Dude that is a badass old vacuum. LOL...

Looks kind of Art Deco.

Back to the subject at hand.
I would get a turn key SOS blower kit for you car. They are precisely engineered, very reliable and the car can be driven everyday with their base kit.
It is a very good deal overall and if I can ever sell my freaking house I plan to get second S and drive it to them for the install.
Good luck with your forced induction search.

Cheers...

Being serious for one moment that's what I would do as well.

Note that SOS http://www.scienceofspeed.com/produc...erchargers.asp sells a belt driven supercharger for the S2000, not a turbo. Probably a better choice for this engine and car.

You don't want to shop for a forced induction setup for an S2000 by price, trust me. Talk about the most expensive money you ever saved.....

Only 100 hp? thats over 40% increase over stock. That would give you almost and 8:1 weight to power ratio compared to 12:1 stock.

Thats a lot sir.

If you swap the head gasket you can get 400hp.

why would swapping the head gasket bump up the hp?

Because a thicker hg lowers the compression. I personally am not a fan of this method and feel like you can make more reliable hp with the factory hg. 400 is possible and reliable with a good tuner and pump gas on a stock hg and you get to keep the factory quench area.

400 on pump with stock head gasket is reliable? What would you need for that like 11psi? I wouldnt think so but I know you have done boost so Ill take your word for it.

So a thicker hg makes it less reliable? What other negative impact is there when using a thicker hg?

I wouldnt think it would make it less reliable. Its thicker so I would think it would make it more durable. But hey what do I know lol.

Using a thicker head gasket to lower the comp, so you can in turn run boost, It is less reliable because a the thicker head gasket will be more prone to failure. But if your HP goal is 400, you probably wouldn't be running enough boost for that to be an issue. But 400whp can be achieved on stock compression so there's no need for thicker head gasket, which in my opinion would be the best route to go.

how is a thicker head gasket more prone to failure? from everything i heard the thicker head gasket is safer for running boost becuase it lowers the compression

It also changes the quench area.

400 is totally possible and reliable on stock hg... Just up some boost! 12-13lbs probably, Dont forget your not seeing that amount of boost until redline, so your car is not always seeing that.

I've got a custom inline pro turbo kit but if I could do it all over again I would go with a Full-Race kit/manifold.

the gredy turbo kit to my knowledge would be the best bang for the buck kit.

gets consistent really high recommendations for good build quality and a really nice "starter" turbo build.

But, I guess it really depends on what your "buck" consists of. Greddy is by far the cheapest (cheapest of kits worth considering) but is fairly limited on upgradability and if you are seeking 375whp+ numbers you'll need to replace the e-manage eventually anyways.

All has to be taken from the perspective of what the ultimate goal is.

Do not forget....the most important thing you need to take into consideration is tuning tuning tuning!!!! Find a local tuner in your area that is familiar with s2000's. That is key! Also if you get a greddy ditch the emanage....and start investing into an AEM EMS or another stand alone ECU. With that you should achieve satisfying numbers out of that kit. If your a HP freak. Greddy turbo kit Sir, is not for you.
