    Sir Thanks. But none of these cars you mentioned has a CASA in Iloilo. So No. We are leaning over the Chevy Suburban, or Limo Starex, Discourage me not to!

    Recently saw a race chip which adds power while decreasing consumption, Does it work? any other modifications that works like that, which doesn't harms or put the car from losing the warranty. Thanks ^^

    Yes it does. I'd suggest you look for Racechip Pro or Unichip for this one. Many of our Tsikoteers here have installed these on their rides and gotten very favorable results. It gives the best results on electronically controlled, turbocharged rides though. There are plug and play versions of these chips so that they won't void the warranty of your car. So if you are looking at the Starex Limousine and Suburban ONLY, I'd suggest you get the Starex Limo and chip it for an extra 20-30 wheel horses or so.

    It's used to get the intake air cooler, for evaporative pressure due to the water and methanol blend sprayed into the intake manifold absorving some heat from the intake air. Just like an intercooler does in a turbocharged vehicle. BTW even a turbocharger can be a good way to deal with the fuel-efficiency since it enhances the combustion efficiency...

    sorry if i sounded a bit pessimistic on an earlier post. If your purpose is a daily-driver with all the finesse, Starex Limo would be my pick. If the purpose would be for occasional socialite events, or if you need to modify your ride as a bullet-proof transporter, Suburban would be my pick. But it's just me and I might also err.

    As far as chips, I have no experience with those enhancements, so far... but i think they only work on diesel engines with crdi technology.

    You can chip gasoline vehicles. You can "chip" anything that has an ECU.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Recently saw thread how the LC200 lacks features, which kinda sucks being the luxury suv of toyota.
    LC200 doesn't have exclusivity (more common in the road) unlike suburban(very appealing, recently watch transformers 3) and Starex limo, which is rare.
