Skyactive G 120ps vs 148ps

HI All,

Is there any reason why on the Sport Nav FW (GT model) in europe the Skyactive G engine is set at 120BHP while the non E.U version is set at 148BHP?

The strange thing is if you get the AWD version in Europe you will then get the 148Bhp version.

Thanks,
Ganni

p.s. sorry if this was already posted.

Thanks for the fast response, so basically it is the same engine with some sort of ECU/map with a less powerful curve...

Can this be fixed with a re map?

Thanks,
Ganni

I would say, almost certainly.

One tuning firm in the UK says that is has discovered that all versions of the 2.0 Skyactiv-G engine are mechanically identical, whatever the indicated stock output. They offer an ECU chip upgrade that can boost the 120bhp figure up to 170bhp with torque increased to 163lb ft.

Sounds to me like a shortcut to having your warranty voided.

Im checking this out. The BBR seems like a traditional company thats knows what its doing.

So far i dont know about engine warranty, but heard toyota have accepted certain types of "chips". So its not impossible.

Anyway i think theres a good possibility to get 170hk in the stock 2,0 skyactive 120hk. Its the same engine as in cx-5, mx-5 and mazda 3.

This is just a stage 1- tuning, with only the chip. I would avoid going any further whith a different excaust, air intake and so on. Remember its a high-tech engine that probably dont like someone fiddling about.

And of course i would avoid any chips from ebay.

It has enough horsepower for what I need. It does seem to be an obsession with some people, same as the number of cup holders

Still.................mustn't grumble
