"The objective of this article is to lay out the foundation of what I call a “budget” way of making 700 rear-wheel horsepower from a Honda K24 engine. One of my criteria is that I can only use off-the-shelf parts, nothing fancy that you have to wait for 6 months to get. However, I do need the correct combination of parts that will work well together to reach the harmonic tone of 700 reliable horsepowers. With that being said, no combination of parts will matter if you have the wrong engine builder, so I’ve reached out to InlinePRO for this project. This article is what I’m calling Phase 0 (zero), meaning this is what the blueprint for the build will be. Now, let’s get to the important stuff, starting with the cylinder head." READ MORE
The results from Ultimate Track Car Challenge presented by Tire Rack are finally in Grassroots Magazine. I'm disspointed by my 37th place finish, how ever it's not bad for being the first event. I'd love to go back in 2020!
"When I first thought about writing this, I was sure that it would be the final chapter for Sheri. Since I last spoke to you all, I’ve wrapped up aero package version 10.0, finished the turbo K swap, and finalized the heat exchanger orientation. Then it hit me, on June 3rd to be exact, that Sheri will honestly never have a set finish date. It’ll never really be done. There is always something to change. Something still breaks, and once it breaks you can’t just replace it. You have to figure out why it broke and upgrade it. So with that in mind, let’s see what we’ve improved." READ MORE
"It was more than a decade ago when I was a college student, trying desperately—and unsuccessfully—to juggle attending class and studying for Finals, with developing a social life and working a more-than-part-time job to pay for it all. Believe it or not, that was a lot of stress for inexperienced and inefficient me, and like a lot of young people in my situation, I counted the days each year until Spring Break provided a small, but valuable, break from it all."
"It almost seems like I just talked to you, doesn’t it? Now that you know the basics of K swapping an S2000, let’s look deeper into what has changed with good ole Sheri. Disclaimer, we are still working on her so there are some things that are missing. One would say you might have to use your imagination for now to see the finished hooptie, I mean project. With that being said, let’s get started with the engine." READ MORE
"It seems that a few of us here at Speed Academy have gone K swap crazy. We put a K20 in Pete’s brother’s EK coupe last year and we’re currently putting one in our S14. So I figured I might as well join along and put one in my S2000 as well!" READ MORE
It’s been almost half a year since I last spoke with you all in S2000 Starts To Get Awesome. There has been a lot of downs with some ups, so I figured this would be the perfect time to talk about it all before the New Year. With that being said, let’s start with what was suppose to be my first event – Ultimate Track Car Challenge at Virginia International Raceway." Read More
Moto IQ feature on Sheri:
"It all starts the same way. “I want to go auto-crossing!” you say. So, you start browsing the interwebs and research the S2000. You start auto-crossing and start modding and moving through the classes. Then, you do a track day. Then, you mod the car some more. Then, you do time attack. Then, you end up with a highly built race car like Devin Giles- owner and driver of this fast S2000. It’s a familiar path; there’s probably a support group for it out there."
"Professional Awesome and I have been very busy making Sheri more competitive this year. Each year it seems that the fastest lap time from last year won’t get you on the podium the upcoming season. With that itching at the back of our brains, we started off with the easy things that needed to be addressed. re rofessional Awesome and I have been very busy making Sheri more competitive this year.

"Chasing records is no easy thing to do or even consider. When you factor in how much more corner speed and straight away speed you have to reach, it becomes very evident that safety needs to be addressed as well. So with that being said, I sent Sheri, my time attack prepped Honda S2000, to Touge Factory in Wheeling, Illinois to add side impact protection, forward roll over protection, and to tie the cage into the front shock towers."
