious with that car and make some power with it on a budget you can keep the auto tranny, and get an h22 longblock out of a prelude, or....you can go ahead and get the full swap, and then convert to manual....but thats not worth it

    you'd be better off finding a similar accord with more miles on it and a manual tranny, then use the extra money from your nice accord with 65k on it towards your motor and shit...

    hahaha i could talk about this shit all day....but thats what car forums are for....
    ps. I LOVE HONDAS
    i got 3.

    oh yea, dont go cheap on your parts...you trust your life with this car right?

    Is that 1st one a suzuki swuft with an s13 front end? or some other hatch with an s13 front end? Either way it looks disgusting, S13 FRONTS SHOULD ONLY BE ON S13's AND OTHER NISSANS!!!

    if you want a manual
    but no one in your family can drive one
    look into getting a tiptronic or sportronic transmission
    with a tiptronic you can switch when the car shifts gears on the tachometer
    its hard to explain kind of
    and with a sportronic it can be both
    but in the manual mode you just click the gear selector to one side and thats how you shift up and down or switch it back to automatic and its auto
    but those kinds of transmissions are mainly on newer cars
    so if you can go for that


    and
    help increasing horsepower, low growl, and sexiness on 2001 coupe accord please?
    i am gettign a cold air intake for sure
    idk about new headers
    how expensive would that be?
    i am also looking into getting some underglow neons
    but that would take a while to save up for
    i checked with my autoparts store and they ve got the bulbs for about 120 a peice
    depending on color
    and i am not 100% sure how to install those
    but i have some friends who do so i ll talk to them

    soon im buying a 1.8vti engine with integra gearbox....then im doing a transplant into a Ford Escort RS turbo 1989 model....Then I will upgrading the suspension, brakes tyres wheels etc....then will add the normal induction and new exhaust systems....have the engine polished and i might even do a rebuild of certain parts of the engine......then will upgrade certain engines parts such as the manifold to cope with the a turbo....then i will buy a bolt on turbo kit.....then hopefully will have a fast escort :p It all shouldn't work out more than about 6,000 pounds when i looked and did my research and it will be a very nice project car......

    Also thats looks like the front end of a Ford Sierra Cosworth but yep near enough the same engine as the Escort Cosworth....I actually think the Escort Cossy is much nicer and worth he extra money shame they are like 15K for a fairly decent one.....but then again they never seem to go down in value :)

    Yeah I don't care, Honestly where are you going to be able to use all that power? Sure its powerful but so what powerful cars are more of an I-need-to compensate-more-than-you-fest than anything else.
