Just remove the entire exhaust system already if you are doing it this way. At the same time, you smell the heavy unfiltered exhaust fumes while driving also. You need to spend money going to an exhaust shop and make it a straight pipe because there is an exhaust resonator, so if don't have the budget then just cut the exhaust off already with a sawzall.

I don't get why people have no money and think this is 'getting them going for a while'. If you want to fix that light another cheap way, use an 90 degree O2 defouler adapter.
Yeah I have the adapter for the O2 sensor my cousin did a update I needed for my ECU na d was still there just went away yesterday. He did the update last week. So question the white fans I believe are they supposed to be spinning?

I sold my 2006 VP on Sunday. I had the Accord for 9 years and it served me well. I wanted a fun, fast daily and purchased a 2019 Kia Stinger GT2 AWD. The new car has so many features I didn't realize what I've been missing when it comes to technology and comfort.

A bit on the pudgy side, that is the 3.3 twin turbo version with all the bells and whistles.

I'll still frequent the forums here. The Accord was the longest I've ever owned a vehicle. I'll miss how reliable it was but I wanted to try something new.

Oh yeah, it is FAST! Does 0-60 in 4.7 seconds. The eight-speed automatic is so smooth when shifting too. I wanted some excitement for my daily and something that wasn't commonly seen on the roads. I see enough Mustang, Camaro, and Corvettes.

I still have a 2003 Toyota MR-2 Spyder for a fun, lightweight car to toss around so I don't mind the weight of the Stinger. Besides, I'm not tracking cars anyway. I like the acceleration (0-60 in 4.7 seconds despite the weight) and technology/comfort features of the Stinger.

Yup. I bought two keys off Amazon for $13. Ace Hardware charges $30 and $40 to cut and program it. Can't remember which costs how much.

If you do this you need to bring all of your keys to them because all of them have to be programmed at the same time.

Here's the key I bought.

i mean, weight has a penalty besides just at the track but if you're happy with it who cares what a bunch of internet dorks think tbh

The 7G Accord sedan is ~3200 lb. But rest assured, the 4000 lb Stinger GT is still faster in a drag or around a circuit.

3000 for a dx, and with more than twice the power i’d certainly hope so

still missing the point tho ¯\(ツ)

I may have considered a new Accord but I really dislike the looks of the 10th gen. I think the new Toyota Camry totally beat Honda on styling.

I think the Stinger has great styling, features, and acceleration. Kia actually hired someone from BMW's M to design the Stinger over 3 years. I think they wanted a brand symbol to get away from the stigma that most Americans still have from when Kia's and Hyundai's were first introduced to us 20 years ago. They certainly make much better looking cars than what they brought us when first entering the American market.

Cool. I drove a '18 GT1 for a weekend this past summer. It was pretty peppy. You'll have fun with it. Racechip will get you about 60 more HP and 120ish more TQ.
