VIDEO: Speedworks Myvi Turbo
Speedworks have made bolt-on turbo kits seem so simple, but there’s definitely nothing simple about their Myvi 1.3 turbo kit that we tested: 136hp and 174Nm torque. The torque more than anything provides an incredible surge of acceleration, yet the result is so smooth that you can cruise down the highway at speeds that would leave other Myvis gasping for air.
We thought it was such an incredible day-to-day car that we put it through our usual Hillclimb route, and also the rigours of Sepang! It excelled in the twisty mountain trail, but if you’d want to take it tracking often we’d recommend some upgraded brakes.
In the end, we were left incredibly impressed. For a day-to-day runabout that can (sort of) cover more hardcore exuberant driving, and all for just RM 7,600, the Speedworks Myvi Turbo is a fabulous achievement!
