  1. The 8th Generation
    Hello, i recently purchased a '09 honda accord ex-l 2.4 vtec DOHC. Im looking to squeeze some horses out of her. Where should i star? Air intake, exhaust manifold, cat, muffler, down pipe?. Im looking for something cheap and not mad aggressive sounding. What or model/makes are compatible?
  2. The Early Generations
    So I’m looking to upgrade my current engine in my 95 Honda Accord. It’s currently got a 2.2l sohc f22b engine and im not too sure one where to start. I’m looking for a vtec and somewhere around the h series or b series. I’m not too interesting in doing too much fabrication so I was wondering if...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and I have a question thats driving me crazy. I recently bought a VTEC spool assembly for my 2003 2.4L Honda Accord EX iVTEC - part# 15810-RAA-A03 but the new part is slightly different than the old part: - The new part has an oil pressure switch while the old part has a...

    The Accord in Canada comes with this cool VTEC TURBO sticker on the back window. I believe it’s the same part number for the new Civic Type R. I saw it in a Canadian video review. If you order from Honda Canada it’s over $80, but I found someone selling them on eBay for $25. Canada part...

    Hey Guys! I own a 2013 Accord Coupe 4 Cylinder 6 Speed. I was planning on muffler delete but then thought it was gonna be stupid so I backed off. It was gonna cost me $400 because I wanted a custom axleback made. Is that a normal price? The other question is that I want to buy the aFe Power...

    This is really just for fun, but haven't you always wanted to know when your VTEC has kicked on while you are driving around? I bet most people would be surprised to learn that the VTEC engages very often.. In fact, I would say the VTEC engages on almost every acceleration for the typical...
  8. The 7th Generation
    I have always heard different stories of when the VTEC engages to the secondary cam profile for improved performance at higher engine speeds/load. Some people say you can feel it when it kicks in (I can't say I have), others say it is at 3000RPM, etc. Now that I have a scan tool that reads...

    Hi everyone, Car: 2000 Accord LX 2.3 MT Issue 1: Oil Leak Vtec Solenoid (yes, Im 100% sure). Issue 2: I'm too lazy. I mostly drive my car very economically and don't ever rev it past 3000 rpm. So my question is, if I don't use Vtec (by not revving high), does the engine oil still flow...
  10. Performance
    So with the new update from KTuner software we are allowed to adjust throttle mapping. I changed all of my settings in throttle mapping and it made the car literally about 5 times better! Driveability is WAYYYY better and the throttle input is just incredible. My 3rd gear feels like 2nd and 4th...

    Hi, Quick question. I purchased just the vtec solenoid itself (what is pictured, ebay part on left) to fix a very intermittent P1259 vtec malfunction error. Anyway the part of ebay was 30 bucks and is suppose to work with any 5th gen and 6th gen accord from 1994-02 4cyl. Just to note a...

    when i open or close my car with my key fob i have to be standing pretty close to the car. once i get maybe 30-40 feet away i can't open or close the car because the signal sucks. My friend's have wrxs and 9th gen accords and they can open their cars from a block away. Any ways to fix this or...

    When i start my car in the morning on a cold start it makes a grinding noise and after maybe 5 minutes of letting it warm up or so id drive it and when i would accelerate out of a turn (no im not romping it lol, maybe 10-25% throttle) it makes a grinding sound. Anyone else have this problem, ive...

I have been having issues with the PO112 Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor Low Input Circuit. I have replaced the IAT but I am still getting the same code. Im trying to...
  15. Problems & Solutions
    I'm currently experiencing some motor problems with my '02 Accord, 3.0 L VTEC, just turned 160,009 on my last drive. Story: I knew my right front motor mount was going bad, and it ended up failing under a jolt of acceleration. A few seconds/minutes after it happened (I was still driving...

    Driver Back Seat Cover Clip Hey guys I'm having some problems putting the driver seat back cover on. The reason I removed it was because the plastic gear in the lumbar support motor broke. I removed the lumbar support motor and cables but the clips will just not clip on. I tried Chinese ebay...

    Hey everyone I'm new here but not to this site, I have a 2001 Honda Accord V6 coupe. Unfortunately my Accord has the CEL P1259 and I researched the issue and my accord is not low on oil, just did oil change in case of a bad filter after the CEL came on. I need some help with finding where the...

    I'm hearing a buzzing/rattling noise in the higher RPM range.. It seems to start around 4k and really gets pronounced once VTEC kicks in and is down right loud to me around 6k-6500... It seems to come from the front passenger area.. sounds like metal... Maybe a heat shield.. But I would think I...
  20. The 8th Generation
    Okay so I have a 2008 EX-L 3.5 V6 Automatic transmission, i hear that the vtec in the automatic transmissions do not have a separate cam profile to switch over to above 4500 rpm so the engine operates more like a toyota vvt engine. However, the manual transmission accords come with a real vtec...
