Default S2000 Build Suggestions

Hi, I'm looking to build a f series engine with some combos that's quite unusual for Hondas, but not for some others.

if you don't want to read my story, please jump to the end of this post.

I was going to build a K20/24 EK with a K20A2, a K24A2 and a K24A2 in hand. However, it seems that with all the cost, it will be better to just get a S2000 since my friend has one that need an engine rebuild in his garage.

The car will be for circuit trackdays. Not everything will be done right away, my money is not unlimited. It will be a stage by stage build, but I'm looking at the end result mostly.

At first, my plan was GTX3576R twin scroll with a build head, ITBs and stock rebuilt block.
It seems that people nowadays are doing CNC head porting.(4Pistons, etc.)
​​​​​Then, I found out I might have to import the car back to Asia. Where I live is full of small twisty touge roads and the track is about 4km a lap. So, I begin to think procharger with ITBs might be a better idea. Of course the rest of the car will be worked on. Don't worry about tuning as well.

​Recently, I've been back to Asia, visited the track, had a chat with my friend who races as a hobby and sat in his 993 on the Touge. My conclusion is a stock rebuilt with procharger.

Is there anyone who has done forced induction with ITBs with F20C/F22C compared to just forced induction? Will excursion home porting the head change the displacement emissions at a noticeable amount for import VI?

I would not touch the ports of a F20 or F22 S2k head, with your goals in mind.

I have never seen any reason to swap intake manifolds either FI or NA on the S2k either.

stock rebuild is pretty pointless as well per $ in comparison of just another used healthy engine for sale.

If wanting a K swap, wait for Balladesports R & D of their long rod / stroke F series deck plated build. especially if your wanting to track.
