yeah, I know a little about the VW 2.0T direct injections foun on the GTI, GLI, EOS (anyone remember the eos? vw isn't doing a very good job advertising it).
It also has a similar "swirl flap" on the intake manifold. I don't know if it really gives better power end power but I am sure that it gives better emissions. Wether the swirl flap is for emissions or low end power ,who knows, but I am guessing that it would reduce top end power over a tuned intake manifold.
Supposedly, the new accord is going to get this engine for North America. The new accord's body is also revealed at edmunds . com. It looks completely different from the current accord. I don't like the current accord but actually liked the gen before the current accord. I guess I'l have to see it in person first.
ANTA MONICA, Calif. — As the all-new 2008 Honda Accord nears its official launch, spy photographers stumble upon a group of 2008 Honda Accords in the middle of a brochure photo shoot.
As we've seen before, the Accord coupe gets a honeycomb grille, while the sedan's face is trimmed with horizontal bars. Based on the alloy wheels and dual exhaust pipes, both the coupe and sedan pictured are V6 models.
Honda has publicly talked about increased horsepower, improved fuel economy, cylinder deactivation and lower emissions for the V6-powered Accord. Although official specifications have not yet been released, a 3.5-liter V6 with approximately 270 horsepower is expected, as well as the base 180-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine.
What this means to you: This latest group of spy shots proves the new Accord has been worth the wait.
You can't tell from the photos, but I'm guessing it's the north american accord and not the Euro accord. The euro accord is the american acura tsx, it's a little smaller than teh accord. This car looks bigger.
