Installing A Supercharger On My 2002 Honda S2000! How Do Superchargers Work - Subscribe to Humble Mechanic! - The Honda S2000 is without a doubt an exceptional drivers car. That doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement! This video captures the installation of a Science Of Speed Stage 1 Supercharger kit on a 2002 Honda S2000 F20C engine. The Stage 1 kit is good for about 100 HP at about 6 PSI of boost, and uses a simple FVM controller for fuel, VTEC, and MAP tuning. Charles aka Humble Mechanic joined me for the installation, which was a fairly lengthy process (Science Of Speed estimates this to be a 14 hour job). There are certainly scenarios which are helpful to have a friend working with you, like removing the bumper, torquing the crank bolt, and torquing the supercharger pulley. While the engine bay was fairly opened up, we went ahead and replaced spark plugs, fuel injectors, idler & tensioner pulleys, as well as the fuel filter.

HumbleMechanic : Good times, a completed job, my dude Jason, and BOOST! 💙

Robzu : When there's a 25 min video, and after watching it you feel like 10 minutes have passed. Now THAT, is when you know you've watched something seriously entertaining. Can't wait for the dyno tuning!

Kiraro The Kitsune : Jason's Schedule: Car Reviews / Someday How stuff works / Someday How to fix / Someday List videos / Someday Comedy / Someday Projects / Someday Track / Someday Formula / Someday Others / Someday Engineering Explained, the only channel with no actual schedule, just content, the good kind of content.

Kuri Brown : So glad this video wasn't drug out over 6 episodes like some other shade lol

Lucas : this gets a 10/10 for making it one part, and not dragging it out with mindless BS like so many other channels

Man Stuff Channel : "Does money even matter anymore?" Only someone who has boosted their vehicle will understand the depth and validity of this question... good job.

Bryce : Be careful with relocating the vtec make sure it's securely fastened or else all your vtec will leak out into the street and you won't make any power

Husky701 Rider : Cutest couple on YouTube.

Sir Sparco : tfw you supercharge a car in one video whereas certain car youtubers do an entire multi-season series for changing something basic like their lugnuts...COUGH*TJHunt*COUGH

sienile : No whiteboard? I feel cheated. :p Nice change of pace. You and Charles work well together.

Matt Maran Motoring : This was awesome guys! I'm excited for your first drive video Jason!

Dongle : “Hondas don’t fail, Charles”. I’m hearing that while looking at my accord, which decided it doesn’t like having coolant anymore

Scirocco ThePunisher : The correct title of this vid,should be Supercharging my s2000 in my garage!!you know the new youtube trend

Gabriel Sterr : You two are both compltetely nuts. In a good way!

Duck : Thanks for not making this a 20 part video

Eliminator Performance : To those that say it's a turbo in the thumbnail 🤦🏻‍♂️

aussiebloke609 : "While you're in there..." - words that can cause panic. I used to have a classic Mini as my daily driver - and I got it with a burned valve. So, the cheapest fix was to get a second hand head and put it on. Job done (in theory, anyway.) However...I figured I may as well buy the big valve head, as it wasn't all _that_ much more. And once the head was off and I was replacing it with one that flows better, it kinda made sense to change the cam (which that was on my to-do list for the future anyway.) But that meant I also needed to change to twin carbs, new intake and synchronizing the complete exhaust, manifold to tailpipe, recurve the distributor... $3500 and a week later - and my "burnt valve" was fixed. And those words _still_ give me nightmares. :-D

Oetti : Each of these steps seems extremely straightforward...but to pull them all off, together, and come out with a functional and impressive modification such as a 100hp+ boost, is nonetheless an achievement. I say this because I am also a mechanical engineer, but my knowledge doesn't extend much past theory - Jason (with the help of an experienced mechanic) *actually* did it! I am impressed and always humbled; actions speak louder than words! Great work Jason and Mr. Humble Mechanic!

Albaro Palomera : This is the same kit I want to get on my S2000. So jealous right now lol. Love your videos man. Not just cause you own a s2k also

eslai : I really appreciate that you didn't make us suffer through daily, long-winded, monetized "build" videos like other youtubers do. You focused on the important parts AND made the video entertaining. Kudos to you both. Thanks for avoiding the temptation to flood us with BS just to make money.

