Looking at buying 08+ accord,few questions..

Been looking into the 08-10 Accord sedan V6s..(I dont like the 2011 look and the extra brake lights they added into the trunk)

Few questions.
is there any talk into having a supercharger or anything performance type on that level available? Read its impossible due to the VSM?

also are the V6 6speeds hard to find? do they come in sedans or coupes only?
Heard the i4's cannot be turbocharged due to the casting of the manifold into/onto the block or something?

keeping in mind i have a boosted 6th gen,so modding a car is something i cant help but do..But id like to know theres some aftermarket support before I spend 20,000+ on a car that cant have anything done do it...

thanks guys,and hope to hear some input and info!

before getting a lot of advices..you should always ask a professional since 20000 is not a small amount..do you research well. I suggest go in the market and check then execute things

i havent seen any boosted 8th gen v6 yet. however there was a turbo'd 4 cylinder 8th gen in another country. that barely yielded like a bit past 200whp. basically same power as a v6 STOCK. not worth it, but so much money and work put into a turbo.

v6 6speeds are a bit hard to find, and they only come in coupes for the 8th gens.

anyone know about the 2011 HFP's? did they tweak the engines or just do suspension and body work?

If you choose an 8th Gen I wouldn't bother with the 4cyl... yes 6 speeds are hard to find, but they're out there... I bought this one used. As far as mods... more are becoming available, but nothing about a good FI setup yet. So far it's all balls... with PCD's coming soon 270+ whp is pretty realistic... add an AEM FI/C and maybe more??

Do you realllllly want to buy another Honda for $20k+? Eventually you're going to want to move up to something nicer, why prolong that? Look into the German cars...Audi A4 (can come turbo, all-wheel drive, and manual transmission with plenty of aftermarket support), BMW 328i (rear-wheel drive, manual, and plenty of aftermarket support), etc. Modding a front-wheel drive for power isn't as productive as doing so to a rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive car, once you get away from the FWD cars you'll never go back in my opinion.

Yo, monty,

here is my oppinion,

get the 2011 se accord like my brother, he only paid $24,xxx everything included...

u said u don't like the tail light garnish, so get rid of it and get the inspired one, u can get it converted like under $500...

u want turbo/sc, but u said u tired of manual, so just get auto,

and then u should go with ksport bag suspension, and put on 20" and go vip style...

that'll look sick,

but if u still want turbo/sc, i heard the tsx sc would bolt on the i4 accord, since both use k24, but mods are a big need and i dunno how to tune it, cuz dunno bout the chip for it,

but if u want more info,

just go to my8thgen.com bunch of 8thgen accords are there... actually, 90% are 8thgen/8.5gen accord,

you'll get lots more info there...

hope this help,
tommy
