Stance Acquired v2.0 NSX edition

figured id moved my build thread over here and out of my CL thread. i seriously only go to that side to update my thread and maybe check 2 or 3 other build threads. other than that im over in car talk or ramblings. plus the other nsx's are over here and wanted to join in.

heres how it looked bone stock when i bought it.

im not the biggest fan of the stock nsx wheel. it looks so outdated so i decided to do the acura csx wheel swap. still need to order the short hub and adaptor to install it.

Gorgeous NSX. Maybe I'm biased, but these cars don't look dated at all to me.

Very nicely done. Those wheels really make the car pop (not that it needed much help to start with)

yeeeeaaa buddy! I wonder how far you're going to take her. I assume some type of boost according to your CL build.

hey coming from you that means a lot. you seriously set the bar for nsx owners in my opinion.

i hope to take her pretty far. leaps and bounds further than my CL. i would like to S/C the nsx also but if i do thats way in the distant future. im already currently working on 3 things for the car at the moment that i should be updating my thread with pretty soon.

Wow beautiful ride. Nothing sexier than red w/tan leather when it comes to exotic looking cars. Completely classic.

I have to admit here that I never realized they made automatic NSXs. Learn something new everyday. How are the shifts from the auto? Any mods to help with the shifting of it at all? Back in the day with my Skylark I put a shift kit in it and it was tire chirping fun everytime I drove afterward lol.

Did you just say - "Skylark", "shift-kit" and "fun" - all in the same sentence?

BC coils seem like a hit or miss almost between different models. Maybe in the past they were bad but I have heard nothing but good things from the IS community as well on them. However plenty of Subie owners say they are trash.

Yup, here it is... from last month. Thought this sounded and looked familiar: https://acurazine.com/forums/car-talk-5/car-talk-intro-853565/

I closed that one so you can keep it all in one topic...

thats an aftermarket nav i have. the japanese nsx's did come with factory nav. but it was mounted on top of the dash. i plan on doing dash mounted nav in the future. its a 4 speed auto.
