Project AP1 S2000: DIY Oil Filter Stopper 

by Vincent Soto

Most S2000 owners know about the oil filter problem on AP1 S2000's. At high RPMS, the engine vibration causes the filter to loosen up (our Project AP1.5 S2000 knows this well, as the F22 swap happened due to this happening on track with the original F20 engine). After a nice Sunday drive, before heading home I decided to check the oil. A gut feeling casued me to check if the filter was tight- which is a good thing that I checked because it was loose. After re-tightening the filter, I was back on my way home- only to find it slightly loose again.

Project AP1 S2000: Installing Hasport AP Differential Mounts

by Vincent Soto

Our Project AP1 S2000 is a daily workhorse. It’s almost 17 years old and is coming up on 140,000; the car has been a good reliable daily driver that sees some spirited driving every now and then. 

Recently, we discovered that the differential mounts on Project AP1 S2000 were torn and started to leak. Instead of going back to the OEM liquid filled mounts, we decided to just go with a more solid mount. After driving Project AP2 S2000 and feeling how well the Hasport mounts felt, it was a no brainer to go with them again!
