Re: Sil2DrV6's 2002 Accord Coupe EX-L V6

Thank you so much for such kind comments, gentlemen! I'm glad that this upgrade is contributing to some of you folks' ideas for upgrading your system in the future.

Thanks, Derek. I remember I mentioned this to Mikey once but, I wanted to get a set of wheels that were looking close to my stock wheels. I almost chose the Acura A-spec wheels but I was still being undecided until I saw this.












Was hell of an inspiration. Lol Then, the BBS CF was the closest one to that haha.

There's so much more to a car than fitment, and Richard's car is a perfect example. This coupe displays a level of attention to detail and quality at levels I've seen with few other 6GA's. I'd love to see this car adorn our front page.

My opinion.
Wow, thank you for admiring my mods, Chris. Stanced cars look cool, but it's just not practical to me, when I want to drive my car everywhere. It's not like I drive aggressively most of the time, but I just don't have any patience to drive slow 'n avoid scraping the car, or being okay with it, all the time haha. You know by now that I'm ridiculously anal about my car, but I just love working on small mods; It is merely self-pleasing stuff. Lol Thank you again; I hope I can earn this one day, and give shout-out to everyone how much this community has helped me and my car. And, contribute back to them in return.

Thank you, Jordan. Oh, c'mon stop that. Lol 100x is a lil too much haha. I love your sedan. I believe "age doesn't matter, when it comes to be a car-enthusiast" and, being your age, you have a very nice taste on your mods and ideas for your car. I was never at your level, when I was at your age. ← And, the internet wasn't quite there yet either haha. I see some tastefully modded 6gens on the forum, like yours at your age, and I'm truly amazed by them. Well, actually, I usually end up measuring waaay more than twice before I cut once. Lol Sometimes it's ridiculous tho. Otherwise, it didn't take 8 years for me to upgrade my exhausts haha. I LOVE researching for ideas & deciding on parts for a considerable amount of time, long enough so I don't get any remorse. (The longer the time, the more money can be saved, too!) To me, it's fun to spend a long time on that. It's kinda like choosing what to wear your shoes 'n clothes on a date with a girl, rather than asking someone what to wear.

Thanks, James! Hey, don't forget to lmk when you're gonna come down to Seattle next time! If it's Sat, I can always swing by and say hello to you 'n your IS.

That's good to know, Varnell. Yep, looks aftermarket-ish, yet still Honda genuine. Mufflers can be mounted higher than how I have them now, depending on the length of the hangers. (My hangers are 6GA OEM custom-welded to the mufflers.) Your main concern will be the Y-pipe's ground clearance, which you might want to have it custom made, but the Y-pipe can also achieve a higher clearance if you weld / secure the pipe with an angled piece of a metal clamp.

Thanks, Alex! Oh, so you moved into a different place right? That's sweet! Thanks for the invitation. Gotta check out your new place, sometimes! It's been a while since we went to the sushi place, too.

Thanks!

Here're the ones that I was telling Michael about.




Wasn't really a pretty place for a shoot, but oh well.

That was taken at the back lot of a local drug store lol. (Was a guy out there on his break, smoking a cigarette, seeing me taking pics 'n asking me if I was trying to sell the car lol.) Thanks!

I don't know If I'll use this a lot, but this could be very popular in U.S. Don't you think so, guys?
Finally had a chance to use this for the first time!

It cleans up the engine oil sludge by simply adding it from the oil filler right before the oil change, let the engine run in idle for 10 min, and perform the oil change.

Test drove it, and the car seems to accelerate way smoother than before. Was hoping for the engine to become quieter, but kindda hard to tell on that, since it was raining hard all day. Hopefully, I'll be able to get some better gas mileages, but we'll see.


More stuff coming out soon!
How did this thing work out? Is this kind of like using seafoam in the oil? Cant find it anywhere online

Pretty funky thing, right?? I think it would be a smash hit, if this was available in U.S. Lol.

It worked fine. I mean, didn't notice a huge difference, but I take it as a good thing, because my engine might not have been so dirty inside. MPG didn't really change either.

A regular engine-flush service at a shop will do the job, but I thought it was a cool thing (and cheaper than the flush service) so I just bought it, when I was visiting Japan last yr.

Your best bet is to search it in Rakuten Global Market, which is one of the major Japanese online store's international version (for us to purchase JDM stuff online to your door). I did a quick search on it, but it wasn't available, but it might pop up in the future though. Besides, you might find some other JDM stuff that interests you, so check it out sometimes. (Hey, you might be able to find that French fry holder LOL.)

Yeah so many people would have that LOL

I used seafoam in my engine and it did a similar thing. It also got rid of my CEL which was great haha So i guess I'll just sick with that or some other oil treatment. Its similar to that because you just add some to your oil and drive for like 100 miles or so then change the oil. I had a noticeable difference driving and it was a lot more smooth. V6 MPG was still killer haha I dont think anything will change that!

Do you visit japan a lot? Like all of your stuff seems to be straight from there hahaha or do you order it all online. I'll save that site if i need anything in the future lol thanks!

I go there about once a year. Yep, I get most of my stuff when I go there. My parents live there, and they come in to see me from time to time, so if there's something I REALLY want, I can order it online 'n have it shipped to their house so they can bring it to me here. (They're getting old, so I can't ask them to bring in a bulky stuff, like a strut tower bar lol.)

I do use Rakuten Global sometimes. It's nice that the site is in English, but if you ever have trouble reading JPN words on a product label in their pic description, feel free to lmk.
