    Sealed the brake master cyl ports as it is time consuming task to get rid of tiny bubbles from the cyl without taking it off the car and bench bleeding it first.


    Original ABS removed. Heavy and quite big.

    Before removing the blower fan, I had to remove the drain pipe attached nearby and it was full of leaves, debris, etc.


    Also, the cabin air temperature was full of unpleasant dust so I was expecting more or less some dirty condition at the A/C evaporator.


    But, it was beyond my expectation and it looked like this.....


    I normally wash my A/C Evaporator once a year and also I have

    Had to focus on other projects recently so couldnít spend much time on this NSX but Iím back now.

    But, first thing first, I wanted to wash my NSX because of the recent snowy weather and so much gritting on the road that it looked like white/grey car than a red one.

    Once all the salt were washed away from the suspension and under body area, Iím happy for the time being until I repeat the process again next weekend.

  4. Testing the Latest ABS modulator

    by , 30-12-2010 at 12:17 PM (Today at Atelier Kaz - Private NSX Enthusiast, ex-Honda R&D engineer with F1, Indy/CART background)

    From time to time, the accuracy and the reliability of new parts are not up to oneís expectation. For example, there has been some failed units reported on the latest ABS modulator even from new.


    Therefore, it is always important to test it before the installation.
    You donít want to install and upgrade to the latest ABS only to find the failure at the control boardÖ

  5. ABS Upgrade Loom by KSP Engineering

    by , 27-12-2010 at 09:13 PM (Today at Atelier Kaz - Private NSX Enthusiast, ex-Honda R&D engineer with F1, Indy/CART background)

    Recently, I placed an order to KSP Engineering for their ABS upgrade loom.


    http://kspweb.jp/shopdetail/004008000001/046/001/order/

    Today, I received the message from them that they have shipped the looms out.

    I think it will take a while due to the bad weather we had recently but I hope Iíll receive them at the beginning of January.

    So, for those who ordered it, itís on its way now from JapanÖ
