2001 Honda S2000

What is something really notable about it? Horsepower, rare or special modification, something nobody else has done to theirs?

This is the first S2000 in Canada to have the M&M Honda Hyper Wide-Body Kit. The engine is powered by a CT supercharger mixed in with other components from Science of Speed. And it’s got custom everything; everything in that engine bay was customed and were probably the first modifications made to the car.

A few months after I got the car its was dyno-tuned at 370 wheel horsepower, but with its set-up, it’s capable of 400-450 wheel horsepower. I just haven’t had the chance to make it back to the dyno-tuner guys since we’ve been building for the show at SEMA this year.

My wheels are custom-made in Japan and it took 4 months to make them and get them to the U.S. and pick them up since I’m living in Canada. So they’ve been imported twice basically for me.  They are the M1 Work Meister wheels and are extremely wide for the S2000. They are running 265 Yokohama tires on them and the wheels themselves are close to 12 as far as the width in the rear. The fronts are 10.5.

Why did you build your car the way you did?

I built it like this cause I’m inspired by fighter jets. Coming from Alaska we have an airshow there every year. So I’ve seen a lot of fighter jets and I really love the design. That’s why I gave it a military look

Are you done with it? If not, what's next?

No, I’m not quite done with it because this car actually symbolizes my life. It’s an on-going process and all though you might have worked the big stuff through, there are still details to improve on. I’m just going to fine-tune the details and I’ll just let that be a surprise for the future.

What's your favorite thing about the type of car you have?

The s2000 platform, how could you go wrong? It’s a 2-door car, not much room, it might be small but you get the 6-speed gear shifter and plus you get a convertible top. 9000 RPM. It’s just a fun car to drive through the road with.

What's your favorite thing to DO with your car?

My favorite thing to do with the car is putting smiles on kids’ faces and everyone that is able to see it in real life.

If you HAD to start over with the same car and do it all again, what would you do differently?

I probably would not do anything differently. I think I did things strategically the way I wanted to from the first place. I already had in mind that I wanted to get a car that has been discontinued, abandoned, and I wanted to give it life and that’s what I did. I had a creative path for it and now it’s really there.
