    Hello, my name is Michael Garza. Since the late 80s my most common online name in forums and games has been Artema. I had a 1993 Honda Accord as my first car, and it finally died from the Colorado Springs cold in early 2010. I picked up a blue 2008 Nissan Sentra as a quick replacement, which has now become my wife’s car. I have since moved to the Central Coast of California. I decided that because I was coming up on my re-enlistment with the Air Force, which I did on June 13th of last 2011, that I would get a car with my bonus pay. I considered many things such as the 300, RX8, RSX, Legacy GT, CLK430, Impreza, etc. I decided based on performance in its class, family car attributes, reliability, and upgradability, to get a 2008 Honda Accord V6 Coupe. I almost drove a few hours to get one in Ventura, but a 2009 with 32k miles appeared in Lompoc, only 10 minute drive away. I couldn’t figure out why it was 4,700 under the Kelly Blue Book value, but I jumped on it.

    My first modification was a Takeda short ram intake. I could feel the power increase immediately, and my wheels spun more even into second gear.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884461693_47d4d3cc4e_z_d

    Next I picked up the set of T-Rex billet grilles, which are of superb quality.

    The thing that gets me the most complements came next. I got the Anzo 121258 headlights with R8 style LED. Their quality is very high, and it looks amazing when it gets dark.

    The dark window visors from Weathertech are a very subtle addition, but are very functional and striking. I also picked up the Weathertech trunk liner, and digital fit mats for front and rear.

    I love my Anzo 321182 tail lights which are full LED!

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884465743_8fa8caae58_z_d

    I briefly tried the terrible LeBra nose mask, and threw all but the hood portion in the trash.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884466943_a5d6d5729a_z_d

    Before a car show I tossed on a decepticon logo. I got a lot of compliments. I took it off a few weeks later and people harassed me, so I put it back on! And me next to a GT-R.

    My awesome Muffler Shop in Lompoc hooked me up with these exhaust tips!

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884468637_aa366da4af_z_d

    I got a dragon license plate frame and the Type-R red H emblem for the rear of my car. You can also see my tow hook that was only on for the picture, currently in my glove box.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884469729_54330a7d14_z_d

    The 5zigen FN01R-C were calling to me. They were a beautiful 5-spoke wheel used for drifting and racing due to their construction quality and being only 17.5 lbs. Black/polish style was my favorite. At this time I stuck with my stock Michelin tires, as they had plenty of tread left.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884470913_26416a6682_z_d

    I picked up some Silblade Red wipers. Painting my plastic pieces under the hood seemed like a good idea, and it has grown since then. I also got a Mugen oil cap.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884472713_160ea6be4a_z_d

    The red caliper covers from MGP were easy to install through the wide spokes in my wheels!

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884473783_ac843ff22c_z_d

    The P2R throttle body spacer was woefully unimpressive. I am sure it adds some power, but I didn’t feel a difference. Every little bit counts, and hopefully adds up! I also got a Mugen radiator cap, and cap cover.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884475161_716bc41e30_z_d

    EBC Blackdash rotors going in the front. I already had them on the rears, but the shipment was split and delayed. They looked so nice before the coating wore off!

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884476341_e0da4e9647_z_d

    My car came with HFP suspension, but I wanted to go a little lower. I picked up some Eibach Pro Kit springs, the Megan Racing camber arms, and a Progress 22mm rear sway bar.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884477171_b1ff8e2eea_z_d

    My car won the Quaker State Ride of the Month in August, right after Jorge! Anyone want my old chrome mirror covers?

    The Unorthodox Racing stock diameter pulley install was a pain! We had the car on a lift and put a pipe over a breaker bar to extend it to around 6 feet long. Three of us finally popped the crank bolt free, and the car almost spun and hit the wall. I felt the gains from it after early acceleration. Very nice!

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884481879_e33e2a0d75_z_d

    The hefty rear sway bar made the car feel a bit off, so I decided to be the first person to swap in the 3.7L Acura TL AWD’s front sway bar. This is an upgrade from 27.2mm to 31mm. This time I also got the TL’s end links to match, as my Accord links were popping. The body roll difference is remarkable! This is still one of my favorite suspension upgrades.

