Between a 2004 Acura TSX or a BMW 325. Is the BMW much more expensive to maintain?

January 15th, 2011 · No Comments

- You will have much less maintenance with an Acura, as they are the luxury brand of Honda. They are very very well built cars and last a long time.
German made cars are good, but reparing them can be a hassle and become quite expensive. If you are MOST concerned about maintenance, get the Acura, or any other Japanese made engine.

December 8th, 2009 · No Comments

Preparation for Installation

This will require the use of longer vacuum hoses in some cases.
3. Disconnect battery and drain coolant.

BOOSTZILA Super Charging System for the Acura/Honda NSX Installation

November 7th, 2009 · No Comments

The installation of the supplied high pressure fuel pump requires removing and reinstalling the fuel tank. An automotive lift makes this job much easier. The fuel tank can be removed with the car on jack-stands, provided you have the car high enough, and an assistant ready to help you. Our recommendation is to use an automotive lift, as it is much easier. Even if you are doing this super charger installation yourself you may want to consider taking the car to your shop and have your technician install the complete fuel system which consists of the fuel pump, fuel lines, fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator as well as some minor wiring changes to the fuel system. With the new high pressure fuel system in place you will be able to drive the car home to continue the balance of the installation.
