Accour Tourer Type-S by FairFaX
Daily Driver Owned by FairFaX

  • Accord Tourer Type-S from 2006, 2.4l after modifications show the power of 232hp / 248Nm. A shorter gearbox improves acceleration and LSD improves traction.
    I bought the Accord in 2015 as a family car and for a certain period of time I did not plan to modify it at all.
    At the beginning, I installed a few facilities, like closing the mirrors, a multimedia system, a reversing camera, then it went downhill and I began to modify the ambitious inside, damping the whole interior, as well as the engine. The engine has not been opened so far, it remains in excellent condition as it left the factory.
    Aim of the project: to remain as a daily slipper, to commute to work, to transport children to kindergarten, shopping or family vacations. The goal is not power peak, but its availability in a wide range of rpms.
