Accord still got it! vs. 2016 A6

The Accord really surprised me last night. Ever since I took my cutout off and have been running with the stock exhaust, it just isn't quite the same. I had dyno'd with cutout open/closed awhile back...

Great run! 13.9 is very impressive for the 5AT, especially at that trap speed. With a solid launch and cooler temps, you could easily go mid 13s @ 104....dare I say 105?

Depends what mods on each car. A bolt on/tuned RSX (05-06 with the 4.7 FD are quicker) will easily pull a stock TL 6MT. A bolt on TL would be a much better race, but still tough.

Yonker's RSX is...

You need supporting mods in a supercharged car. If I'm not mistaken, exhaust mods will cool down the SC and help it run more efficiently. But I would put $ on my car vs. a SC only (no supporting...

OEM Jpipe is made for sound suppression and scavenging for a STOCK car. Once you start modding, that throws off exhaust scavenging because you are either sucking more air into the motor, or pushing...

Don't listen to me....Simione corrected me in saying that the J32a3 pistons are more domed than the J30s, so the bore is not the only difference. Lol, my bad.

Single. Same design as the J32a3 and J35a8. One of the ONLY differences between the J30a5 and the J32a3 is the 89mm bore. Only reason the compression is higher is because of the 86mm heads on the...

Yea the issue is the FD paired with the J36 low end. The FD is advertised as a 3.80, but is in fact a 3.94 (2013 V6 6AT Final Drive) according to research and trial & error. The 3.55 would be PERFECT...

Same dyno / SAE correction...I think you will make 252 after the PCDs. No reason the 3.2 can't make ~285-290 with full bolt ons. Simione did it with his J32 untuned. A couple CL guys have pushed 280...

Oh really? My mistake, that's interesting...I always thought the 3.7 with a larger TB was the best OEM setup. I didn't realize P2R was running a ported J32 w/Plenums on their race car. Good info.

You will probably gain 10-15whp peak, but more throughout the powerband. Jpipe and HF Precats are 2 great mods that no bolt on car should be without.
