  1. Parts price and ...

    by , 02-01-2011 at 10:37 AM (Today at Atelier Kaz - Private NSX Enthusiast, ex-Honda R&D engineer with F1, Indy/CART background)
    In Japan, Honda has announced that they are increasing the parts price for the old models.
    This is quite common as they normally revise the price in Autumn and Spring every year. Having said this, it seems that the price is about to be increased from this week.

    Not sure the level of increase for NSX parts but I just hope it won't be too much like we had several years ago.


    As reported from several sources towards the end of last year, Honda has started the ...

    Happy New Year to all of the NSX Enthusiasts.
    Wishing you and your NSX a wonderful 2011.

    Had really good time with my friends last night for the count down to 2011 and I hope everyone had enjoyable time as well.


    Looking forward to meeting some of the members through the 2011 Events, Health Check, NSX Service, Mini-meeting and so on.

    As I have no idea on when the delivery will be made in the new year, I decided to collect some of the packages arrived at the local depo even without receiving the information from UK Customs for the Import Duty/VAT.

    They were the ABS Upgrade looms from KSP Engineering, Japan and the iPod adaptor PA11-HON from USA Spec, USA.

    Looking forward to installing these on another NSX very soon.

  5. 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
