any modded nsx's here?

I was wondering what kind of things a NSX owner could do to get more POWER our of their honda. I know comptech makes a supercharger, but I dont have a clue how much power it adds. Anyone?

No, I dont own nor race one. I was just curious. I see so many articles about so and so's bpu supra or monster rx7 or turbo miata, etc etc. I rarely see an article about a modded NSX. I was just wondering if that was because its expensive and/or difficult to mod?

check out NSX Prime for some modified NSXs; its a whole NSX enthusiast club.

I don't think its that hard, but its just that the NSX is much more expensive than say a RX-7 or Supra.

Beware that you won't see many NSXs over the 500hp mark...there is one at the 1200hp for drag racing, but it takes a lot of work to get that much power because the NSX's stock OEM parts are of such great quality (well thats Honda, and the parts have excellent technology, and also the NSX wasn't supposed to be tinkered with).

Also, check out wwww.pansx.com

Just my 2HP

Comp Tech mods to NSX

Adding a comp-tech supercharger to and NSX can add as much as 40% more horesepower. Look at comp-tech's website to see the actual numbers. This is true of putting a supercharger on any car. I've put a supercharger on a '94 Integra from Jackson Racing and it improved significantly the horsepower and thus, power available. It's expensive to do in most cases. For the Integra the kit was $3000, and for the NSX it's around $10000. However, it's a very reliable and relatively simple way to add significant horsepower to your car.

I have a slightly modded NSX. All I've done so far is lower my car about 2 inches and added a custom exhaust. I have some 18/19 inch wheels on order aswell. In my garage I have 75-150 shot NOS kit, sway bars, WW body kit, full stereo system, and other stuff. I would like to add a turbo/sc, but they are expensive. That's why I'm adding the NOS for now. :bandit:

Will do as soon as I get some pics worthy of posting. I have some at home of the NSX when I first got it. But the car is begging for some nice wheels and I finally got them on order. Should have them in 2 weeks!! :smoker2: I can't wait!!
Oh yeah, I forgot I have a Comptech Powergrip 2 clutch to handle the NOS and also some OEM NSX fog lights. I need to get with it and start installing this stuff. :silly2:

PS - You guys should checkout www.NSXPrime.com Tons of awesome NSX's!! (edit)<-Someone already mentioned this.... sorry.
