Super Street S2000 Build Part 5: The Unveiling!
‘Week to Wicked’ S2000 wraps up with some killer visual mods and a date with the dyno.
It might seem impossible, but the crew at Super Street actually pulled it off. In just five days and 120 hours, they’ve put together one killer AP1 S2000 build. And after what we like to imagine were many sleepless nights, it was finally time to pull the covers off this latest “Week to Wicked” build. But first, they needed to, uh, put a cover on it.
A project this interesting deserves its own special car cover, so Covercraft provided them with just that. But it also covers the exterior mods SS bestowed this S2000 with, so thankfully it was removed for the rest of the segment.
To up the visual ante, a Seibon carbon fiber hood and trunk lid were installed. The coolest thing about these parts, however, is that they’re dry carbon, which gives them a nice matte look. With no fiberglass involved in the construction, they’re also incredibly light.
To cap the whole thing off, SS dialed up Konig Wheels for a set of their newly redesigned Ampliform wheels in 17×8 and 17×9 sizes. Finished in a dark metallic graphite, the new shoes provide a nice contrast to the carbon bits. Finishing off the project is a set of ultra-sticky Falken FK510 tires.
All that was left at this point was to toss this S2000 on the dyno and see what she could do. After a few pulls, the project registered 260 hp at the wheels, a healthy 70 hp increase over stock. Not to shabby for a 137k mile car with a stock cat and nothing more than bolt on parts. So maybe it is possible to build a wicked S2000 in just five days, after all. With the right resources, of course.
