They make a lil electric supercharger, I'd stay away from turbo and look into superchargers

Trust me man, you DO NOT want an "electric turbo or supercharger" Those things are garbage!! I had an Accord with a electric installed by the previous owner and it was nothing but problems. Check out TurboNetics, I'm sure they have something for a v6! If you want more power, you're gonna have to port and polish it and all that good stuff, it'll give you a noticable amount of HP!Good Luck!

Really the electric crap is crap.Why inst supercharger good?Ok there isnt a turbo kit out there for it. I suggest looking for a forum of your model. You need custom manifolds and etc. i suggest easy way would be getting a ZEX system 55-75 jet, colder spark pulgs intake and exhaust and make sure you run 91-93 octance when spary

There aren't any bolt on turbocharger kits for any of the V6 Accords (yet). Currently the only clean & simple route available for forced induction is the CT-Engineering (formerly COMPTECH USA) supercharger...see link below. Our family owns an '00 V6 Accord that I've added performance upgrades to. Frankly, I wouldn't add the supercharger unless you first upgraded your transmission. The problem 6th Generation Accords have is with transmisson failures...there's been a class action lawsuit with a resolution that affects '02 V6 Accords. Roughly from 3 - 8% of the transmissions fail. Consequently, adding substantial power is flirting with disaster. However, if you're persistent (and willing to spend some serious bucks), then it would be wise to do a 'Dr. Evil' transmission rebuild that makes it mostly bullet proof to the problems Honda's experienced with their stock versions. And at minimun, I'd install an offboard tranny cooler. IMO, there are better ways to get more power & avoid hammering your transmission:- add AEM, V2 CAI ~ 9 hp- add catback exhaust (Greddy Evo2 or similar) ~ 6-7 hp- add CT-Engineering stainless steel headers ~ 13-15 hp- add J32A2 ('02-'03 TL Type S) cams...they fit the J30A1 engine of the '02 Accord & are a slick performance upgrade ~ 10 hp- add UR underdrive pullies ~ 3 hp- add OUTLAW ENGINEERING, thermoblock throttlebody & intake (heat isolation) spacers ~ 5 hp- add Denso Iridium IK16 plugs ~ 1-2 hp- add UNICHIP, ECM perforamance chip ~ 10 hp- add SUN AUTOMOTIVE, hyper ground kit ~ 3-5 hpInternal rebuild of pistons, porting of intake/exhaust, lighter flywheel, relieving throttle body bore, high performance valves, guides, springs, KMS Engineering open deck block guard, etc., can all be added/performed, but will cost a chunk of change...best to pick the most reasonable mods above first (e.g., intake/headers/exhaust).
