This Equipment is Top Notch .. Drilled Forged Rods - Oil Pressurized Piston Cooling .

I have seen this on Exotic Motors for some time , some times called Piston Squirt's or Crank Cups for Splashing under side of Pistons ..
Rod Drilling usually only for Race set ups 500Hp Special Builds ..

I don't see any other way for Honda to Flow Oil - has to be Pressurized . . in order to work at all Loading angles ..
High Speed RPM's - Plus - be Effective in Cooling .. :)

I have other Likes about the Accord - Really Dig the Dash Layout - with the Nice White with Green Colors in the Gauge Area , and the Fact that these are
Gauges Not Digital Read Outs , Analog are Faster just to Sweep Past with the eye.

Suspension Modes Very Sweet , Love the Low Growl of the Motor with Mild Throttle Tip in ..

I like that the Accord has a detuned version of the Type R motor mated to a 10spd automatic. It has all the makings of a nice little sleeper which is kinda my thing.

It might seem like a nice thing Honda did for us but its quite the opposite.

Car makers always look to use the same powertrains as much as they can, what Honda did here is a classic example of that.

Of course, GM, Ford and Dodge have been doing that for years. The Accord doesn't need a model specific powertrain...In my opinion, this just devalues the Type R a bit. A little tuning and a downpipe and the 10spd 2.0T Accord will walk all over the Type R...You're simply not going to be able to out shift the 10spd. Around a road course it'll be a different situation, but who is going to take this car around a track?

I'm going to Road America on Oct 5th for a Track Day. We will see how it does!

Nice! I was just up there for the IMSA races. Have fun! Are you swapping out your pads and brake fluid?

They did Many Hot Laps on Honda that was Not the Freshest , But Yeah Dot 4 at Least for an Track Duty ..
Over Cooking the Tires didn't Help any .. You have to have some Cool Down Laps in between ..
