Default Re: Palio 1.6 Turbo Charged

Slipped from my mind in my previous post. How is the reliability of the timing belt post modification. Almost all European engine stick to mandatory 60K replacement of timing belt, tensioner, other bearings and this engine is no exception being interferance engine the damage will be more. Does this have effect on the duration of replacing the belt.

Regards,
Vijay

Is the clutch uprated ? If yes may I know what you have used.
Can you tell me which radiator is being used. My car's radiator is already due for replacement and constantly overheated.
Have you pushed the revv limiter from the stock 7200rpm to higher as this engine can easily rev to 10000 rpm?
The oil cooler was also changed and relocated to accommodate the intercooler.
Does palio got oil cooler?
The clutch is not uprated, although we have been looking around without success for an upgrade kit.

Rev limit is stock - we have not increased it. I would definitely prefer lighter conrods, forged low compression pistons and octane if I were to increase it.

The oil cooler is for the power steering oil - not engine oil - it is just a single coil without fins.

I do not see any increased load on the camshaft / timing belt due to the modification. However, we did change the timing belt kit.

Cracking the ecu is not a problem for us with the Unichip - we have had not problems at all - the oe ecu does not throw a check engine light even with this level of modification !
