    Committed to purchase last night

    Well, I've been looking at purchasing an atom for some time, and the right one (for me) seems to have come along. Thanks to Mark S for the words of encouragement and Steve (the seller).

    Hope to go pick her up this weekend.

    Atom 2 300
    Multiple upgrades by sector 111 and tmi



    Hope to meet many of you and contribute in some way.

    Hi, Beckertb! Welcome!

    Was this Atom on eBay? If so, I was trying to get a friend of mine to purchase it. Either way, you won't regret owning one.

    Where are you located?

    Welcome.

    I see a side intake. that means you have some interesting upgrades. Would like to hear what they are.

    Welcoming bow to Beckertb!

    Nice catch Bolus. Now I wonder how I didn't notice that side intake.

    I'm going to guess Harrop, Tom's hoop intercooler, maybe Sector111 exhaust

    Yes Steve. It was on eBay. I hope I don't regret it. I'm excited to go pick it up this weekend.

    I'm in Beaumont, tX (about 70 miles east of Houston)

    From Sector111 an aftercooler upgrade, smaller pulley, intake, injectors, ecu swap with tune, hytech exhaust with cat delete

    It's similar to the upgrade on this car:

    Hoping this improves drivability, too

    smaller pulley isn't necessarily smaller than a stock 300 or 245, it's only smaller than a stock 205.

    just fyi,

    spanky's car was outfitted identically and produced no more power than stock and after he sold he the new owner had it tuned with Hp tuners so it's a custom tune instead of a canned tune,

    picked up 15whp.

    just fyi.

    if you decide you want more power in the future, do a supercharger swap / injectors / tune......internal piston upgrades if within your budget is highly recommended.


    that intercooler if it's in the hoop is the best intercooler you can get, so that's a huge plus.
