DDMWorks twincharged Ariel Atom

The Ariel Atom received a DDMWorks Twin-charged kit that provides a powerful setup combining the best attributes of turbo-charging and supercharging for one of the most fun cars on the road. The twin-charged Atom has only 3.4 lbs. per horsepower, a better power to weight ratio than a Bugatti Veyron or an Enzo Ferrari. The twin-charge kit is carefully tuned to deliver maximum horsepower, while also keeping drivability and engine in mind. The boost for the kit for the 2.0-liter LSJ ECOtec is accomplished with a Borg-Warner S256 Turbocharger working together with a Harrop HTV1320-LSJ. This TVS technology is also used on the new Corvette ZR1 supercharger, and dramatically increases the efficiency of the supercharger. Tubing, manifolds and tuning for making the entire system work together is done in house by DDMWorks. With the kit, the output was increased to 375 horsepower from 230, which means a 145 horsepower gain. The starting price for the twin-charged Ariel Atom upgrade starts at $ 6.500 installed with the TVS based systems and larger gains available with other options and configurations. The upgrade is available with installation and tuning done onsite at their facility in South Carolina. DDMWorks can be found in Greenville, SC and it manufactures specially made performance upgrade parts for Solstices, Skys, Ariel Atoms and Miatas.
