Most of you know that, for personal reasons, I no longer participate in this forum. I would hate for you to think, however, that I am not still very active in the NSX community. I have been corresponding on a regular basis with most of the NSX owners with heavily modified cars (and the wonderful Mark B. who is working to make the challenge of building a high hp NSX much less challenging) and invite any of you with questions about internal engine mods, forced induction, engine management, tranny mods, or whatever to feel free to contact me directly at any time with any questions. I would not hold myself up as an expert, but I have been through most of the modifications that can be done to an NSX and would be happy to share what I know with any of you.

Also, I think I have checked out every NSX for sale in central TX over the past year or so and I am happy to continue to do so if anyone is interested in a car for sale in this area.

For those of you who are not on the Tech List and have not seen my posts there, here is a list of some of the items now available to help you if you decide to build a high hp motor:

ARP stud kit (full set, incld. mains, heads, rods, etc.)
SCE copper head gaskets (both 3.0L and 3.2L)
Crower NSX turbo cams
CV joints (The Drive Shaft Shop)
Darton siamese style cylinder liners (thanks to Gerry)

I am still trying to figure out adjustable cam gears, and I will share that info when I do. My goal is to make all of the standard mods available to the rest of the performance world available to NSX owners.

The quest for hp continues………….

David,
I don’t know the background, but it is a big loss not having your presence on this website. This site has a lot of people that have knowledge in specific areas. Then there are the “experts” that have obtained expertise by doing more than the typical modifications and done so in a systematic and analytic manner. You seem to have run a lot of parts through your engine bay!!

I always enjoyed your posts. They were helpful, well thought out, and never condescending. When scanning through the replies to a particular post, I always stop and read those relies from people like you, Lud, Mark Basch, and a few others because it is always worth the time to read your thoughts and perspectives. It is good to hear you are still active pushing the envelope with the NSX.

Regards,
Roy Ebert

David,

I too had worried that the "Boost-Mobile" had blown one too many parts!! I think you have to realize that there are many different personalities on this board, and not all of us are going to get along. I also agree with Lud that the board is for info, and not for nitpicking. We are all grown ups here, more than almost any other site on the web, and should act as such. If someone shows less than that level of conduct, then they should be ignored, and the rest of us continue with the task at had, which is to make the best car in the world even better, and make those of us who are new to this endeavor even smarter by the experience of those who have done it before. Hope to see you here more often.

David:

It's good to see a post from you - your participation in the forum is ***sorely*** missed by all.

I hope this finds you well and am glad to learn that you remain happily in pursuit of NSX HP.

Best,

Hi David. Thanks for the generous offer of providing email info. Since your empirical knowledge of high HP NSX engines is much broader and deeper than most, might I suggest that you capture that knowledge in a writeup for the FAQ? There's certainly no shortage interest!!! This might also save you the trouble of typing duplicate replies to the innumerable emails you'll probably get. Anyway, hope you and yours are well. --twc

I agree. I think a detailed "David's Quest for HP" faq is in order here. I believe all of us could benefit from a detailed lay out of everything you have learned and are planning to experiment with. Unfortunately, to much information slips through the cracks in the forums, and is only found if intentionally searched for. On more than several occasions, I have learned of valuable ways of improving my NSX only lose that information to the increasing amount of BS and chit chat that flows through these forums. Not to say that the forums should not condone chit chat, but more that the valuable information that fellas such as David here provides may need to be preserved in a more permanant and always-viewable location.

Is there an archive of the Tech List on the web somewhere? My websearch yielded nothing.

The archive for the Tech List only covers the period since the list was moved to a new server in early December. Posts prior to that point are not available on an archive, AFAIK.

I second Roy's thoughts. You're a valued commodity in the NSX community and I totally understand your level of public participation. Perhaps a column in NSX Driver? I'm positive Andy would love you for that.

Hi David,

Have you been able to try out the Crower cams? What are the specs compared to stock? How substantial an improvement do you think they'll make over the stock cams? How much do they cost?

I'm looking forward to you getting your beast back on the road..
