After agonizing for the past year I've come to the conclusion (for now) to list the car and see where it goes. Been busy with life and haven't had much time to drive the car as I used to, these cars are meant to be enjoyed and driven, not wasting away as a garage queen. Not interested in parting the car out and no rush to sell, my dream buyer is another fellow nsx enthusiast that has been searching for this exact build.
Please test drive/inspect as many NSXs as you can before contacting me. Do your due diligence by researching the modifications that I have done on the car, such as the suspension, brakes, etc. This will allow you to better compare things such as the ride/build quality, interior noise(lack of) and engine response when you see the car in person. Car is in great condition but because of the high mileage it does have imperfections although hard to see in pictures(chips in lower front bumper, tiny rock scratches in front window, etc.)

MAINTENANCE HISTORY & DO YOU HAVE DOCUMENTATION?
Full Documentation of all maintenance from Original owner to current in large black binder. A lot of preventative maintenance also done such as new aluminum radiator, all hoses replaced (science of speed hose kit), EGR valve, Main Relay, O2 sensor, Coil Packs, Spark plugs, catalytic convertors, cv boots, thermostat, etc.. All documented with receipts.
Car has passed smog every year, which is no easy task if you're following the smog thread on prime. Last major service done at 105k miles, timing belt, water pump, belt adjuster, valve cover gaskets, various gaskets and VTEC O-rings. Master and Slave Clutch Cylinders replaced at 147k miles, prior owner replaced engine cam plugs and various other maintenance all documented. I've taken every precaution to make sure the nsx is in top running condition since it was driven often.
All known common NSX issues have been addressed and taken care of, such as climate control system being rebuilt by Brian at NSXe-repair.com (all climate control units fail over time), also had him repair the stock stereo system and speakers but they still all fail eventually so hence upgrading to the aftermarket system. I will include the stock head unit as well as two pairs of speakers if buyer wants. The climate control unit has also been taken apart by me and the displays cleaned and the orange clear lens polished so all the numbers are crystal clear and better than new.
All service has been up to date and done at regular intervals at MD automotive in Westminister Ca by only their head mechanic (formerly Jackson Racing before they moved back north). Other various work done at Autowave in Huntington Beach and Evasive Motorsports, all work documented of course. Transmission and oil changed less than 200 miles ago. Have always used Honda OEM filters and recently switched to Denso which has the identical larger sized oil filter that honda discontinued making. Always used mobil-1 synthetic until they changed they switched their base Group oil source, have been using Eneos 0W-50 since then and engine is incredibly smooth and responsive.
Not in Snap Ring Range
Although the mileage is over 150k, 90% of it is from fwy miles driving from Corona to Orange or LA county on the weekends when there is no traffic. Usually for dinner on weekends, cruise along the beach, shopping, car meets or movies. Never parked by Valet as I don't trust them and have always taken the time to wait for a nice openly visible parking spot close to the front, safe from vandalism.
I also have many miscellaneous and special NSX documents such as original window sticker, funny drawings from dealer on original fax to owner, pre-inspection checklist, original acura/bose tape cassette demonstration, copy of class action lawsuit against american honda about premature wear of tires, magazine and newspaper clippings, just on and on. The original and previous owner kept meticulous documentation of the car so I did as well.
List of Modifications and improvements:
Project Mu 2 piece Billet 4 piston brakes with 355mm rotors and Project Mu Teflon Coated Stainless Mesh Brake Lines. The Brake Calipers are cut from a single block of aluminum, you can see the very sharp and clean edges in the picture album, the paint is then anodized to bond with the aluminum for a much stronger finish than if it was painted normally.
MSRP is over $5k USD, according to original owner (Owner of DC SPORTS), mackin industries (seller) said this was the only set in the USA with the 355 rotors, the rest were 332 or 345. These brakes are two piece and larger than Brembo GTs.
Volk CE28 18/19 Rims Gold
Front Rims +30 offset barely clears the huge brakes, front fenders needed to be rolled due to wider wheels, front suspension was dissembled, spring and bump stop removed, reassembled and installed on car. Suspension then cycled throughout it's entire range of travel with same wheel/tire in order to create clearance as needed precisely where it is needed and no more. This allows both the safest and best quality outcome. More travel than the stock suspension is used so that the car handles better by being within the sweet spot of the many additional adjustments the new suspension affords. Fender liners are also retained which is harder to do, all work carefully done by professionals at Mueller racing in Southern California
Detailed pics of Wheels and Brakes Setup:
JRZ RS Coilover Suspension (parent company of Moton, a step above KW suspensions). If you do research on JRZ you will know that they are one of the best if not the best suspension systems available if you want the best in ride quality AND performance.
Shine/route ks front spoiler
50w Front Headlight HID with micro ballast 6,000K white in color with a purple tinge.
Downforce intake scoop for driver side air vent, funnels air directly into the intake box inside

Route-ks Rare front turn signal covers, made of polyurethane and extremely durable. i believe they're the only set in the states, i've never seen them on any other nsx or in pics. Blodi's nsx turn signal covers are based off these as i sent him my originals, but those covers are made from acrylic and not polyurethane. the mounting system on the replicas do not mount them as flush or tight as the route-ks with their metal brackets, i've included pictures in the gallery.
JDM NSX foglights installed with 3,000K HID h3 bulbs
comptech ceramic coated headers with titanium wrap
ARC Induction Box - Literally purchased the last new ARC induction box forgotten and sitting in a warehouse from Dali Racing. paid almost double the brand new price as it had been years since ARC had stopped production of these. Still have the original box and documentation, in excellent condition.
seibon type r rear spoiler
Seibon Carbon Fiber Hood - bought three hoods and sold the others to find one with the best fit. hood sits absolutely flush with the front bumper and extremely tight.
Carbon Fiber Headlight Covers
JDM Honda NSX dark taillights, brand new set, actually had two, one was modified with JGTC Mugen LED Panels as shown in some pictures below, now i've installed a second set of new JDM tail lights high output CREE led stock replacement bulbs instead. This retains the stock look but with the higher LED bulb performance and brightness.

replica nsx type-r mesh engine cover, also have jdm type r engine cover latch mechanism that i never installed, have to drill into aluminum but i decided not to in case i wanted to return to stock. original stock engine cover included as well.
retractable antenna replaced with small modern stub type antenna (shark 2)
purchased jdm master window switch so car as "auto up" ability for driver side window. back in days when
acura was sold this feature was not made available in the states for safety reasons and honda's fear of being sued.
Metal strip alongside inside edge of window have been removed and polished (yes this amount of detail was put into the car as i planned on keeping it forever)
replaced leather bolster panel underneath dash due to small scratches from previous owners and loose trim around ignition keyhole. this panel gets worn out easily if the owner is not careful when putting key in ignition, keys will scratch the circular piece that surrounds the ignition and cause marks, same goes with the leather panel as it has chance to get wear marks from driver wearing jeans or having a large keyring full of keys rubbing against it. I keep the nsx key and remote together on a separate ring to prevent this.
Center Gauge cluster removed and cleaned completely, clear plastic cover polished from inside/outside to remove any fine scratches so gauges are now crystal clear almost invisible.
Science of speed Billet Aluminum interior Door handles installed
