I don't know what atmospheric is, but N/A is w/o a turbo or any forced induction.

He might mean turbo. They got blow off valves which you can set to atmospheric. I dont know much about them yet but the turbo spools up producing a boost usually felt around a certain rpm range. N/A engines is just straight power all the way up the line.
