Default Can you turbo a honda s2000?

because my friend said that you couldn't turbo it, only you can supercharge it.

ok to start anything you can supercharge you can turbo, but turbos have turbo lag and generally run higher boost.

the s2000's come with a very high compression ratio, this means that if you turbo or supercharge this car you are asking to blow it up!

i am not saying you cant though, you can supercharge or turbo anything. the only smart way to do either is to rebuild the motor with lower compression or it wont last.

Yes, it can most definately accept a turbo. Many choose supercharging as an option because of the instant torque which is typically what a 4 cylinder engine lacks. However, the S2000 came with an F20C 2.0L engine early on and eventually came with an F22 variant. They can both accept boost from either a turbo or a supercharger since it's the same idea but achieved in a slightly different way. The possibilities are endless. The links included are just two examples of bolt on turbo kits specifically designed for the Honda S2000.

In all honesty all of these are legitimate answers. S2000s can be boosted but considering the high compression, you have to limit your boost to a minimum unless you rebuild the engine with lower compression pistons like the first answer said. Like I said, a stock S2000 will accept forced induction but you can't safely go above 6-7 psi. That actually applies to most non-turbo cars however. Just the even higher compression of the S2000 just requires even more consideration.

due to high compression. however it still works.. turbo and be added anywhere. but don't worry. just get a turbo from a legit company like greddy, HKS, or some other company that are legit. and if you go on their web they have compatible ones for S2000.

Your friend is a stupid not to mention also a liar. Sure you can turbo it assuming it has an engine inside.

Ummm sont know about the first guy but if you read any honda mag. there have been endless amount of people that have taken STOCK s2k's and put turbos on them with no other upgrades and have made 350 plus with no problems. Yes it is high comp. but it is also fully forged.
