Mazda Skyactiv 2.5L EFR 7163 Turbocharger Kit ? OrangeVirus Tuning
That's about on-par for most turbo bolt-on setups. Especially during initial release. Most turbo setups, after they've been out for a few years, drop to about $2500-$3000 but $4000 is reasonable. Not something I'd pay, though, as I'm happy with my OVT tune.380HP???
I thought they were shooting for 300HP?
I'd love to have it, but I think Mat said it was near 4K for it. Unfortunately, that's out of range for my play money
Any more info on the turbo kit? Price estimates? Drop-in-ability?Lots of cool stuff coming for skyactiv owners early next year.
-Turbo kits are in production right now, we'll have some teaser pics soon.
- We are also making drop-in "crate" High output N/A Long blocks. Fully ported, cams, strengthened bottom end, etc.
I generally like my 6, but it has always been somewhat gutless and has never given the 30 MPG avg I expected. Heck, the current tank (in admittedly cold weather) is showing only 22.2 MPG.
Also cannot STAND that it seems to have no torque cruising on the highway. Damn thing needs to downshift to maintain speed even on light inclines, and MPG is nothing special (around 32-34, I've maybe seen the advertised 38 once on a long trip). It feels like it has a lot of frontal area, as responsiveness and fuel economy fall off a cliff over 65 mph. Overall, the lack of guts and MPG has me driving like a little old man, and I ain't dead yet!
Do you think the tune would help my issues? Also, is the tune "transferable?" My lease ends 1/17; if I like the tune, might lease a newer 6 and use the tune on it (returning current car to stock before turning in).
Many thanks in advance!
