Default Why do people choose to fix up a Honda civic for racing and not an accord if an accord is faster?

The Accord is substantially heavier, so the same go-fast parts will result in less improvement -- even assuming they fit.

Accords aren't faster... The Civic is lighter, more nimble, and has more aftermarket support... The Accord is the luxury/family version of the Civic more or less...

Along with the accord weighing more, Some of them also have 6cylinder engines. Nothing wrong with that, but it's much easier to work on and tune smaller engines; Not to mention their cheaper too, mods and repairs. I drive an accord myself and it is fairly quick with the mods I have, but if I had a civic it'd probably be much faster.
