I don't have numbers to compare with, but that seems like a small gain. I was always under the imperssion that it was possible to see a 25-30hp increase out of an aftermarket exhaust. The car does look sweet though, I would rock pearl white rims on it.

^In general unless the car is retuned to take advantage of the mods you won't see gains that are that large. Depends on the car though.

Chip or software, depends on the car.

That's where I'm going next with the car cams and AEM just don't think that will be this year. I'm going to definetly do wheels this year though. Had to get the important stuff first exhaust, intake and suspension.

First off congrats on your new ride...I like the S2000's but there just isn't enough leg room for guys 6' plus.

Second I find it interesting that your S2000 is faster than any E36 M3. I have raced a couple S2000's that my buddies had with a 2006 Honda Accord V6 and they couldn't pull away from me. In fact that faster we went the more I started pulling them. Now I have raced E36 M3's with this same Honda Accord and even with a noob driver in the M3..130+ they easily take off on me. Both cars stock too.

You must have one of those freak motors

I'd explain what the word "more" means, but from your other posts here I'll assume it'll go over your head also.
