After several revisions, Vesta 1.8-liter engine went to compete in speed with the sport version of the sedan.
Autoblogger Ruslan Bekoev showed how to ride “chipped” LADA Vesta 1.8 in comparison with the Vesta Sport. Note that the tuners have done a lot to win against the plant. In particular, the machine was “pereproshit” engine, a Spider-4-2-1 and ramjet exhaust Stinger.
In addition, the plans of the owner is to replace the factory camshafts. Not without changes in the appearance of LADA Vesta 1.8: the car got different bumpers and sills, as well as a black spoiler on the trunk. In total tuning “Vesta” have cost the owner approximately 15 000.
Measurements have shown that the car can accelerate to 100 km/h in 9.6 s, whereas the passport does not exceed the 10.2 s. If you believe the promises of “AVTOVAZ”, LADA Vesta Sport stock should accelerate worse. Interestingly, at the start of the forward left tuning car sports the “West” managed to catch her only to 140 km/h.
In addition, motorists measured the power of the engines of both cars on the dyno. Oddly enough, the performance of the LADA Vesta 1.8 was about the same as before the rework. Indicators of LADA Vesta Sport consistent with the stated manufacturer.
Recall, a sports version is offered exclusively with a 1.8-liter 16-valve engine, outstanding 145 horsepower. Paired with him can work only 5-speed “mechanics”.
