Less tuning, less piping, cheaper (in theory). Twin turbos have an awesome habit of producing boost spikes due to the nature of the beast; there's just no way both turbos are going to spool at the same time on each side.

Disadvantages: Less baller, spools slower (in theory), less complicated manifold (in theory).

Nice Car! I don't know if I could hold back from driving it. I got a chance to drive a friends 1992 NSX with only 50,000 miles on it! I almost wish I haden't driven it, because now I want one!

It does look small doesn't it??? In the first pic I thought it was a MR-S with a kit or sumthing then I was like oh...NSX? I think it's the angle.

yea when we put it into the garage next to my car, it was only a foot longer than the miata, give or take a few inches, and the width is just a lil bit wider too

I've never been a real big fan of the NSX I would have gone with a old 930 turbo for probably the same price. But that's just my opinion.
