Unreleased: Evans Tuning Part 2: The Evans/Bader 2001 Honda s2000
Only three months after the initial post do I bring on part two. I guess it’s not that bad with my track record lately.
The s2000 here was built by Evan’s Tuning for Bader Dashti of B-Tune Performance in Kuwait. It was another shoot scheduled for a Honda Tuning (RIP) feature. The car has made consistent 8 second passes and at the time of the photoshoot it was making over 1000 whp. These kinds of numbers were achieved with a Borg Warner 72mm s400sx with an 87mm Turbine wheel, a 90mm accufab throttle body, a full race turbo manifold all attached to an 87×91 black with 10:1 CP pistons and Inline Pro billet stage 3 cams.
Putting the power to the ground is a Gforce 4 speed dog box transmission, a competition triple disc clutch and competition flywheel. The rear end is a Ford 8.8 with a wavetrac LSD with a custom driveshaft shop driveshaft and their level 5.9 axles.
Bader has been a Honda man for many years, building mostly FWD chassis, like many of us. In Kuwait he has helped build all kinds of s2000s for street, autocross and strip, some with forced induction and others naturally aspirated. The goal with this s2000 was to build an s2000 that looked mostly factory in appearance both in the interior and exterior while producing impressive power and being able to compete with six cylinder engines in the super street class in Kuwait.
In no particular order, the s2000:
