The Vitz RS 1.3

Hi,

I`m a happy owner of a japanese import of a 1.3 Vitz RS. it is equipped with the 2nz-fe engine that in normal production develops 86bhp.
However i`ve always been suspecting that actually this Vitz RS version develops some more power because it really is a little performer. It behaves better than most 100+bhp hatches like the 110bhp golf tdi and the 100bhp 2.0tdi 16V opel astra.
From a yaris club in italy i came to know that this 2nz-fe engine was mapped with a special ecu that ups the power to 102bhp. Anyone knows about this edition of the Vitz?

Well, I believe you have the previous model Vitz (NCP10 I believe), which is substantially lighter than the new one, and low weight always helps with performance

Unfortunately most of the members here are from North America where this model was never available, so knowledge is limited. You ought look around the European as well as Central American sub-sections of the forum where the 1.3 RS is also available.

Why don't you pop it onto a chassis dyno and work it out from there (if it has extra power from a standard Vitz).