    Stoptech’s stainless steel braided brake lines were calling to me, and I found them for a little over $100 for all four.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884501251_fd25f3ce35_z_d

    These Mugen pedals are sweet. The brake is the best, I keep the gas pedal to match, but the grip on the brake is stellar.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884502263_c9848a4e5e_z_d

    I picked up a red H for my steering wheel from CorSport USA. It is for the Civic, but I put 3M tape inside the original, placed this on top, then put 3M emblem glue to ensure the edges wouldn’t come up.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884503295_656139b2e0_z_d

    I got wheel spacers! My offsets are currently +32 in the front with no camber, and +22 in the rear with 1.8 degrees of negative camber.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884504301_8a71f67535_z_d

    I could not stand the slippery feel of the Michelin tires, and the sides were splitting at 35k miles. I picked up the most amazing tires I’ve ever seen. The Nitto NT05! I put these at 225/40 on my front drive wheels for drag capability. The take-off at WOT does not slip at all, even in 25 degree weather with rain! Cornering and stopping are amazing too. They started as loud as the Michelin, but have gotten quieter a few thousand miles in. I had no need for my rear tires to wear out as fast as the 200 tread wear rating monsters up front, so I got the Continental DWS for the rears. They’re so quiet!

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884739465_17cb987475_z_d

    My local Muffler Shop was awesome again. After I installed my RV6 Version 3 J-pipe, they increased my piping to 2.5 inches back to the Y before the mufflers. Later they cut in my Vibrant large resonator to get rid of the annoying “dirt bike” sound that popped up.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884505557_ceae8386d6_z_dAccord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884506561_d7e4dab11a_z_dAccord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884508883_ff1ed74f32_z_d

    The V6 automatics are known for having transmission issues not too late into their lives, and I like acceleration! I decided to pick up a B&M Transmission Supercooler. The install was not too bad. The place to tap in is on the driver’s side of the radiator. Run that in one side, and the other back into the transmission.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884507751_4447b8d6c4_z_d

    I decided to get my grille powder coated black! I think it was a great change. Also you can see my Colgan custom sport mask with the “carbon fiber” design. I have matching ones on my side mirrors.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884509833_45fa5c4c8e_z_d

    I did a second major photoshoot, mostly near the ocean at the beginning of 2012, and got a better reception this time, as I had weeded out some of the early mistakes in design. The front Type-R red H emblem also showed up here.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884511267_dd0db02bf9_z_dAccord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884512613_1c5f7a7e4f_z_dAccord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884513865_8d9b17cba1_z_d

    My MDX riser finally arrived from Paul! I polished the interior before installation a few weeks later.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884514723_0c31d3cf1d_z_d

    I finished putting LED in the rest of the car. The 3rd brake light, the reverse lights, and upgraded the trunk light to a super bright. The interior had been LED for half a year.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884516141_4b267e0f5b_z_d

    I’m unhappy with the chrome near the doors, so I got some Rustoleum Black Chrome paint. I like how it turned out, but I have some non-V6 handles on the way, and need to repaint the trim. I do like the color.

    My Ultra Racing strut bar arrived. I painted the center red to match my interior. I discovered that the shop must have over-torqued one of the nuts, and when putting it on one bolt just sheared off. I decided at that point to upgrade to coilovers.

    I got a nice shot of my co-workers’ cars near mine. 1993 Toyota MR2, 2004 Impreza WRX, and Snow (the name my daughter gave to my car).

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884529855_86f311e13e_z_d

    I got DDM 35W 8k HID, and Nokya Hyper Yellow for the fogs.

    My BC Racing coilovers arrived! Installation of these was supposed to be before the MDX riser, but Pepboys had a customer service issue with me and I left.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884533173_225dc7a3c5_z_d

    Finally the P2R ported intake runners, which had been on my office floor since August, and the riser from the Acura MDX could finally be installed on the J35Z2! I am currently working out a CEL for Vacuum loss, but a new Honda Gasket and some 3M yellow gasket glue should clear things up after I crack it open again.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884534543_d2f2ee2de4_z_dAccord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884535865_2926b04ac3_z_dAccord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6884537373_9042ab0a61_z_d

    My BC Racing coilovers were installed today. I am lower than before, but not slammed. The ride quality is amazing. Dips are the biggest improvement, as I don’t bounce as much. Cornering seems improved, acceleration lifts the car less, and braking no longer slams the front of the car down so hard. I also now have SPC front upper ball joints, and J-power toe and control arms to assist the existing Megan camber arm.

    I got my Crystal Black Pearl door handles installed!

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6919659127_3d5ed1966a_z_d

    I got the Acura TSX key programmed. Both are North American cars, so it works with my Accord Coupe.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6924478777_06f3419734_z_d

    Installed lots of new red silicone hoses, and painted the manifold cover. Also I got the plastic cover to mount even with the MDX riser, which wouldn't let it into the normal locations.

    Accord Coupe J35Z2+MDX riser 6784270480_c107ed40ed_z_d

    OBDII bluetooth connection to my MBPro running Parallels to PCMSCAN software to read my ECU! I'm totally hooked up like Fast and the Furious!

    Welcome to the forums.
    Love the Accord man. Extremely tasteful mods, I like the direction you're heading with this build. It's nice to see another Honda owner thinking outside the box, and not conforming to the unfortunate stereotypes that seem to follow our Hondas. Keep up the good work!

