Here at MaydayGarage we make it a point to show the world what we, as ricers, would like. A few weeks ago we shared with our readers Dennis Muriel’s Do-luck kitted NSX. Ultra clean and “ in-between the lines tuning” were a few of the words that we used to describe Dennis’ style. This week however, we are sharing a different perspective. A perspective of an NSX build that steps outside the lines for a mix between GT and street, we’d like to share with you Henry Kosasih’s version, a widebody Sorcery NA1 NSX.
Sitting down over a cup of coffee, Mayday Mikey mentioned to me what it was like the first time he laid eyes upon Henry’s NSX. “ It was as though time stood still, the NSX was stuck there in the moment, allowing you to take it all in, everything that the car had to offer.” Funny how a piece of machinery can make time stand dead in its tracks.
I have been fortunate to know Henry for a few years now, and I will tell you that he is no slouch when it comes to building cars. Coming from the European world with a bad ass E46 M3, Henry decided to step up his game with the NSX. And knowing how he had built his M before it was no secret that the day the NSX landed in henrys lap in 2006, it wasn’t going to be a simple tune.
The NSX is the Japanese exotic of the industry that we all have grown to love from our adolescence into adulthood. From mildly tuned, like previously Dennis Muriel, to the mix of GT and Street like Henry Kosasih’s, the NSX provides a super versatile platform to build upon. And when you catch a tuner car like this one in the wild, you can’t help but appreciate art like this. Henry’s build is, awesome.
From the front, Henry converted the classic pop-up headlights to the kouki NA2 fixed lamp setup. To each their own on this choice, as I love either setup, but this one for DAMN sure looks good. Coupled with the Sorcery hood, fenders, and front carbon splitter, the face means nothing but business.
And speaking of Sorcery, Henry’s NSX reps Sorcery hardcore as he used to be one of the sole distributors of the aero here in the United States. In fact at one point in time Henry had enough Sorcery Parts to build three FULL NSXs at his house. BALLER!
The not-so-common practice of a 18/19” NSX staggered wheel setup being coupled with full aero, wing, and being hammered, does it get any better? And the rear spats? Well, you wont be finding these on just any NSX. The rear spats on Henry’s car were custom designed by none other than Mr. Inoewe Sorcery himself!
Check out the Brembos, which are Ferrari F50 Calipers with 32mm two piece floating racing slotted rotors up front and Lotus Calipers with 28mm two piece floating racing slotted rotors in the rear. There is a LOT of “Best of BOTH” worlds going on here for stopping power and the gold flows perfectly with the red.
Of all of the parts that make Henry’s NSX though, I would say the one I dig the most sits in the interior. I am not talking about the seats, although they are carbon and SUPER nice, they cant match the Ikyea formula sequential shifter madness. Man, such a hardcore move for the street but oh so fun.
Henry runs an normally aspirated setup on his NSX with some pretty awesome BPU parts. He has freed up his exhaust flow with GT-One headers and Hot-Pipe and increased his intake capacity with an oversized Comptech throttle body. But this isn’t going to last for long because Henry has a bit of individual throttle body action in the works, and you can bet your ass that you will see those horns on MaydayGarage when they arrive.
When we were shooting the car, I had to ride passenger with Henry around the sites that we decided to grace with our photo gear. Everywhere we went necks were broken Kung Fu style as the slammed NSX turned corners in downtown. Kids, parents and patrons were stopping us in the streets to take pictures. It’s an awesome thing when a car can create inspiration and awe all at once, keeping the young and old tuner on their toes.
Speaking of keeping you on your toes, that squat, man, that dumped ass looks sooooo good with the Mayday Garage license plate. The rear is clearly accentuated by the massive GruppeM exhaust that hangs in between the spats and just below the adjustable Sorcery GT wing. The exhaust almost reminds me of the old SW20 Garage Fukui exhaust from the 90’s. And a big ass chrome exhaust making it known that you mean business, people need more of this on the street!
By now anyone that pays attention to our blog has a rough idea of what we like. We have respect for all kinds of tuning across the board, but what really gets us off is over the top cars like Henry’s NSX. Cars that resemble birth of street mated with track. Big wing + Big rims + Big aero = Big rice, and that is our roots.
I think it is funny when I sit down with Henry and talk about anything car related, I mean, it would be one thing if he was a lone ricer bachelor like some of us, but no, he has a wife and kids too which makes it ten times harder to pull the trigger on a tune. But hey, that’s what makes him a tuner right? Oh ya, Henry also drives an Amuse BMW M3 as his daily, but we will save that for another time, until then.
