It should. AEM's website says no. All intakes are the same. Buy any intake and get a K&N filter. Cold air and short ram. It's all the same. I don't car what people tell you. There wrong if they say otherwise.

It depends on what year V6 Accord you're talking about. Though both engines share the same block & displacement, it doesn't mean they share the same intake components. Here's the potential problem you'll encounter...The Acura you mentioned has a motor Honda describes as the J30A1. This same motor is found on the Gen6 (V6) Accords (from '98 - '02). There 'shouldn't' be any problem swapping intake parts between these two cars. However, the newer, Gen7 (V6) Accords (from '03 - '07) featured the Honda J30A2 & newer engine designations. Among other enhancements, Honda opened up the intake flow in order to go from the 200 HP of the Gen 6 to the 240 & 244 HP of the Gen 7 versions. I'm pretty certain that they increased the diameter of the throttlebody along with the intake piping. This means if you're talking about compatability between a 3.0L TL to an '03 - '07 Accord, you probably WON'T be able to swap CAI pipes. And this makes sense. If you shop for the major brands such as AEM or INJEN online, you'll notice they have different parts numbers between the '98 - '02 & the '03 - '07 V6 Accords...because of differences in pipe diameters & possibly due to different bend angles/legnth, etc. IMO, I'd check more carefully first & save yourself the mistake of buying something that won't fit.
