I’m not out looking for trouble. My car is bone stock visually and I purposely didn’t change my catback so it sounds stock too. My current mods are (10 AT) :

PRL Front Pipe/ Downpipe
PRL Front Mount Intercooler
Hondata Stage 2

I get roasted by my friends and they have tuned 335i, e46 M3, a plethora of WRX and STIs that are stage 2 and fast, not quick, fast. A stage 2 apr A5 on etune.

what can I expect if I did a roll next to one of them lol - any experience out there?!

People generally leave me alone in the Accord. A guy in a B7 S4 tried one day but there was too much traffic to really mess around. Diesel guys like to try every now and then. I've walked away from a couple coal rolling duramax. I did pull on a z32 300zxTT which surprised me a little because it sure didn't look or sound stock. The only thing I've got is the Ktuner stage 2 on mine. And mines a manual so its not as quick as that 10speed.

I've gapped quite a few STI's and modded GTI's. I stay right next to Scat Pack Challegers and Chargers with ease on my set up. I'm on KTuner and Phearable Stage 3 93 + octane and FBO. Car pulls hard up to 150mph fairly easily so I would consider the 2.0T fast. Not 10 second fast but neither are the cars your going against.

can I expect similar results? Any special setting on your stage 3 tune? Also, did you ever install motor mounts or anything because mine are stock

Yes, I run top and bottom Hasport 62a mounts. I also run the PRL HVI. Phearable Stage 3 tune is a more HP than Hondata Stage 2 but requires quality 93+ octane, it’s a must and not optional.

I got rid of my Hondata and went KTuner. KTuner has more options and better HP and TQ gains. I’ve run Hondata on different platforms too but on the Accord the KTuner is just better.

I don't personally have the stage 3 tune but just check out the specs on phearable.net and you'll see its a whole different animal. Stage 2 on the 2.0t is no slouch though. You'll surprise a lot of people with just that. Also, just realized you're on hondata. The ktuner tune is similar from everything i've ever read or seen but that phearable tune is only available to ktuner

I will also be going custom tuned once my set up is complete. Squeeze every last bit out. Almost there 👍

Think I’ll be okay without the upgraded motor mounts? I am not worried about the extra power being put down as much as I am with reliability. I really don’t get into it as much as I should to justify all this spending lol

Motor mounts are for reliability of your motor and trans. It does help put the power down but also takes away the stress of that torque that comes on fast on the Accord.

All else being equal, if a car is faster than our Accords when both are stock and then we make the same upgrades, it will still be faster... ;)
Not entirely true. Some cars take to mods much better than others. The 2.0T with Flex Fuel, DP and KTuner is a solid low 13 second possibly high 12 second car for around $1500 in parts. Not bad for a family sedan.

I should have said "In general" instead of "All else being equal"... :) And I agree, not bad for a family sedan at all! It wouldn't surprise me if just an intake, stage 2, and DP puts it solidly into the 12's... Two reasons why I haven't gotten Flex Fuel - 1. I'm already having trouble with traction upon acceleration (even after getting wider/stickier tires) and 2. concerns about fuel line deterioration.

Hopefully PRL manages to find a hose compound that works in the research they're doing now. There's gotta be something out there that will hold up.
