Ouch, ya she just went there.

No homo but seriously, the S2000 is a fun car and really capable if you push it. I get the feeling people don't know how to drive it and then claim it sucks. Intake & cams on their way for you E30_Girl.

Yes its a stage II cam from Skunk2 that is BPUs plus a tune nets 242whp (graph below) I'd like to get the AEM on it as well.

I think this level NA tune will be ideal in the car for 2-3 track seasons. I've driven one with 272whp NA and it was a lot jam for the chassis and a challenge to keep under control.

When the car is mastered, we'll start looking at either the Ultimate Racing Turbo Kit 400ish or Peak Boost Turbo GT35R kit 454whp. Which is a monster and needs a skilled wheelman/woman. At this point pull out all the upgrades and eBay 'em, not ideal for a turbo S2K. Installing Turbo cams kind of a hassle but the head will have to be openup anyway for new headgasket and ARP studs anyway to handle the booooost.

Haha naw, in my head its something like this.

- intake, header & exhaust and let the factory ECU learn them
- coilovers to dump it
- 18-inch wheels fat sticky tires 225 / 285s
- then pick up an AEM EMS + cams a bit down the road
- enjoy for a couple seasons until the driver is ready to step-up to a turbo and retune the EMS.

You sure about leaving the ECU for now? I remember reading the SCC coilover shootout a couple years back, they had about a dozen S2000s involved. It was a track time shootout, so all mods were regulated heavily to keep the game even (i.e. see which suspension alone was fastest). However, they let the companies do whatever the hell they wanted with the intake/exhaust/header because they knew that these parts add absolutely no power with the stock ECU (which was required by the rules, as you CAN gain power with that). They were right, as all of the healthy AP2s made pretty much the same power despite mod differences.

I say ECU early in the game.

Linds be careful about posting the price online, especially if you're gonna try to say you paid less at customs. You wont believe what canada customs can find on line.
