Default Performance Parts Availability?

Hi there. Considering an SX4 for my winter car. I'm accustomed to having 300+hp on my current AWD ride so I was wondering if anyone was aware of a turbo/supercharger kit for the SX4's 2.0L powerplant.

Best regards,

Ritz,

Ther is NOTHING on the market to make 300 HP in a SX4. There is a lot of work being done to make a more streetable car though.

Suggest you look at SX4 Forums - Powered by vBulletin under the performance posts. If you're looking to make a 'street racer' maybe this isn't the car for you.

Everything has it's price, is it HP or is it a dependable driver?

Heh. No, I wasn't looking for 300hp or in making a racecar (have one). Just looking for an additional 50-60hp which should be within reason for a mildly boosted 2 liter engine. That should make the 2900lb SX4 a lot more amusing. I may just get one anyway. I was looking at the XL7, but it's not available with a manual trans and it seems a bit overweight for my needs (though still quite reasonably priced).

Cheers,

Default RRM got what you want

suzuki sx-4 performance

It's all right there. They even have dyno data. They used a load bearing dyno so there was 31% drivetrain loss. They got 16 additional HP at the wheels on that dyno - which would be 23 HP at the crank when you consider the loss the dyno was reading. So that's 166 HP in the sx4. Not bad for three bolt ons and $700. The ECU is not up on the web site yet because they want some pre-orders before producing. It's $400. Then add $160 for the intake and $140 for the pulley = $700. The people who have installed the intake and pulley said it was VERY easy to do.

166HP is not huge but it's a great start. RRM said they would make an exhaust and other parts if the initial products sold well.

No - I don't work for them - I just know all about them from another forum.

The article mentions the "variable valve timing" kicking in. Can someone confirm that the SX4 engine in-fact does have VVT? I've seen that claim made in a review somewhere, but only the one time. Also, I wonder if the "piggy back" is a Unichip - probably not at that price?

To the best of my knowledge, the SX4 does not have any kind of VVT. The 2.0 in the SX4 is a de-stroked 2.3, which was used in the Aerio.

Default VIS not VVT

I THINK RRM is mistaking the VIS (variable induction system) for VVT. As far as I know, there is no VVT on the US version of the Sx4 (euro 1.6, yes). But it does have VIS, which makes is suck in more air at higher RPMs. I'd say a forgivable mistake........

As far as forced induction goes.. I don't think there is anything specific on the US market right now, but am sure that some are already in the works. I was told that in Japan, Suzuki has a factory turbo kit for the SX4...

I'm sure we'll see some parts coming soon, as Suzuki will be entering the 2008 WRC with this car, which should really put it on the map, so to speak.
