    Now I understood why there was clicking noise at the Left drive shaft after removing it from the car and even when rotated it by just the hand.

    There was no 60deg offset between the inboard and outboard spider/tripod.

  2. TH Butterfly

    The owner mentioned that the idle rpm was stable but not quite.


    I’ll be cleaning the TH butterfly for the owner this time.


    Removed the air box for the preparation.

    New pulley installed and torqued to the spec.


    My Digital torque wrench that failed the other day was replaced with a completely new one and used it for tightening the pulley bolt to the spec.


    Thanks for the life time warranty and quick customer support from the manufacture and the tool shop that I always use.


    Tensioned the ACG and A/C belts and torqued all the bolts/nuts to the ...

    These were preliminary introduced to the owners at the last year’s 20th NSX fiesta at Suzuka and now the official announcement was made.

    For this NSX, as the owner has already ...
