What do ya'll think? I know its older but I like that look. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3344149 ? I got a good deal on it, it has the Vortec V8 engine. I was just looking for something jacked up, wasn't concerned about whether it was a ford, toyota, chevy, nissan or anything, but from what I have been told by my friends, I did a goodjob with my selection. Basically got it so I could take my trash to the dump since there is no trash pickup here, and I am not very fond of burning plastics in my fire pit. The cool thing is I can take it out in swamps and go mudding, eventhough I've never done it before...I think I should probably get a winch too for it. It runs really smooth, and from what I can tell 88K miles isn't much for this motor and should last for a long time, your thoughts?

Just a heads up. FWIW, My Norton anti-virus went crazy when I visited that cardomain link.

looks like you could lift that truck a couple more inches and save yourself a parking stall by parking the acura under the truck...

I have a 99 model with the vortec with about 350k miles on it and still runs great.

That is awesome, I got a steal of a deal on it, the only thing wrong was the alignment was off but thats getting fixed tomorrow. Its really in good cosmetic shape too for being a offroad vehicle, but I am really not worried about that, as long as it runs and gets me over to the trash dump im happy, and I am pretty confident this thing will be around for awhile...The previous owner took good care of it. He didn't do anything with the exhaust though, any recommendations there.

I am in VA, and the tire size is maxed out at 39.5 inches, anything else would be illegal I think...I could be wrong thats just what I heard, if its raised up anymore I might not pass inspection here and I would be getting messed with consistently by cops im sure. It sits up pretty high, I am normally way down low but yeah it would be cool to part the acura under it as a shield, haha. It barely fits in my garage

Thanks man, my dad worked for GM for 30 years and when I told him what I got he told me that particular vortec v8 engine is the most powerful and long lasting engine ever made by GM.

2003 Acura NSX Turbo Targa

Loving that NSX man :thumbsup:
There is more pictures, even with the turbo install and even videos I put up, go to the main page HERE: Acura NSX Turbo 2003. I get more looks in that car then any i've ever been in, even a lambo. The last ricer to attempt to take me was a supercharged dodge viper, he quickly found out how much power a real light turbo'd nsx has. The nsx can keep up with the busa, but not a turbo busa. The crazy thing about the acura is it is only pushing 9psi, but the compression is really high and one day when I get the cash I am going to replace the stock rods and pistions in the nsx, then I can increase boost and really dissappear in seconds. All you would see is a "small blurb of red" as my wife says...vanish

Oh and if anyone is curious on those videos with the acura and busa if you visited my nsx, I used the small Hero Camera to do the videos, you can get one for about $180, it suction cup mounts to the bike or car, and with the upgraded memory card for like $6 you get hours of video recording, its also waterproof and I haven't quit figured out how to get the sound to work perfectly but it does work pretty good. I think I need to adjust the cover and take out a seal, anyway, its a great camera and runs on 2 batteries, so there is no wires which is what I really like. Checkout some of the demo videos at their site, you can even mount this onto a surf board or pretty much anything and record. The movie I liked best was on the dirt bike.

Mine still has stock exhaust, but one of the CATs is staring to make some noise, i guess it is broke loose inside, ya might try some Flowmaster they sound nice.
