However I don't think comparing the Rsx-S to a FR-S is fair, more like FRS/BRZ Vs S2000

Even now after owning an s2000 for a few months, still miss the K20A2 or K20A..
They're comparable, but definitely not a fair comparison lol
S2k still wins, 10+ years later

Can you elaborate? From my experience it feels like the K20 has a bit more mid range torque compared to the F20 but I could be wrong.

Just realizing I'm thread jacking a bit here. I used to own an S2000 and test drove a BRZ. I felt the BRZ motor lacked any sort of drama that makes the F and K series motors so much fun. The BRZ motor was just lifeless IMHO.

I've already spoken to supercharged about this and yes the S2K is slightly better, but it was more expensive when it came out.

Exactly. For me the F series revs kinda slow nothing until hitting Vtec and doesnt respond well to mods . Its fun but not as good as K20A2 z1 z3 A with just simple bolt on and kpro.

The FRS/ BRZ is fine besides the tq dip i just dislike how it gives nothing up top.

Most headers for this car fix the dip and even the off the shelf tunes finish the rest of it off.

U are 100% correct on the price . But there's reasons. Honda did things that have never been done in the release for it. The first ever 240hp 4 cylinder motor. The most hp per litre 4 cylinder..Perfect 50 50 weight distribution. A digital cluster in the year 1999. A 9k rev limit engine equipped with forged pistons from factory.The s2000 is considered part of automotive history. There's reasons for the price . Not saying it's justifiable but they had reason for it. The frs brz new was cheaper but it doesn't do anything to set it apart from the pack. The s2000 did. U can get a very clean low s2000 low mileage for well under 20k now.

I agree with u on the k20. My type s also feels better in mid range then my s2k used to when factory . The s2k doesn't come to life until 6k. Before that it's pretty much dead lol.
