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?
