    King Motorsports here in Wisconsin was the sole North American distributer of Mugen parts when I first visited their shop in 1998. In the parking lot was an Acura NSX with California plates. Yes California guys with NSX's drove their cars to Wisconsin to have them worked on by the best Honda mechanics outside of Japan. King Motorsports build my '01 spec B18C5 w/ Mugen Gymkahna spec manifold in 2004.

    People are already watching your videos, thanking us doesn't do anything nobody has not watched the next video because the host didn't thank them, we are already watching the video, although I'm sure it's subconsciously appreciated it takes away from the goofiness that your videos portray

      It's racing engine, it needs a lot of service work. It wouldn't be a good idea to put this engine in a car and spend a lot of money on maintaing it every let's say 1000 miles or so :)
