Joey Butel's High HP Supercharged S2000
Joey Butel has built himself a package to be reckoned with. Starting with
a mild-mannered 2006 Honda S2000, who knew the heights this 2.2L would see
in its lifetime! Joey first bolted on a Science Of Speed Supercharging
System with Paxton NOVI 1220 Supercharger, then proceeded to upgrade his head
unit...not once, but TWICE. First, when his NOVI 1220 wasn't able to push
enough Boost he opted for the NOVI
1200. Then, when 511rwhp was still not enough, Joey jumped up to the
Paxton NOVI 1500 Supercharger and was
able to break the current record for highest horsepower supercharged
S2000 - 558.51RWHP & 353.04RWTQ. Currently running 24psi on E85, his
supporting mods include a T1R Power header, 3 inch catback Exhaust with test pipe, ported stock throttle
body, Honda KPro EMS, ID2000cc injectors, Inline Pro return-style fuel
system, 255lph Walbro fuel pump, Kenne Bell Boost-A-Pump, and a Fuel Lab fuel pressure
There's a Comp Clutch Stage 2+ to help hold the power currently being layed
down, along with differential collars, Bilstein PSS9s, Whiteline
performance sway bars, CR steering rack brace, and widened rear wheels with
Nitto NT01 R comp 275/40/17 tires. For brakes, this S2K has got Racing
Brake 2pc slotted rotors, Hawk HPS pads, and SOS stainless lines.
So deceptive is this car's understated look, there is almost nothing about
it's outer appearance that will tip you off to the power it has on tap.
The hardtop, lip spoiler, and trunk spoiler are all OEM offerings, with
only a coastal metal splitter as any indicator the car is not stock. Joey
even opted to widen the factory wheels instead of purchasing aftermarket
units to retain the car's stock outer appearance. We're sure Joey has no
problem surprising drivers of all types both on the street, and at the
track with this potent package.
When asked what it was like to hold the title of highest horsepower supercharged
S2000, and what he thought of his car now, Joey replied "It's a blast!
500+(rwhp) in this car is purely SCARY. The car has no traction in less
than fourth gear. Even rolling into the throttle is big fun. It's netting
some crazy numbers...and (given the chance) I would do it all exactly the
