Unlike many NSX owners, I'm very happy with the power from the stock NSX. I've found that the stock NSX is a better learning tool, as you succeed by smooth driving without the extra power to pull you out if you mess up. When I finally considered adding more power, I wanted a solution that delivered linear power above all else. NA power is nice, however, I didn't feel that the expense required for building up a stock motor was worth it, especially due to the usable power envelope shifting to the top end. I drove a couple turbo'ed cars (although I have not driven the Larry turbo) and found that despite the nicety of the usable low-end torque, the car still behaved like a turbo, with a mass of power defined like black and white as the turbo came online. This negated by appreciation of the NSX. Lightweight and linear power delivery. I've driven several supercharged equiped cars including Comptech's standard and 9psi kit. However, when I drove the BaschBoost car, I knew it was the solution I was looking for. If you compare the power curves of the BaschBoost and stock NSX, you'll see what I mean. The graphs look identical on the stand point of linear power delivery. The BaschBoost does make the NSX into something it is not. Instead, it gives you an NSX with the what feels like a larger engine with the same power delivery characteristics. Just more ;-)
I've promised myself to get into karting to continue to grow my driving abilities. Because now on the track, I have that extra power (all 380 RWHP of it) to get me out of a corner that I maybe over braked for, or lost speed on by approaching wrong. I've never missed driving my car more than I have now with the BaschBoost.
