ENEOS x Super Street East Coast Contest: The Winner

A closer look at the S2000 that YOU helped pick!

Just a few weeks ago we launched a contest via our Instagram page in a collaborative effort with our friends at ENEOS Motor Oil. The prize? A chance to display your vehicle in the ENEOS booth at the massive Gridlife South Festival at Road Atlanta on August 23-25. As a bonus, ENEOS is kind enough to hand over $1,000 for expenses, grant VIP access along to Gridlife plus event swag, ENEOS T-shirts, ENEOS oil and ride experience in Steve Arpin's ARX Rallycross Ford Fiesta machine!

That's a great prize package for the winning participant, who was asked to submit his vehicle using a hashtag, provide some info, and ultimately face two other finalists. After tallying all the votes, in which you were able to play a part, the overwhelming winner is William Tran @freesillywillaaayyy and his Honda S2000.

There are countless directions you can take when building Honda's celebrated roadster but for William, combining functionality along with some carefully chosen parts and wrapping it up in an aggressive package was the formula he chose.

The front half of this AP1 is smothered in J's Racing goods, including the half-bumper (which has been molded into place), carbon fiber canards and aero fenders. Under the front bumper you'll find a splitter that's been chassis-mounted to remain effective at speed.

To balance the aero, the S2K's rear is dominated by a 1,700mm Voltex Type 7 center-mount, perched a little further from the trunk lid thanks to 325mm Aerogenic wing stands. Crouch down and you're eye-to-eye with a C-West bumper, which carries a Group A rear diffuser. A square set up based on 18x9.5" +22 Volk ZE40s and Federal RS-RR tires were elected for duty, hiding Hawk HP+ pads. Peek behind and you'll find very capable HKS Hipermax IV SP coilovers.

Although there are a dozen different forced induction options for the S2000, William wasn't only after big, peaky power, so he opted for the raw grunt of an all-motor set up. That's not to say he wasn't looking for additional torque, and stepping up to a 2.2L swap helped facilitate the additional push, along with a J's Racing Tsuchinoko intake, 70RR exhaust system and Skunk2 Megapower header. The bolt-on math doesn't really apply to Honda's F20/F22C family unless you take matters into your own hands with proper management and, in William's case, AEM's Infinity 6 was the answer to maximize those performance parts.

When it's time to turn some laps, a set of Corbeau fixed-back seats fitted with Braum harnesses keep William and his passenger firmly planted under the watchful eye of a Hard Dog double-diagonal roll bar. The center console and tunnel carpet were ditched for carbon fiber replacements, while the steering wheel was replaced by a Mugen Gen III. Having removed the factory soft top for that crucial rollbar upgrade, a Forbidden USA carbon fiber hardtop was installed for William to avoid the elements.

Regardless of what direction you take with the S2000, the one thing that will never, ever go out of style is a well-built, track-ready version such as William's. It's fully capable of holding its own against more expensive competition on the track, able to attract eyes at a car show and successful in grabbing your vote in the ENEOS x Super Street Gridlife South Festival contest. Congrats, William!

Anybody attending the Gridlife South Festival at Road Atlanta on August 23-25 should check out the car in the ENEOS booth in the paddock area, along with Steve Arpin's Rallycross Fiesta. Visitors to the booth can also score a free, limited edition ENEOS T-shirt and, if you wish you could take a ride in the fast Ford, check out ENEOS @eneosusa and Gridlife @gridlifeofficial social media channels as more rallycross ride-alongs will be up for grabs.
