You cant turbo the v6 accord due to the exhaust manifolds being part of the cylinder head.. these revisions however added quite a few ponys.. best option to get max power is to stroke it or swap it... See if you can find a Comptech Supercharger.. they go for about 4gs... or you can do internal work.. by getting TL-S cams (direct swap), Acura MDX Crank and Rods, and high compression pistions.. all these are direct swaps and will only take a weekend for a decent DIY mechanic... afterward i would highly recomend tuning using a Greddy E-manage or equivalent piggy back for the rest of the car.... full cat back as well as a new J-Pipe and Test pipe (google: honda accord J-Pipe, they're being custom made for the J30A5 and being sold at in the forum) ... Hope that helped

This won't really add power but it will increase your acceleartion. Visit, they sell Underdrive pulleys that replace our stock pulley. It will reduce your weight and give you increased acceleration. Runs about $250.

If you start spending big money on horsepower, there comes a point at which you might as well just get an engine with more displacement. Dodge Charger 6.2 or a Mustang 5.0.

Cheap parts your could get is a obx crank pulley, a half size radiator, delete p/s (optional), custom headers, bigger intake manifold bigger throttle body (research compatible Honda ones). U want a cheap fast f series ur gonna have to give a lot more fuel and air.....but people are right; long gear tranny, 140-150 from factory motor and weak clutch and axles. U want a cheap fast accord? Go get a eBay turbo kit, get arp stud bolts, axles rated for 300hp and a stage 2 clutch. Motor is low compression, loves boost

Not one useful comment! I asked what was the 1st thing I should do to my 2006 Honda Accord 3.0 sedan with automatic transmission to go faster. I plan on putting a Borla tuned exhaust so it breaths better and a cold air intake. What next. Some said get a real car. It's all I got. I've seen videos of Accords walking off from Lamborghinis, Toyotas and Vetts.
