Default Honda Accord: 4 banger verses V6

I currently own an 2004 Honda Accord EX Coupe V6 and I'm loving the car. And I wanted to get your opinions on how you guys think about this: I hear people say how 4 banger is a better option than a V6. In many ways like installing turbo, supercharger, maintainence, etc. I'm pretty sure this is off topic but please discuss this with me

I think the V6 is by far better than the 4cyl. I mean most people out there will only get intake, header, and exhaust. Very few will get a turbo. If they do get a turbo they will need to beef up the tranny and spend even more money.

Since the 7th gen has the k series, it does have a lot of potential since it's responsive to mods. But stock for stock, the v6 is the better option. And if we're talking FI, then the v6 still beats the 4 banger no matter which way you look at it. The only way for the 4 banger to come even close to the v6 is the k20/24 swap and boost it. But the j32 from the TL can be swapped into the v6 and make it into a 3.5L with the rods and pistons from the pilot or mdx (I forgot which one) and you'll still be making more power than the 4 banger. Down side, either way you look at it, money is the deciding variable. And maintainence cost a little bit more than the 4 banger.

i've got the 4 cyl and i'm loving it. it's got plenty of quick to it especially with the top speed governor removed and the cold air intake. With those 2 mods alone i'm keeping up with my brothers Dinan chipped 325i, and i've got my own chip comming in the mail. To top it all off i'm averaging 420 miles to a tank.

I mean.. I guess the V6 can be better but why is it SOHC? ALL Honda V6 engines are SOHC not DOHC.. why why why.. and they say how Honda is known for its 4 cyl engines??

the NSX has a DOHC V6. They use SOHC for a few reasons. It's cheaper to make; less moving parts = more reliable than it's DOHC counterpart (hypothetical); SOHC is smaller than DOHC.

My gripes are: Why did they take out the second step of VTEC control on the 6th gens and wtf is with this crappy auto tranny!

i got my chip off of ebay for one (chose the 100% garenteed one), and for the 420 miles to a tank, 1, i usually am driving freeway and 2, i'm light on the gas unless i'm driving my favorite windy road or mashing a random car that looks fast
