whats the specs on your s2k?



My car is stock.. but i'm planning to get the aem v2 intake to get 10hp prob around Christmas. The only thing I changed was the stock air filter and oil filter.. I replaced them with K&N filters and I use Mobile 1 synthetic car oil. So far so good it's daily drivable... my friends who bought sti's, m3, 350z, g35 all sold their cars b/c too much money for gas and 300hp in the city isn't daily drivable. I love my car so much, I'll never sell it. it's a legendary car, best 4 banger out there with class.


I don't think you would get 10HP from an intake on the s2k.

Those cars undriveable in the city? I think your friends just can't drive. I've known plenty of cars with plenty of power than gets driven daily.
We got 600HP Camaro, runs 10s, driven everyday. I've seen this car alot and it doesn't show any problems.
And several turbo Hondas with 400HP+ that are driven daily.



I also agree with you. how does having 400+ make your car undriveable on the streets?

IF that was so, why do ppl still buy euro super cars? its obviously not just to let them sit or REALLY go to track days. they drive them on the streets so everyone can see how baller they are/ stupid that they spent half a million dollars on a car that will never be used to its FULL potential.


yah my car makes around 300+ which is pretty quick for a 240 and i used to daily it.....with stiff coilovers springrates of 12/10(now i rock the jic which is 10/8) welded diff, full aero, loud exhaust, rollcage and when i used to pick up my sister from school i needed to take off my front bumper just to clear her schools parking lot... and then we got people complaining about driving evo's and sti's? pft girly crapy...get a real tuned car not no stock and then tell me if you can drive it on the road or not

Dollar for dollar, you can get more power out of a turbo car than you can any other type of car. Except maybe a V8 on huge amounts of nitrous. There was an article in modified mag on the merits and weaknesses of all motor, nitrous, supercharger, and turbocharger builds. In the end, they decided they liked the feel of all motor best, but it was impossible to get the real top end out of N/A, and that to build a high power N/A engine required lots more money than comparable power F/I cars. They also said, the predictable response of the N/A engine was best for drivability. However, N/A 4 cylinder engines top out generally around 300hp or so, you've got to turn somewhere else to get more power. They editors quickly decided that while being on the bottle is an easy and cheap way to make more power, it's better off to go another route since the bottle runs out. The real challenge to determine came down to turbo vs supercharger. In the end those chose turbo for the top end abilities and the fact that dual ball bearing turbos have almost virtually eliminated lag. So if you have the money to spend, then it's really no contest. Turbo charging is the way to go.

Well I live in the city and I have to pay 4 dollars per gallon for 91 octane. When I mean not daily drivable I don't me that the car has problems, daily drivable I mean as going to places to work or school and that a car that has over 300hp drinks gas like water.. I fill up my tank every 3 weeks and I drive to school everyday. I'm middleclass status so gas is a big problem for me as well. my car can run in high 13's.. 13.89 in a 1/4 mile.. Well I googled the aem v2 intake i was planning to get it says it gives 8-10hp boost. I wouldn't turbo my s2k, its perfect the way it is and I don't really race people and with all those stop signs and red lights in the way in the city. Depends which city you live in and the gas price over there..

When you modify a car you it doesnt necessarily lose gas mileage. 1000hp cars can get 28-30mpg, the same as 200hp car. Yup I get what you mean. Modifying your car to me is really starting to be pointless. Been in this game for a little less then 5 years and after i started to drive auto again I started to wonder why the hell people would want to modify their cars and drive manual. Its so much of a hassle at the end of the day when you tired from work.

Shit Im thinking about selling my car...(90 Talon Awd-500hp)...any takers?..lol and a Miata too.. might as well throw that in.

I guess you dont understand how car operates. The level of modification has little impact on your gas mileage. A vehicle from the factory has its preset limitations of fuel consumption A finer tune by pulling a bit more fuel out of the entire LTFT range will net you better fuel mileage. The amount of fuel a vehicle consumes remains constant. When modifying a car you are essentially giving the motor more oxygen to product more power. Now this is where fuel mileage comes into play. Say that a stock supra gets 20mpg. Now lets modify the car, add a larger turbo, cams, bigger injectors, fuel pump...etc etc. So now the supra is now magically a 1000hp vehicle. Since the turbo is much larger doesnt spool as fast as the stockers the car does not get into boost as fast or as much. If the car is not seeing boost the ECU will know not to inject more fuel. The same car will get the better gas mileage from the lag alone. Now even tho the car is 1000hp, it is 1000hp at WOT. So that particular fuel consumption remains constant. It uses the same amount of fuel to move the vehicles weight.

That brings us into another topic. Weight plays a large factor in fuel consumption as well as over all performance. Less weight means less power and fuel is needed to move the vehicle.

So short as sweet. A 1000hp car is only 1000hp at WOT. It still uses the same amount of fuel to move, with the exception to turbo size(larger turbo spooling later and giver you a much broader range in driving and cruising), a much finer tune from factory and weight all playing a specific role in reducing fuel consumption and increasing fuel economy.

Well I drive stick shift for the fun of the car b/c automatic gets to boring, and yes I drive automatics all the time when I know I have a long day of school and work. For my 1 hr classes, those are the nice cool weather days I want to drive stick in a convertible for preference. I never drive my s2k for long road trips, auto sedans are best and a lot roomer than my tiny car. And I didn't say that if you modify a car that you'll lose gas mileage, I'm comparing my s2k to v6 engines that eat up more gas than my car. My friend turbo'ed his jetta mk3 vr6, he still gets the same gas mileage.. but I've never seen a 1000hp car with 28/30 mileage, is it a hybrid? lol

lol fart cans... refer to like 20$ setups

get a SINGLE invidia exhaust for your s2k no need for dual since s2k would gain more power w/ a single
