Cosworth Block and HEads!!!

The ultimate in engine news!! Looks like the NSX sources its heads and block from Cosworth, yes THAT cosworth...

Super stoked to hear that...

Quote:
The car uses parts sourced globally, and one of those sources is Cosworth. The engine blocks and heads come from the English firm and get assembled into twin-turbo powerhouses at Honda's nearby Anna, Ohio, engine plant. The Cosworth name is rarely associated with a bad engine, so we were geeked to hear the NSX's 550-plus-horsepower hybrid powertrain has good genes.
Acura NSX will use Cosworth block, plus other neat tidbits

That's awesome. I know Cosworth is well known among the Ford Focus community and they've done well with pushing those engines. Looking forward to hearing more about the NSX as more comes to light.

So with outsourcing the engine build... Whose engineered design is it in the end.
Honda, part Honda, or Other/ Cogsworth?

There could even be more cosworth influence on the engine aside from the block, after all there are other parts that come into play.

I would guess that its more of a collaboration then complete outsourcing. The NSX has been Acura's pet project. I would expect them to be involved in the new engine design.

highly doubt the NSX engine can be outsourced because according to Automobile Magazine, it now needs to be flipped into a longitudinal position and that requires a bespoke engine.

Almost seems to be tradition with Honda, taking on more of a hands-on approach with development of key components.

you know that means absolutely nothing to whomever is building the engine... They can install it upside down if they so care, but its still built bolt by bolt...

Exactly who ever is building it would be concerned about what they add to it and how it impacts the rest of the car and how to make it work within the engine bay and the rest of the vehicle.
