Re: My EVO sport

Multiair egineers around the world agree that the MA unit needs as thinner oil as possible cause it runs through the MA alla the time and has to lubricate everything perfectly, so it cannot damage it,in worst case scenario it will consume it so i will go back to 5-40.
New 0-30 lubricants such as ENEOS keep really good characteristics even in same high temps as 5-40 would do.Also, without an intercooler on summers i keep my foot up even with 5-40 (at least as long as i have stock intercooler) so no fear.
Lastly,new specs for Alfa Romeo G MY 2014 manufacturer reccomend 0-30 so we will see....

Ok, apart if it has a revised engine (I dont think so) you have less risks than I was imagining.
Interesting, I think they are doing this to lower consumption.

MA engineers around the world ? I dont think anyone will give another recommendation than what is in car manual / official tech docs.

I understand thinner oil will be better for MA unit, but with lowering hot value risk of breaking oil film raise. A lot of people increase this value when they go on track to avoid this case of dramatic issue.
Effectively, if you are not always full throttle you should not have any issue.

Re: My EVO sport

Maybe i didn;t described it correct, i mean even in 5-40 every lubricant has different behaviour than another depending on addings etc so the thinner your lubricant even in 5-40 the better.
And this is logival if you consider that it has to run through multiair all the time.
But as i said time will tell.
Itried them now that i have got 15.000 km and there is no "risk" so that i can share the results.

Re: My EVO sport

Good news lately.
Went for ecu upgrade because of the exhaust and the wastegate.
Now from 165 my Punto runs on 175 hp with the same torque which even high revs is still there.My car now accelerates reaaaally good and you feel that she holds the power even in high revs.The overboost gives you a slight kick tha you couldn't clearly notice before.

Re: My EVO sport

my god thats a gorgeous car mate.... usually not a fan of maroon/crimson but it suits it really well. I love my car but I wish I could have had a bigger engine 1.4 8v and you can feel it start to struggle with a fall car.

Re: My EVO sport

Some information about Our turbine and ECU.
This little Garret we own has got a small wiring in it that works as an electronic wastegate apart from the original mechanical one.This thing makes things difficult because can read up to 1,1 bar maximum stable boost no matter what boost you ask for even when you remmap it.
I found a greek programmer who worked on it extensively and can disable it in order to put any turbo on EVOs or can just add any boost you like without holdbacks of the electronic wastegate.
On Friday i'm gonna have a new ECU update.
Some infos.

max boost:1.5bar@1750 rpm
stable boost:1.2bar
boost at rev limiter:0.9bar
Rev limiter: 6800 rpm

Power output:190bhp
Torque: 290Nm

All these require a free-flow panel filter and full stainless exhaust.With my additional mods (forge wastegate etc) and the software optimized for 98 octane (as i always work with 100 oct fuel)
over 190 will be the result.
Will keep you informed - just wish me luck

Re: My EVO sport

New ECU Update for my Evo and here are some prons and cons.
Pros:
from 3.000 till 6.800 the power output is amazing (Forge wastegate was replaced by the stock one again)
I had some drag with a friend.Last time i was 2 cars ahead, now i'm 100 meters ahead (no joking)
Currently working at 1,2 bar, when the ECU is fully adapted goes 1,3 bar stable and then i'm gonna give you some video.
Some maps are locked and ready, that means that 1,4 bar of boost at third gear is gonna become 1,5 when i change intercooler, he locked maxes so that i don't break anything till i change cooler.
CONS:
Forge wastegate is on sale now
Overboost is compeletely disabled which makes till 3.000 rpms the car to feel slower (until turbine spools up for good)
Currently at third and fourth gear when i am at 4.500 rpms and higher sometimes instantly loses boost like i take off the foot from pedal and gives back boost instantly,i contacted and he said to me to wait for the adapt,but i imagine wastegate is the reason cause we had to tune it quicly to test the programm and maybe its position is not compeletely correct.
Stay tuned for more infos!
