DDMWorks Original Product!
The Ariel Atom 2's with the 2.0L LSJ Ecotec engines have an air/water intercooler to cool the intake charge after it is compressed by the supercharger. That air/water intercooler absorbs the heat created by the compression and the water takes that heat to the front of the car where it goes through a front heat exchanger. The stock front heat exchanger that shipped with the car, sits parallel to the ground and works for short bursts, but then quickly starts to heatsoak. After a couple full throttle runs, we see the intake temperatures start to climb since the stock heat exchanger can not disapate the heat fast enough and the air/water system starts to get heatsoaked. Once that happens, the ECM in the car starts to pull timing and power starts to drop. After doing some testing we quickly realized that a more efficient heat exchanger would be needed.

Our goals were to create an upgraded heat exchanger that would fit in the stock location and allow us to run full throttle without heatsoaking like the stock setup. We approached this problem from a couple different directions to create our new heat exchanger. First, we worked to develop a larger heat exchnager with more volume than the stock unit to increase the capacity in the system. The increase in volume of the system allows more heat capacity before we see a rise in temperatures. Second, we made our larger heat exchanger is a full aluminum heat exchanger, with extruded cores and high silver content flux to allow fast efficient transfer of heat. This means that it can radiate heat much faster than the stock steel unit. Lastly, we ship the heat exchanger with a genuine SPAL fan that pulls 1300CFM of air through the heat exchanger to keep the intake temperatures cool.

This is a definite upgrade for any Atom that is driven hard. It is also available as part of our TVS expanded kit.
