Default Raced an s2000..

Last night I raced a s2k with I/H/E. Ended up pulling several car lengths on him, just walked him every race. Now I am starting to wonder what whp I'm at. I was thinking around 190-200.

This was at 10psi on my greddy. Any input?

/ricer thread over.

Well you have to consider the power to weight differences as well as power curves. Im just saying, from what Ive heard at your psi level that sounds about right.

I had fun CRUSHING American Iron cars, blown Cobras, Formula Firebirds, and my nemesis SS Camaro at Hallett yesterday. Those dude's had to be confused when I steam rolled them on the straights in addition to closing 100-10' on corner entry , lol.

I ran a 1:30.1 yesterday, which is 2-seconds slower than I should be going. That's a front half American Iron (non CMC) qualifying time.

Dan who was fastest yesterday ran a 1:28.

I smoked an s2000 from a roll with a shitty tune on 7psi. I'd guess I was makin 170whp. I can guess hp on a 1.6 with a greddy. Maybe 170 at 10psi? Maybe?

IIRC I read a comparo of the S2K and a MSM a long time back. The (140WHP?) MSM had the S2K covered most of the time, only really loosing ground on longer straights.

S2Ks only make about 155TQ. And that's from 6000 to 8500. It makes a neato HP/L number due to the RPM, but it's just not going to pull hard in a car on the wrong side of 2500LBs. I swear those things would probably be faster with a K20 even if they did not look as cool on paper.

I bet with a 10PSIG Greddy you are at just under 200WHP, and the bolt-ons he had just wont do any good as a result.

S2K with driver is going to weigh in at approx 2950 lbs, your miata weighs in around 2350 pounds with driver. It won't take much to stay with a stock S2K. But don't bash the S2K's engines, they are amazing power plants.

Here is a link of a bone stock F20C engine in my miata, it can be a wicked performer it it is not pulling the extra boat anchor weight of an s2000. my car weighs in at 2420 with me in the car, a hard top and a beefy trailer hitch (fail).

Of course I did, the dude was pretty butt hurt that he got pulled on that hard by a miata.

My car is a pig, ac/ps/pw etc. And a hardtop a turbo kit and tools in the back of my car.

My timing map is also very very conservative, need det phones so I can risk adding timing. For now I'm just going to up the boost for some more powah.

10 psi with the typical bolt on breathing mods and tune should be around 200 whp. That's about what a stock-ish S2000 can do, however you car is around 500 lbs lighter. Destroying S2K's gets easy and old pretty quick.* Next time find a Corvette to pick on. Much harder.

*It should be noted that every once in a while, you'll run across a 500+ whp turbo S2K. Those are very fast.

I outran a S2k with a 125shot, the guy said the car has 320+whp, and I was about a car behind a F4i (600) bike last night from a 20 kick.

Straight line is gay though.

What do you have on your miata?

Keeping up with a 600 bike you better have a badass setup otherwise I'm calling bs.

If you go to you tube and look for miata vs honda .. it may be the 3rd or 4th video down, its my red miata vs a new s2000 i was at 186 whp and 160 wtq at 11 psi.. and as you can see the s2000 is behind. then i went up to 215 whp and 198tq and like everyone else here says they are not worth racing any more.

My buddy has a pretty close to stock AP2, intake and exhaust only. HE put down 181 and 140 on a dynojet.

Evo3 16g on 18psi. It's a older bike, and they run mid/high 11's.

Cody Strife can vouch for my Miata being pretty damn fast.

Those #s are only attainable with a built s2k motor right?
