    try to touch base with Auto.Xer (a.k.a. Ferman Lao) of Fusion R. They have turbo charged a new Honda Jazz 1.3 CVT.

    They basically installed a turbo, intercooler, and a piggyback chip (SMT).

    Based on the dyno readings at Autoplus, hp and torque rose very significantly!

    IMO... the only 1.3L engine worth boosting is from the Mazda RX-8. :bwahaha:

    apparently not - well... at least as far as FusionR's experience on a particular Honda Jazz is concerned.

    Personally though, I'd rather buy a higher displacement car.

    a 1.8 or 2.0 compact sedan would be much more logical, better yet turbocharge the 1.8/2.0 sedan and you're good to go!

    If that 1.3L car is just your beater car, and you have money to burn, why not?

    mataas ang Php/hp cost for a 1.3L project car eh.

    and i think ung mga gumagawa ng ganun, para di halatang matulin..kasi iisipin ng tao, 1.3L lang un....kaya makakagawa ng frustration sa hahamon sa kanila...

    according to Ferman, the jazz (turbo) performance is almost at the same level of a Civic SiR before the vtec kicks in.

    di naman siguro useless, but probably not worth the money you're gonna spend.

    Sabihin na natin mag spend ka ng around 80K-100K (all-in na yan, pati iba pang kailangan, IC, fuel management, injectors, whatever), the power you will be gaining is not that much in relation to the the amount you will be spending and it's still a 1.3 with a lot of limitations.

    If I'm in that position, mag swap na lang ako ng makina with a bigger displacement.

    my 2 cents

    pero most 1.3L cars are lightweight, almost or a bit over 1000kgs:

    vios, jazz, getz, charade, pride...supercarry/every, hi-jet vans... kung maging 160hp-200hp engine parang lilipad na ung sasakyan..parang power ang weight ratio..

    pero kung figures alng pagbabasehan, parang lugi ka sa gagastusin mo sa 1.3L car mo...

turbocharging a 1.3L engine: useless?
