you could put a cold air intake on it , a racer pipe and blow hundreds of dollars and still have a 91 honda that dont go . JUST DRIVE IT , save your money to put towards your future !

well if the car is in fairly good condition theres very little you could do to make it look nice.Drop the car as in new suspension, dropping the car gives you better handling and a better look.and go with 16 in rims.

Leave it alone man. A Honda Accord will never be fast or cool.It's is simply reliable low maintenance transportation. Rather than tarting up your Accord and killing it's resale value and reliability with poorly made aftermarket parts just save up your money for a few years or however long it takes and buy a car that was meant for this sort of thing(S2000, NSX, Corvette,350Z, Mustang). This may not be what you want to hear but you'll be glad in the end if you take my advice.P.S. if you still feel the urge to mess with your car I wouldn't go further than a cold air intake or else you will start to affect your cars reliability. Even an exhaust system will mess your car up by taking away the backpressure needed for smooth and proper running.

Well a cold air intake system can help. Also along with a stainless steel DC header. With the whole Greddy Exhaust pipes and muffler you looking to be really fast. You can even keep up with GSR's with all of this. If your really into it then I suggest you swap in a H22A engine and you be at 200HP's.Hope that helps...........

Wow, amazing how people sip the haterade around here. Well despite all the people that say 'it'll never be fast its a honda' (which i read as blah blah blah i'm a pushrod red neck moron), there are many honda accords that are quite fast and see regular track duty. The best thing for performance for you would be to search out an OBD I (or On Board Diagnostics 1) H22A engine, trans and ecu swap. The H22A has alot more horsepower and (the most important thing) a heap load more torque then the F22 could ever hope to offer. The H and F series motors of honda share an incredible amount of parts, so the actual install of the engine isn't too nightmarish (unless converting it from Auto to Manual, then you need the pedal and master cylinder assemblys from a stick accord). While having the motor out of the car, theres a few things that I see as second nature while you are doing an engine swap, either a cold air or a short ram intake system, a hi flow exhaust manifold (or header) and some sort of high flow exhaust. Personally, while the engine is out, I would make sure the compression is allright, see if there is any sensors or gaskets that need replacing and square them away. I had a 94 accord with an H22 swap that I took to High Performance Driving Events, needless to say there were a few miatas and mustang owners that were scratching their chins at the end of the day. Just remember, all that horsepower is worthless unless your suspension is up to snuff to handle the extra power and entry speeds into corners. I'd recommend doing a full polyurethane bushing installation ( Prothane or Energy Suspension can help you with this ), sway bars and some sort of stiffer damper and spring combo. And if you have any aftermarket audio amplifiers or subwoofer boxes, i'd either try to downsize them or completely remove them, every pound added is an extra pound your engine and trans has to pull along.
