Hey,
What was the project you had going this past week when my wife and I stopped in to get the Probeam,backbone, HF converter and venom brace installed? It looked like an ecotec engine mounted in the back of a frame of some sort.

No, the one you saw is another one that we are finishing up, it is only going to have 500hp ;)

It would be awesome to have a street legal version. Imagine pulling out of the garage for a backroads spin.
Atoms are street legal. There are 3 of them parked in the garage below me on nice days...

Juts checked their website. Starting around $52,000 and nearly everything is an option. That explains why my wife hasn't got me one. ;)

Yeap, in the pictures of the first Atom 700 you can see the license plate on it, same with the one we are finishing up here now.
My wife spotted one in a Starbucks parking lot in LA 6 or 7 years ago, and the guy was downright impressed she knew what it was. Ah, Top Gear.

Yes, there is an array of interesting cars where I work. Like I said, I know of at least 3 Atoms in one garage. Saw some sort of Lotus 7 replica (possibly a Catterham) the other day. Still see more Lotus Elises than I do Solstices though.

So when will the twincharging kit be available for the Solstice? :D
This is not something that we feel can be done as a kit really well, and really works well for a car that already has a supercharger on it. Otherwise, you have to essentially buy a turbo kit, supercharger kit and make them all play well together.

Although saying all that, it definitely can be done on a kappa ;)
