I like to think that it took 6 years of lessons learned on the track and in the garage by dedicated S2000 owners. It only took me ~3 hours of searching, cutting, and pasting to put the above together

I think someone needs to write a "what mods in what order" article too. I know we all hate that question because the answer should be "nothing" until you know the longer answer yourself, but it's inevitable that it will get asked again and again.

Maybe we should start with a list of useful mods (versus "useless" ones like STBs and BBKs), then break it down into which ones to get for what purpose (AS autocross, BSP, track day, time attack, W2W), and then sort by order of importance. This might take multiple people with personal experience with the different purposes.

I linked the discussions on many individual mods in the FAQ, so if anyone would like to hear the consensus on whether a particular modification is worth the $$, they can simply read them. I have a feeling that having a thread discussing useful mods could become very subjective and hostile (i.e. The STB thread). However, put together something fairly objective, concise, and informative and I think it would be a great addition to the FAQ.
