Proton Saga BLM / FL Turbo kits!

With the recent launch of the Proton Preve, let us take a look at the potential for turbocharging Proton's more cost effective vehicles. The Saga BLM and FL/FLX, with a capacity of 1.3L to 1.6L, proves to be a reliable lightweight, daily drive machine. However, by retrofitting it with a turbo kit, boosting at a modest 1.1 bar, the Proton Saga's Campro engine awakens and becomes a total beast! This prime example shows a stock 1.3L Proton Saga BLM converted to 1.6L using a stroker kit. With metal head gasket, and a bolt on turbo kit, this Saga BLM turbo dyno-ed at GT Auto Sunway with 190whp and 290Nm of torque! Quite impressive compared to the Proton Preve don't you think?

    1. Wow! Not bad. My Wira 4G92 1.6 Bolt on Turbo only makes 183whp, boosting at 0.6 Bar. Those figures are fantastic!

  4. quite a tempting prospect, but what about maintenance, and reliability?

    1. Reliability is no problem as long as you boost under 0.5 bar. Still powerful! Maintenance you will have to change engine oil more often, probably every 5k km if possible!

      Cheers!

    1. Yup it can, I have seen many Persona with turbo kit. It is the same campro engine! Check it out on lowyat.net and zerotohundred.com, several people are selling campro turbo kits for saga, satria neo, persona etc.

      Enjoy!
