    USA Special Edition Atom

    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater Looks like a sneak peek of a special edition coming out from TMI. Interesting frame color, motor choice and oil cooler option. Cannot wait for press release and final specs! -hamster

    The frame color is different to say the least and will probably take some time to get accustom to. But the motor look like a Frankenstein (k20 head with a k24a2 lower end). If tuned correctly these motors can easily produce 300hp/200tq N/A. Might give a k24z7 supercharged atom a run for its money whilst reving to 8k+. -Hamster

    Looks like a K20 to me. Vertical bolt spacing on the right engine mount's too short.

    Not sold on paint either. The valve cover is a custom powdercoat too. To my knowledge Honda never had a gloss-red coating there.

    Not street-legal.

    aero wishbones, are nice.

    YEp, I make ~280 and 180 at the wheels in my Atom with heavy 17x9s that are 275 wide. With a better header I'm told I'd pick up 30 rwhp. I run just an EWP, so I get a few up top.

    On 91 too. would make more with more timing and 93 or e85.

    That is exactly the wrong color of gray.

    so this car costs $99k, has less hp then the current supercharged version, and the color looks like primer?

    umm?
