The Honda S2000 is known for its legendary F20C inline-4 that pushes the limit of what a product engine should be able to do. The VTEC equipped 2.0 liter (later increased to 2.2 liters in the F22C1) pushes 237 horsepower out of its small engine by revving to 8900 rpm. The mean piston speed of about 5000 ft/min was something that only race cars could achieve and people wondered how long the Honda built engine could last with this much internal stress and piston ring wear and con-rod forces. This next seller doesn’t mention if he has ever rolled in a new set of bearings, but the engine has 422k miles and appears to have never been rebuilt. Maybe the next owner can take this car to 1 million miles. Find this 2001 Honda S2000 offered for $9250 in Treasure Coast, FL via craigslist. Tip from Ali.

Tofu comes from breaking down soybeans and fortifying them with water and a firming coagulant before being pressed into cubes. On its own, it’s a bland protein substitute that only takes on a flavor when other spices are added. Likewise, this AE86 Corolla was completely gutted, rebuilt, and marinated with stronger pieces – Honda’s infamous inline-four with just […]
The Datsun 510 (known as the Bluebird outside the US & Canada) was the Japanese equivalent of the BMW 2002 from parent company Nissan. Like the 2002, they were built by the boatload, rusted instantly when exposed to moisture and languished in a price range that put them just inches from the crusher for decades. […]
Wondering what happened to the screaming F20C engine and 6-spd gearbox from our last V8 swapped S2000 feature? We have the answer! Well, probably not the exact same drivetrain, but you get the idea. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with Volvo’s fuel injected B20E engine which came stock in the 1800ES shooting brake, but what if you […]
