    I just picked up a k&n intake. It's pretty much just a filter with a very small adapter on it. Should be getting it onthe mail this week hopefully.

    Sounds good, NSX's don't have a MAF sensor, just an IAT right? If it's a MAF, oiled filter is no good.

    The oil from the filter hits the MAF sensor and, in essence, makes it read incorrect readings - very bad for your motor

    Bit of an update. Since getting the maintanence done the car has been running really good. The speedometer was going wonky so I replace the sensor which took care of the problem.

    I also replaced the monstrosity of an antenna that came on the car. When the radio was on it must have reached upwards to 6 feet. I replaced it with a stubby.



    Then I was preparing her for her first long distance trek to Boston. She ran pretty good other then swaying all over the road. Every rut in the road the car wanted to follow. So we jacked her up and figured out the problem was a bad front left side outter tie rod end and left rear outter ball joint.









    And after 1500+kms this is how she looked once she got to sleep for the night.



    So the car once again sits up on jack stands and awaits removal and the send off of the knuckle to get a new ball joint installed. Acura doesnt just sell a ball joint, you have to replace the whole knucle/ball joint assembly.


    So since the car is up on jack stands





    I decided to change up the wheels a bit. About 10 coats of plastidip later and this is the result.









    And here was one taken from DT Fredericton. One of my favorites so far for sure.

    Looks awesome! How much is this going to set you back price wise?

    For the ball joint? About $250.

    Damn, you gotta pay to play in exotics territory. Well worth it though, from what I can see. Any new shots with the plasti-dipped wheels?

    The car is still on jack stands so I havent put the wheels back on. Plus I only had one can of plastidip so I only got 2 wheels done. That shit is crazy expensive here. $20.99 a can here vs. $5.98 a can at Lowes. My inlaws were in Maine for the day so I got them to pick me up 8 cans lol.
