2002 NSX preview

Here is a link to Popular Mechanics 2002 NSX preview.

Sounds pretty good, but I am VERY dissapointed that Acura is not boosting the HP at all! What are they afraid of???? I think this is a mistake considering porsche just boosted the 911 to 320 HP.

Anyway, have a look.

NetViper -= 100% Stock EBP 2000 Civic Si =- Still looking to get an NSX, but at least I can live life at 8,000 RPM!

I suspect Honda couldn't extract anymore out of the current design without significant mods.

Just consider what we need to do to grab an extra 30 hp.

There's not much more to be had without major revs. I guess they could implement an i-VTEC system for the 3.2, but what else could they do with the current engine? They can't get more displacement with the current block.

I think they should put their resources in the next gen, hopefully a V8.
