Default Cevin's Yelllow AP1 Build

Hello everyone! This is my Build thread to document my progress in building my track and weekend weapon, my new (to me) 2003 Spa Yellow S2000.

i flew up the 3rd of February, 2016 in response to a Craigslist add i have found for an s2000, I'm very particular with my cars and this one seemed to be a winner, look great in the add, one owner, Factory Hardtop, and 90,000 miles.

it took a little convincing to have the seller see me, due to me asking to fly up the day he posted the add, but this is the s2000 i have been looking for, at the price i wanted to pay.

i have been very involved in the Euro-car community for sometime now (and still am, as i Daily a B8.5 6MT Audi S4)

cars i have owned in the past: 2012 Golf R (highly tuned and first car i tracked)



Build thread for those interested: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...vin-s-R-Thread

and my current S4( tuned by GIAC,(388AWHP) on Bilstein PSS10's w/ AWE track exhaust)





and the new member of the family (the day i picked her up and drove her 8 hours home):



and when she arrived home



and in her new parking spot =)





Current Purchased Performance Mods:

Enkei 17x9 ET 45 in F1 silver Mounted with 255/40/17 RS-3's
Stoptech Stainless steel brake lines


Current Cosmetic Mods:


New OEM emblems


Planned Modifications:

Race pads
Coilovers (leaning towards Ohlins DFV)
Roll Cage
Intake ( not sure what one as of yet)
Exhaust (again, not sure, i like quiet)
Dallas steering wheel wrap (yellow strip and black suede)

looking forward to updating this as i progress!!

took some time today and Clayed the car and followed up with a Glaze and wax, she looks new!!!

also, i removed all of the yellow "S" emblems on the car, the previous owner had them on the hubcaps /front and rear and the steering wheel (steering wheel was a pain to take off)

Took out my soft top today, removed the aftermarket hoop speakers that were on the car, and mounted my RPF1's in 255/40/17 RS-3's

man that soft top is heavy! also, it is a major PAIN in the ass to remove,

on the plus side i now know how to remove every single interior piece in the car!

so after getting disappointing compression numbers, that my PPI did not catch... i wanted to make sure before i dive into a head rebuild. so i bought a compression tester, and lord and behold...results were 240/240/200/240



REALLY disappointing considering that all of the other cylinders are PERFECT....but that's life. so i ordered a new super-tech valve-train to install next week. XD
