I assume that the 550HP in the race car is driven by the rules / restrictor plate and not any limit on what power they can make with the stock engine.
I think a tune and perhaps exhaust could boost Max HP from the ICE-- and that would show up on the dyno and 1/4 mile trap speeds (and, as you suggest, races from a roll). But I think it would "feel" faster (and *be* faster around the racetrack) if it also had even more low-end EV grunt.
In "Track Mode," I think the programming is way too conservative for EV assist (presumably due to design requirement of consistency under all scenarios). Battery level RARELY dips below 50% charge. If cooling/thermal allows it, I'd like to see a much more aggressively discharge/charge envelope. At the end of the main straight, I don't need 50% of the battery in reserve. Car should be more aggressive.[/QUOTE
100% agree with you. I tried launch control the other night. This car pulls hard. it needs more Engine power after that
We already have filters made, high air flow dry foam filters.Chris said the same thing. He recommended a dry filter. Who makes a dry high flow filter?

it's wise for customers to understand how tests are performed and if they were done with best practices to ensure accurate results of performance losses or gains.
Check out the new catalog for 2017 NSX:
Downpipes, exhaust, charge tubes, with other power modifications in development. Check out this write up about testing procedures:
Here's an important point:
The results speak to the complexity of the new NSX powertrain and the requirements for accurate testing controls for reliable results. With how easy the 2017 NSX is to manipulate performance numbers - it's wise for customers to understand how tests are performed and if they were done with best practices to ensure accurate results of performance losses or gains. With out properly cooling the NSX, monitoring engine sensors, and monitoring electric motor output - performance gains from adding aftermarket parts can not be accurately reported.
