Owner: Istas
Honda: 2005 Honda Accord EX
Displacement: 2.4 L
Fuel type: gasoline
Transmission: automatic
Curb weight: 3203 lbs
Coefficient of drag: 0.3
Frontal area: 23.8 sq.ft.
Instrumentation: ScanGauge
Description: The automatic may not be ideal for efficiency, but it is geared fairly tall for a 4-cylinder (2000 rpm gives about 62mph, 65 with the higher profile tires), and programmed to keep it in as high a gear as possible, so it performs quite admirably. It even downshifts pretty aggressively when braking hard downhill, even near highway speeds.
Build Thread: Accord aero mods, 4.25% increase, more to come
Current Mods: -short airdam
-engine undertray
-rear wheel skirts
-upper grill block
-lower grill partial block
-sealed gaps around headlights and between quarter panels and bumper with silicone sealant
-radiator fan indicator light
-smooth pizza-pan hubcaps
-higher profile tires for 5% taller gearing
-side mirror delete -2.5% frontal area

Nut behind wheel adjusted, if that counts.

Planned Mods: Though I still have it, I've lost interest in modding this car more since I've gotten the holy grail; a first-gen manual Insight.
