Obsessed Garage’s Dream Build (Video)
Matt Moreman of Obsessed Garage takes us through the extensive modifications and tuning of his Honda S2000.
If you haven’t come across Obsessed Garage before, then you’re about to meet the mind of Matt Moreman (Money2536 on the S2ki.com forums). In this video from his YouTube channel, Moreman takes us in depth through his stunning S2000 dream car build.
Often people flippantly joke about having Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, but Moreman has actually been diagnosed. The reality is that it’s a serious medical condition that can ruin peoples lives. However, rather than being trapped by it, Matt has used discipline, focus, and organization to turn his garage into his place of sanity. As a result, his projects are carefully and beautifully built. That’s matched by his ability to share that information with his trademark focus.
In this case, it’s the 2008 Berlina Black CR he bought with just 11,000 miles on it. His first modification was to install Ohlins DFV dampers. From that jumping off point his modifications to the suspension are extensive, to say the least. Impressively, the only tweak he needed to make for the resulting stance of the car is to roll the fenders a little.
Under the hood, Moreman is running a Kraftwerks Supercharger. When he put it on the dyno, the car showed 404 hp at the wheels and around 260 ft-lbs of torque. To go with that he’s made a big upgrade throughout the whole braking system. With those upgrades matched to the Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires on the car, Moreman assures us:
“This car will rip your frickin’ face off the under breaking the way it’s set up now.”
We’ve just scratched the surface here on his estimated $70,000+ build. With 35 minutes of dense information in the video, it’s worth grabbing your beverage of choice and settling in to learn more.
