We are pleased to be able to offer the HTV1320 supercharger as an upgrade for the Ariel Atom 2. This supercharger was developed by Harrop of Australia as a direct upgrade for the M62 found stock on the ECOTEC equipped Ariel Atom 2. This upgraded supercharger is 30% larger than the production equipped M62 it replaces (1.3L vs. 1.0L) and because of the new rotor design of the TVS series superchargers, a great deal more efficient also. The new rotor design provides much better efficiency than the older style M62 superchargers especially at higher pressures due to the four lobes instead of 3 found on the earlier superchargers. These new TVS superchargers also have more twist to the rotors, also increasing efficiency at higher pressures.
All TVS superchargers have a 2.4 pressure ratio (approx 20.5psi) capability and a thermal efficiency that exceeds 70 percent, which enables more compact packaging and greater output. The twin four-lobe rotors feature 160-degree twists. The higher helix angle of the rotors coupled with a redesigned inlet and outlet ports, improves the TVSs air-handling characteristics without increasing the overall size of the unit. Modified engines will certainly be able to take advantage of the benefits offered from the HTV1320-LSJ. Further features of the HTV1320 include: Eatons latest TVS technology in supercharging means higher efficiency. This is a bolt-on solution for the 2.0L LSJ ECOTEC engine with no plate adapters required. Installation is relatively simple, requiring the removal of the production M62 and rereplacement of it with the HTV1320-LSJ. The supercharger setup also offers easily swapped Interchangeable pulleys allowing change in boost pressures and flow with other mods - the supercharger ships with an 85mm diameter pulley, alternative diameters are available. Designed to work with either the stock throttle body or the larger LS4 throttle body which can be ordered. Durable powder-coat finish is standard. The HTV1320 is a sealed unit and has a 100k mile service interval with OE-quality. Although the HTV1320 is mechanically a bolt-on solution, re-calibration of the ECU and larger fuel injectors will be needed. Also we recommend the addition of a better exhaust system like our twin muffler Atom exhaust.
- Due to the nature of this item, full payment is due at time of order. International orders (non-US) must be paid via Money Order or Cashiers check.
