I've been considering an NSX for a year or two now as a replacement for my well liked, but aging MR2 Turbo. My question regards maintenace. Replacing any engine component on the MR2 is a pain in the arse, which is not atypical of mid engined cars, but I'm handy with a wrench, and can do pretty much anything that doesn't require a lift. Hence my question: Does changing the timing belt/chain on an NSX require removal of the engine, and if so, can the engine be lifted out the top, or must it be dropped? Engine-out maintenace can get steep in cost, and the ability to do major service myself will be a check in the plus column toward getting an NSX.
