Honda’s NSX is the stuff of legend. Developed with input from Ayrton Senna, produced by Honda for 15 years with only minor changes, it’s the Japanese supercar that shook the Italians and forced them to raise their game.
Which means that when it comes to fitting a NSX with performance exhaust it needs to be a top quality item befitting of the Honda supercar’s legend – which is where Japanese tuning house TODA Racing comes in.
It’s just launched a new range of ‘High Power’ exhausts for both the 3.0-litre (C30A, 270bhp,) and 3.2-litre (C32B, 290bhp) variants of the Honda NSX.
Featuring an innovative ‘X-pipe’ between the two silencer boxes to minimise back pressure and maximise the aural experience from the NSX’s high revving V6 engine, the TODA ‘High Power’ exhaust features 60mm diameter internal tubing and slash cut round tailpipes boasting a smart titanium blue finish.
Surely these TODA exhausts are perfect for any discerning Honda NSX owner and they are available now from TODA Europe, priced at £2025.00 excluding taxes.

Having reduced the exhaust back pressure in part 2 of this blog, we turned our attention to minimising the intake restriction that creates a depression in the intake flow path which reduces engine performance.
Nick liked the look of the MUGEN high performance air box, and duly instructed us to install one.
As you would expect from MUGEN, the quality of the kit is exemplary and the fitment is perfect, taking approximately 1 hour to install.
Below you can see the MUGEN high performance air box kit installed on the CR-Z
Here’s the dyno chart for the standard air box and MUGEN air box, which shows a healthy improvement throughout the speed range.
