Not quite a "catalog car" (Volks, Ohlins, OEM bits etc, as well as non-Spoon future mods ) but I do appreciate Spoon's no frills approach to a "balanced car". Its very difficult to drastically improve our cars so subtle changes are good enough for me. Plus this specific S2000 will never see track duty so an Alcon or Stoptech kit is a bit overkill for her.

I still love the look of the Spoons, wish I had a set to hang on the wall of my living room, lol. With the Spoons, stainless lines, and Carbotech pads I never found wanting for more stopping power, street, track, or at the Dragon.

Can't wait to start swapping parts over from my AP1 and list it for sale! Also picked up a new Tanabe Medallion for the car, since the Skunk2 with the supercharger is brutal on the highway.




What do you mean the Skunk2 with the supercharger is brutal on the highway?

I just found it droned a ton on the highway and was unbearable with the roof up. Plus, the tone was bassy and boomy, and I hated how it looked.

I installed my Tanabe today with an EVS high flow cat. It's a little quiet for my taste, but I'm hoping it gets a little louder as it breaks in (although I can hear all of the cool supercharger sounds much better). It does sounds great in VTEC though.

The Tanabe stays pretty quiet below 4,000 rpm even when it breaks in. It's loud when you want it to be though. And there's no drone. It's a great exhaust (for adults lol) IMO.

Yeah I agree. I have the Medalion Touring with a test pipe. Sounds nice (screams but no rasp) in higher RPMs at full throttle. Cold start it sounds a little 'boom-y' and deep but that stops quick and it sounds just a little deeper than stock but same volume in low RPMs driving.

I watched every YouTube video on dual exhausts. This was the most tuned, mature sounding exhaust. Others were obnoxious, ricey, raspy, or all of the above. I'm not impressed with the y-pipe as it has slag on the inside and the reduced pipes don't have perfect marriage but, price is right, sound is great...
