Supercharging or Turbocharging a accord V6???

I have a 98 accrd V6 4dr and am looking to turbo or supercharge it. Now all I can find for this car is a comptech supercharger, no turbochargers or anything. I am also wondering where I could get a piggy back computer so I can change my fuel/air ratio myself. If you have any idea about this stuff please let me know! thanks again!

You can always custom a turbo if you really are set on it, otherwise your only hope is the Comptech Supercharger. For piggy-back computers, AEM EMS, Unichip, Greddy E-Manage, and the APEX-i V-AFC will allow you to change your air/fuel ratio. However you do not want to do this yourself without the help of a dynojet.

also when going the route of forced induction on the accord v6 you have to take into consideration the relatively weak automatic transmission. the comptech s/c runs a low boost level to help with the reliability of the trans. if you do a custom turbo you will have to also keep boost low unless you "bulletproof" your transmission. a plus side to the s/c is that you get full boost at low rpm and this translates into much needed tq and hp in the low/mid range as well as a nice increase at the top. with a turbo the boost has to build up, this usually means that you dont see it until the mid/high range, but normally larger peak gains can be achieved by going the route of turbo. it is your decision and you can do anything you want to a car as long as you have the cash.

good luck to you sir.

Unless you really need to have more low end (<3k RPM) power, go for a turbo. It has MUCH more power potential than an SC.

For the costs of custom turboing your AV6, you can buy yourself a couple of Comptech Supercharger kits. You'll need a bunch of custom fabricated parts, check out av6.com and do a search on LI Accord's Accord.
