Nothing else used the C32 engine... so if one blows, you need to source an engine from a totalled NSX.

What's worse in Bob's case is that he has the NA2... Honda sold a shit ton of NA1s...sourcing a C30 engine is a wee bit easier...but once the NA2 came out, sales were only a fraction of that of the NA1. Its just that much harder/more expensive to source a c32.

I indeed have the C32B.

As an aside, all automatic NSXs from 1999-2005 are NA1 and have C30B engines. NSX trivia....

Plan is to run low boost. Any boost is risky, but Iím trying to minimize the risk. Iím running the AEM for two reasons: a) this particular kit didnít come with the stock CT fuel controller. b) even if I did have the fuel controller, Iíd still need a tuning solution to deal with the SC when it gets hotóone of the few weaknesses of the stock CT kit. I am thinking of adding meth injection even to my planned low boost setup but am not in a hurry to do so. Running bigger injectors for more headroom.

I got a pretty good deal on the kit, the AEM V2 by itself, used, with NA2 base programming, is ordinarily $1-1.5k by itself.

If the engine blows, Iíll just do a K-swap or a J35 swap. Hopefully, that day never comes.

How is Bob this cool?
Bob. How are you this cool?

I think you should put your time and effort into the NSX and part ways with the 6MT Vagon for cheap. I know I'm 1000th on your list, but you know...

ROFLMAO. I wish I were as cool as you.

Give up the V wagon? Nope. Love it too much. Though for the right price north of $60k, Iíd have to think about it....

How many psi is the low boost pulley? Mine is rock solid on 3.5 psi, and there's even someone in Florida who runs 6psi not tuned (for years now). You'll be fine.

for the nsx 6lbs is the low boost and 9 is the high boost. I hate to say it but you are very wrong. It’s very well known in the nsx community if not done right high boost is a ticking time bomb on an nsx. So it has to be tuned correctly and or some sort of cooling to help. I thought about high boost but I’m going to stay low. It’s plenty power for me.
