The NSX http://www.acura.com/models/nsx_specs_results.asp
I figure that the out put for the engines would be
3.0 = 84hp per L
3.2 - 90.6hp per L.
Also What do you think the out put on the 3800 II would be with the same compression and higher RPMs
He is right on the HP per L thing but who cares??? The NSX is an Exotic sports car while the bonnie is a Family car with balls, compare apples to apples, for example the NSX to the McLaren F1 (both mid-engined sports cars) who is gonna win now???
Now, if you insist on talking about Bonnie vs. NSX lets see here...
The NSX has the following:
A Final drive ratio of 4.062:1
224 ft/lbs. @ 5500 RPM
290 HP @ 7100 RPM
8000 RPM Redline
and a 10.2:1 Compression Ratio
Titanium alloy Connecting Rods
Aluminum alloy with fiber-reinforced metal (FRM) cylinder liners
Oh, almost forgot about the gear ratios...
Now... what do you think a 3800 Series II engine would give you when built to those spec.???
