Acceleration


Recommended Posts

Japanese domestic market cars are speed limited to 112mph (180kph) - it will comfortably get to that speed at about 3500rpm

Its maximum HP will be 280 - again, this is based on an agreement between the Japanese car manufacturers 'anti competition'.

 

My 3.5l shows consumption each minute, and averages between 8km/l and 12km/l (22 - 33mpg) occasionally I blip the accelerator when an audi or bmw is trying to attach itself to my rear, and consumption drops to around 5km/l (14mpg!)

 

So, I would honestly say, as long as you drive it sensibly, (my driving is a mix of city and rural), you should get at least 28-30mpg

My vehicle is a 2010 Alphard - same mechanics and tuning - If you really want more oomph (doesnt need it, will do 0-62mph in 7 seconds) you can get it stage 1 unlocked, adds about 15% moar powah

Hi Shane,

 

I have the earlier 3 litre V6 with a 5 speed

Yours will have a 6 speed.

 

These engines have plenty of torque. I doubt you will be disappointed.

They are very refined, and quiet

 

Hi Chris, you have my interest again?

What is the cost to unlock Stage 1, Is it a simple remap ? Does it improve torque ?

I'm just curious.

They are selling the firmwares - at 85euro for stage 1 - now there are several remappers in the south west, 2 of which I see are in/near exeter, I imagine for stage 1 they just connect up to the ecu with a re-programmer and upload the new ready to roll firmware, stage 2/3 are when you start taking up to 2 days to do roller tests and modify other things like the egr and maf - you can even have it so it makes those boyracer pops and bangs from the exhaust.

 

I image you are looking at a couple hundred, I dont think its worth the hassle.

Thanks Chris,

 

We must meet up in the New Year.

 

I don't want, or need, anyone messing with my MAF, or EGR.

 

I don't see myself as a 70 year old boy racer, listening to (and becoming annoyed by) turbo overboost relief valve crackle.

It is very unusual, but if that type of mood overwhelms me I have a supercharged 4.2 V8 sitting outside just waiting to burble and whine.

If I boot my Black Cat she flies !

 

Best regards    Roger
