Six Cylinder Economy Mode

I have a 2016 Touring Accord.
I'm wondering about economy mode and variable cylinder management. Does VCM exist only when in this mode?

Touring comes with V6?

No. VCM is always active.

I wish you could shut it off. Then again if you stand on it it goes off
BTW the auto is faster than the stick.
Trust me you wont want more unless you have had a 500 or 600 horsepower car as the tourings close to 300 ponies are plenty.

You can turn of VCM with Ktuner or Flashpro. And I'm not sure what your talking about the auto being faster. Sure it may shift gears faster than a human hand, but it's not going to put down as much power to the ground due to parasitic lose.

FYI, 6MT does not come with VCM so we don't have to worry about that to begin with.

That and they are usually 60+ pounds heavier than the manual transmission version.

You might also want to check out VCM Muzzler as well as a more cost effective alternate to a flash. I'm just not sure if the VCM Muzzler will completely rid the Accord of all VCM vibration, or just reduce the vibration considerably.

VCM can either be disabled by VCMuzzler/VCMTuner, which is cheaper but less "proper", or a KTuner tune, which is more expensive but more stable. Personally, I think you should only go with the KTuner if you are going to do other tunes anyways.

I find it a little strange when I looked up and found out that, according to Car and Driver, 6-6 is 0.2 seconds slower than V6 AT in 0-60 time. Usually, MT Accords have more aggressive gear ratios, and like you said, they are more power efficient and lighter.

That said, with some more performance cars like modern muscles, ATs are indeed faster than MTs. Take Dodge Challengers, for example, the 8AT version has much more aggressive gearing than the 6MT version. The first gear ratio on the 8AT of 392 SRT is about 4.7, while the first gear ratio on the 6MT is about 2.9. I would still grab a MT if I have to choose, though.
