Please DO NOT Post In The General Section

From this point on until otherwise briefed, posting in the general section of Performance Tech is prohibited. The only thing to remain here will be the stickies. We would just delete this section, but that would cause unintended results.

The majority of the threads created can appropriately be placed in one of the Performance Tech sub-forums or Technical; and the posting of them here is detrimental to the activity of said forums. If you have any questions about where you need to place your thread PM me or one of the other mods.

For the most part you all have caught on without this post, but there have been a few habitual offenders that forced me to say this.

Everyone will get a couple of warnings from here on out, after that I just start deleting threads.

Again if you have any questions, PM me or one of the other mods.

    HP advice for a newbie

    What's up y'all. I bought an '04 Accord 4-door EX not too long ago as my daily driver. Flame me if you want, but I also have a pretty badass Mustang for weekend fun. I'm looking to make my Accord move a little better. It already seems pretty peppy to me, but more power is always a plus. I saw a magazine that says it does a 15.1 1/4 mile. What can I do to get this deep into the 14s or 13s if I'm lucky. I'm not looking at adding NOS or anything. Just simple bolt-ons. Is this possible? Thanks.
    '04 Accord EX.

    First of all welcome to the Accord community. Low to mid 14's are feasable...13's is stretching it a bit far w/o some kind of forced induction or serious work.

      simple bolt ons to get into the 14s or 13s, without nos... i don't think so. but then again, i own a '93 accord, so maybe i'm completely out of the loop.

      you're welcome to stay around here, but you might be better served at accord tuner's 7th gen forum:

      or maybe honda society's 7th gen forum:

        it slips my mind right now but do u have the V6 version? or Inline 4?...

        simple bolt ons will help alot.. moreso on the V6.. some headers(ha can say that now!) will add a good amount of grunt to the v6.. compliment that with a cai or short ram and a catback.. and ur looking pretty good.. now is this automatic?? or 5spd?

        if its the inline 4 theres alot u can do but im sure its still under warantte.. if ur on here then i assume u dont care too much about it

          Thanks for all of the advice. It's a V6 automatic. on the automatic part, but it's my daily driver. I used to have a '90 Accord 5-speed. That car was a pretty fun car. It's too bad someone rear-ended me totalling it. That car would have lasted forever. By far the most reliable car I've ever owned.

          By the way, thanks Uncle El. I'll also check out those sites. I'll probably hang around this site too because I'd also like to learn more about the older models, because I think they look damn sexy as daily drivers or whatever you use them for. I'm just looking to make my car move a little faster
          '04 Accord EX.


            ha yeah the V6 version will make more power just by freeing up whats already there..

            intake/headers/2.5"mandrel bent exhaust with a free flowing muffler..= should keep u happy

            Praise The Lowered...
