The Suzuki Jimny has already proven to be quite robust (here the special video test), but if what has been done so far was not enough, there is now a new elaboration with turbo it shows even better all the potential hidden under this small off-road vehicle.
Thanks to the work of the technicians of AtuoPlus Sportszentrium, a computer from the Philippines, the 1.5-liter engine now goes well 200 HP.
Work of a tuner passionate about Jimny
Mr. Gono, the owner of the workshop, claims that the success of the latest generation is due to its robustness and reliability. He has always considered himself a Jimny fan and the latest generation has impressed him a lot. So when the opportunity arose for process it he hasn't thought twice.
From about 70 HP as standard, the preparation of the engine with the addition of a turbo brought the power to 200 HP, a value remarkable considering the capacity of the original engine. The kit is made in the UAE by a company called call F-Performance and is specifically designed for this model. The pieces arrived after a month and the result is truly remarkable.
Among the changes there are: a new intercooler, new injectors, petrol pump and the can not miss ECU (control unit) dedicated, which was borrowed from a Lamborghini. Obviously there is no shortage of new wiring and sensors to keep the system at bay. From this point of view then the kit is very well cared for.
The other tricks
Obviously the standard set-up of the Jimny is impossible to manage this power, but thanks to a kit of lowered suspensions and stiffened by the US company RS-R, now the small off-road should have all the credentials to make its engine run at full speed.

Other modifications consist of new rims that allow for wider tires and the original disc brakes have been replaced with a kit in front AP Racing definitely more suitable. To complete the processing there are the Recaro sports seats and a detail that once again refers to the alter ego in the XL version of the Jimny the Mercedes G-Class, given the double side discharge typical of AMG models.
