Hello Accord community! In February of 2021, I got myself a 2018 Honda Accord EX-L 1.5T with a CVT transmission. First hand I can say that I don't ever want to stray away from Honda especially the Accord, but I also love my vehicle for it being what it is: very reliable! But that being said I was looking in the market for more powah!!; But ultimately reached the conclusion that a 1.5T with a CVT can only push 250WHP, even then; The transmission will most definitely wear down faster. So if I were to swap the transmission for let's say a 10AT or go Manual as these would be my options; also besides :upper & lower torque rods,intercooler,air intake,fuel injectors upgrades, ECU tuning.... what else would I have to watch out for/ be cautious of in order to let's say swap the tranny and start pushing 340WHP? NOTE: This is for educational purposes/ I wanna learn all the in's & out's of owning/ driving my Honda Accord.
Thank you!

Welcome to the forum... congrats on getting your Gen X Accord.

From what you have listed & want to do to your car you would have probably been/be better off to have gotten a 2.0/AT. With the cost to switch transmission (if it's even possible) alone you will be getting to the price of a 2.0/AT.
