You’ve lost it lol... 40 RPM isn’t worth it... now if you already had to replace the synchros, maybe, but I’d still leave well enough alone...

If you had a rsx or a si 5 speed and was doing the 6speed conversion, then sure, why not.

However, if you already have the tsx 6th (aka accord 5th) the 0.659 vs 0.647 is completely negligible .

Not to to bring up ROI, but $200 could build you a full belly pan!

Thanks. When Ecomodder tells you not to do an ecomod, it's probably a good idea not to.

If you do purchase the 0.647 I'll send you some $ for the tsx 6th! If that helps lol

So I ordered the gear.

Also, finished installing my sound-deadening. WOW, what a difference. First test drive, I can only liken it to how everything gets very quiet when your ears need to pop. Bass response from the speakers in the doors also greatly improved.






Older picture, there's even more dampening in the hatch area now:




Replaced the noisy ~40mm fan in the Meanwell power supply with two silent 92mm fans:




Also, I averaged ~129mpg on the way back from the recycling center, where I was donating aluminum.

Ecky, you are really pushing me to make me want to make my insight better! I may have to add sound deadening to the list of things to do.... With as much driving as I do, it would probably help tremendously.

It's one of those mods with zero direct ROI, but certainly makes the car more pleasant to drive.

More progress in the back:






Also, cut off 1/3 of a coil from my springs, to lower the rear which came up almost an inch and a half with the removal of the IMA system. I think I need to take another 1/3 of a coil off.
