Default Moding a Honda Accord?

I have a 2006 honda accord and slowly putting money into it. I'm almost done with the sound system and now looking to increase performance. I will eventually get a turbocharger but that wont be for a year because they are around 2 thousand. So what I'm asking for is a list of things I can do that will cost no more than a couple hundred each but will increase the cars performance. And I don't need a body kit.

You should not modify your accord.

I say this based on two things- First, you didn't mention which engine you have in the car which indicates that you don't understand engine modification enough to do it. Second, you mentioned a body kit which has nothing to do with performance.

If I were going to modify a 2006 Accord (I'll assume 4-cyl EX trim), I'd start by selling the car for the 15 grand or so that you can get, buying a beater civic to drive to and from work for four grand, spend 5 grand on a good mid-90s Toyota MR2 and spend 4 grand modifying the everloving snot out of it so that I had a car that was made to get 30+mpg that I can drive to the parts store and a car that was made to be fast and fun to drive. And I'd have an extra two grand in my pocket, give or take.

basic bolt ons. your accord a v6 or inline4? the v6 will gain x2 more in power than a 4. cold air intake,exhaust, pulleys should come somewhere in the neighborhood at 500 to 700+, for a measy gain of maybe 10 to 15 horsepower.

what are you laying down stock? go twin turbo for a serious ass kicking street machine.

-Cold air intake

-High flow catalytic converter

Don't do the header/downpipe now if you're getting a turbo

-Cat back exhaust

-Ignition coils, plugs, wires, module

-Slotted brake rotors (NOT drilled)

-Hawk brake pads

-Racing seats

-Steering wheel (requires removal of air bag)

-Aluminum floor mats


-Shift knob


-Gauge pods

-Grounding kit

-Strut tower brace

-Performance springs, make sure to get aftermarket shocks at the same time

-Low drag mirrors

-4 point cage

And anything beyond that you should be preparing your engine and fuel system for the turbo kit.

By the way...

"you mentioned a body kit which has nothing to do with performance"

He mentioned he doesn't want one, and yes they can increase performance if you get a good one. Ever heard of APR? Dumbass.

And the guy who said you only get 10-15hp with cold air, pullies, and exhaust isn't too close either
