Here’s How To Supercharge A Honda S2000 To 340 HP The Easy Way

The Honda S2000 will celebrate its 20th anniversary next year and, despite its age, still looks fresh and offers exhilarating performance and driving thrills. For some, however, a stock S2000 is not quite special enough.

Engineering Explained has owned and shot videos of this bright yellow S2000 for well over a year now, and recently decided to up the ante and fit a supercharger.

The supercharger selected comes from Science Of Speed. It is a centrifugal design and somewhat resembles a turbocharger when installed. All up, it took roughly 14 hours to fit and also includes a FVM controller to handle the fuel, VTEC variable valve control and MAP tuning.

This particular setup adds roughly 100 HP at 6 PSI of boost and is a relatively tame upgrade. A plethora of other supercharging kits are available and it’s not uncommon for the more extreme ones to deliver in excess of 500 HP.

When left stock, the screaming four-cylinder engine is one of the finest engines of its sort. However, like any naturally-aspirated performance Honda, the S2000 doesn’t have much of torque or horsepower below 4,000 revs. Supercharging takes care of the torque issue and, unlike turbocharging, offers a steady stream of low-end torque without any lag.

What say you: does this make for the perfect S2K, or should the manic four be left unmolested?
