    Honda Turbo stage kits

    Is there any info on the official turbo stage kits for the Atom 3?

    I see that Forman has a 2014 stage 1 turbo Atom 3 on order for September delivery (pic isnt related).

    Did I miss any official information on the new turbo kits?

    I saw on a sector111 news letter that a turbo option was going to become available. I thought maybe Sector111 developed it because that's all I heard of it.

    On a side note from your link, 100k??? Wtf? Am I missing something?

    I'll be seeing Shinoo and Mark at the next SRA race in 12 days, I'll be sure to ask them for more info. I think a Turbo kit was being developed by Forman then TMI decided to develop their own official kit for sale direct from the factory. From a cost standpoint it should come in a little cheaper than a supercharger right?

    It would be very interesting if Ariel decided to install the "near production" 2015 Civic type R 2.0L factory turbo engine and dual clutch 8 speed transaxle into future Atoms..!

    Looks great, but the turbo is on the wrong side of the engine!

    I believe Franz Forman is the one that initiated this kit and TMI liked it so they should be offering it as an option.

    Mark said they were testing it on VIR last week and are doing street testing this week. They still have some final fit and finish work to do too I guess, the intercooler install upfront for instance meant moving the battery into the front storage space so it could be installed there. Pricing I'm told all-in will come in slightly above the Supercharger option.

    Lordy Lord...that sure looks like a plumbers nightmare. Haven't seen that many tubes since the last Noble I looked at..and that caught fire shortly thereafter!
