This is an inspiring project. I'd love to see it in person sometime. Good stuff.
The ITB's look sweet.
[QUOTE=NA1/2-R GT;1390547]Here goes
I've been waiting for 4+ years for this day.
After witnessing in person of how awesome SOS' NSX with ITBs set up at NSXPO in Vegas, I have decided to pull the last string to modify my engine.
Met up with NA1/2-R GT yesterday at the Kart track. We went for a quick spin in the X. The car is perfect: it pulls hard, and it corners strong and flat. Even though my Camaro has an auto-cross suspension on it, by comparison, it might as well be an aircraft carrier. The Type-R suspension is taut for sure, but it's no more harsh on the bumps than my car, yet it facilitates so much more aggressiveness.
As for the speed, he claimed that he was below 300 rwhp, which is right in the same neighborhood as my car, but the NSX feels so much faster (possibly an attribute of making it's power at the top). My car starts off with a serious jump but the g-forces plateau or taper off as the rpm climbs. With the NSX, it's the opposite: the gs increase as the tach climbs, which, combined with the rising exhaust note and engine sounds, creates an exhilarating sensation of speed and urgency.
I have yet to actually drive one, however, even being on the passenger side, it's apparent that from a thrill-of-the-drive perspective, there might not be a better car in the world (especially considering what is available to the NSX in the aftermarket).
My car is in Honda Tuning August issue.
Congrats man! Well deserved.
LOL why is the Civic on the cover instead of your car, that editor needs to get fired.

RSX Type S ==> CSX ==> NSX?
I need to pick up a copy before they run out
Keep Calm and Chive On!
Considering how much difference they make to the feel of a stock NSX, it would be insane. He mentioned to me that he wants to stroke it to 3.2 (not sure why he wouldn't go higher, especially considering what we've seen with the 3.6), and get high comp pistons. It'll be an unbeatable experience so far as I can imagine once he gets those things done.
If you don't mind me asking...how much did install, and tuning cost you?
Any word on the airbox. I take it these would never pass emission!?
Seen this car in Person @ forum Fest but did not know who the owner was. Amazing Car.
Sorry to jut pop in on this thread. Seems like I missed a really great build. Awesome car and I am completely jealous of your ITBs!
I need to finally put my car in the garage and keep it there until my "build" is done.
