My friend just took delivery of a '01 NSXT.
He challenged me to a race tonight on HWY 99 and the loser has to buy lunch. All I got is i/h/e, ACT clutch, and a lighter flywheel. Do I have a chance??

NSX Turbo?
Even I don't think that's a good matchup. From light start, you will hole shot the NSX.
Then say bye bye as you TRY to find 2cd and the NSX is 5 cars out.
Now, rolling on I-5 at 50 in 3rd, you will run with the NSX for a few MPH, then it's over.
The NSX must do at least 13's and yours? Did you go to SIR yet and find out?

There is no such thing as a stock NSX turbo, I think it stands for touring.

Just tell him that if you spent the same $90k on your 240 it would eat his car for beakfast. lol.. not even with a 3 second head start.

Results from last night battle against the '01 NSX-t (the "t" stands for Targa top, not turbo)
First off, I do not promote the idea of drag racing on public roads. Settle it on the tracks. However, when your friend start dissing your ride, it gets personal especially when he said "Nissans aren't meant for performance . . ." plus the free lunch just entices everthing. Besides, this will be the first time I go against the top-of-the-line Honda. For those of you in WA, hwy 99 is a street that turns into a highway with a stoplight at both ends.
Long story short, I got whupped 5 times. It's true when they say money=performance. Even with a 5 second lead, I had no chance against the NSX. By the time I got to 80 mph, the car was already gone. I can't give you car lengths, it was dark and he was fast. The NSX makes an intoxicating sound when it blows right by you VTEC sreaming and all. . . Guess like I better start saving for that turbo, at least then I will have a chance or maybe buy the new Z. Tonight, I get to watch it battle a modded '95 Supra . . . . will post details tomorrow or whenever

yea, its NSX-T for Targa top, which is a booo-tiful car...
If this Supra is non-BPU, then it will prolly hand the NSX-T its ass. Otherwise, it will be a good race, and will really depend on driver skill and how they launch their cars.
Nice try though, at least you got the balls to give it a try. Get an SR20DET swap and tell him you wanna rematch, without telling him of your new found power... see how that goes... http://www.freshalloy.com/

Don't waste time and $ on SR swap.
The KA is bigger and torquier than the SR
And will put out more initial pwr. Plus
you don't have to get new wiring harness
or any other little things that few talk of.
Email me so I can view this event please http://www.freshalloy.com/

I know T.Y. has no problem dealing with formidable oppenents. I wish I had his 97 KA24DET. I got a collage of your car T.Y. and I'm going the route that you have paved. Come to think, if I had your car to race the NSX-t, I wouldn't have to treat that lunch . . . . Spec240, I am not sure if its worth the drive to view the 10 minute event. I am bringing the camcorder this time to record. I get to ride shotgun in both cars starting with the NSX. As for the SR swap, that's going into my project 240 HB . . .. . I need to finish that before Hot import night coming up fast

Sadly, tonight battle against the NSX-t and the modded Supra has been rained out. Crappy Sea-Town weather . . . .

Running on less than a week till Import nights! Better get to work.
O.K. on the no show, Yet I travel to SIR once to twice a week and Portland
once a month.
So 8 miles down the road to Lynwood or 99 South Seattle is no biggy.
Maybe we will see you and your ride at the nights.

why would anyone buy a $90k (290hp)nsx? if you have that much cash you should go all the way and get the 415hp 911tt.

You're joking right? A lot people don't care about straight line performance. Some people just don't like german cars. Now, the 911 Turbo is a fantastic car, don't get me wrong, but there's a lot more to it...
Surely you won't some trivial figure like horsepower against a car that has won the respect of many enthusiats. A car is more than just the horsepower it makes... http://www.freshalloy.com/

Now why do you have to go make a comment like that. There are no one great car, and it's really up to the driver to choose whatever car he/she likes. Why do you think so many of us have the 240SX when it is not really that fast of a car for the money.

If I had that much $$$, I'd pick up a Skyline GTR from Motorex. A few tweaks, then it's all over for the NSX!

