ATS A5000

I have put a few miles on my A5000 now and I am pretty happy with it. I haven't gotten around to checking backpressure on it yet but it is very easy to drive on the street, only problem now is that if I go much over half throttle the filter minder gauge on my afeII pg7 gets sucked all the way in, I will have to address that soon.
Here are some pics:
next to the QSSB

Kind of a tight fit in the OBS. I had to do a minor amount of firewall massaging to get the compressor housing to fit.



Enjoy.

Re: ATS A5000

I'm not sure what they may have changed but I would definitely not call mine laggy.
What size injectors were you running at the time? I am using 250's with fuel pulled out of the tuning until it gets live tuned.

Re: ATS A5000

How does it spool compared to the QSSB? The QSSB looks like it would fit inside it, and the QSSB looks big compared to the stocker!

The "fuel pulled" part explains why it isn't laggy. Make sure you don't flood it with fuel down low and they will all light off rather well.

Re: ATS A5000

Is that just an overpriced S400 or is there something special to it?

it's not an S400, its a K31 cartridge with a 2.8 Billet comp wheel and larger exhaust wheel, and a 1.00 A/R housing, S400 is a 3.0 with a cast wheel.

There are many sizes of an S400, not just a 3.0.

yeah, but primarily if you buy an off the shelf s400 vs and off the shelf k31 or Aurora 5000, you would be getting a 3.0. k31 and Aurora 5000's are *generally* gonna be a 2.8 unless you bushing it down, or change housings ect. thats all I'm saying.
