Awesome thread, looking forward to your progress
2004 Silverstone/Onyx - T000088
Nice write up. I'm a big fan of pcars having owned one (996). I'm currently working my e46 M3 to get ready for more serious track days. I'm hoping to pick up a NSX this fall/winter.
Btw, My clutch was indeed the culprit. A new Comptech clutch is going in along with some other Comptech bits My budget just got "BLOWN" to kingdom-kome

and one of the coolest and most sucessful independant racers of out car IMO...
hats off to rob yet again.
Leavin tire marks on the freeway...
Wish I could make the 05/11 Speed Ventures track day at Infineon but my car will still be in pieces. Also had to cancel my 05/17 HOD track day at Infineon but I am registered for the 05/25 Speed Ventures track day at Infineon Raceway.
Here's what we're working on presently:
Comptech Powergrip 1 Performance Clutch Package
Comptech 2.3L SuperCharger
Accusump Oil Accumulator
Fender Mounted Oil Cooler
No guarantees it will be done in time but we're hellbent to make the 25th.
Pics to come.
1K2GO, great post and pictures!
Also coming from the Porsche world (20+ years) and road racing, it was a revelation to experience a NSX on-track at 10/10ths.

Although supercharging is not my first choice, it is the simplest and most cost effective means to my objective of breaking the hearts of all those high dollar, late model super cars. Stay tuned...

I would love to see Shad's version of a fender mounted oil cooler. Also will you be running a cooling solution for the 2.3l supercharger?
I might make the July 1 laguna seca speedventures. If you'll be there I'd love to say hello and see the car!
Great post I read so far. Can't wait for next video...
Problem with Laguna is my car is loud and they have no sense of humor.
Can you come up to Sears on the 25th?
Shad and I both subscribe to the principal of KISS (keep it simple stupid).
The cooler is an Earls, very simple and straight forward. I have had many discussions with Shad about intercoolers, aftercoolers, o2/Meth and every other known and unknown method of keeping IT's in check. We have decided to keep it simple, high volume (2.3L SC), low boost (-10psi). No coolers, misters or injectors of any kind. A simple, conservative approach.
My discussions with Shad about peak HP usually go something like this:
Shad: "Oh, you'll have plenty of power"
Me: I'm not interested in peak hp on my first lap, I'm much more interested in knowing what this motor has on tap on lap 10 when I've got that pesky (fill in the blank) in my cross hairs and I'm setting him up for the pass..."
That's whats nice about Shad, he's built hundreds of these kits including some world beaters, like Kip Olson's, who happens to hold the lap record at Infineon btw. We're not reinventing the wheel here and I don't need 600whp to be competitive..
How much did that undertray cost if you dont mind me asking? Do you every do any track days down south? Looking for another NSX to roll with
I started racing in SoCal and built my 911 for RIR (Riverside International Raceway). Living in NorCal now, I am very fortunate to have 3 world class road courses all within 2hrs drive, Infineon, Laguna & Thunder Hill. Willow Springs is a 6hr haul so its not very practical aside from the fact that it was never one of my favorite tracks. Now if they didn't turn Riverside into a shopping mall I probably would have never moved North.
So they did you a favor is what your saying. I use to live in San Jose before the military but never drove the car on the track... I really regret it now.
this thread is awesome, I love it.

Here's your basic $500,000.00 track tool - Ferrari 458 Italia
Rumored to have between 600 & 700whp
Full cage, air jacks, P-Zeros etc etc.
The other red 458 is his daily driver
We were back out at Infineon/Sears Point yesterday (05/25) for the Speedventures/Trackmasters event. Great turnout with lots of high hp, well prepped track cars including Vettes, Vipers, Lotus, Ferraris, M3s, even a Panoz and a ton of Porsches as usual. We were not able to get the CTSC installed in time but we did get the CT powergrip clutch, fender mounted oil cooler, Accusump, reinforced front splitter/undertray and 'bigass' wing intime. The car ran fantastic and although we were way down on power, we were still able hold our own against most of the big dogs. Hopefully next time they see us, we will have something extra for them...
Accusump (tucked in right rear fender well)
Splitter 1.1 (rob proofed)
awesome with a heavy mix of win............
