Default Pictures of my Buddys S2000...(huge pics!)

I figured you guys would appreciate this the most, completely custom built S2000 thats been in the shop for like 4 years but it looks mean! the engine is almost done as you can see, but the builder has been a douche and is flaking. not much work left but there are so many custom pieces that neither of us want to put it together and screw it up...

Interior is completely custom built, and all carbon fiber. sound system is amazing crystal clear sound and no rattles at any volume. they did some great work, just the engine builder...

What's the engine been built with? I'm going to assume it's no longer using stock sleeves.

Too bad hot air from the radiator is feeding the turbo...
But other than that, looks like a solid damn build.

Is it any wonder the Honda head out flows the Miata?

I know, I bet if the camera man would have taken that pic with his camera further up, looking down into it more, you could almost see the entire valve. Even at the angle it was taken you can see over half of it.

im not sure of the exact engine specs ill have to ask about that.

the head is definitely a piece of art and im very jealous! the paint is a custom mixed blue so im not sure of the name.

i have no idea how the intake is going to be routed but im sure the filter will be moved away from the radiator. at any rate its all being cooled by a huge W/A intercooler...

i think more impressive than the engine is the interior and sound work! everything is absolute beautiful. the hard top lining is all suede, the a pillars suede. the steering wheel was wrapped in carbon fiber, there is a just released kenwood screen and a kenwood dvd player molded into the dash. leather with italian stitching, its all very nice work. the engine guy though.....

i can never figure out why people do custom body and paint work BEFORE finishing up the mechanical work. all it takes is one dropped wrench or wayward belt buckle to ruin that custom paint...

I personally think the car is really nice, maybe not to everyone's style. I think the wide body is nice, and the motor is certainly rediculous awesome. I'm not one for interior work but I can see a lot of money was put in there.

One note though. I hope he has like...SOLID engine mounts. The turbo is resting on that cross member and if the motor torques in the direction i think it would, it's gonna knock that turbo around and put a lot of stress on the manifold.

^yep. I'm also thinking the only option for intake is a mesh screen over the compressor inlet. Unless it's just the angle of the pics it doesn't look like there's room for anything else.

Looks pretty nice.

I think he'll be sorry he's going with a W/A intercooler though.......
