Well, you claim that its a show car. So why would you be worried about losing a few feet of torque when you have no plans to race the car???

In all honesty, I think ricing out a car is really a waste of money. Do you want to look cool or do you want to win? I'd rather win. My moto is one ive had ever since I started getting involed with cars....If it doesn't make you go faster, DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.

lol some people have their head stuck on speeeeeeeed. you know... according to what you are saying 'Accordguy40', you wasted HUGE money by getting 04 AV6 6-spd.

You could get much faster car with much potential with that money. HaHa.

guess my car is rice out as well and mQike's most definitely.

Yes you can just have two pipes but IMO doesn't look really good. Just get Y pipe... or just ask mufflershop to make Y pipe.

or... do some crazy stuff and make it real dual exhuasts

Hey, if you go and get a custom exhaust made you can ask the guy to use smaller diameter piping on the Y pipe. This will cause better back pressure so you wont loose torque.

Here's a question. What do these cars have in common:
  • Honda S2000
  • Dodge Neon SRT-4
  • Mazda 6 (4-cyl.)
  • Audi A4 1.8 (4-cyl.)

And most importantly: The Acura TSX.

They're all 4-bangers with dual exhausts. I'm sure there are more too. How do they pull it off without losing any torque? Or are they losing torque? And I say most importantly the Acura TSX because we 4-banger Accords share the same exact engine components as the TSX.

Small exhaust pipe, and a resonator to cut down on the noise which creats back pressure. These dual exhaust are also not true dual exausts so you are not loosing as much back pressure as one would think.

don't get dual on a four banger.
you are just wasting money.
it adds weight and also loses torque.
if you really like dual exhaust you should trade in and get
v6 or just go for cars that really have functional need for dual exhaust. to me accord is not a racer and should not be riced out.
when i see people with lambo doors slammed to the ground it makes me wonder why they are choosing to do this on a mass produced car that weren't intended to be a racer.
if you want to have racy look with some performance go get 3z or rx8. not a hater

You got to remember that the V6 accord's exhausts aren't true duals either, unless the 7th gen is true, I know the 6th isnt. I think you should go for it if you feel like it. I saw a 4banger with dual exhausts, I thought it looked weird because it didnt have the right trim and the v6 badge and had 4 lug rims.

They have dual outlet mufflers. Use one. Looks better then a y-pipe IMO. Y-pipes just scream FAKE DUAL EXAUST HERE to me.

^^^ you can hide y pipe under body and just show two outcoming pipes... which I am planning to do as I get rear lip. I've already checked my underside and planned detailed piping.

Some may think it is 'ricey' but hell, I like it and that is all what matters.

At first, it kinda felt a little slower at low-end simply because... it is louder yet car isn't really pulling fast. haha. but yea, I think it is about same as stock after comparing it with my friend's stock I4.

It does not improve performance probably (I don't want to waste money to dyno my car). I suppose to lose low-end and gain high-end but it is just same as stock IMO. 100% totally for show.

If you are thinking of performance wise, don't do it. Definitely not worth it for the greenies.

gme2001, is that 3'' on V6? Isn't that too big for our accords? I think that is way too big even for V6s...

^^^ that is possible but will take some time to figure where to position the muffler and how the pipe will go. There isn't much space to play around under our car except very rear...

I always make modifications to MY automobiles to suit MY taste not others.

If you want dual exhaust then do it.

I've driven vehicles straight from the dealers lot directly to body shops, tire shops or repair shops just so I can get something changed to my liking.

Before I had 100 miles on this car I had the rear H emblem and mirrors (hideous black trim) and brackets painted to match the color of the car, the front emblem and flying wing painted Honda flat black, I removed the V-6 and ACCORD emblem everything under the rear painted black to hide annoying looking shiny metal nuts and bolts and anything else that was shiny also the rear tow hook painted black so it wouldn't standout like a sore thumb.

I installed a Borla Cat Back exhaust and I painted all visible signs of shiny metal on it black the only thing you see from the rear of my automobile is the chrome tips I believe why draw attention to mufflers in MY opinion mufflers are ugly and why draw attention from your automobile to some big ugly shiny cylinder hanging below your car. This modification was done just for some added sound that was lacking with the stock and was not done to gain any horsepower.

I also replaced all the speakers and added amplifiers to obtain a sound that I prefer.

I will also do a few other modifications when I deem them necessary after thorough research.

Sorry about the long post but the point is "It's YOUR vehicle" and do whatever you want to do to it and listen to other people's advice and suggestions and then evaluate those ideas and act on only the ones you prefer or come up with yourself.

And you wasted even MORE $$$ by getting an accord 4 banger, which I'm sure is an automatic, because someone of your intelligence level couldn't possibly know how to owrk a maunal transmition.

And speaking of 4 banger (ouch), what are you doing writing messages on this forum for anyways. Your dumb as we all know, now you cant read? This is V6PERFORMANCE.NET.

They're all laughing at you!!! Sucker!

I have a 6th gen V6 and Im running at about 6 psi of boost. I didnt want to get the 3" but when I felt the results after it was installed I didnt want to go back to a smaller diameter.

What is wrong with him posting on this forum? It is open to everyone. Just because he has a 4 banger and not a V6 does not mean he cant post up questions or ideas. If you dont have anything constructive to say why post anything at all? If he wants to change the way his car looks more power to him.

Well you showed your intelligence level and it's obviously lower than a snake's belly on the ground.

I find it hard to believe that this site would allow jerks like you to run other people into the ground, people like you who think it makes them look good to slam others are just insecure with their own well-being.

I suggest you take a look in the mirror and you will discover who the dummy is.

you know what bro, this kind of attitude isn't going to be tolerated on our site! This is going to be a warning to you and if I see any more condescending posts like these, you will be banned.

If you want to give your opinion, you can give it without calling people dumb or other petty CRAP like that.

If you haven't noticed, V6P welcomes all people regardless of what car they drive!

Thanks for letting me use following link once more.
http://www.v6performance.net/forums/report.php?s=&postid=382845

btw, yes I know how to handle MT (had '99 lude 5spd before - was complete stock though). I may not be a good driver, but I know I am at least an average driver.

Thanks Dr. Phil, I'll make sure I am a GOOD boy from now on...

And lower than a snakes belly on the ground?? What on earth are you smoking? Your input is not needed, so why don't you go back to your classroom and wait for the schoolbus while your punk ass gets robbed for your spare change...
