Quite interesting engine swap option for your track oriented NA! I really do like the characteristic of the Honda F20C/F22C engines. This powerplant bolted in an 2200lbs chassis should work pretty well on track!

– 2001 Honda S2000 F20C motor & 6-speed transmission

Here’s a little vid from the trackday showing the hachi as “the meat” in an S2000 sandwich. Thanks Tom for filming!
