me and my friend both drove really moded V6 accord both in white and same body kits rims (the hole package) well they were fast but I sold mine and now have a 1.8t now the thing is he already ordered his S2000 considering that car is so expensive he will probably be stock for a while but by the time he gets his car my car will have the folowing: neuspeed or 3'' atp down pipe, high flow cat to match, eurosport exhaust, APR 93octane chip, cold air intake, Neuspeed turbo inlet, turbosx bypass, and mabye better plugs.
now will I have any chance with him at all, like mabye rolling or 50-70? or will he always be in front of my? (ohh yeea he dosent know how to drive stick yet)

Re: moded 1.8t vs S2000 Stand a chance? (George Bush)

yeah maybe till about 30mph then he will smoke you so bad....
0-60 less than 5(4.8 I think) ... and that thing handles realy well. If you want to even compete you will have to do some realy real serious mods.. maybe APR stgIII or something like that, and still I am not sure of your chances.
But if you friend decides to put a super charger on that thing... you might as well hang a picutre of him on you wall and worship him

The S2000 is pretty fast, and i believe it does 60mph in a around 5 secs, if not a little under. I have never driven one but I've had a few of them chasing behind my back and they managed to keep up at lower speed, under 100mph. However, I think the S2000 lacks midrange and high speed stability.

O right... your friend will be in trouble then. The engine of the S2000 is tricky, the car wouldn't go particularly fast unless high rev (well over 5000rpm) is maintained. Heel & Toe is a MUST. If your friend is inexperienced in manual gear shift, then he will have a hell lot to learn until he can utilize his new car's power. Speaking of transimission, the S2000 has an awesome gearbox i heard.

All you need to do is drop a turbocharger or supercharger to fix the lack in torque. Those Honda I-4's have tons of potential; especially the S2000.
Change the manifold, stronger rods, headers, camshaft, CF airbox on the S2000 you have a car that has top end strength from the beginning and after you have a nice nice torque curve!!!
You gotta complete the picture also with 10lb tank of nitrous!!! Overkill top end!!!
Whew!!! Vroom Vroom at 9000 rpms!!!

0-60 in 5.6 seconds is pretty Damn quick.... 120hp/L... 9000rpm... its like a freaking motorcycle! itll run i think a 13.9 or low 14.1/14.2 ... with enough mods u can stand a chance on a straigtaway.... if its on the twisties then forget about it.. he'll eat u for lunch.

Re: moded 1.8t vs S2000 Stand a chance? (George Bush)

i have a 1.8t with about 220hp and 245 lbs of torque. ive driven a stock s2000. there not that fast. only after 6500 rmp will it go. if your friend cant drive it will take him a while to learn that car. handling is ausome but thats the only good thing i think about that car. it has no pick up at all. also racing is all about driver. i beat s2000 all the time. it doesnt mean my car is faster i just know how to get the most power out of my car and most drivers dont know that.

Mugen "race" chip (race only... but ignore that)... lowers to VTEC point... walla short term fix.
However, if he has Nitrous and if he KNOWS how to shift like a pro (which he's not, not yet at least)... he could shoot while shifting... darn, one wrong move or delay basically screws the engine... whew... That's an out of the box cheater's mod. Cheating torque with NOS.
It's in a way forgiving b/c you have so much rpms to work with 9000 rpms.

S2000s run high 13s in the quarter with an experienced driver.
I run high 13s in the quarter...
Its all about driver. The S2000 is a hard car to laucnh (just like ours are). The shift points need to be perfect, the engine needs to be kept on a boil, everything needs to work in unison to make a fast pass on either cars. So, having said that, the best driver will win. (as long as the 1.8T has the same mods as mine or more)
