Hope to do what?

To become a 10sec car with the stock engine and auto tranny?

No

To be made fairly quick and look nice?

Yes

What exactly are you trying to do?

swap the tranny... all autotragics are horribly sluggish.

Autobot, I'm wanting probably the same thing everyone else here wants, For people to quit calling it a Honda <img src=/images/forums/snitz/mad.gif width=16 height=16 border=0>. Plus if I happen to blow them away at the same time then that's an added bonus.

I have already put a CAI on the car, and was wondering what I could do next to get it to move faster, besides changing trannies(the wife can't drive a standard<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>).

Dude, there's a lot of **** you can do to that can! If it's the 1.6 DOHC, it's not really that bad. Get pulleys from nopi (www.nopi.com), you already got the intake, put an exhaust on, don't go too big though, you'll lose power! Fvck it, build it up, It'll be fjust fine!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Pullies will free up Hp for you.

BBTB = Big Bore Throtle Body

Sorry but with that autotragic tranny you are fighting a tougher battle. We will be carrying some tranny upgrades for the Tib but I do not know if they will work on the 1.6ltr accent or not. I will look into it for you. These upgrades will make you as fast if not faster than the manual accent.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> It will also make your tranny strong enough to handle boost.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

So basically what you are telling me AutoBot, is that I can go through the steps of fixing it up but won't see much gain from the labor, right?

if the tranny upgrades from the tiburon work for your 1.6 then you have great hope but if not you still can make it fast, just not as fast as a 5spd

Nope

What I am saying it you have the automatic tranny and that makes it tougher to to make the car fast.

From each mod you add you will still add to the performance of the car but the auto tranny is a drawback.

You can still add to the performance of your car but you are already starting off about 1 sec slower than a manual tranny.

How fast you can make the car depends on how much money you want to dump into it. So how much money do you want to dump into your car?

If you dump enough into it you can be faster then the Dragon Fab Tiburon. It has the auto tranny and is running 10.6 sec in the 1/4
mile.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Of course it does have 2 engines.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

In my opinion guys, its an automatic,
shoot it and put it out of its misery or teach your wife to drive a stick<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

That sounds bad though, teach your
wife to drive stick, sounds like a beavis
and butthead remark

Your car is capable of being somewhat "quick", it all depends on how you look at it. If quick is a 14sec. car, then you'll probably be satisfied. Man, an automatic is really gonna hold you back, but if you want to do your car up, then do it!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>I hope that you do decide to because at least you seem to care about speed, which is good because most people want "looks"<img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>Which is ok if your car is already fast.

If your plan on doing any work, let me suggest trading it in for the 5-speed.

I have the 2002 5-speed, and my friend has a 2002 auto. The autotragic sux. I doubt that they will make a shift kit for this car, but what do I know? <img src=/images/forums/snitz/angel.gif width=25 height=20 border=0>

Unfortunately the current trany upgrades will not work for the car but we will be looking into the posibility of having them made to fit.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> (no promises)

As far as shooting your car don't do that yet.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0> You have to realize that there is almost as many people that think all of us are idiots for tuning an accent to begin with.

If you let us know exactly what you want to achieve with your car and how much money you are willing to spend then we can tell you if it is possible.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Well, to be honest, I would much rather have a gerbil on steroids than drive a Honda.
