    It was nice meeting some of you today at Japfest.

    As mentioned in the past, although the TB itself is the same part between non-JDM and JDM NSX, JDM one will have extra items within the package and thus, uses different part no.

    Rear bank cam shaft installed.



    Although the inside of the engine was not that dirty before start of the service, this will show how far the parts will be cleaned during the service.
