    And it's much nicer than a WRX!

    Bull****. Prove me wrong instead of spouting off sideline jeering.

    There aren't any good N/A bolt on mods. Gears are the best and pretty much the only good N/A mods for them, save for piggybacks like eManage and VAFC.

    That car is pretty much maxed N/A from the factory. Make a statement instead of useless uninformed commentary if you want to say something.

    Headers, CAI, exhaust, testpipe? Theres your bolt ons just like any other honda or acura.

    You can get plenty power out of them boosted or NA.

    Wow, you know **** about the car. If you are going to call someone out on a statement, you better know what you're talking about. And you definitely do not.

    Sorry, but no, you're wrong. Full I/H/E on an S2000 is basically a spectacular waste of money. 5-10hp at the most. The engine is indeed pretty much maxed out from the factory. The only way to make decent power is with a low psi forced induction kit. Or with a lower compression rebuild so the engine can take more boost.

    Edit: Even on the N/A side, pro shops like Spoon and stuff are often maxing them out around 270-280hp, and that's with a full N/A rebuild (higher compression, engine management, cams, precision crankshaft, port and polish, full bolt ons, etc.) which is ludicrously expensive.

    Bboy AJ needs to take a step back and stop trying to pull out the E-hardass card. It doesn't impress anyone that you can swear on the internet and E-yell at people.

    That being said, the S2000 is rather max'd out from the factory. Your basic bolt on's like intake, header, exhaust are not going to make much power on the car. The S2000 does not respond to bolt on's like its little cousin RSX-S/Civic Si. You can build a fast N/A S2000 if you want to dump money into it, but that would require going well beyond bolt on's.

    Boost though... That is another story.

    I'm a diehard Phils fan, but I don't know about all that.

    Back on topic, does anyone know of any S2000 vs. WRX vids? I haven't seen many S2000's videos.

    Where do you get the sentiment that I'm yelling at anyone? Far from it. I called "BS" and that involves the use of "S". Okay. That must make me an "E-hardass", right? The official bodyguard would know, I'm sure.

    I agree. I've said it a million times.

    Start an MLB thread. I love talking MLB. And does anyone here do fantasy baseball? We should start a league, too.

    Oh, uh, back to cars.
