no. It was designed for top end power as in 8000RPM+. Considering the Accord tops out under 7000rpms, youd be throwin your dinero away. TSX IM is your best bet since its designed to make power lower in the RPM range.

the accord SULEV K24 is pointless to modify unless you swap the head out, swap the crank out, and upgrade the pistons and rods

why do you have to swap the crank? It uses the same TSX crank. Just swap out the piston and k20 or tsx head + hondata set you back 4k. lol

Its not a race car man. but tsx im and pulley does make the car a little bit happier.

380 to the wheels? You aren't gonna even be remotely close without boost or nitrous. With the mods mentioned (TSX IM/Crank/K20a2 head) and even adding the TSX 6MT, regular bolt ons and a tune you'd be looking at around 220-230whp I'd bet. Boost it..then 380 is more approachable.

He's NOT trying to get anything close to 380 though. Just a few little things.

cuz I looked it up on k20a. you dont have to swap crank. Its not 100% since the tsx is better balance depedning on what year you looking at, but still since crank for the same displacement. Different piston to change the compression ratio. And way beefer rods.

I research it for 6 months before I wanted to do headswap getting all the detail downs. Then I got hit by a semi and got a v6 6mt easy 200whp stock. lol

here a link

nothin wrong with the guy wantin a little more pep. Im sure an intake on that thing will make noticeable improvements. I know it made a damn big difference on mine. Of course mines not SULEV but still. An intake would be my recommendation. Does the SULEV motor use an aluminum intake manifold? If so, why not a TSX IM as well ?

If you take a look at Honda's part numbers for the CRV, ACCORD, element all use the same crank and have the same part number which are cast crankshafts.

If you take a look at the 04-05 and 06-08(different connecting rods and crank for higher compression) TSX K24a2 part number for the crankshaft, its a couple off on the part number.

I've seen both with my own eyes. I don't think we need to prove something to you.. if you want to believe your forum people at the other forums, go ahead if that's your method of research.

Wow, talk about internet feelings getting hurt. lol. I just wanted a link to something because I enjoy reading up on new things concerning our cars.
I still dont see how you derive that theyre cast simply because they use the same cranks. Last I checked , all Honda cranks were forged but hey, it may have changed.
