      S2000 engine and trans. The shop I work at is one of the big S2000 tuning shops. We build everything else for these cars so why not build the whole damn car?

      here is one of our shop cars.

      Very cool- I saw your build log on locostusa.com. I'm on there too with the same username, although I haven't updated my build log in a very long time. I'm still working on it, just haven't had time to take pictures!

      sweet build thread!

      Too bad the economy went in the ****ter and Honda canceled the s2k... the next gen motor was pretty sweet and the world may never see it.

      Question:
      what is up with this?

      http://i886.photobucket.com/albums/a...Picture082.jpg

      That's not the final location for that link, is it?
