Hi folks,

Don't have a redline per se, but my car (Ariel Atom) is powered by a supercharged Ecotec so there is some commonality between us.

Signed up to check out some of the more technical info on the Ecotec, and maybe do a little socializing too. I'll try not to be too weird. :freak5:

For those of you who are interested, here's a pic of my Atom:

Ooooo....an Atom....

I wish I had expendable cash, but being in college sucks sometimes.

Lots of good info here, just spend some time poking around and you'll find a lot.

It's powered by a 300hp 2.0L supercharged Ecotec. I don't have too much more technical info about it (yet)...that's one of the reasons I joined this board. I figure I'll learn more about the powerplant here. :)

Very nice man..very nice. I'm not sure if they use our same PCM or not.. I wonder if they changed any internals or not with the 300hp build..hmmmmmm or if it's 300bhp or 300whp

Had to ask, lol. I'm very curious if the car has the "Stage 3" PCM in it. You have to meet up with someone with HP Tuners access to get that thing scanned! PLEASE! lol.

Do you know anything about the ECM? Is it OBDII compatable?

I assume, though it's stage III, it's not running nitrous?

I'm sure they have there ways of eeking out 300 hp w/o a bottle lol. Hell stage II with a different pulley and better tune can easily give you 300 crank, and with some work 300 whp.

I assume that his car is not running an A/C compressor, and they may have even swapped a smaller (amperage wise) alternator in there, too, so that'd already give him a headstart in power.

See, now the last review/article I saw on the atom was that they were available w/ the base 205hp LSJ, or with the stage kit upgrades, never heard a 300hp rating, but I wouldn't doubt it if they used a similar build as the GMPD.
