Your Projects: Turning a Honda Accord Into a Race Car

What do you do with your daily driver V6 Honda Accord after getting a promotion and a work vehicle? If you are user Number1Gaza, you turn it into a race car.

The original plan was to add lightness while upgrading the handling using OEM parts from the Accord's many relatives.

That plan worked, too, until an inspection of the block revealed that the rings in one of the cylinders had gone bad.

Undeterred, Number1Gaza picked up a V6 from an Acura TL and swapped it in with the help of a buddy and some percussive maintenance.

Now that the engine is in place, Number1Gaza is continuing to upgrade pretty much every stock item with a more track-ready part.
