How do I increase my acceleration and get better throttle response
I have an 09 civic ex auto. I usually drive manual trannys but I was in a motorcycle accident and broke my back. Now I can't clutch because I'm paralyzed. I need my speed though and this auto tranny is killing me. It accelerates like an 90 year old man climbing the steps of the Empire State Building. I need some tips on getting more out of my car. I added a Weapon R short RAM intake but I want to maybe change out some pulleys or something. Help please.
Honda auto tranny's are no good, they are slow and not very reliable!
I'd start with a good Intake, headers, cat back or custom exhaust, a larger throttle body and air filter. You can always add a turbo or supercharger if you need more. But at all this cost, just trade the civic in for something quicker with an automatic.
Get a mercedes c200 auto.... mercedes is reliable and it's fast too! not necesarily a new one get a good used merc! my bro has a 2000 c200 auto and it's awesome!
