    Hmm I don't know, the guy claims to have beat a viper, ford gt and c6 zo6 as well so if that's true than ya the kill is believable. What was lame was that guy that kept claiming he needs to run a modded evo like it is somehow superior to the previous cars he listed as kills.

    Thats ok let him get his hopes up, wait till he gets ahold of a modded one or a WHIPPLED/KBed Snake. His like 4 banger will get its feelings hurt!

    Obviously he is going to blow off a car with less rwhp and weighs almost 1500 pounds more.

    That S2K sounds pretty wicked.

    From the sound of it, his car probably is a low 11 second car that traps about 130mph.

    I know of a Cive Type R that traps 126mph in the 1/4 mile (same engine as S2000 but with 197bhp stock), that'd be enough to walk a GT500 in a straight line. Only difference being that it probably drives like a pig and won't be very durable. Whereas the GT500 should be able to keep on producing 500bhp for 100,000 miles with only oil and filter changes.

    But hay all it takes is money, I know of a old Fiat 126 that'd wipe the floor with most things (high 9's/low 10's) but you wouldn't guess it by looking at it.

    he has no dyno numbers. he has no track numbers. at least none in the first 5 post. anything can be made to look fast on the internet.


    example(true story):

    driving home last night, i hit a red light and a mustang gt(05 and up) pulls up beside me, then on the other side a rx8 pulls up beside me. light turns green, i get a decent launch, not hard just a little faster than normal and the mustang is right beside me. the rx8 is late but seems to be drawing back when i hammer down. shift to second start pulling both cars. hit 60 and lay off i am 2 cars up on the mustang a 3-4 cars up on the rx8. sweet!


    yes i was in my ranger. yes the other cars are not racing. those facts would ruin the true story though.:pepper: side note i pulled away from a amv8 as well last night. well untill he hit 2nd.:burnout: paper plates and everything. talk about an beautiful car. those astons are outstanding.:beer:

    Not sure if it's his car or not... but click on the pictures link in his signature and it takes you to a page where a supercharged s2000 is making 450 rwhp... which is MORE than enough to beat the cars listed given the weight of an s2000.

    my statement came from this question with no answer(at least none on the 1st page) from the driver. my point is the guy in the s2000 is either too scared or too stupid to race at a legal drag strip for me to even question the ligitimacy of his story.

    Does anybody know how fast he is in the 1/4?
    Sounds like a pretty sick s2000 but there arent that many of them around, most Ive seen stick to basic boltons and use their cars in road racing or autocross.
    Like someone said above-anything can be done with enough money. Theres a member on this site that has a Cobra R and puts out over 480rwhp n/a(soon to be more) and weights at just over 2800 pounds, that would be a good match between the 2 of them, however he never drags the car only road races and is really good at it too!:thumbsup:

    2000 Vortech Honda S2000

    The (mod bug) symptoms started a few months after Phil had purchased the car. It started with a Comptech aluminum strut tower bar (no longer on the car). Tinkering under the hood didn’t stop, as Phil began polishing bits and pieces of aluminum throughout the car like the intake manifold, valve cover, and fuel rail. He even went so far as to polish the oil pan and differential cover! Little by little he personalized the car, improving the appearance as well as the performance. Power-boosting parts also started to make their way onto the car starting with a cold air intake. Serious power increases came after Phil installed a Vortech supercharger that brought the car up to 361 rwhp. Still not satisfied at having one of the fastest S2000’s in the country, he added a smaller ASP Billet supercharger pulley, larger fuel injectors, Toda stainless steel headers, ported and polished heads, and an Amuse stainless steel exhaust. All of this is controlled with an AEM Total Engine Management System. When all is accounted for, Phil’s S2000 now puts out 450 rwhp and 265 lb-ft torque.

    Keeping the power in check, Wade drilled the stock brakes and added racing pads, stainless steel brake lines, and Motul 600 brake fluid. A Comptech adjustable sway bar sharpens the handling, as do the Toyo Racing tires, 235/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear. Lightweight Volk Racing LE28 wheels replace the stock set.

    Exterior modifications are minimal and subtle with most of the changes focusing on the performance of the car. A custom stainless steel grill and painted taillights are the only exterior upgrades. On the inside, boost and temperature gauges are the only difference from a stock S2000, although a racing seat is occasionally installed. That’s not to say anyone will underestimate the car. The legend of Phil’s S2000 has spread throughout the S2000 and Southern California car communities. The abundant number of Ferrari owners in SoCal look the other way at stop lights, and other exotic car owners aware of the car’s performance seem hesitant to put their car’s reputation on the line – probably the best decision for anyone owning an Italian car not wanting to be embarrassed by a lowly Honda! Having been in the car and felt how hard it can pull, I can attest that this car can pump as much or more adrenaline into your veins as any other car out there. The acceleration leaves your neck straining, fighting to not be pressed against the seat, and the sound of the open cockpit and ferocious exhaust fill your ears.

    As always, Phil isn’t quite done with the car. He is in the process of working with exhaust specialist Jack Burns to develop an exhaust system for supercharged S2000’s. Obviously, he’s still inflicted with the disease. However, he is doing his part to keep it from happening to others. Phil frequently recommends that other owners stay away from modifying their cars because once they start they won’t stop. He wishes someone would have given him that advice, although deep down he probably wouldn’t have it any other way.

    He put 2 car lengths on a stock 116mph car and also managed to beat 2 125mph+ cars. Right. The difference between a 125mph car and a 116mph car on the street in a dig race to 125 is a whole shitload more than 2 car lengths. :rollseyes

    Well, I wouldnt believe it if I hadnt seen his car in person. His car is definitely a sleeper. It just looks like an S2000 with rims, nothing fancy. I honestly thought he was over 450 whp though, I thought i heard somewhere close to 550, but I could be wrong. Even if he is at 450 whp he's gonna easily pull a GT500. I believe his car weighs less than 2800lbs as well. If he didnt pull the GT hard its because he didnt want too, his car is very capable of doing so.

    If you read the post, then read the web article, it appears to have been written by the same person which is a little shady.

    Will a 450 rwhp S2000 with a power/weight of 5.71-ish slam a GT500 of Evolution-matching 563 rwhp* with a power/weight of 6.92? Of course, no question there, not even kinda close. A new and unmodded GT500 should lose by more than 2 cars at that speed against something like that.

    Therefor I call BS (regarding the supposed race, not the car).

    I'll be honest I don't know much about the Honda engines, but 450rwhp from a 2.0 with a supercharger. Nah I don't beleive that, not on anything resembling factory internals or regular octane fuel.

    First off I didn't know that bolt on s2000 supercharger from Vortec could flow that much air. As a fast Honda that nothing new. There is a Hatch here in ohio that has been lighten up and is putting 550whp to the wheel of last year with a built bottom end and turbo. My buddy barly beat him on import day in his 10 second Omni. They were both trapping in the low 130's. There was another car though that surprized me was a Eagle Summit that traps 148mph this year. He had one those 2.0 turbo DSM motors in it with a larger intercooler, larger turbo, and different fuel management. Other than what was under the hood the car didn't look that great.
