Thanks man!  :thumbup:
They made so much difference it's not even funny. Much more stopping power, I had no idea they would feel this different.

Well considering I've had to shoulder my car twice just at highways speeds suggest stock is to small for stock.

Hasn't really been much to update lately until this passed 2 weekends.
I picked up a set of rear bumper valences around 2 years ago, and a set of fender flares this summer, and finally had the urge to install both.
I cut out and re welded the fenders, painted all the pieces, and just finished installing them today.
The look might not be for everyone, but I love it.  :thumbup:  It's subtle and semi-OEM (keeps the same lines basically, just wider).

- Extended studs and wheel spacers are on the way.

Will you eventually have them molded into the body, or planning to stick with the riveted look.

I might paint the bolts black @malamikigo but it will stay "bolted on".
It never looks proper when I've seen it moulded. If I get tired of this look I have a more expensive back up plan haha But as of now, I think it looks pretty evil.

Wheel spacers on the way and I'm going to make some CF "fins" to go in the diffuser, on either side of the lower brake light.

Thanks man!

Next, I'm going to work on making things in the engine bay a bit nicer, as well as a new battery relocate/ trunk setup.

Looks good, I like the lines on that kit.  This car has come a long ways, nice work.

Thanks! Yeah it has. Except for having an exhaust (which has been changed), I got it all stock.
The diffuser, the over fenders, and the bumper valences are all 3 different brands. Pretty cool how it turned out and (to me) looks like it all fits together.

I'll post some "real" pictures as soon as a few more things are finished up.

So how long before we get to see some E85 dyno runs?

This is probably the only s2000 I've actually like the look of.

Nice car, not my type of car at all, but I've never liked small convertible cars.

Thanks @MrPlow!
Thanks @Schmiesus!
Thanks @killerb09, not a convertible anymore though  :P Haha It's basically a coupe, roof pretty well never comes off.

Not running E85 any time soon @aba16v haha. Engine has over 200k so it's actually being kept pretty tame right now (compared to where I'd like to be). I've been talking to a place down south about building my spare engine for making some real power but... well you know how the $$$ is right now so, it's on hold.

I've done all the normal/small things (besides turbo) I'd like to do to it as of right now, so the only things left are the bigger dollar jobs (diff swap, engine build, and eventually trans swap) but that's all down the road. People think I'm crazy for wanting to do even more to this car but really, there isn't anything out there I would rather have right now so this is my baby haha.

I've been playing around with the 'Anti-Lag Launch Control' feature of the Haltech and it sounds pretty badass.
I'll have to take a video of it and post it up since I have no dyno videos.
Need to play around with some boost control features also, as I can't even hit Vtec  in 1st or 2nd without losing all hopes of traction haha

Short term plans (this year) are:
- Final battery relocate and make a nice Fuse/Relay/Circuit Breaker holder.
- Paint a bunch of items and clean up the bay
- Install my steel DSS driveshaft
- Get front lip and side diffusers
- Build a few custom items for more aggressive look
- Wheel spacers for rear
- 3" mid pipe
- Valve seals are leaking so going to pull the valve cover off to repaint it, and at that time check valve guides. If guides seem okay, I'll toss some seals in, if they are worn I'll swap my heads and then probably throw a bit more boost at it. Then I'll get it on the dyno to get some actual numbers. It's really safe right now and only 9psi so (based on other peoples builds) I'm only in the 300/350 (max) range.

Lots more stuff to do, when isn't there!?  :stupid: :stupid:

It's a disease, you'll never be finished. Boost by gear, no lift shifting, launch control, and lower charge temps from cooler fuel will make for a deadly car though ;)   

From an outsiders perspective S2Ks seem ridiculous, who would pay 15K for a hair dressers honda when that's 3.2 boxster / 3L twin turbo BMW money? It's a very special car with amazing drivers inputs, and we all know how german cars can be. Looking forward to seeing a bigger turbo with flex fuel next winter  :thumbup:

Boost by gear, flat shift, and launch control are all available on the Haltech. Only played with the Anti-lag Launch so far.
As for a larger turbo, it's not really necessary any time soon as my current setup is sustainable to around 650/700hp.
Flex fuel is definitely an option when I get a new fuel rail though. Been looking into that an other feeling setups.

** Also, I didn't pay 15K for the car so putting money in to have it look the way I want and be a bunch of fun is okay to me. Haha

Wasn't able to get any work done today, but I went out for a rip and took some pictures.  :thumbup:
