whats the difference

hey guys..

i need some facts from you plzz.

the thing is that i have heard if i install aem v2 intake and borla exhaust i would not feel the difference as already both stock on the accord v6 4 doors are very fine. so please if you have a v6 4 doors accord do inform me on on the difference you feel, and arent there anything else for the 7th generation, its been a while and i am searching and didnt find anything else to improve the performance of the car.

the thing is that i am going to order it as soon as i read your opinions. and if possible a detailed information would be very great.

sorry for adding a new thread but i had to because all the information on other threads are for the 6 speed 2 doors accord.

i am very thankful to you guys.

Mr Malik

That's not true.. I don't know about sedans, but there is some1 here (03lxv6guy) or something like tht, all he has is an intake and he runs 14.5 in the qt mile.. so if u do get an intake and borla that should help ur performance a bit.. ur increasing airflow which is always good

plus i have heard about Apexi V-AFC II VTEC Air Flow Converter which many ppl recommend it, no matter where i read about this thing on the net i dont get enough information, can someone direct me or post details on how exactly does it affect my performance and how it would help improve overall airflow.
basicly i dont know what exactly does and what the gains are.

please forgive me for asking so many questions and bothering you guys.

Cams, manifolds, and internal engine work (increasing displacement) are what "increase" air flow. intakes, exhaust, and bolt-on's for the most part are "freeing up" power by decreasing pumping losses.

But aren't u alowing air to flow easier by getting wider exahust pipes?

What he means is that intake,exhaust don't really increase airflow, they just allow the engine to work more efficiently by unrestricting the restrictive areas. For example, you could have a subway tunnel for an intake, but it wouldnt increase airflow by much if the engine can't take it all in. Or you could have a big ass turbo blowing air into your engine, but if your exhaust is the size of a straw, it's not gonna help much. Generally, the engine is restricted by the intake and exhaust, and upgrading them just allow the engine to perform closer to it's full potential. But the parts that are really doing all the work are the engine componenets.

And Mr. Malik, I know that the Intake will work on both the Sedan and the Coupe, but I'm not sure about the exhaust. I believe that they are the same also. But don't take my word for it.

Yah I know.. so your just allowing the air to flow more freely by allowing "the engine to work more efficiently by unrestricting the restrictive areas"

I'm not sure but I dont think they make Borla for the Sedan. I got the Borla and it sounds really nice man, its real deep, and it isnt loud at all, i kinda want mine to be just a little louder. If anything, Greddy might be the loudest exhaust for the 7thGen. But the sound you get from the intake....its beautiful. Man I drove without the radio for about a week just so i could listen to how sweet my car sounded.

I'm looking at getting the V2, and maybe the Borla for my Coupe. I heard that Borla was louder then Greddy?

Also, would I notice much difference between a K&N drop in filter vs. the V2? I was also thinking about taking out the resonator and putting in a k&n? Any comments?

What would I get with the K&N Filter? HP gains? Kinda new to this perf stuff

Plus what about warranty? Does any of these mods kill my 5 year warranty? I want to get new rims and drop, but I hear that its not a good thing?

Thanks:O)

The AFC lets you adjust the air/fuel ratio in your car to maximize the air flow and performance of your car. Apexi V-AFC is an add-on of a adjusting the fuel with the v-tec engagment time by RPM.

If you dont know how to use it, i live in bahrain and you can call me 39896442 and we can work it out. My cousin has been using it for year in his 1.8 vtec turbocharged civic. You can get it from "hot wheels" in riffa. They are expensive with there prices but i can get you an offer.
