Re: Palio 1.2 8v turbo

Still trying to figure how to upload photos from my tablet

Well it's a 2001 1242 8v palio mpi so far I've bored out the throttle body to 40mm ,put in 440cc green top injectors from a vw, built a custom plenum intake and turbo exhaust manifold
Just received my .gt1544 turbo, busy test fitting it

Re: Palio 1.2 8v turbo

How are you going to get the ECU to recognise boost (and the bigger injectors)?

Other than that, looking good. .

Re: Palio 1.2 8v turbo

That's cool. I'll pop a link to your thread from the Cinq/Sei section (where most folk turboing FIRE engines hang out).

Re: Palio 1.2 8v turbo

No, not this one, not yet at least. Doesn't it use/have a cam position sensor? I do not see one on your cam cover...
