    And I thought I was bad last year at around 1k miles!!! I have high flow Cats so always give the car a good run before hand ... plus make a point of using in the week leading up to MOT to blow out the cobwebs ...

    本年も よろしくお願いします。

    Thank you for referring my 'Wanted' post of SRS unit and contacting 'drew' at NSX Prime.
    Very helpful and he was happy for me to mention it.
    I learnt a lot of new things about NSX and Legend SRS unit as well.
    Not sure what will be the end result but at least, several options available for the owner.

    As for the Bilsteins I'd recommend to mount the lower spring perch in the way it maximizes the clearance to the tire. In the picture and viewed from below I'd turn it by around 120 degrees clockwise which is compatible with the upper mount/holes.
    Also check the clearance with the car on the ground and imagine how the tire moves in a sharp corner, it's up to 8 mm. I've seen some cars with problemtic clearance esp. with aftermarket rims and tires. An ET > 45 mm is normally solves the problem.

    I'm curious if you are allowed to ask how the spark plugs show misfire?

    Not sure what you meant Jonathan but I believe it was related to the Brands Hatch event.
    Looks like everyone had good time. Hope the time attack car will be back on track soon. Overtaking in the parade lap....

    Yes, Senninha, that was Day 1, the start of my ownership.

    Even in 94, there was still a few months waiting time for the delivery.

    My friend bought the standard model after the announcement but then decided to go for the Type-R later.
    He introduced me to the same Honda dealer in Tokyo.
    Ahead of collecting my NSX, I asked them to place the car on the lift for inspection and as they knew my background, no questions asked.




    Out of the factory, mine looked like this.


    I still keep contacting the same sales person in the white shirt above after all these years.

    The compressor position is shifted about 8mm outward on the 97+ bracket while the A/C idler pulley geometry stayed the same.
    Thus, the pulley/CL assy design changed on the 97+ model.

    Extra photo for future reference.








    Mounting geometry at the Eng block is exactly the same between the two.

    Finally, managed to cover more than 50 miles of test driving session.
    Probably the longest time in my life to cover just 50 miles.

    Went to the post office before the Easter bank holiday starts and there were long-long queue outside.
    By the time I managed getting inside, missed the final collection time of 2pm by just 3min as I saw the van leaving…..
    For now, only one collection per day and closes at 3pm.

    Still, all packages were moving through their system on Saturday and should be delivered tomorrow.
    Thank you for using my services and hope you'll enjoy the nice A/C control again.

    I ordered from Rock Auto Sunday afternoon and my parcel arrived today (Thursday), I also selected a slower service to save money, pretty good I thought!
    I have one coming from Amayama though, I hope that follows just as quick....

    2020 is the first year I haven’t taken the NSX for a drive in memory of the great man.
    With the current global situation, I feel I will like many be keeping an eye on the battery conditioner for most of the year ...

    On a positive Kaz, you may now have the time to install the rest of the carpet set

    Stay safe and well my friend
