Now THAT is how you do a build write-up!

Looking cool man. What happened to the Pro-drive center caps?

Still tring to figure out what to do with the caps
Have a lip ordered
Going to lower as soon as I get the fenders rolled
Intercooler, due to extreme heat and humidity in the Carolinas, just hook a small water pump up (mounts to the air pump behind bumper) and run lines from the bottom of the aftercooler.

Just using the MS movie maker... but I have a crappy camera.
I have 3 different pulleys all SOS, I have the base pulley the 10 psi pulley and I have a 12 psi pulley...keeping that one in reserve, just in case I run out of things to do.

Well after following CodyStrife's build, I decided that the base boost would/could be a little disappointing. So I went a little higher on the boost and not regrets at all, it is just a little scary now. It is like starting all over...driving really conservative...don't want to hit VTEC in the middle of a turn, etc.

I agree with lowering it but it still looks good.

Won't know for sure until I take it to a tuner. But the previous owner was at 350, a very conservative tune. It is pretty rich, so I am going to get it tuned in a couple weeks. I will put up the chart when I am done. I have the 12psi pulley, just in case I want to crank it up a notch.

Anxious to see the DYNO numbers!

Any reason why you chose a turbo over the super charger?

I have been kicking around doing the the Rotrex Centrifugal Supercharger. I drove one last Tuesday and it was amazing! Low end power was amazing, who'd of thought on an S!

He was pushing 370HP but the big thing was the torque!

Sweet set up though I like the bold rims! Not for me but I love when people change it up!

It is a Comptech SC with 10 psi; pulled 330 on the dyno. That is a very conservative tune since I drive it every day. The Rotrex is a great set up, pretty sure you will enjoy it all the time. I could not imagine going back to stock at this point.

I'll agree. 300ish whp in a s2000 is how they should come from the factory. They feel gutless with anything less. I'm ready to turn up the boost on my s2k to make it feel like my 550whp integra.
