just a heads up, the 7gen oem 6MT bar is identical to the oem strut bar found on the 01-03 CL-S and 01-03 TL-S cars.

plus the acura bars are much cheaper than the 6mt accord bar.

i think you can a new bar from oemacuraparts for like $58

i checked the honda website and a new 7 gen 6mt accord bar is around $87

that's very good to know. Thanks so much. Does this actually make a difference or am I better off with Neuspeed? I'm keeping my car as much stock as possible this time around and would like to stay with OEM parts.

IMHO the CL-S/TL-S bar does make a difference. You can feel a greater difference if you have suspension work done like springs/shocks, rear sway bar,etc. But even on a stock car you can feel the steering feel tighter and if you fast turn, you can feel the chassis stay a little more composed.

I personally think its a great mod, and for $58 you can't go wrong.

If you want to mod your car, and keep a stock like appearence under the hood, the cl-s/tl-s bars are a good choice. If you want to have some bling, neuspeed or comptech.

I do notice that the Accord 6MT bar has extra screw holes on the left and right sides for supporting some engine components/fixtures. The CL/TL-S one doesn't have that. Am I correct?

the cl-s bar has the extra hole for the fuse box. I think that's all that are needed. I am not sure what needs to be fastened on the right ?

just checked acura parts ..

is this the right strut bar needed for a 05 accord coupe and do I need the bolts or anything else?

Did anyone tried to install on Accord V6 with one of the CL-S/TL-S (01-03) strut bar? Did it fit?

Just get a used Neuspeed bar or somethign along those lines, the CLS bar is very "dinky" like a die cast metal toy car. Neuspeed strut bar felt way better.
