Spoon S2000 Demo Car: Progress

July 25, 2013 by Aaron in Spoon, Spoon S2000 Demo Car

We’re getting close to completing our Spoon S2000 Demo Car. Here’s the latest items that have gone on the car.

The pile of parts waiting to be installed

First up is the Spoon Aluminum Street Radiator. Constructed entirely from aluminum for increased durability and cooling efficiency.

The street designation means that it can be installed behind the factory A/C condenser and has all the the mounting locations for the factory fans. Spoon Type-F Radiator Cap is included.

Spoon 4-2-1 Exhaust Manifold (Header).

Perfect welding and Spoon badging signify authenticity.

Spoon N1 Muffler Kit. Looks as good as it sounds.

To accommodate the Spoon S-Tai Rear Bumper we had to use the OEM JDM Reinforcement Bar and OEM JDM License Plate Bracket.

Spoon Monobloc Front Calipers and Spoon Front Rotors provide the ultimate stopping package. The Spoon calipers maintain factory pedal feel and ABS modulation with the ability to use factory sized pads and rotors. The rotors are cast with the holes instead of conventional cross drilling. This provides more strength and resistance to cracking over its life cycle all while reducing unsprung weight.

Spoon Rear Rotors are also cast with the holes instead of drilling to reduce unsprung weight, resist cracking, and increase cooling.

A set of Spoon Front and Rear Brake Pads provide better stopping power and fade resistance on and off the track.

The Spoon Brake Hose Kit completes the braking package for maximum braking efficiency.

A nice view of the Spoon Full Spec Dampers we installed earlier on.

To increase efficiency of the air coming into the engine we’re using a Spoon Venturi Throttle Body. The Spoon Throttle body has a tapered shape and increased butterfly opening to not only allow more air to enter but also sleep up the speed of the air entering the engine.

The Spoon Air Cleaner makes sure the engine receives a consistent supply of air.

The Spoon Carbon Plug Cover sheds a few grams and changes the look of the engine bay.

To better complement the Spoon Aluminum Radiator we’ve installed an ASM Radiator Overflow tank that also increases the coolant reservoir capacity. Behind it is the ASM Street Oil Catch tank to catch blow-by oil through the PCV system.

Currently we’ll be using a pair of Recaro RS-G ASM Limited Ruby seats with a set of matching Recaro Side Protector ASM Limited II.

Can’t forget the Spoon 6speed Duracon Shift Knob. The lightweight composite material provides accurate shifts and will not change temperatures.

Finally moving on the the exterior pieces we got back from paint. The Spoon Aero Mirrors mount to the factory location and feature a more aerodynamic shape.

The lens has a wide angle view with a blue tint to reduce glare. The mirrors also fold up like the factory mirrors to avoid damage when struck.

Rear quarters panels cut, inner fender bent out to meet outerpanel, then sealed. Ready for Spoon Rear Fender installation with maximum clearance.

Spoon Rear Wide Fenders installed.

Spoon Front Wide Fenders installed.

Spoon S-Tai Bonnet installed.

Spoon S-Tai Front Bumper installed.

Spoon Front Grill for the S-Tai Bumper.

Spoon S-Tai Rear Bumper and Spoon 3D GT Wing.
