I haven't seen anybody who does. I know the inlet from the accord to the civic is different so its not like you can get one for a civic either. the aftermarket is a lot bigger for the civic 1.5 and accord 2.0 unfortunately

From my understanding the 1.5t CVT, as with most CVT transmissions, is the weak link. It can't barely handle and aftermarket flash and exhaust upgrade without issues so this is probably why you do not see many tuners investing much time development parts for the platform.

I have noticed that. I bought the car new a few years back with intentions of doing nothing more than lowering it and putting some wheels on. I didn’t care about the motor back then because I have an built s2000 when I want to go fast. Now one mod on the accord leads to another and then leads to another. Kind of like tattoos. Haha. Don’t plan on racing the accord as it’s just a cruiser so I’m not worried about the BS cvt tranny that’s in it. Just enjoy the moding process. Hopefully more parts will start to pop up.

The CVT doesn't do well under repeated abuse, but not many cars do. There are a ton of civic guys running FBO and tunes on their 1.5/cvt's. Just depends how you treat the cars. The guys who are pedal to the metal at every light are the ones with problems. would i prefer a true auto if i didn't have a manual myself? sure, but the cvt isn't as bad as some people say it is. now that being said i wouldn't be trying to tune a 350whp monster out of it.
