I remember this NSX C32(or c30) engine’d car from back in the day on S2ki. I believe the owner is a shop from Germany. Enjoy
I have a strong fascination with S2000 engine swaps. While I am in love with my 9k Redlining f20c engine, it’s not for everyone. We’ve seen everything from LS Swaps, to SR20s, to 2JZ, and even K series engines, but this V10 definitely takes the cake. Enjoy this build from Hboy777 from the V8s2000 forum. I’m not too sure if it’s done yet, incredible progress has been made, such as the transmission tunnel, relocating the foot pedals 3 inches to the left (not sure how I feel about this). Enjoy
Pictures are not in any particular order.
Today I worked on transferring my killer-bee oil pickup to the new engine. I also took it upon myself to repaint my intake manifold. My STi intake manifold was flaking off.
Red wrinkle paint from VHT
A paint brush
Paint stripper by Strip-X
A heat gun
I used THIS as a reference for my project.
I didn’t take any pictures doing the paint stripping, but this is my finished result…. I over wrinkled the intake manifold with too much heat gun, nonetheless it looks a lot better than before!
I’m going to try this on my S2k Valve cover when I get the chance!
Hello everybody! I haven’t forgotten about you, I’ve just been really busy with work lately, trying to find a new job, and something else….. I bought an 2005 STi for cheap, but the turbo was blown, so I’m in the process of refreshing it up with a new engine, turbo, and seals…
Check it out!
I should be getting a real camera again soon, not a DSLR but anything is better than my iPhone, especially this outdated 3GS.
Brand New VF48
Picked up this low mileage engine a week ago with my dad. Guy I picked it up from has a warehouse that I assume he shares with his friends, has a lift, tools, and storage space for him and his friends projects. He was selling the engine because he replaced it with a brand new COSWORTH longblock, I’m super jealous. My goals for the STi is just to have a nice daily, my EG is an okay daily, but it’s just so slow and if I mod it, I’m sure it’s going to be stolen.
I haven’t forgotten about the S2k, it’s on the back burner now. It’s back to stock engine, I had a weird issue I thought was my kpro, but it turns out I had a faulty IACV. All the car needs is some hardtop seals, the rear glass, some paint, and I’m ready to drive.
Also…. check out my Girlfriend’s awesome food blog! She takes way better pictures than me, and it should leave you starving!
Till next time. 再見！
Quick mod I did today. I relocated my Cigarette lighter to my center console. I removed the rear bulkhead awhile back so I just had the plug hanging around on the harness. I think it looks a lot cleaner this way and pretty much just slides right in. All I did was remove my roof switch, since I don’t have a soft top anymore, slide the plug into with a bit of force and extend the harness. Looks OEM and great!
I found this on the TORQ Project Facebook page. It’s a shop based out in Singapore, from what I’ve seen, the s2k heads in Singapore don’t play around when it comes to their s2k.
“These are badass internally drilled Brembo Monoblocs with Titanium inserts”
“Custom Machined T6 Bells, head treated and hard anodized”
“Complete Kit” The calipers and rotors look huge!
“Carbon metallic Brake pads”
“Burnished Brake Rotors and pads means immediate tracking without need for bedding in”
“Badass setup to work on 17inch wheels!” Looks like some Nice RS-D rims.
They look great on the car…Nice color too….
If you liked what you saw here, check them at on their fb page https://www.facebook.com/TORQProject . They always have nice AT-power ITB content, since they are a distributor.
Here you can see that the TODA flywheel clearly revs Faster compared to the OEM flywheel and also drops revs faster.
More responsive engine
Price It is $500+ for a flywheel + labor costs (if you don’t do it yourself)
Requires you to shift faster and be more alert
Guy blows motor, guy drops 20million yen for a new motor built by K-TECH, guy drives again…..All while Gran Turismo Music is in the background.
Besides the Engine, the car is fully ASM’ed out with craftsquare mirrors, and a Mugen Hardtop.
