I should've posted this A LONG time ago (June 2009 to be exact) but here is the build/mod thread for my 2009 CBP Acoord V6 Coupe 6MT.

I love the car and its got serious balls. Within the 1st week I added a system, 6000K Hids, and 35% tint. A month or two later I added an ATLP Jpipe, Rv6 3rd Cat Delete, and an Injen CAI. Just the other day I ordered some Tein S-Tech Springs and Ichiba Wheels spacers. In the works are custom precat delete's(Richie's don't fit, Honda changed the head flange on the newer models), a custom 2.5" magnaflow quad tip ultra quiet exhaust (for cruising), and custom 2.75" single outlet exhaust (for tracking), and hopefully a few other goodies I haven't decided on yet. I'm also working on making clear reflectors for the 8th gen Coupe.

I need to put up some dyno sheets from when I dynoed with these current mods but I haven't been to the shop I dynoed at in a while. I should have them soon though. For those who don't know I dynoed 260whp & 240wtq with these mods (Jpipe, CAI, 3rd cat delete). Thats up from the stock 240whp & 220wtq. The gains are higher lower in the rpm band but I don't have the sheet in front of me to say exactly how much.

I also scooped up some 18" aspec wheels but will be getting them powdercoated for the summer. Here are a few starter pics. Once the blizzard clears out this weekend here in DC I should have more.



ATLP J-pipe & 3rd Cat delete

ATLP J-pipe installed

OEM Jpipe and 3rd Cat. Very restrictive

Your first pic is the BEST angle for our cars IMO and the second pic is the worst.

I would ahve to agree sir. Our cars are so sexy though, that the worst angle still looks good. LOL
good job.

Thanks guys I'll post a pic of the aspec wheels tonight or tomorrow.

Yes, I felt more TQ than HP. The general consensus from the 3rd gen TL guys is that the precat deletes add lots of HP & minimal TQ while the Jpipe adds lots of TQ with minimal HP gains.

The dyno and the buttdyno both felt the difference.

Definitely agree with the TL guys about feeling more torque with the J-Pipe. It's more of what headers would do to a muscle car. Typically opens up more torque in the low end.

HP for the pre-cat delete's is most likely attributed to the smoother flow?

Is it possible to get some sound clips of your car under load and free rev? How is the gas mileage post mods?

+5 sound clip or ban.:thumbsup:
I guess the choir has spoken. If the snow doesnt start here too early tonight, I'll get some sound clips when I get off.

As for gas mileage I noticed maybe a +2-3mpg difference hwy & city with the mods since the engine is running more efficient with the better exhaust flow. Now when I'm getting on the pedal gas mileage is pretty bad LOL. I also noticed better gas mileage when using 93 octane compared to 87. Engine runs quieter too. I went from getting 17mpg city & like 24mpg hwy to getting 19mpg city & 27-30hwy depending on if I'm cruising at 70mph or 80mph.
