I've got the V6 battery and TL-S sway bars, and planning to do the V6 strut bar, what else is there? I'm not interested in the V6 brake upgrade at the moment because mine have plenty of life left and work great. And no, I don't want the V6 engine. I like having all of my spark plugs :x

I'm keeping my car forever. There's nothing I can't fix, unless it gets in a wreck.

You can rig up a second exhaust finisher and pose like a big dog with 80 more HP.
Nah, don't want my car to make me look like some V6 princess who uses a lift to install his TL-S bars :hic:

I used a lift to change my oil and ATF too cuz it only costs me $5 and they recycle my fluids right there. I'm all for working smarter and not harder; because I can. I don't think you could afford it because you are always fixing broken poop on that "most meticulously REPAIRED accord on this site" car of yours and you'd be spending $500 per month in lift fees.

Start looking on ebay for a used V6 engine... that's what you need. You cannot gain 80HP by doing any other mods unless you put in a turbo.
Don't want the V6 engine. Wouldn't mind the power but I don't want the baggage that comes with it. Just want my car to handle like a V6 car.

You may not get a discount, but you definitely have that role down pat. :x
Nah, I drive a 4cyl and used jack stands to install my TL-S bars

Well... technically, it should handle better. Less weight up front.

Oh, never mind! Carry on, gentlemen.

and what may that baggage be?

2 less miles a gallon?

a timing belt once in a couple of years?

2 extra spark plugs?

Do you realize that you put more money in repairing yours than me in my timing belt?

In my 10 years of owning this Accord since 27k miles, I have put $900 in it...that is parts and labor together.

That excludes regular maintenance such as fluid changes and filters.

You know what comes with baggage? VW, Audi, BMW, Fiat!!! You haven't seen baggage until you paid 5K for a clutch replacement on a BMW. Calling trifles baggage is absurd.

Fearing my spark plug will blow at any second, chewing transmissions quicker, timing belt, etc.

Yeah I could have just not replaced several things, but I like peace of mind having no doubt that I can go anywhere at a moment's notice with a reliable car.
