Default BBK a must when S2000 has Forced Induction?

Hi All,

I havent tinkered with my S2000 for a year. Just pulled it out of the inlaws backyard, got it registered, and detailed over the weekend!

It has a K24 motor swapped and drives alright. nice and torque but bored of the power as I was driving a JDM K20 DC2R for awhile.

Anyways I am looking to turbo or SC options on my S2000, and wondering if I can get away with stock rotors, aggresive pads. If I have to run a BBK, it would be spoon as I have the AP2 Wasp brake duct kit and prefer to keep them.

If you aren't going to take it to the track stock will be fine.

I doubt you'll need more brake 'cuz you won't be going any faster. Quicker acceleration no doubt but speeds are going to be the same. Tires will make more of a diffeence than larger brakes anyway. If your current brakes trip the anti-locks the tires have achieved maximum stopping ability regardless of what brakes are on the car.

Yeah the common misconception is that BBK add breaking force/stopping power, when in reality they don't, that's the pad material choice. What they do over OEM is help prevent overheating and brake fade lap after lap around the race track. You should never see brake fade on oem brakes with proper fluid on the street unless you are doing something far beyond what you should be doing legally. It takes a lot of high speed braking consistently over a duration to build up enough heat to start experiencing brake fade. Run good high temp fluid, ss brake lines, even some cooling ducts and a good pad and oem will be totally fine 90% of the time, even on the track to a point.
