Nice car. 6-speed? Any interior shots?
nah it's auto
i'll get some interior shots up tomorrow
i love this car
a son of my neighbor has one that's all black, dropped, and all shaved
thing is beautiful
how much mpg do u get?
When I went through my first tank, I got around 270 miles out of it..without ever going over 3k rpm... so I figure around 16mpg
eh, I like to have a little fun here and there...but I'm not really that aggressive with it. Maybe I should try filling up with 91 instead of 87?
No stay with 87 because it's not a big motor so there's no point of using high performance gas
My bro uses 91 on his Vette..
Having a big motor does not mean you need 91 octane, and having a small one does not mean that you do not need 91 octane. For example, my GMC truck with a 5.3L V8 runs great with 87 octane, but when I had my RSX-S with a 2.0L I4 engine, it ran like ass on anything less than 91 octane.
talk about misinformation.
the size of the engine alone has nothing to do with its octane requirements.
my 2.4l srt4 and my brother's 1.6l miniS both require 92+ octane. (because they're forced induction) my father's 5L M5 takes premium as well. (high compression)
a 4.6l mustang takes 87+. (low compression)
what does the owners' manual tell you?
Perfect explanation... couldn't find the right words. I wouldn't even risk my M5 with anything less than 91.
you'll be wasting your money. despite its 10.0:1 compression ratio, the accord v6 was designed to use "regular" fuel. (according to the pdf i downloaded from honda's website)
the car won't intelligently advance spark or do anything to take advantage of the increased detonation resistance of the premium fuel.
if anything, it'll run worse.
it's new, take it to the dealer and have them check it. maybe your tire pressures are low?
bone stock? the factory info stated regular.
this would likely mean that they're expecting the car to run on a certain knock value/threshold the entire time it's on regular and then when you put in premium it's supposed to make the assumption after how much time of X lower knock value that it's supposed to up the spark? please link me to this info as i find it unlikely.
mind you, the inverse happens all the time. cars designed for premium see a certain average knock and drop timing and over X cycles will try to up it again.
and factory tuning. you can dick enough with ignition timing that the fords require higher octane just from a pcm reflash.
Interior & Engine shots STAT!
I'll post engine & interior shots tomorrow for ya
yeah and don't forget to break/remove one of your headlights while you're at it too
sweet. but did they fix that pos v6 tranny? Everytime i see that v6 engine in any honda...i go .
not too sure... are they that terrible? I haven't had any issues
The TL type S's had the most problems....I think Honda fixed it with the 04+ TL
I looked at this car last week, and I'm thinking about getting the LX v6, same exact thing except no leather. How much did this cost you?
Dealer also told me that these ones take 87
27,800...but I leased..
