Default I found "The Chip"

Spoke to a fellow who owns a Japanese resturant and who is into Accords.He turned me on to a local shop that does chips. Today I went and spoke to the owner and he told me that a chip for the 03 V6 Accord exists.
Hot damn! The ECU has to be pulled and sent to California for modification and the car will be down for 3 days. I can expect 15 more horses when shes done. With the bolt ons I have and then the chip I can expect a few mores ponies than the NSX off of the showroom floor. Love those Accords!
Hona did do their homework on the factory exhust. It's free flowing enough that it does not justify aftermarket headers ( on the V 6)

Might be these folks, they've been around a long time. I used their chip on a 1988 Blazer that I bought new. The Accord ECU doesn't have a plug in so unsoldering (is that a word?) old and soldering in new is the way it's done.

Yeah, there are a couple do it yourself sites for working on the stock ecu's showing what burn in chips you want and which chips to remove and the fact you want to solder in a socket so you can basically chip on the go.
If you ever want to learn to do it yourself heres a site
