For those who was wondering how 2002 have more horse power............................

To pump more power from the 3.5-liter V-6, Honda borrowed the Acura MDX's larger-diameter, two-stage intake system and freer-flowing exhaust to reduce resistance. The MDX's three-rocker VTEC variable valve timing and lift system extends and enhances the engine's range, and a bigger-bore throttle body, larger-diameter valves, and an increased compression ratio (from 9.4:1 to 10.0:1) do their part to bump horsepower from 210 to 240 at 5500 rpm and boost torque from 229 to 242 pound-feet at 4500 rpm. That's the same power and three fewer pound-feet on regular fuel than the MDX puts out drinking premium.
