VEHICLE STORY

This car is my baby. It showed up at Acura of Peoria one day - I went to look and I was hooked. I traded in a 2011 Subaru STI for this car. The paint is a little rough in edges but mechanically it is much better. The car is an absolute blast to drive, much more than even the STI. Due to its mid engine setup and the fact that the car is so low to the ground it feels like your personal LeMans racer. The V6 engine note is very sweet and in the high rev ranges does a throaty growl that reminds me of Chewbacca (in a good way.)  Right now the engine is stock except for a K&N intake cone. I plan on giving it some forced induction and an engine refresh through Science of Speed at some point, as I don't really have the tools, space and time to work on the mid engine car points myself. Right now the car keeps up in a straight line with WRXes but is not really that impressive except at speed.  Also, some Bilstein struts and new springs are also going to happen, as the current struts are OEM.  After that, some new tires and wheels (I plan on going to a 17" 18" staggered setup) are in the works. I've had my eye on some TSW Nurburgrings!

yea - I swung by last Oct when I was in PHX and asked about that. He said they had been doing some mods (I assumed that meant they were looking into diversifying) and he remarked that the car is very complicated (which I assumed as things were not going as enjoyably as one would have liked). Those were just my assumptions no idea if that's accurate. I really liked this NSX-R conversion they were doing where they welded a solid top to an NSX-T. That is commitment. I inquired about doing that and they were not enthusiastic about doing it again. There was a '95 that I was thinking about buying and doing a build on but I would prefer a hard top for that.

It's great that you are close to Science of Speed. Great shop for NSX and S2000 lovers.

Oh yeah they are super nice guys. Been privileged enough to talk to just about everyone there at least once. The garage seems to also have an Audi R8 there pretty much most of the time.
