    It also looks more like the older gen. While I think this cool, I must state for the record that I would NEVER buy one. :o

    I would hope that a 3.8L v6 could produce 263 horsepower. I figure 75hp per liter should be standard on new engines.

    Anyways, im sure it'll move, but its not that special. Strap a bigger, less fuel efficient engine in an accord and im sure it'll move too.

    For the record, the accord hybrid has nearly the same amount of horsepower :ugh:

    I have the 2001 GT, and I like it. Besides the weight issue, I like the way it moves. With the proper suspension upgrades I've made, JIC, sway bar kit, and new brakes, it handles a lot better than stock. But that damn weight is too much!
