9th Gen Accord - Low-hanging Fruit?    (Score: 1, Normal) 11-23-2018 17:28
Reply to This Message Attach Quote to Reply
So I ended up buying out the lease on my San Marino Red 2016 Accord Sport 6MT earlier this year and I'm looking for the best quick and easy options for improving the driving experience in the car while keeping it as my DD/commuter.

First thing I did was swap out the factory RSB with the 19mm from the 4th gen TL (FWD) which improved the feel quite a bit for ~$70 in parts and a couple of hours with my buddy. (Would've done the full TLX swaybar swap but didn't end up feeling like going through the FSB dance.) Also pulled the plug to the ANC unit, something I should have done long long ago.

I'm thinking about going ahead and springing for KTuner as well to eliminate the rev hang. Looking for the first opportunity to get rid of the delay valve in the clutch slave cylinder without making that its own job.

Does anybody have any other suggestions for getting the most out of my Accord, or anything else that I may be overlooking?

Cool something to look at after I get bored of the Acura swaybar. Any need for front swaybar changes with the Progress bar?

Also, anyone with experience here running KTuner on a 9th gen 4-cyl? Drivability gains with stock driveline, or only if running hi-octane + bolt-ons (or only with even more serious mods)?

Any other good drivability/livability stuff I should be looking at? Will need tire recs here in another 12 months or so.
