Good to hear, but I'd be careful... the new accord coupes now come with a 5spd attached to their V6.

Very conservative testing indicated they'll scoot from 0-60 in a little over 6 seconds. Not bad... :wink:

That's the 6th generation accord. I had one in coupe form. Pretty nice car, just so damn boring. And the V6 on those only came with a 4 speed auto. Now the 7th gen accord coupe with the V6 and 6speed is nothing to laugh at. You chipped guys should be able to hang with it.

Ill chime in on this one. The one you raced is a 6th gen which is super slow compared to a new one. I have a 7th Gen V6 6 Speed and I ran a 14.4 stock in a quarter. Now I have some mods done (basic intake, exhaust, etc) and run High 13's on a good day. So no, these are not to be taken lightly. But if you're chipped, have an exhaust, and a KO4 setup, you should be able to hang with one and possibly beat one.

And as an FYI, if you see a V6 Badge in RED, then those are the 6 speeds, unless your debadged like me :lol:
