    not bad at all

    i was thinking this had to be done!

    it was an awesome car but when the 350z came out for CHEAPER, with better looks, 17's (or 18's?) and more hp why would you get a s2000?

    good they beefed up the wheels.

    only dissapointing thing is the hp still, yah it is lower rpm but if it was the same rpm like 7,700 where it is going to be but even a hp bump up to 250 or 260

    I likey... :D


    Nice to see that they made the power a little more useable, and you don't have to drive it quite so hard to run decent times.


    I still tend to lean toward the 350Z though. Isn't it supposed to be coming out in a convertible version for 2004?

    whats the red line matter anyways? your rev limiter kicks in before that

    my peak power on my car is at 7,400 rpm and the red line goes all the way up to 9 but it kicks out way before that.

    Redline is the start of the red on the tach.

    ie: My SiR w/8000rpm redline

    exactly

    mine cuts out way before 9k rpm so why bother?

    i guess it is the spedo saying it goes 260 when it cuts out around 200

    Your car redlines at 7900 rpm. You couldn't take it to 9 grand if you wanted to.

    The previous gen S2000 redlined at 9000rpm

    greg...jeebus. our cars redline at 7900rpm...AT THE START OF THE RED. The rev-limiter is at 8200. The S2000 redlined at 8900rpm, and went to 9100 (i think?)...an extra 1000rpm is significant.

    It just seems like you think the redline is 9000. The tach is rated to 9000...but that's all.

    mine shows the redline to 9500, whats your point? Mine actually has hit 9 before (at least according to the tach) and hits 84-8500 before cut off.. I rarely take it that high though, my max power is at 7600 so I shift at 7900-8k

    anyone who says that the s2000 doesn't have enough tq is a moron.. the car drives incredible .... it may have low numbers .. but that not what your thinking when your screaming down the road. and that was the first gen.. the S2200 is going to have much more useable power .. although i'm disappointed in the rev limiter change.

    S2000 was the funest car i have driven and that included, Viper, C5 Vert, mustangs, cameros, etc.

    I'll take a stock S2K over a stock 350z any day, let alone a modded s2 like that one posted.
