Isn't Inspire designed in Japan also? or was it designed in US?
The current JDM Inspire is the 4th generation of vehicle to bear that name and is based on the USDM and North American-designed Honda Accord.

The 3rd gen Inspire was based on the USDM and North American-designed 2nd gen Acura TL.

The 2nd gen Inspire was designed in Japan and was also the first gen Japan-made Acura TL exported to the US.

The 1st gen Inspire was also designed in Japan and was exported to the US as the Acura Vigor.

So the answer to both of your questions is yes and yes. :)

tsx is more luxury while v6 manual accord will be a bit quicker.

But auto vs auto not that big of diference I think.
An auto V6 Accord will be quicker than any TSX, I think. Even if not, auto to auto the V6 will definitely be quicker than the TSX's I4.

no...auto Accord is still alot faster....i think it's faster than TL
it could be possible the v6 is 240hp rated and the TL is 270hp for the 04, 05+ is 255hp rated with the type-s at 270 which is the same as the 04 base model that i own. the only difference at this point is the power to weight ratio. i know the TL's weight is approximately 32xxlbs while the accord is slightly under that being that 90% of cars that have a V6 usually weighs in at 3,000lbs or higher. but then u add the gear ratios i think the TL will win this one.

I thought Accord is gonna be faster because it's lighter
I think the actual quarter mile is pretty close tho
