:biggrin: I have just had Acura of Brookfield complete the installation of the Science of Speed Stage 2 kit(Cams, valve springs, ported intake manifold) along the short gear and type R final drive. Combine that with the SOS speed chip, throttle body and Taitec headers, test pipe, and exhaust and the car is absolutely amazing. Throttle response? Awesome! Torque? Awesome! Acceleration? Awesome!

Seriously it is like driving a whole new car, and the sound coming out of that car is absolutely sick! :eek:

I recommend this to anyone who is looking to seriously beef up your NSX's performance.
 
Cool mods, did you consider the comptech 4:55 gears? I am going to do either 4:55 or type rs w/shorties....
 
Man, that sounds sweet. I've been toying around with the idea of upgrading. I really like NA power over FI. The NSX could definately use a bit more "umph" when you're not in the exact right gear at the exact RPM... but when its in the sweet spot its totally awesome - I just want a bigger sweet spot. :biggrin:
 
Many congrats on your mods :smile:
I envy you.
Can you give us some more specific info (if you have any that is). Like what your RWHP is no, any other figures.
And, of course, pictures !!
 
I certainly plan to have it dynoed sometime soon. If you take the range of rated horsepower improvement I should be at around 340-350 at the crank, so about 295 to 300 at the tire.

I'll post when I have the exact numbers.
 
I can't wait to hear it.

From what I have seen from other sources, I would expect somewhere in the area of 285-295 rwhp, but it could certainly be more.

You will have to take that car down to Great Lakes and see what she runs in the quarter.

I am glad someone I know has this kit, so I can compare it to my relatively stock car (although a few mods since last fall) and to a CTSC before I take the plunge . . .

Let me know if you need a dyno facility. There is a guy off of Hubertus Rd. who dyno'd a friend's NSX recently.

Congrats jjeray! Honestly I am very tempted to go NA route. Even if expensive I dream about the Toda NA mods...

Do you plan to go as far as Stage 3?


A few questions, what is the best considering the 3,0L NSX engine inherent geometry and specs: a stroker kit ( like the Toda 3,5 L kit ) or increasing its bore to 3,3 L ( like the SOS stage 3 )?

what kind of power increase can we expect from a full SOS stage 3 upgrade ( with all the related accessories to get the most of it...like HE ) and also for this upgrade from Toda:

Individual Throttle Bodies
Billet Camshafts or VTEC Killer Camshafts
Campulleys
Valve Springs
Connecting Rods
Pistons
Crankshaft
Oil Pump Gear
High Power Timing Belt
Lightweight Flywheel

( with all the related accessories to get the most of it...like HE )



I am fascinated by the NA route...and maybe willing to spend a lot of $$$.

I too can't wait to hear it! Now we need to get you to come and play with us at RA!!!!! Hey Ryan, isn't our exhaust mean as hell!!!! Just think now there will be two of us breaking peoples :eek: eardrums going up the hill into turn 6!

The Anytime Race exhaust is just plain sick. I love it. :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

With the Cantrell AIS, my car now sounds the way I have wanted it to since I got it. There is still room for improvement. . .

Jason, I hope you and Sean and others will come up for a driving school, in addition to the races and touring I expect you will be doing this season.

Have you seen this thread on the Stage II Dyno results? It gets a bit off track at first, but you can find the dyno graph farther down the page.

Effer, I believe the SOS Stage III dynoed at around 330 rwhp, and may have been as high as 345 or so at the wheels with the ITBs and perhaps some additional tuning, ICBW.

If you plan on going the NA route with TODA, plan on spending ALOT of money just for the parts. Also plan on waiting a few more years. They still do not have all of the parts necessary to complete the engine. Last I checked with them, the cams are still not ready yet. I've been waiting 2 years for them to be done. I'd check the SOS stuff out. They are tons cheaper and are ready to go now. TODA is more for race anyway. You even have to supply your own engine management as well. SOS is ready to go! :biggrin:

You need to dyno & run the car to truly catalog the performance increases you're feeling....i plan on going a similar route before F/I'ing so I'm really interested in the results as I know many others would be as well....good stuff & congrats :)

Steve and I ran into Jason @ (where else) Road America today. The car sounds sweet!

so any dyno updates? =)

i'm curious, the stage 2 sounds alot cheaper than my 02 conversion idea :biggrin:

lol!!!
 
I second that....dyno updates please! :)
 
woot yes please audio
i'd hope that with the increased overlap and lift it should sound hella cooler

Am I missing something? That would mean your mod combo generated ~80HP over stock:confused:

The cams, springs and retainers reflect the SOS stage 3 package, not stage 2...and SOS only claims 52HP gained. W/ the chip I could maybe see 60HP but that's a big maybe.

DYNO PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!
 
well according to another guy with the Stage 2 he ended up with about 280 rwhp with the I/H/E + Stage 2

<img src = "http://www.nsxprime.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=13736&d=1108611738">

given a rough baseline of 265 rwhp for a na1 + I/H/E it seems about right that cams and a tuned ecu would net you around 15 wheel horsepower.

13% drive loss puts the crank horsepower around 320 crank horsepower
