6mt

  1. Wheels, Suspension & Brakes
    Hi, I have a 2015 Accord 6mt I recently purchased. It's the 4 cylinder Touring model. I'm looking to lower it, and just wanted to know some things. -What is the suggested spring rate for the front and rears? -Is there any specific brand of coilovers people with this vehicle tend to gravitate...

    I mainly just have 2 questions, first question I have is, "do I need to do any serious piping for the J35Z3 block to fit a turbo?" And my second question is, "where would the turbo fit?" If someone can help me out with the info on that with maybe some pictures, that would be most appreciated...

    Hi guys! Quick question(s) It's coming time to do my timing belt and water pump as I'm at 108k Miles in my 08 V6 6MT. My questions are: 1. What parts do I need (belt, water pump, tensioner, bolts, gaskets)? 2. Would the kit be the same for the 5 Speed Auto as the 6 Speed Manual? 3. Where can...

    I bought a 2008 6-6 last fall and on the first night of owning it, 2nd gear popped out a couple times. I figured maybe that I wasn’t pushing the clutch all the way in and wasn’t pushing it all the way into gear. It did it again the next day, so I called the dealership I bought it from and they...

    I am brand new to this thread, and still relatively new to owning a Honda. I have absolutely loved cars ever since I was a kid, so when my 2018 Sport 2.0t 6MT was purchased last April, I was ecstatic, and I'm absolutely in love with it. My previous car was a 2012 Camry which was also my first...

    Hi all, Turns out my clutch is slipping after only 3 years since being replaced with an OEM Luk clutch. Its bad enough that it will slip in every gear, no more wheel chirp. I was curious if any of you 6-6 guys had any experience with performance clutch/flywheel combos? I've heard good things...

    Hi Guys, Last weekend i got my Katzkin Cardinal Red Leather Seats installed on my sport. i'm sure many have thought about changing our seats, but i've only found one thread with pics of it installed...

    There is another thread related to manual transmission issues but I wanted to start this one related specifically to issues going into 3rd gear. Also, the 2.0T cars have a different transmission than the 1.5T cars, so I'm further restricting this to the 2.0T/6MT combination only. Since I first...

    As the title states, I believe that I am experiencing some slight transmission issues. I bought my car completely stock back in April 2017 with 32k miles and the transmission had some 2nd gear issues upshifting from 1st at higher RPM's (4k+) and downshifting from 3rd at any RPM. Yes, I do rev...

    Hey forum, I was hoping to get some insight into how to deal with a problem that's been developing recently. I've got an 07 accord V6 with 123k, basic maintenance (oil changes) has been kept on top of. For the last month or so during regular driving, the CEL would flash, mostly at stop lights...

    Title says it all, but heres the back story: Growing up we had snowmobiles, and a double-wide, heavy trailer. Total weight was 2200lbs, with gas, gear, Kids, Beer, More Beer, and tools. We towed it with a 1992 V6 Camry, and then a 1998 V6 Honda Accord, but around 190-200hp. Both cars lived...

    Hello all! I am a proud owner of a 2013 Accord Sport 6 Speed and wanted to open a discussion on this manual transmission. I do know this has been discussed in the past as being a near perfect manual but wanted to look at this from a different perspective. How does the factory "throw" in the...

    I've been checking the local dealers' inventories for months but they never have an Accord V6 6MT in stock. That means I can't test drive one, and I'm not gonna pay $30K for a car I've not driven. (I've watched all the reviews on YouTube, but it's just not the same.) From reading other forums...

    I just had my car hit in the quarter panel starting from the edge of the door where it opens to about 4 feet back. The grooves in the door are also ruined. My insurance company gave me 1500$ estimate to fix it but i think the damage is too bad to just pull it out. If anyone has a better idea or...

    Hello all, :wave: sorry for my first post being a slew of Q's. But I'm desperate for answers before Monday rolls around. I recently ordered this after *NOT* reading a thread thoroughly enough to know it doesn't fit right. After attempting an installation, it seems as if the bolts on the...

    I wanted to share my experience with the forum. I upgraded form my 2008 EX-L 6man, to the 2011 EX-L 6man. As I have read in countless threads, I had 3rd gear issues in the 2008. After pleading with the local dealer (in Ohio), I took it back to my original dealer (in NY). They took it for a drive...

    The 3rd gear "notchy" shift finally inspired (annoyed? :censored:) me to swap out the manual transmission fluid in my 6MT. I've upgraded to GM's friction modified synchromesh fluid (semi-synthetic). Time will tell, but I didn't feel any notchy shifts in today's post fluid change drives. It's...
