Exclamation Quick, I'm dying...Help...

No not really, but if I have your attention, let me borrow another 2 minutes of your time. This is my first post on the website, just trying to get a couple quick answers. If you can help me out in any of these areas or point me in the direction of another thread let me know. Thanks. I recently got me a 2004 LX V-6 coupe (auto trans). I want to start doing some minor stuff to it. But since it is such a new car and not many companies have done much to it, I am relying on what others have done with their cars. Like I said, if you can answer any of these questions or reply with a link to another thread that would be awesome, if anything I just want to read up about my car so I can make some decisions about its future. With that being said...

What intake and exhaust systems is anyone running and or what would they recommend? I want to get both parts together and install at the same time. I don't know of any companies yet that make both parts and have done the research to show the gains. I know some intake are getting 10-15-almost 20.....but I don't know about exhaust, only about 10 I think, but with the right system that 1 company has come up with both parts would be better tuned with each other.....anyone have any ideas or experience? If you have done anything to your car that you would recommend or not recommend, what do you recommend? Catch my drift?

What other parts are producing power? The hyper ground wire system? Anyone upgrade their wire, spark plugs, ignition, injector or fuel delivery systems? I don't think there are headers yet. Nor cams, or pulley. The only other thing I am going to do relatively soon is get rims and some suspension modifications, I just need to figure out the best rims and tire combo. I want to retain mostly stock figures and calibration, but performance is my goal. Anyone recommend the ideal size and setup? It has 16s now, which I don't mind, I would go up to 17, maybe 18, but probably not 19. What do you think? What suspension upgrades will complement these other mods? I want springs, or coil overs, any possible braces, bars, bushings, ties, whatever, anything.

I guess I should just be patient, that is the curse of having the new car, you can't do much to it...ohh well, please take a second to reply if you can help me out, I'm sure many more are wondering the same thing. Thanks.

I hear that AEM has a pulley out for the 7th gen v6 coupes. Can anyone verify this?

Honda has OEM Factory performance Shocks/Springs now availble. (Way better than stock shocks!)

I just got them on my MT6 and, it is just one of the best items Honda has ever made for the Accord.

Peace

the immediate impact won't be noticed until at least a few months if not a year I think..

I emailed the guy and he said it is not a presale and is on AEM 2004 catalog... even tho it is true, it still puts me in doubt if he will take forever to ship it to you..

i mean.. if it is available.. wouldn't AEM have list on the web site as well?

The word from before is that you can not buy them separately.. but it shouldn't be hard to buy them as parts now because Honda gotta be anticipate people buying replacement parts..

I dunno about the AEM website, but I've bought from the guy before and he's pretty quick with shipping, so I'm not really worried about getting it in a timely fashion, just wondering if it really was for the 7th gen accord since this is the first i've heard of it, and I am constantly searching for ugrades.
