    I think you may need to make an appointment with Curt. A compression and leak down test should be on your to do list. It will help you narrow down the cause for the misfire.

    Where have you driven your S2000?

      George, let us know when you're coming to see Curt. He is no longer at his old location, but I'm sure he would be willing to help out.

        If I lived over there, Curt would definitely be my go-to guy. I'm trying to find someone over here since I'm not keen on having to transport the car. Haven't located that person yet, but I have a lead on a couple of people.

          The misfire code could mean several things. I would start with a tuner shop that can do a little deeper into the cause. Common suspects are bad fuel injector and bad coils.

            Curt has switched coils before on to confirm the diagnosis.

              Injectors are a similar deal. It does not seem likely it’s a mechanical problem because it arrived so quickly.

                While you are at the tuner shop have them add a turbo. You need more excitement t in your life.

                    Street flooding and s2000s do not mix well. I am worried today.

                              That may be good for a silver car but I need a really big one for a red car

                                *shrug* Yellow cars like it a little wet.

                                Seriously though, I loved it during the Fredericksburg event when we had to stop to put the tops up because of the sudden downpour. It cooled everything off and it was a great adventure. Yeah, a much heavier deluge would have sucked, but it was just right. Nice that you placed the order in time!

                                  Rough night in Houston. We had large hail and the Porsche is blocking the carport. I covered the S and hope for the best.

                                      You should have been there the evening after the Speedracers and I scouted out wineries! I was more than a little worried driving in that monsoon!

                                        Flash floods are no joke. And with all the dips and gullies those roads traversed, I could see why you would be concerned in a more heavy rain. Glad it worked out well. I missed going to the wineries. It was a beautiful part of the country to visit and if I didn't have to drive through west Texas again to get there (long, straight, boring sections of Interstate roads), I would return in my own car. I would not hesitate to return with more time to relax and explore, but I think I would fly and get a rental.

                                        I know the enthusiasm level for Fredericksburg was less than ideal, but those who didn't go really missed out. It was a great S2KDays and I am glad to have had the opportunity to experience Texas hill country. Added benefit that I got to go see family in Austin too. And Petrol Lounge... THAT was an unexpected treat!

                                          I remember that storm. It rained so hard you could not 2 FT in front of the car.