    Thank you! I wasn't a car guy before this, so I haven't been a part of the scene or anything. I just wanted to fix up a car since I could finally afford to do so. I had the benefit of having no "box" to try to fit in.

    Welcome to the forums. Another service member too. Seems a lot of us are tuning cars. I haven't seen many military guys tune domsetics... lol. MO Army National Guard here, but in an Aviation unit. I'll be nice and spare the Air Force craks, you might have to fly me to the sandbox. In all seriousness, although I'm not much of an Accord fan (I'm forced to drive my dad's right now. Going to be taking our Eclipse to the shop and have the timing set and on the new motor and installed) I like where yours is going. Clean, with tasteful mods. Never driven there, but I've heard Cali laws SUCK. If i end up doing reclass school out there I'm already anticipating them to pull me over just because i have a body kit and some intake and exhaust goodies. Ah well.

    Again, the Accord looks clean. Whats your figures?

    I appreciate saving the Air Force jokes, so I'll withhold any Guard comments, lol. I'm a tech training instructor out here. Yeah, a stock Accord is unimpressive, especially the lower trims and 4 cylinder. What figures do you mean?

    HP, Torque, M.P.G.'s etc. Dad's 2001 EX has leather, 6 disc, and sunroof. not too bad, but i wish he'd have gone with the 6 cylinder. the damn thing has about 231,xxx miles and a nice (insert sarcasm) over-rev from first into second gear. Doesn't always happen though. In my opinion, Honda could do so much more with their performance division. Mitsubishi, Subaru, and Nissan all offer models with at least one turbo. Toyota has stepped away from that since the demise of the Supra.

    I have a buddy who was a hoseman in the navy. I give him hell about it every time i see him. Plus, we all know Marine's arent very smart: Muscles Are Required, Intelligence Not Essential.

    I'll get a dyno one of these days, so I don't have that. I could get very nice highway mileage with cylinder deactivation (VCM goes down to 3), but I accelerate hard to maintain a fairly steady 19.9 mpg bounce I'm hoping for an LSD to be confirmed for this car. It is a great shell, but as you said Honda, doesn't focus on performance like they could. My upgrades have made it a super fun car, but definitely not a race car! I installed my new 6-point camlock harness last night, and will install a 50-shot wet system this weekend!

    Nitrous huh? Never thought of that as a worthy mod unless it was for track use. But to each his own. I want to do a set of racing harnesses and seats in our Eclipse. Once it's all said and done (for now) I'll have about 200 horses out of the 2.4L, which is rated for about 147HP. Eventually, after i build the wide body and swap on a set of BMW M3 wheels, the missus and i are dropping in a 13B-REW (twin turbo) out of a 1997 Mazda RX7. Looking for a minimum of 300 horses there. Course with the motor weighing a scan 122 pounds dry (no fluids) it'll be like adding a few carbon fiber pieces to the body and stripping the interior. I estimate that the 4G64 in the Eclipse weighs maybe 500 lbs.

    Nice! And a 50 shot is barely anything as far as N2O goes. I just want to get a bit faster 0-60 and quarter mile times, plus I do plan on tracking a bit. My cornering is pretty impressive for a 3400 pound family car, haha.

    A 50 shot is tiny, means extra 50 HP, and I should be in the 250-275 range, so 300-325 isn't going to blow anything up. How much g-force? I could probably calculate it on my 5.4s 0-60 (pre-N2O).

    Yeah, I hear 1G is perfect in cornering. Most cars can obtain maybe .5G.

    I recently added an ingalls torque damper, a 1/0 AWG big 3 upgrade, and swapped to a VTEC engine cover.

    Nice work, I wanna hear some feedback on the wet system you set up. We're sprayin' my buddy's eg hatch and we don't quite know what to go with.. I'm sure it'll be between 50 and 75.
    Harnesses look good, can't wait to get mine installed.

    Wow I've been gone for awhile and I must say your Accord is one of the best looking new gens I've seen. I also applaud you for using quality parts! especially using 5Zigen wheels over shit Vossen, XXR, Rotas etc. Nice performance mods love the fact that you've put thought into the motor and hell you're gonna with spray!! Will keep an eye on this!

    Thank you! That is some kind words. I appreciate when people appreciate my choices, haha. The wheels are a tough one too. The forum that I'm on that is a bit more active, all the Miami guys run on Vossens. Since I'm REALLY low, but not slammed and running 20 inch wheels I get a lot of flak. Also not using the HFP lip kit, and don't hear the end of it there sometimes. I made up for it for having the nicest engine bay a bit, and my creativity with some of the mods!

    BTW, if anyone is interested, check out the car's fan page on FB, lol:

    Question though how do have the harness mounted? Only asking out of safety concern are you using a harness bar?
