It's fun. If the situation presented itself, I might get back into a FD..... as long as it was something like turbotommy's.

Peer pressure, or your own innate inability to not go fast as hell?

Love it... Not sure if I can ever bring myself to sell the FD. BUT I do have to admit the thought has crossed my mind many times in the past for exactly what you have there. NSX sc'd. There is just something that keeps drawing me to the NSX (maybe cause its stupid sexy), if only the interior did not leave me wanting...

I sold the Supercharger last year and went with a Lovefab GT37R kit. It runs great now @ 10 psi.

Lovefab eh? I stopped by their shop when I was in Traverse City over the summer and checked it out. Tabitha and Cody are great people, and they do some AMAZING work.

Nice. Glad to see you're running AUX injection too. Do the NSX guys know much about the amazing results of adding some H2o?
