Ever look at a Honda Accord and think, “That would be a lot better with a V8”? You apparently aren’t alone.

Built using a Pontiac GTO as a donor, this LS-powered Honda Accord features custom subframes front and rear, BC Racing coil-overs, brakes from an ’06 GTO, Holley Terminator system, a standalone ECU and a digital dash.

The seller also notes that the car is currently good for some 380 horsepower at the wheel and that “everything works just as it should to make the car street legal.”

Located in Casselberry, Florida, this LS-swapped 1988 Honda Accord is listed at $20,000.

I'm impressed by the amount of room left in the engine bay of an 80s FWD double-wishbone car

That's cool, i actually like it.  But I think i'd like the 06 GTO they cannibalized to build it better.  No aircon in Florida is a dealbreaker for me..laugh

Built by a guy that goes by BodeVision on the Youtube machine, it's a nice build.  He's a pretty talented body and paint guy.

That first photo gives me serious early-'90s Mustang GT vibes.

As a former owner of an Accord of that generation.... I have no words. It's amazing.
