TOO MUCH BOOST? Troubleshooting The BLOWN UP Engine In My Ariel Atom

  Shikime 80,472


20 ditë më parë

I bought a 2011 Ariel Atom with a big turbo Honda K20 engine. 500hp, 1600lbs with the driver, sitting on Mickey Thompson E/T Streets. The owner delivered it to me at Airstrip Attack in Independence, KS and I had an incredible day racing it. It only made 4 passes before it started misfiring and smoking. Now we've got it back at the shop and it's time to go on a tour of the car and see just how bad it's hurt.
Shop Motul:
Common Questions:
What motorcycle do I ride? A few. Ducati 1198, Honda Goldwing, Honda Grom, Honda Ruckus
What do I do for a living? Make ALpost videos.
Can you wheelie? No, I suck.
Are you fast? Sort of. I suck mostly though.
Where can I keep up with you off the bike?
Instagram: WatchJRGo
Facebook: WatchJRGo (or JRGo, FB hates my branding)
Do you go to school? College, for 2 classes.
Why do you ride so dangerously? What do mean? I was doing 25.
Do you go to the track? Of course, hopefully there will be videos in the future.
Do you play video games? No, but I might stream N64 Goldeneye at some point. Twitch: WatchJRGo
Are you afraid the police will watch your videos and arrest you? Something something evidence something something warrants and due process of law

So you are not familiar with any other Ariel Atoms on ALpost ? I take it you are not a "savagegeese" fan. Mark , "Mr. Savagegeese", reviewed one around 4 years ago and is now an Atom owner . He has quite a few videos of him driving on the street and on a race course . Insanely fast car ! Just HEARING it makes the heart race .

Pretty sure it dropped a valve run dual valve springs on the new motor with that power level on a stock motor the stock valve springs cant take it and the valves float

I'm sorry people harassed you to the point of defending yourself... even if you made everyone else(ME) laugh... I could agree with you...but then we'd both be wrong. Funny. Just tell anyone to read the Ariel Adam's history... I can't imagine your racecar's creator being upset because you're using the car he designed to have crazy fun with to drag race and be happy. 😉

Just wanted you to know that your credibility has gone so far up with so many people that you were not mad at the seller (when it blew up.) It takes a big man to do that.

Hey John, I was surprised to hear you say you'd get a new engine right away. If everything is good on the engine except the cylinder/piston/ring on #1, would it be better to have a machine shop bore out the cylinders and just replace pistons and rings? I'm not sure the advantages/disadvantages there.

Want something really different? Put a 2.3T out of a 2007+ Saab 9-5 in it check out the Saabiac videos on ALpost where a guy put one in a 69 pontiac drag chassis. It totally rips a full size set of tubbed out slicks. These are torque monsters with a really broad full-power band (1800-6500rpm) right from the factory, let alone after a few stage tune upgrades. Not too many 4's can break both tires loose without clutching, at 45mph on stage 3 tune with LSD in a car like a 2001 Viggen. Plus the sound of that Saab motor is sick. Either way, 500hp in that thing is the best thing you could have added to your collection!

What fuel is the car tuned on??? Watching that previous video where it blew up It was very cold out I wonder if the tune was set up for the colder air. Usually you lower the boost when it's colder out.

It dropped a piston due to cold weather. Cold is turbo weather it also pushes things harder. Get some meth injection on the build.

Hey, that steering wheel needs two clicks to be fully seated. It will only go on one way. It looks like you only got to the first click in this video. It will come off in your hands if it is not well seated. It looks like an SRA (Spec Race Atom) to me, at least the chassis does. The street versions don't have that angled bar from the roll bar by the driver's and passenger's head/shoulder area. TMI is awesome to work with so give them a call if you need some help. Also, there is a reservoir kit that I would recommend to replace that cap with a real automotive type that will hold up better. I have an SRA myself. It is a blast!

This is why a turbo or supercharger car needs to have the rings shaved slightly, otherwise when the engine heats up, the rings over expand and bust the piston like you see here. I’m willing to bet that was the cause of the failure. It did happen on your 4th pull, you said it yourself they didn’t do anything to the engine when they put the turbo on it. And it just only ever ran down the drag strip. Likely one ot two trips down the drag strip a day so it never got up to temp to cause the failure.
