1400HP 2JZ Swapped Honda S2000 vs. Sketchy Vert – Street Hits

April 9th, 2020

The backdrop looks like this: It’s 4:00 a.m. and there are about thirty street racers milling about a shopping center parking lot, somewhere below the southern U.S. border. Challenges are issued and gambling matters are sorted before our cameraman climbs into a 2JZ (Toyota engine) swapped Honda S2000. After that, the racers begin filing out of the parking lot and heading for the interstate. The time has come to put your money where your mouth is – let’s race!

After borrowing an oil filler cap from a Supra owner, the S2000 was ready to hit the highway and roll on Sketchy Vert. The Sketchy Pontiac Trans Am WS6 with a Thompson Motorsports-built LSX, a 94-millimeter ProCharger and a 200hp kit from Nitrous Express. It is a beast and has been featured in countless videos and blogs. The S2000 is running a billet 2JZ block and heads with a massive turbo and a billet crankshaft.

In the first two hits, the Honda appears to walk away from the Trans Am, easily. Apparently, there was a problem with communicating the start signal. On the third hit, the competitors finally get lined up and start fairly. This one is almost too close to call, but it seems the S2000 got the win, again. After that, the rain moved in and ended the morning.
