Available pretty much everywhere.

I found the belt to have a little more initial stretch then a factory belts would, after the initial stretch it was fine though.

Not bad at all... from my measurements its approx .001 too loose from spec using plastigauge but the old bearings were on the verge of being on the tight side. Reading different forums it has been said that running them slightly loose is actually a good thing....Long story short, It's great!

Throwing down my build for this winter...
- 3.3 custom rear end gears (if they ever get made)
CONTACT Bill @ MIATAROADSTER FOR SPECIAL PRICING QUICK if you want them.
- Custom HellaFab Intake Manifold
CONTACT Shlammed if you want one, he is doing amazing work!
- Hondadata intake manifold gasket
- AEM EMS-4 (Upgrading from MS2)
- Injector Dynamics ID1000s
- FAB9 Cops wired sequential
- 13-1 Timing wheel
- New coolant re-route spacer (if there is interest in my current Mtuned setup)

That's all I can think of for now.
Only thing I have in my possession is the AEM EMS-4 and it's a nice looking unit that should be much easier to mount.

If anyone is looking for ANY stock msm stuffs...lemme know via PM as I will be making some sale threads shortly.

Earlier this summer doing my best to keep traction during a muddy autoX session:


Immediately after the paintwork was completed last spring:



There...updates complete until I tear into the car more.

I need to change the name of this thread to the N/A MSM build.

A recap of this summer:
-I did a catch can setup after noticing a lot of oil in the intercooler and piping. Was still getting a TON of blowby into catch can afterwards.
Ignore the missing line

-Had a tuning session booked and went anyway.

-Car had serious warm restart issues after tuning (crazy lean on hot restart)
-Car worked great after turning up the boost
video of said great: http://vid72.photobucket.com/albums/...pswbiukqsi.mp4

-Did a run after tuning and it resulted in massive blow by and engine failure. Melted pistons.



...got pissed off


-in order to get through the summer, I replaced the block with a stock bottom end from a 94 miata. It also had insane low compression because I'm an idiot and never checked it out beforehand. Limped through the summer.
http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i1...psgx63ov68.jpg

-Being the genius that I am I dumped a can of "engine restorer" in it as my give a **** factor was super low...this worked!!
-the turbo gave out from what I guess is lack of oiling a few days later from that same restore ****.
http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i1...pspnskptvl.jpg

Started taking it apart and got mad again...hasn't run since:
http://vid72.photobucket.com/albums/...pskg9g08w2.mp4




So I stole my friend's NSX and drove that around for the rest of the summer:



I've always wanted to do it...and now I am...i'm going Naturally Aspirated

For those that made it this far...DRIVETRAIN PART OUT is eminent when car comes out of storage around february/march.

HAha... Man that sucks... I understand though. I'm n/a with the new 99 and am quite enjoying it. But the temptation to boost is still lingering. As much as Consealer404 wants to convince me otherwise haha.

When you want to boost...I got some parts you may want...
Like Rods, injectors, coils, head rebuilt with dual valve springs, clutch, spare block, another spare block (cause you'll need it).... haha

Concealer404 is wrong and you should not listen to him. Boost is always the answer, and more boost is the answer to the follow up question.

Damn man, what a string of rotten luck.

You have a friend who will let you simply drive his NSX around all summer?

What kind of friend is this, and where do I get one?

A close military friend who is posted out of country for a few years.
Gave the car some maintenance, entered car shows and stretched its legs a little bit too. Good for it! Was only a couple months.

Bricks were shat...
with a hole in the piston the compression basically pumped all the oil out of the block through the catch can and oil pan vent.

Was bone dry by the time I gave it a gallon of oil and a 2miles limp home. Might have saved the block if I hadn't done that...but anger got the best of me.
