Bravo Tjet 1.4t

iAM FROM SOuTH aFRICA, WE JUST PURCHASED A T-JET, IT DOES NOT GO ANYTHING LIKE MY UNO TURBO although its quoted 110kw, it has 53000km on the clock,when i floor the throttle in 3rd, it does not feel like it has a turbo, like to push in th seat feeling, just flat,feels like a normally aspiarted car, is this correct?Also the intake pipe before the throttle body is very hot after a drive almost feels as hot as the compressor housing.when the warranty runs out, i m gonna try fit a T25 garret to it, can anyone tell me what the difference between the 88kw and the 110 kw version is? and is turbo sizes different?

Re: Bravo Tjet 1.4t

The Bravo weights about 300KG more than an uno turbo so that going to make it considerably slower for a start.

Re: Bravo Tjet 1.4t

Bravo 1.4 TJet 120bhp = 0-60 9.3s
Bravo 1.4 Tjet 150bhp = 0-60 8.7s

Uno turbo MUST be faster than the 150 bravo.

Re: Bravo Tjet 1.4t

150 tjet is 8.5 sec from 0-60mph and 8.2 secs with the sport button activated.....

The bravo is heavier than a uno that might explain your feeling in the seat.

Try the 150bhp or 165bhp diesel and im sure you wouldnt complain of that

You should try feeding it with some RPM before flooring it, it doesn't just fly on third when you floor it from low RPM...Feeling like a non-turbo is definitely not normal, it shouldn't be much different feeling from your Uno Turbo.

The OP said 110kw which would be about 147bhp. Sounds like he has a 150Tjet, just how its specced in SA!

Passengers dont know that! anyway half a second isnt that noticeable and top speed is same, id rather have a feeling of more torque/power rather than 0.5 or wotever of a second

Re: Bravo Tjet 1.4t

Its going back to the workshop, before we bought it the turbo was replaced, i drove a tjet sport and Punto Tjet and there is a big difference, my turbo definatley does not kick in on ours feels like a 1.2 Palio.
By the way, how do i get the radio to switch off automatically when i turn the ignition key off?

Yeah, but then the guys in the car next to yours in a drag race would definitely notice it

By doing what it says on page 24 of the Sound System handbook.

The arrow buttons either side of the volume knob turn this function on/off.
The display will say 'AUTO ON' or 'AUTO OFF'.

The system will automaticaly turn off after 20 minutes from when you turn off the ignition in 'AUTO OFF' mode.

Re: Bravo Tjet 1.4t

My instructions were a bit misleading. I think you have to enter a menu by holding the 'MENU' button for a couple of seconds, followed by a few short presses until you get to 'AUTO ON' or 'AUTO OFF'. Then use the arrow buttons to scroll between on and off.
