    Check out this site, the top stuff is mostly racing stuff at last year's Open Track Challenge. But scroll down to the bottom (PMUM S2000) and they have an S2k built right. Paxton Blower at 13psi, 400whp baby, eats the ass out of a Ferrari 355, the motor is built to handle 30psi (obiviously trans and rear are not, not to mention it is already going to be a handful to drive) Its going to be in Sport Compact Car USCC too. There are a bunch of dope other cars here from the Open Track Challenge (OTC) that happened at Buttonwillow in southern California. There is a sweet dyno plot to show that this thing is legit too.

    The S2000 is nice, but I didn't get the torque numbers, and I'm too lazy right now to figure them out.
    <_<


    Ok, I was curious, it put out about 237 foot lbs of torque at 8700 rpms. I didn't plot the curve and find the peak, but that's probably close.

    There is going to be a Miata in the USCC this year too, so that car will be down in the lower ranks with the S2K in the Granny test. Personally I think that this S2000 really has a shot.
