New Member, I have been wanting an S2000 since the day they came out.

Hi All,

I am new to the S2000 club and have just purchased my first S2000.
I purchased a 2004 Rio Yellow Pearl with 21,000 miles. It is bone stock which is what I wanted for my introduction into this car line.

I am very interested in a future supercharger or turbo charger upgrade and will begin cruisin this site looking for what seems to be the all around best set up. I want absolute Honda dependability but with a good bit more power.

Any and all advice is welcome.

Thanks,
Thomas

Congrats and welcome! Seems that superchargers are more reliable than turbos. Post some pics when you get a chance and find the secret compartment!!

Thumbs up Yellow

Another "Nickle" and you could have gotten "Yellow"!
Welcome! Nice S!

Congrats and welcome!! Get to know your vehicle first before modding. Your turbo lurks at 6000 rpm, it's called vtec.

Thanks all. I have been cruising the S2000 forums getting a good idea of what and how others have personalized their S2k's.

I think I will leave mine stock for some time. I have had twin turbo charged 300zx, turbo charged miata and a 2500HD diesel turbo. I love turbo's but I really am looking forward to the Honda reliability and just cruising around with my wife. We can actually hold a conversation in this car while riding around with the top down.

The cars top not the wifes. LoL

LOL. Top down... haha.

Some of my favorite mods are the ones that aren't that noticable.
May i suggest Keyhole Covers.

And perhaps LED interior lights. They look great.
and of course, OEM front lip and perhaps rear 'lip spoiler' or 'wing spoiler'

or even upgrading stereo components if you're into that stuff. All little things you can do to keep your hands busy.