Or sr20det swap, I know some guys rather do a KA rebuild and turbo. But, I love my sr.

I have a b13 sentra se-r with an sr20det swap...just the other day I got into a race with a nsx. The guy was just cruisin about 65 in a 55 zone... and I saw him, so I crweeped up next to him an gassed it in 5th gear to kinda lunge past him a little. He see's that I want to race him and he downshifts into 3rd and tries to take off....with my car boosted at 12.5 psi I downshift into 3rd as well, and the race is on.... I start walkin on him by the time I start to reach redline in 4th gear, by the end of the race I'd say he was a good car length and a half behind me...So he gets off onto the freeway; battered and beaten by a little se-r http://www.freshalloy.com/

Go you good little thing! Hehe I love those little pocket rocket turbo pulsars. (B13s/14s are called pulsars over here) they really move when you drop a DET in there! or a VE, but that's another story... ;D

Good kill. I love those little pulsars/sentras.

the NSX is a beast.. for one thing its a light car.. second that 290hp rating is a bit misleading.. its more.. third its just a very well designed car... 160mph EASY with a NA engine of any kind is impressive.. much less a 3.2l V6

and you can get a turbo kit for the NSX but I dont believe there is a factory turbo option

290 hp may not seem like much. Heck my car has more than that, but when you make it for a long time in the rev band it can add up quick. I would love to have an NSX. It drives like a civic when you are being nice to it and a ferrari when you slam on the gas. It is one of the most reliable sports cars ever made and the looks are awesome. IMHO anyway. The exotic dealer around here sold one for ~30K. That is a tempting price.

As far as the article goes it was a good read. Very funny that they think the viper is the fastest thing on the road. http://www.freshalloy.com/ I'm not dissing it, but i know a lot of cars that will smoke it. I was at the Chrysler dealer and they were getting cocky about their cars. Told them I'd race their viper to 60 mph. The told me it would kick my butt and declined. Wish they would have taken the bait. That would have been sooooo fun.
It could be a close race, but launching a viper is hard and launching a GSX is easy. Rev to 4500-5000 rpm, slip clutch, hold on to your eyeballs. http://www.freshalloy.com/

Without sounding like someone who masturbates over F&F and has the official UNCLE BENS tm CUP HOLDER (the 50bhp special edition with the bigger sticker, not the 32bhp standard edition).
The nsx and supra and skyline pretty much hit low 13's in the 1/4 mile the same as an F355 ferrari, ive also seen the japanese test clips where they run ferrari's with their modded cars. And from what i remember a bone stock nsx beats an f355 and a skyline pretty much hangs with it.

In this light an sr20det on stock internals pushing out 300 odd bhp should be able to quite adequately whip an f355 which cost about 12 times the price.

Just how much about cars do you know of? If the answer is not a whole lot, then your friend is a jerk. A non-turboed 240 against an NSX! That's just unfair. I'm glad all he is betting you is lunch, cause man you would have been played big time. lol And then your friend says this "Nissans are meant for performance"! That's blasphemous. Skyline GTR's kill NSX's like atleast 90% of the time (stock). Modified GTR's -Fuhgetaboutit! (mocking sarcastically) Nissans are meant for performance.... http://www.freshalloy.com/

I'd still love to have an NSX they are pretty darn cool. Who cares if they aren't the fastest around. Saw one on the street once at it looked stunning. Of course you don't see too many exotics around here.

NSX has VTEC

One of the best things about the nsx is that it's so easy to drive, you don't have to be some master at manual or waste a bunch of time learning all the odd points on the clutch, i've taken a '94 nsx out and it's beautiful. It's a super car that you can get in and out of, and also see out of. vtec wasn't meant for the integra or civic, the vtec on the nsx is sooooo rude.

There are a couple companies that also make super chargers for them, rediculus.

NSX is easy to drive.
NSX looks tight as $"#!"!
NSX commonly only loses &lt; 15% of hp due to layout.

The last point above pretty much explains why even at a rated 270 / 290 hp this Honda can really move. On the cam it sounds butter.
