wadup guys my name is Claude I live in FL i recently pick up a brand new 2012 tsx se 6 speed my previous car was a 96 accord so this build will be kinda slow as im learning from this site and yes ill be using the SEARCH button alot :)
now in to pics
the day after i bought her












quick interior shots








then a couple days later i removed the emblem on the trunk


AFTER so much cleaner also got rid of the dealer plate thingy



this was my first mod the CT ENGINEERING icebox air intake system to had a couple more ponies


NEXT
i installed and hid kit on the fog 6k and replaced the factory bulb also with 6k


kinda look greenish on the pics but its a nice ice blue

ANYWAY i did a couple things to her nothing crazy
1)that huge chrome thingy grill was not doing it for me i did not see anything that i really except for the mugen :salook: in the mid time i color matched it :sasmokin:
BEFORE


AFTER im really happy with the outcome kinda aggressive

2) since im not planning on putting any exhaust yet i got rid of the factory muffler tip and replaced them by the v6 8th gen accord (tsx left accord right)


OEM

ACCORD V6 nothing crazy but something

THEN I INSTALLED MY OEM FLUSH MOUNT ALONG WITH SOME REAR WINDOW VISOR
NOW THIS IS THE REAR WITH THE PARTS






NEXT I INSTALLED MY LED DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS + DRL DECODER KIT

THE OUTCOME




got the windows tinted with Pinnacle formula one high performance 30% all around just to keep the interior a bit cooler since its hot as hell in fl and more privacy :D


new dailies just waiting to be drop


putting some luv in that interior i bought some direct fit led lights i gotta say these things are really bright




final product im really pleased with them

this is where she is at so far
1) was a p2r tbs i know most people say its a rip off thats what i thought too until a guy that i recently met at a meet made 3hp out it lol on a dyno not much but hey anything to squeeze some hp

half hr later p2r installed

then at the same meet some was selling an injen bnib (sri and cai) for dirt cheap along with the ima cover even though i already have the ctr i bought ill probably sell it later but ima try it to see who do i like best

now i had to remove the remaining left over from the oem box (resonator)


took me nearly one hr :( but its done :)


then i removed the factory ima cover i wanted the 1st gen (black) bought i found something better


voila
chrome injen cover ima keep the bay like that chrome and polish




an after market battery tie down that i had for the accord

Ur 2nd Gen looks mean!! :thumbsup:

Have u thought about blacking out the fog housings to make it uniform and what did u use to paintmatch the grill??

Engine bay looks clean. Which do u prefer, CT icebox or Injen?? Have u dyno'd the results of each?

yes ive been thinking about color matching the fog housing and the chrome door handle also actually thats what ill do next
as far as intake i like the CT icebox wayyyyyy better then the injen 1st cause it is so much quieter and 2nd cause of the oem look no dyno yet but i feel a better pull on the cai injen
