Hiya guys, I have a 2003 honda accord executive with the k20a6 engine. 155bhp is nice but I'd like to try and squeeze out 180-190 is this possible without having to remortgage?! If so what mods would you recommend? I have a high flow panel filter on the way and am going to get a ss cat back exhaust for starters. Any help much appreciated

Sorry to dissappoint you, but you'll never get 180bhp without turbo

Decent exhaust and induction and a reflash from Ukcl9 will see you hitting around 170bhp, still worth doing.

Thanks for the input guys. What about changing up cams or swapping the head for a k20a2? Anyone had any experience in this?

I understand it's an economic engine I'm not disputing that haha I don't want to just sell it and buy something els if I was going to do that I could by something much quicker than a cl9 lol I just want to get the best out of the engine I have while I have it but thanks for your input!

its not as simple as that.ive seen it done once in ireland.it cost thousands.and a mod list the lenth of your arm to do it.it still made under 200 bhp...the k20a6 is an ECO ENGINE...not built for performance.buy a cl9 if you want bhp and fun
To be honest, after 2 years i still haven't found the eco engine underneath my bonnet :-/

price is £200 to the first person who has a k20A6 reflash..in return for the discount you have to write a detailed review of the reflash on this forum

thanks
So they part number on the ecu unit right? Will check these for you next week.
