I'm guessing a Comptech to match the intake. It would also be "period correct"

Clueless comments. Horrible buy at $45K.

But, as just mentioned above- $45,0000- plus fees comes to a few thousand more- $49,500. Some remarks on the sale- the block helper dropped the hood as well when closing it. The presenter couldn't figure AP1 vs. AP2- no harm but you can tell BJ is a primarily domestic iron auction.

So, all s2000's are great cars, but why is this not the year to have at $45,000? For north america, the mid 2002 and 2003 were the best of the AP1 version (convertible top/ECU/oil banjo bolts/interior).

The other surprise of the BJ auction so far was the silver 2001 NSX, VIN 00001 which sold for $99,000- as equipped with an automatic transmission- just mental.

Make you money, spend your money.

Reduced power to 252hp (from a 3.0L, vs. a 290hp 3.2L in the NA2), 4-speed, torque converter... really sad state of affairs coupled with a low torque, high-redline engine.

Yeah that is dumb. But still lots of people that just want a status car but do not really want a sports car, so they do that I guess. I understand why they made auto miatas, since a ton of people buying them wanted a cute roadster to drive to the salon they worked at But not so much on the NSX
