My no AFM plus light mods 2.3 M3 GAINS yes GAINS just over 1/2 car length on a Honda S2000 from 60-90 MPH. It pulls it. Very precise test running the cars from 60 to 90 MPH in third (all VTEC for the H, and no shifting or anything other than aiming straight and flooring it). Separate runs (not actually run side by side - nearly impossible to start at exactly the same time) with the 'puter measuring when you hit the exact speeds and the distances to under a foot and the times to the hundredth of a second. The Honda was modified with a Mugen CAI and header and exhaust - 240 something HP. Not bad for an old car! Guys, ya gotta ditch that AFM!!! It really puts a tiger in your tank.<p>Cars are even at 60 MPH<br>By 70 the M is 6 feet ahead.<br>By 80 the M stays 6 feet ahead.<br>By 90 the M finishes 8 feet ahead. <p>Basically the M runs from about 5000 to 7500 Rpm and the H from 6000 to 9000 RPMs. The M gets most of it's advantage from initial torque.<p>Cool.<p>Stan

..torque around 6000 RPM but not so much with HP. Torque is a weak point of the S2000!! Even so the car is supposed to be up a few ponies from stock with the mods used. Carbon fiber CAI, headers that boost around the 6-7000 RPM range and a cat back exhaust which mostly cuts weight. The S2k is a tough car to wring more power from...like an E46 M3 in that regard. Those are about 3000 in mods to make a fairly subtle difference in the Honda.<p>Stan