Mworx : You make a good team together, between you both there is a lot of knowledge in theory and practice, we can benefit from all of it which has no price tag, you can't buy the type of knowledge you offer for free

deliziöse Tiefkühlkost : Will you explain why you choose a centrifugal supercharger in a later video ❓

Stuart Johnson : I literally just snapped a 3/8" breaker bar in my crack shaft pulley too! I had to go get a 1/2" as well. Great work on the build! Keep it up

Tyler Sauter : The most ambitious crossover event in history

Jordyn Kennedy : I love how extensively detailed this was. It's so nice when install videos list all the tools you'll need and thoroughly detail every step. Great video.

M Sabbagh : Coming up on 6 months.. would be great to have an update/review/your impressions so far and where you want to go from here

BTR Justin : Been waiting my whole life for this video.

Carlos Rivera : Finally SC!! wait... Charles from humble mechanic is in plus 24min video, feel like i won a nice prize

Scotty W : I seriously thought that was Aaron Kaufman for a second

Chazit up : It think we may have found a new dynamic duo. No Robin involved.

MalakiLab : Two of my favorite YouTubers. You guys are fun and instructive in same time. Hope to see more collabs with Humble Mechanic.

Mario Dalla Riva : Nice job, boys. Awesome to have Charles involved. Quality work.

Backyard Chevy : Charles knows his stuff...nice video..nicely done👍

rigormortis08 : 4 days. Not bad. 56 days quicker than the twin turbo install on my mustang! Lol

D. Mat.Zero6 : dude Charles is like a mix of charlie day and zz top (both which i like) awesome job!

BunchOfCrazyStuff : I love that good old Honda Beep Beep Beep Beep *Pause* Beep Beep Beep Beep

Jason Hioe : BEEN WANTING TO DO THIS, finally a very very instructional, clear, professional tutorial :)

boostedmaniac : Good job on the video editing and the tag team commentary. This is as high quality as watching Horsepower TV or any of these other shows where they are doing installs.

Jarrett Embry : "Honda's don't fail, Charles"

Ondrej L : i want to share my bad experience with my CRANK PULLEY BOLT...i bought Honda Del Sol and so as fresh owner i asked when the timing belt was changed, they said it has been done before like 7000km, so that was OK (later it was checked so it was true) but first time i hit the empty highway (yes i was speeding on empty highway and i used all my 7200rpms) suddenly i heard only one knock..i go off from gaspedal and nothing was happening, engine was running still (on neutral) after i checked steering if its working i checked if engine is reacting everything seems to be fine and i didnt know what hapend...i still came home on that (cause it might be just a rock you know) so i went another maybe 20km at least and just before i hit parking place i loose powersteering...after i checked the pulley belts i found out that my PULLEY is missing BOLT! i suppose that who ever was changing the timing belt he unscrewed the crank pulley bolt with a pneumatic pistol, so he even used that pistol to tightened the bolt back and obviously it was really bad idea when i ordered new bolt directly from Honda dealer i get manual where was written like in 5 steps how to correctly tightened the bolt back and there was warning to dont use any gun for that and one step included running engine so to warm crankshaft probably and after running the engine some time, torque the bolt even please (anybody whos reading) dont underestimate the torque specs and please read manuals, they are really useful and contained some important facts (since i have done it according to manual i havent problem yet) - specially for Honda owners imagine you will loose some part spinning by 7000rpms what damage it could cause and not just to your car! another thing to the snapped bolt in video, there is really no need to have all the surface cause the tensions/stress are going to zero while you are moving to zero radius....torque is force multiply by distance - so thats why is not important that middle surface of that snapped bold but im sure you know that :) and my question is how did you damaged your crank pulley bolt? (i know you have to replace it every time you unscrew it but i thought you damaged it somehow in other way)

Bill Angell : The humble mechanic and engineering explained crossover? How have I not seen this video yet.

Bogdan Mihai : What a beautiful car. I always liked the yellow/black combo on a S2000. It looks just sick!

VAspeed3 : Best quotes: "What kind of car is this? " "It's a Honda Acura Ferarri 2 Million" " Does money even matter any more?"

JavierCR25 : Always entertaining videos from Jason! Loved how thoroughly you went through the process and how neat and clean it was all kept.

Soul Surfer : Nice Job, and excellent tips to prevent anyone making the same mistakes. Tech info is great as always.

TPGaming : Seriously thought it was Aaron Kaufman at first.. 😃

Sayuj Raphael : Something you could've uploaded in the Blown Heads channel

TheJacobShapiro : Never clicked anything faster

bobwinslow : YEAHHHHHH *unpauses video to watch* I. Love. Superchargers.
