You don't have to be FI to kill an S2000. My proudest kill to date was an S2000 on a 0-60mph run from a light. I beat him (slightly) from the line and kept pulling away all the way to 60, where we both shut down. He was still just off my back bumper when we quit, though, so it was close.

the S2000's are actually very good matches for SVT's because they are plagued with the same low-end sluggishness that we are. Their power doesn't kick in until later....now, on a drag strip he probably would have passed me in the higher RPM's, but I'll still count this as a win.

im not starting anything, but a s2k is alot fast from 0 to 60 than a svtf. mine was from a roll so that different, i know that too. but it is very hard 2 get those car rolling from a start.

u guys have no hope for eaton s\c's. there can be pwer there.

the guy that tuned my car said "there. pwere there i just tured it very safe for you"

and i can beat older one cause i let some guys (w\ vettes) drive my car and they say it would beat them, but there vettes are older. but still its a kill.
pulse i got something up my sleeve soon.


and another thing i paid alot less than $2700 for that s\c

also, you only have 180 tq right now . . . tq accelerates you, hp just keeps you there.

toms stage 1 kit at $3,000 puts 200hp/200tq to the wheels on a fully stock engine. That extra 20tq would easily over-ride that extra 20hp you have.

not to mention neither of those would come close to touching a 3200 pound 345hp 350tq rwd corvette C5 so im really confused as to who you think you're fooling.

how did you go about getting a JRSC for less than 2700?

i find it hard to believe you got that SC and 3" pulley steeda intake,orp, mbrp exhaust central focus t\b, 42 lbs injecters for less than the 3650 it would cost to get toms stage 1 and go faster than you're going

im not trying to hate - just be reasonable and realistic. a jrsc is an awesome mod that will kick the piss out of most cars on the road but a 345hp/350tq c5 vette is out of the question. the highest hp i've seen out of any supercharged focus was 290 and the tq wasn't even close to that, whereas the right turbos will boost you well above 300 hp/tq easily on stock SVT internals

edit: and that was a fully tuned vortech SC, you're the highest JRSC i've heard of to date

High-end Roadsters
Vehicle...............0-60 (sec.)............... 1/4 Time (sec.)............... 1/4 Speed (mph)............... 60-0 (feet)
BMW M Roadster...5.60..................... 14.0 ................................98.8................................ 121
Honda S2000...... 5.90 ..................... 14.5 ................................96.5 ................................ 113
Porsche Boxster....6.30 ..................... 14.7 ................................ 96.8 ................................ 123
Mercedes SLK320..6.70 .....................15.0 ................................ 93.1 ................................ 112
Audi TT Roadster...7.00 ..................... 15.1 ................................ 90.1 .................................120


The S2000 is far from unattainable. With my mods and perhaps a poor driver behind the honda, you shouldn't have any reason to doubt my claims
