Official Legend Exclusive: September Issue Honda Tuning: DV8 Not 56k friendly

First I'd like to thank Matt Garvey(mattslegend1) for getting these to me way before they hit the newstands. Not even the editor has gotten them to me yet.

August 2006 is Acura Legend Month!

Show your support of the Legend community and buy the actual issue!


I'm proud to present to you all my HT article:












I think that the Article came out close to perfect. The Photos represent Legends well and with only a few technical errors (228WHP-222LBFT N/A is my current power N/A).

Anyone that owns a Legend and can't take this article as a positive step forward in the community can lick my nuts

WOW!DV8, you da man.

I used to have a 93 6 speed LS coupe (black/black). I loved that car. Sold it to a good friend in 2005. He had it for a month, loved it, and then a 16 year old kid in a brand new 3 series BMW T-boned the Legend. The insurance company considered it a total loss.

I did everything I could think of (short of nitrous) - Dinan Stage II chip, RM Racing intake, Kone Engineering exhaust, and it got me a bit more - flat 6.0 seconds to 60 according to my GTech Pro.

I should have brought it to DV8 for what it really needed - a bigger engine.

I had a 2005 RL (rated at 300 HP) and never gave the car the respect it deserved because of my sense of loss for my Legend. I now have a 2009 TL (280 HP). I think the TL 3.5 would have been perfect for the Legend.

Congratulations on your great work DV8. The only suggestion I have for your car is .... how about some yellow tint for your windows?

Good times.

How about 448WHP and 366lbft on 10PSI for my homies?

Forged internals up next.
