No worries! Like I was saying, it's no joke, no bs, real deal, SlickFab knows his stuff. As I was listing, the reason you'll want to get an LSD and as many other handling improvements is to wrangle in and effectively harness that kind of power, especially in a front drive road car.

Oh, I almost forgot, as a side note on weight reduction, the '09-'14 TSX V6 also has the 6 speed manual as an optional transmission, which is an upgrade to your Accord 6 speed transmission.

How? You might ask.... here's the kicker, better gear ratios for performance, and.... a magnesium alloy transmission case which is about ~9-10 pounds lighter than the Accord transmission case .... and ..... it already comes factory with an LSD! Booyah! Weight reduction, check. Performance gear ratios, check. LSD, check.

Yeah, it's probably the most cost effective route. I'm not sure of the power holding capacity of the TSX transmission, so it might still need internal reinforcements, such as a heavier duty LSD, just a thought. And yes, the TSX and Accord bellhousings are identical, so yeah, it will bolt up.

UPDATE:Finally found out what happened to GearheadJ35Y. He got in a bad accident with a mustang he was racing and the accord was totaled, mustang fishtailed into him. He deleted his channel for that reason but he did not get arrested or anything like that. (oops, my bad!) He ended up making 350 WHP on a 75 shot. Now he has a manual accord.

Sorry OP for hijacking the thread but hopefully that clears everything.

... okay... rather peculiar of you to chime in on my response to the OP, especially in the manner you did.

Was your quoting my reply to the OP an attempt at instigation by sounding snarky and condescending?

TF? What made you think I was sounding snarky? I was just saying something positive about him.

called him 3 xs two days in a row.

I guess he's on vacation.

I'm a spontaneous kinda guy, and I took that as a sign. So I decided to spend the money on my house. Starting with a natural gas fireplace and 2 Eames chairs. The beginning of my man cave.

Well I called SlickFab 2-3 times a day 3 days in a row. left a message stating I was very interested in the full set up and wanted to know more details before I pull the trigger. NO RESPONSE

It says on their website 24/7 tech support so you would think they are available to some degree.

I took that as a sign and won't be doing the turbo anymore. Clutchmasters aluminum flywheel and fx250 SM clutch are being done next week! That will help put a smile on my face. Heck, I always am thrilled to drive my accord.
