OK i think i need an intervention here, im totally losing interest in my accord. My friend is getting the new atima 3.5 coupe after he heard me say i loved it, naturally HUGE copy cat but w/e. I know that it is faster than the accord so now i am completely turned off the accord as if right now. I have an intake, jpipe, and tl sways

any ideas for mods to try and set me back on track, ive even went as far as to try and get my brother to take the accord so i can get a new car . . . i need help!!

LSD? Coilovers? whats gonna do it here?! anyone else have this happen from time to time?

It happens, but my god you have an 06 6spd, so much potential! Everyone is different, but personally pretty much ever month or every other month I'll do a new mod to freshen my 6spd up. Last mod was my Pro Kit springs until I just put in my DEPOs with HIDs. I didn't think the headlights would make me fall back in love with my Accord but it totally did. If I were you I'd set a plan for the next 6 months for three or four really impactful mods. Thinking back the exhaust, the J-pipe/test-pipe, the wheels and tires, springs... they all made me appreciate my car more and more.

I was in the same boat, I was considering trading in for a Used G35 or New G37 a couple weeks ago, but then I really thought about it, and realized that I could spend the money I would have put into a new ride and do some more mods to my current ride. SO I just purchased Richie's j-pipe, and have a whole bunch more mods to do. Hell I'm even getting the car repainted another color so it looks like i'm getting a new car anyway.

i was in the same boat a few weeks ago. I had a tire blow out and but some new, agressive, wider tires on and I fell in love with her again all over! Now she has a nice meaty stance instead of the stock pizza cutter tires. To all yall that have 6spds...i envy.

An Altima Coupe? Seriously? That's one of the most hideously ugly cars on the road, which is probably why they're sitting on lots going nowhere. I've seen 2 or maybe 3 of them since they came out which is pathetic. He's probably only buying it because he can get a crazy good deal on one. Nobody wants them because they're so ugly they make people want to vomit. Even the Pontiac Aztec looks nicer to me.

hey thanks for the input guys, yeah its a respectable amount faster i think. How do you do weight reductions and do the TL cams really help that much what RPMs does it change.... and im not doing an engine swap lol. how much would a TL LSD set me back and would a shop install it or can i, im pretty mechanically inclined

*Drivers being equal.

Whatever you do with the J30 he will own you from a dig, he will out tourqe you every time, now from a 40mph roll, you have a good chance.

The LSD will set you back about $800. The cams $300. The cams are lighter and will rev faster and the v-tec lift is wider than stock. Like everyone else, if you have the money to do it, swap the engine.

^Depending on how you buy the SC and tune it it can be the same or less to go SC, now putting a SC on top of a built engine...........
