    1. Is this your first car?

    I have owned and messed around a lot of different cars but 6GA is the first car of mine that went through some MAJOR mods and endless amounts of time and effort.

    2. How did you end up with the accord?

    Previous car had a lot of issues and this seemed like a decent upgrade back in 2001.

    3. When did you first start modifying cars?

    At the age of 16 but heavy mods started with the accord about a year or two back.

    4. Did you run into any problems along the way when you were modifying stuff?

    It being a 6GA, with next to almost no after market high performance support, almost every single thing had to be "custom". That made me run through all sorts of different issues with engines, transmissions, parts, you name it! But in the end it all worked out just fine

    5. Why do you do it? Why not leave it stock?
    Everyone has their poison, this is mine

    6. What other mods do you have planned for the car?

    A couple of aesthetic upgrades as well as maybe running a smaller brake setup to run slicks in the front.

    7. Any other cars you're tinkering with?

    Had a side project going that i abandoned due to circumstances. Do have an infinity G37Xs which is my daily but that is stock and is going to be that way.

    8. What's your favorite thing about your car, specifically? Which money do you feel was your best investment?

    My fav thing about my car would be when people give it a first look "oh nice looking accord", and then the 44mm wastegate opens to drop jaws haha but my best investment would have to be my Pspec short shifter! I really love that thing.

    9. Is there anybody you would like to credit or thank for helping you along the way?

    6GA community for helping me make some very important decisions along the way and greg who has helped me out with all sorts of different issues that i came across with the car.
