If there’s any application that Evasive Motorsports is known for, it’s got to be the Honda S2000. Years in the making, this is our 4th major build involving this platform. After running it at Global Time Attack last year at the Long Beach Grand Prix, we decided to take it to another level. Previously, this build was powered by an upgraded HKS GT Supercharger with a GTS8555. However, we weren’t satisfied with the power at 450whp. So we went back to our roots and asked HKS to support us in switching our setup to a turbocharger. For those that remember our EVO IX, HKS supported the turbo setup on that project. With an Origin Fab custom turbo manifold, we mounted an HKS GT6290 BB turbo to the TODA stroked F22C. With the help of NCS Designs, the car was tuned to 640whp.
With Dai Yoshihara at the helm, the car did its first shakedown at this past weekend’s Global Time Attack finals event. Dai was able to clock a new S2000 record lap of 1:41.2. He thinks he can get it down to 1:40 in the current setup. We’ll have to return to see. View the record setting lap below along with interview and overview with Dai Yoshihara.
