^Thanks man.

And also, the regular Accord's come with Firewall braces from the factory. So those two screws on each strut tower are always being used regardless.

What the 6spd bar does is replace both firewall braces with a bar that connects the two braces to one another.

I know all of us 7th geners know this, but I just wanted Tiger Tuning to know what's up.

I see, thanks for the clarification. I've seen the sedan accord firewall braces in person. We will have to see if installing this brace requires removal of the stock brace!

Definitely interested as well! In for pics of the installation. BTW, does this apply to both the 7th gen sedans and coupes???? (I apologize for the noob question, just wondering if the chassis are the same....)

Also interested if this affects the TL/TL-S rear sway bar ... patiently awaiting pics

From my research, it looks like the two are the same chassis! However, little things like exhaust and component placement in the engine compartment can affect the fitment of the parts! We will find out after test fitments!

UPDATE 9/27/2010: Hey Everyone, the test kit is ready however they are still fulfilling the rest of our order! The national holiday is October 1st through 7th. KMR has confirmed that these will be sent on the 8th or possibly sooner! We're expecting these mid October! We'll keep you updated!

When all the pieces are shipped, will you please have a document stating how much all the bolts are to be properly torqued down so there won't be any confusion and no unnecessary thread making just for bolt torque questions.

kthanksbye.

I've read some threads on other forums that have installed chassis bracing (more than 1 section of bracing). The owners stated they did feel a difference in the handling.


I wonder if chassis bracing for the 7th gen would be just as beneficial..and of course for my 6th gen?

So what ever happened with this? PM me if this is going to become legit! I would buy 2,3,4,5,6 IF I get 20% off. Also could you ensure fitment on aftermarket exhausts and jpipes? I have magnaflow catback 16686 and richies v3 jpipe. If you could ensure fitment on my setup I would take all 5 of the bars. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you. If the group buy doesnt happen I will still purchase all the bars I listed if you will do the 20% off. PM me please.

Right. I wanna get 24's without rolling my fenders. Haha, I'm just playing Jason but for real I would really like to know all the specs and the guy wont message me back. I'm not so interested that I will wait around forever without even a PM.

I understand everyone getting antsy, but he said he was going to get the kit in around mid October.

Give them a week or two more, then start complaining lol.

Yeah. I am down for 2,3,4,5,6 (obviously depending on specs ie clearance). Hell if he actually messages me I will take 1 too if he can work on price with me (Its too high for sure). Everything else is legit.

I see I'm not the only one about to blow their disposable income on something else. I can wait about another week. I would like to be track ready by November 30th.
