450km is good dy, that is what my forester does in town and is NA only.....lol
8KM/L? I'm testing out FC for the Evo I'm managing now keeping boost to 0.01 and below. Last few runs were stupidly bad FC
4G63T I think all like that loh.........
I'm testing again now, trying to be as patient as possible. Lol.
If i saw an Evo being driven by a driver with tight-ass face then confirmed its you...All those patient trying desperately to hold back the urge. The stress will be transferered to yr face.
Why are all these turbo owners trying to stay off boost? Kinda defeats the purpose of owning such a vehicle
Sense of achievement and bragging rights....hahahah.
When they know they cant get better result then the normal daily boosting take place again. I said this coz long time ago i did that but on normal everyday cars. The figure are all still in my head...Viva 850 M is 18km/l , BLM auto is 12.6km/l, Waja 1.8 is 14km/l, Pajero LO is 9km/l before top overhaul and 11km/l after top overhaul, EX5 is 23km/l. Now, i be lying if i said i can still achieve that figure.
Just for curiosity, I always want to know the best my cars can achieve either in FC, or acceleration, or top speeds. Knowing all those kinda gives indication of how healthy the cars are especially is they're still with stock engines.
Of course in the case of Evo, since it's also pretty thirsty, not wise for the wallet to keep boosting too. Lol. I don't want to kill my engine too soon either especially if I keep boosting in the middle of hot noon days.
Keeping your engine well maintained should not be a problem, built to boost...
Hahaha I don't think you can see my face thru the tinted windows. But if you see a yellow Evo 9 with a P sticker behind then you got me. Lol.
Probation for using a turbo car?
Ya so far so good, been driving it quite a lot during weekends, on and off boost, day and night, everything looking stable.
I don't stay off boost all the time. I just boost only when needed. We're all civilized people right? hehehe
So far I've only managed 120km for the first quarter bar of petrol. Everytime after that there's always something that'll drop the FC to ridiculous amounts
That something is the 'when needed' moment u mentioned earlier right?
after rebuild, run in and retune, i go through following stress test:
- drive to penang and cruise around 160+- . <-- compare fuel consumption before and after rebuild. see how it fare(temp wise) on long journey with rpm 4k+.
- join drag competition. <-- not there to compete, just tekan kaw2 while theres engine guarantee from builder.
- drive to kl on weekdays during rush hour (morning, lunch hour, and evening when ppl balik kerja) <-- if anything fail during this time, tow is free to bengkel. hahaha..
so far so good. all checked out good. till now no issue. *touchwood. hahaha
the only time i see fc different is after tuning.
Whoa pretty hard stress test leh!
In a way, yes. ☺️
Marshall is hard core type
