Major S2000 Build Question

I currently have a 2005 S2000. Next summer I plan on picking up a second car and creating a massive build. Money is not much of a concern.

I have been thinking about building a Toyota Supra, pumping it up to 800 - 1000hp. I've started to realize however I could just keep my current S2000 and rebuild her from the ground up, and pick up a second car as a daily driver.

What kind of power can you get out of an S2000 using a turbo set up and rebuilding the engine with stronger internals ETC? I also would like an Idea how fast that car would be via acceleration and quarter mile.

Lastly, how drivable would she be with 600+ hp? I Plan on building the suspension, wide body kit, massive rear tires to stick to the road.

As well as any Idea on price? Could a shop put together a monster for 50 - 100K or would I be looking at more then 100K to make my S2000 a supra killer.

Or would you suggest just getting a Supra?

Thanks for your help guys. I need to start piecing things together so I can get working on this!

I'm not a teenager... I'm an adult and make good income as an Option trader. I plan on starting up my own Hedge fund once I finish my CFA and can register myself with the Alternate Investment Management Association...

My question is honest. I have easily found lots of information regarding supra builds, prices, HP and numbers. I have not had an easy time finding out information about the S2000 and the local customs shop in Calgary also doesn't have much of a clue as they are talking out of there ***.

The supra appeals to me because I can make a silent killer! A fun weekend car that will destroy Lamborghini, Ferrari, Ford GT ETC without having to cough up the maintenance costs of an exotic.
I love my S2000 however and if It's possible to get numbers upwards of 700HP as the S2000 is a much lighter beast It theoretically should have similar performance as a 1000 hp Supra in a package twice as fun.

I would appreciate some honest advise, thank you!

Try the forced induction forum at www.S2KI.com

I believe that there are some roadable cars built to 6-700 whp. I think that they are doing better than 160 mph in the half mile.

I do not believe that there is a Calgary sub-forum there but Ottawa and Vancouver have sub-forums in the North America districts.

sorry about the zitts-be-gone but you struck a familiar chord.

the S2000 will deliver true supercar performance if modified appropriately. so will a supra. and, you can spend enough to deliver some modicum of reliability. i'm sure you know the old formula about speed, money, reliability and economy?

why not a camaro or mustang? if you have a $100,000, why not just about anything?

i just don't understand 600 HP on the street? i mean, what's the point? it's just a waste if you can't use it every time you drive it.

"A fun weekend car that will destroy Lamborghini, Ferrari, Ford GT ETC without having to cough up the maintenance costs of an exotic."

thought money was no object. you want to ride, it is going to cost you $$$. you want to ride faster, it is going to cost more $$$$$$. if you build a 1000 HP supra, or a 600 HP S2000, count on a few extra maintenance items. good luck with build, how-some-ever you go.

best,

bb

You can get that kind of power out of the S but don't think it would be to streetable.
