Doing this still requires rebuilding the entire engine and getting the head ported, just dont forget that. I say its not that hard b/c i have a full machine shop, engine and chassis dyno, and flow benches.

That engine you can pick up for $400-$500.

That turbo kit which did 275rwhp/262ftlbs that day after tuning will run you $3000 with full 3" exhaust from the turbo back and 18x12x3 core FMIC

Other costs like ECU, injectors, clutch you will will need anyway for your NA build.


Wanna buy one?

Yeah, I'd still rather drive one of the EVOs. The graphs are skewed for the high revs of the Honda.

Then again I've never driven an S2000. I got tired of having to wring the **** out of my Integra to get anywhere, but the S2000 is probably a different animal all together.

how are the graphs skewed? They are proportionate. What it does illustrate is that two cars with the same peak HP can be two totally different machines. It also illustrates that small N/A motors sucks.


As an official mt.net act: I declare raven21 a n00b and suggest he stop posting.

I understand they are proportianate, but the higher rev range would make it look like the EVO and STi motors fall on their face to someone that isn't paying attention to the ordinate axis.

To me, that is what peaky is, not making any power until WAAAAY up there. I thought you were trying to argue that the Honda was a "steady beast." I think we are trying to say the same thing, but from different points of view and with different terminology.

I too would much rather have a turbo 4 with torque all over the place than the stretched out powerband of the Honda. This is why I pointed out how important the area under the curve was, not for you, but for the less educated, like supernoob here.



I second the act.
