    if you are on a budget, leave it stock. you wont have money to repair it.

    Intake header exhaust. Remember though, it's an accord. It will never be "fast". But you can make it faster than stock though.

    I think it should be noted that it's hard to make the car "fast" on a budget. Basically, an Accord could become just as fast as any other fwd 4 cyl when given enough money and time. On a budget, though, it probably won't be "fast," just "faster."


    As far as the original question goes, turbocharging offers better bang for the buck, but it's also easier to blow up.

    ok thanks for the tips, i hate to sell my accord i love how its laid out inside, the car its very comfortable, i just want to fix it up a little, if i blow the motor it would suck but i know where 5 or 6 more are with a damn good price. im not trying break any speed records just wanting to have fun and build somthing to be proud of

    yeah but i didnt bitch or ask stupid questions and direction on how. i figured out what i wanted to do, learned the needed tasks, spent the money and got the job done.

    if i want to buy a fast stock car, i will with my perfect credit, thanks :)
