Ah... I know the story well. My whole project took 2 years and 7 months before the car came home this past July. Lots of frustration, but oh well,... she's home now. :) Good luck with the project. :) Any ET on completion?

I don't know what all the fuss is about??? after all it's only an NSX... Besides, I've seen alot better NSX's than yours...

JUST KIDDING!!!!

I have known Graeme a very long time and his NSX project is a testimonial of the thought process he goes through for his car projects. I just can't keep up with Graeme. :( :( :( I actually have both of these pics as my background for my two PC's.





SIMPLY AMAZING :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

Hi Jeff... How have you been? Are you a member of NSXPrime? What's your screen name? It would be great if me, you, Graeme and any other local NSX owner can hook up. You just missed the ALMS event that was held last weekend. There were about 80+ NSX's at the Acura tent.

A little go to go with the show. :D

Graeme... Congratualtions :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: I know it's been quite a journey for you and with the new tune and incredible results, you can now close the chapter on the engine build of your NSX project. :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

In order for me to get that kind of horsepower, I'm going to need to add up the hp from my NSX, BMW, and Toyota :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Thanks, guys.

Mike, yup, it's been a long road, and I am glad that I can put it behind me. There are just a couple of little things left for me to do like upgrade my cooling system and such, but it's otherwise done. I drove down to Vance's today and it was nice to see my gas gauge move far less than it did before this last tune.

Only drawback is that now that the car is so much nicer to drive, I might drive it too much. :giggle:

Thanks, guys.

Brian, it's power that I hardly ever use, but "it's better to have and not need, than to need and not have." :mhihi:
