My wagon is non-tech and I’ll prob install all these stuff by next month after we move in our new house because I don’t have a garage to work in

Congrats on the new property man.

Hey how are the Spec-D control arms holding up? I need to install my coilovers very soon but I need to order control arms and tops hats.

Thanks btw the spec d camber arms are still solid and holding up quite well. I wil definitely buy another set just in case but I think it will last for a long time

This looks great! Can't wait to see the rest of the build.

Funny, I'm a wagon owner from Vegas that also came from a v6 6th gen Accord sedan.

Let's talk about the exhaust. Could you get a sound clip or video? Is it wagon specific? Fitment on the exhaust looks great and the rear JDM bumper is stunning.

Hey whats up man, thanks! and Iíll do a sound clip with the Exhaust and then with my headers, HFC( hight flow Cat), Intake and supercharger. Also the exhaust is not specific, its from a sedan and Imo the fitment is perfect for my taste

Looks great man! I wish i could go balls to the wall and go SC but she will always be slow, I'm a wimp.

How is the Spec D rear camber kit? I need to fix the rears (was already -1.8 before I installed my Tien SA-Z's) I've been hearing bushing issues, but no real user input.

Thanks man, so far the spec D camber kit is still holding up great and no issues with the bushing and still solid, I will prob buy another set in the future just in case and The car is not slammed so I’m probably using the camber kit optimally

Not wasting any time! Wagon looks awesome, and can't wait to see the SC installed

@Sheefo2k, I believe the exhaust fitment looks better on OP's wagon because the JDM rear bumper doesn't stick out as much as the USDM one.

Did any of those mods make the wagon any faster? I am talking noticeable difference or simply louder?

sup man, I felt a power difference by adding the RV6 header with HFC, Greddy cbe, and the CAI, I could feel an improve initial torque and top end, and yes itís louder and drones a little while on throttle but fades away as you cruise, one thing to note itís loud inside the cabin because it has less insulation compare to a sedan which it has a back seat, but itís bearable for my taste and sound pretty good! Also I was about to put on a sound clip but I could not produce the quality I want from my IPhone, so Iím recording another soon.

Loving this build man! I am super interested to see how this turns out, it's pretty close to how I want to do mine!

I'm curious what made you chose the SA coils over the Flex?

It's not THAT bad of an automatic but it's subjective. The TSX will never be a performance track car, it's just an overall well balanced car. In my opinion, supercharging the wagon would be the best hp to $$ ratio while maintaining daily drive-ability. I am sure you can rebuild the engine, run a turbo, swap a manual transmission but in the end is it really going to be worth it? Again, in my opinion, no it will be money wasted down the drain.

Anyways, how's the wagon and the build coming along?

I just meant it's too bad it didn't have the same options as the sedan. Coming from a base rsx I'm definitely happy lol.

I am quite jealous of Jo's wagon. Looks so good

Thanks Guys! The Wagon feels better now as far as power but I will be going stage2 after the winter, And I know itís an Automatic but, it feels good especially using the manual(S) mode and Iíve driven manual cars and this thing is not that bad. Also this car is already paid off and it is stuck with me forever and I have more plans in the future and thinking about doing a manual swap and then internal upgrades. I know all arenít cheap but I got a good deal on the supercharger and I donít feel like this is a waste of money IMO because Iím utilizing it and itís my daily and project and I will run this car to the ground. Also I couldnít have done this without ďssjoeboe9Ē input and helpful information!

BTW I will be selling my TaKeDa CAI if anyone is interested

Ugh I need to order that blower too before it's too late and they are completely off the market.

Yeah it sucks I didn’t do a baseline dyno but with the weather conditions the car actually made 272 whp @ 7000rpm and also 296 [email protected] , I’m hoping to break 300 whp when I go stage 2 before summer. The car feels totally different and Also you can always buy a MercRacing supercharger and those things are better than CtE. When I plan to build the motor I will go with Merc

That's even better than I anticipated. I have a few questions for you:
1. Did you achieve these numbers by using the stock factory (CtE) tune? or did you dyno tune the car?
2. Does MercRacing offer a complete bolt-on kit? or are you planning on using CtE components and upgrade the blower to MercRacing?

Was your CtE kit new or preowned?

Thank you

1. I did a dyno tune on a Mustang Dyno and the CTe base map doesnít come close to the power I got and
2. I believe the Merc supercharger is probably 90% bolt on kit because my CTE kit is not 100% and I had to modify a few things on the engine coolant piping to make it work and when I upgrade to Merc I will use their supplied parts because Merc has a different Manifold setup and also my kit was preowned.
