By looking at various threads I see only two options in INDIA for major gains.

1. The safest option is to upgrade to a more powerful car.
2. Swaping the engine is a much safer option than turbo charging.

From what i know from Arush is that he has put in 84MM pistons & bored out your 2.0 ltr motor from stock 80mm.

The increase in displacement will not be more than 2.2Ltr according to me unless you change the stroke as well.

So from what you say, and I respect what you are saying. Accordmasters was not even getting the "promised" 2.5Lts engine ????

More is being unvieled as time goes by ! Holy Moly !!

dude really tried but you know now it has to be done because before it was being started we were selling it and i asked to do it up in a 4 month time as i was promised .... but now hes like i guess that guy wasnt capable of doing it and i ran out of time that i had promised him so thanks to people i wasn't able to achieve a target and now i have to sell as i had promised him that i would not say anything if i am not able to get it running and in a better condition .

Sad, definately a shocking news, I had been following this thread silently and used to browse it regularly hoping that one fine day accordmasters may post a good news before us. I am so dissappointed that it wasn't to be.
Accord V6 is a great car no doubt, and I really do not want to offend any Accord owners/lovers but in my opinion the new accord doesn't have even half the charm of the lovely old BMW.
How I sincerely hope that you still keep the car and very soon manage to restore it to glory. Needless to say Autopshyche turned out to be quite a let down although his posts here portray that he is good with PR (atleast he is apologetic). Still, its a pity he could not complete the job, let alone complete the job on time.

I really plead that you do not sell the car and sooner or later get it back to the condition it deserves to be in.

Kindest Regards.

Arjun before you sell the car get it back to stock from BMW themselves. I believe the M20b25 that you have is still unmolested. In that case plop that in there and let her run. In that case you have 2 options:

1) Run her as a stock 2.5L with 170 odd horses
2) Sell her in stock reliable form

Sorry to hear about your situation. But I would like to be kept in the loop if you plan on selling the E34 and she's back to "stock" reliable form...[Would like to toss my bid in there]

**Remember there is a different pride in owning a vintage. It doesn't have to be fast or even look as good as some of the new cars, but what it does have, PURE CHARM**

Sad to hear that.
I too would have been happy with the older E than an Accord.

How about running it as DocG has mentioned.
