Watch This Custom S2000 Get a $1,000 Carbon Fiber Diffuser

By -

These guys are living the gearhead’s good life in California with their modified Honda S2000 squad.

In this riveting episode of Illiminate, the guys go to get their eyebrows done. Just kidding. Well, they do, actually. They take their Nissan R32 GT-R to do it too. They also eat fast food.

But that’s neither here nor there. Today, we’re more interested in Randy, Kevin, and Thomas installing a new carbon fiber diffuser on Kevin’s Honda S2000. On top of the R32 and the S2K, we see the guys clowning around and working on their other cars too, including a Nissan S13 240SX and a Scion FR-S. Not a bad stable if you ask us.

But back to the S2000. First, the guys shave down the rear wheel arches on the bumper so it can fit with the custom wheels. Then, after taking three men to mount the diffuser (‘there goes $1,000’ someone says, pretending that it fell off), they bolt it to the car. Needless to say, the results are stunning.

For an aftermarket diffuser, and a $1,000 carbon fiber one at that, it looks really tasteful and natural on the car. Set against the matte gray paint, the polished carbon unit looks like it could’ve come straight from the factory. Sure, the hardtop, lack of badging, big exhausts and slammed suspension say otherwise, but altogether, this is one very well-done S2K.

If you’re looking for an in-depth build profile, you’ll have to check out some other videos on Illiminate’s channel. Because once the bumper is done, Randy turns to the camera and says “the boys and I are gonna go skate right now,” leaving the Honda in the garage. Luckily, the roadster makes another brief appearance at the end of the video.

When the guys go out for food, Randy zooms in on the Honda’s rear end and yells out “that diffuser tho!” We agree, it looks great. And while we wish that there was more about Kevin’s S2000 in this video, we really can’t complain. It’s always great to see a bunch of young guys hanging out and having a good time, especially when their world revolves around their cars. Isn’t that what life’s about anyway?
