Project EJ Honda Civic: Skunk2 Pro-C Coilovers
by Annie Sam
My Koni Yellows coupled with the Ground Control coilover kit served me well for street use, and I think I got more than my money's worth out of these shocks over the last eight years. Now that I am no longer a starving college student, my grown up self decided that I should upgrade to a grown up set of coilovers. After a little bit of research, we decided to go for a set of Skunk2 Pro-C coilovers for Project EJ Civic.

Project S2000 - Oil Cooling
by Khiem Dinh
Tracking the S2000 and monitoring the oil temperatures has taught us one thing: it runs hot! Even with the reduced coolant temperatures afforded by the Koyo radiator, the oil temperatures were still too high for a car to be tracked for long-term reliability. This is occurring at completely stock power levels even (the more power an engine makes, the more heat it makes and consequently needs to reject). High oil temperatures lead to reduced oil viscosity and faster oil breakdown. Low oil viscosity can mean inadequate oil film strength and thickness with the end result being metal-on-metal contact between engine components. While low oil viscosity may not grenade your engine immediately, it will lead to accelerated wear of components.
Project S2000 Part 8 - Oil Control
By Khiem Dinh
Oil is the vital life blood of an engine. It allows the engine's internal components to slide past each other with very little friction or wear. However, there is one place an engine does not want oil and that is in the incoming air stream.
Project EJ Honda Civic
By Chuck Johnson
You're probably wondering what this busted ass Honda Civic is doing on the virtual pages of MotoIQ. I mean, it's far from the flawless presentation of MotoIQ's usual project cars and lacks the engineering luster to be excusable like Coleman's innovative crap cans. Instead, this Civic's clear coat is peeling off and almost every panel has some kind of battle wound on it… but every gear head has a story about the car that was their first love.
Project S2000 Part 7 - Cold (For SoCal) Weather Fun
Our previous track day was in the middle of the freakin desert during the heat of summer to see how the car's various systems handled the almost 100F temps. The upgrades of the Koyo radiator and StopTech brakes took the heat thrown at them and didn’t even break a sweat, but the stock oil system wasn’t up to the task and probably wished it could have sweated to get rid of some heat.
INDUSTRY NEWS: New Clutch Kit and Flywheel for 00-07 Honda S2000
MotoIQ Staff Report
The Centerforce high performance DFX single disc clutch is now available for the 2000 to 2007 Honda S2000 2.0L VTEC 6-Speed.
ACT - SFI Approved Clutch Kits for Honda S2000
Advanced Clutch Technology (ACT) has released new SFI approved performance clutch kits and components for the 2000 - 2009 Honda S2000.
As with anything, a strong foundation is the key to success. For a good handling car, that means a super rigid chassis. The S2000 is blessed with a very stiff chassis from the factory, but when you chop the top off of any car it will be less stiff compared to a car with a roof. The S2000 doesn’t have the bad cowl shake that is the tell-tale sign of a not-so-stiff convertible chassis, but there are a few creaks from the soft top roof as the chassis flexes.
In keeping with the theme of making this car as reliable as possible, we’ve added ARK Design’s newly released MFD2 (Multi-Function Display). The benefit of the MFD2 over the previous MFD is the ability to plug straight into the OBDII port whereas the old MFD required splicing into the ECU harness. We hate electrical work, and this makes it about as plug-n-play as you can get!
