Default What are Performance upgrade options for 2018 3.5l accord

I have a 2018 3.5l v6 accord. I have added a cold air intake and would like to continue to increase the performance. I am wondering what my options are for a next step(s). I have always worked on my cars but I haven’t ventured into increased performance. I was hoping to get some suggestions shy of a turbo unless that truly should be where I go next. I would also be interested in brand recommendations. Ty

For a 2018 Accord it's likely going to be difficult finding good performance pieces that are designed specifically for it. Brand new generation, and not many people modify Accords in the first place. Also, I wasn't aware they were still using the J35 engine in the new Accords? Are you sure it's a 2018?

My suggestion would be to consider something "simple" yet rewarding, like some light custom exhaust work. You could get a nice sound, maybe gain just a few ponies, but still drastically change the driving experience. Just do some high flow cats and mufflers, something like that.

Not sure if they make NA headers that would fit the J35 in the Accord.

OP, I am not sure what market you hail from, but here in the US... no 2018 Accord is available in a V6. Engine options are 1.5L and 2.0L turbocharged four cylinders. If your car is earlier and the year is a typo, "headers" as ChanceEG suggested would actually be more like downpipes because the cylinder heads have a single discharge port on the exhaust side. The cat-delete downpipes would be available through RV6, but you would also need a tuning solution to turn out the codes for the missing cats.

Evidently I typed 2018 instead of 2017. It is a 2017 3.5L exhaust mods are not going to increase the performance much, I know. I was hoping for other options I would think that enginee could be milked for more power. Thanks for your feedback. What about a turbo, any rec on a brand/supplier? What are the pros and cons? Really appreciate any thoughts...
