March turbo

You're think of the superturbo :)
There is a march turbo it was only sold in japan iirc. The same engine that is used in figaro's :)
I think that this might not be a March because it has Super S seats, no march rear lights, reverse lights, no jap boot lid and interior is the same as a GL. I'm thinking maybe someone converted it into a march.
On the other hand there is loads of proof saying that this is a super turbo, there must be some import documents for this somewhere. Apparently its only a 1L Micra GL automatic..
You are correct about the old ones having no super charger. They only had a MA10e-t same as the figaro. I got a tad confused there. Its been a very long day.


EDIT: Interior is correct except for the Super S seats. http://nissanmarch.46.forumer.com/superturbo-prototype-engine-t232027.html

H7 got it bang on :)

I thought that mas, its been wrongly declared on import, I know loads of people with skylines, scoobs and mr2s listed wrong..
The rear lights have been changed at some point I think, everything else is genuine. I wouldn't even know where to start if I was gunna make a replica. The dash its self would be a nightmare to find, never seen a digi dash, not even on the super turbos, along with bumpers and skirts :p

Thats what I was thinking mate, if it was a replica I give whoever did it props because wiring it all up would have been a pain! Most likely it is a March just maybe it had the boot/lights replaced at some stage in its life. Sadly we will never know. My mates turbo starlet got imported as a 1.3 (non turbo) auto. Theres normally always mistakes when cars are imported.

It is a shame though that the car has super s seats and no the march ones.

Yeah, its annoying. Can also guarantee it would be my fault if I got picked up on how its.declared. Had a look at vin plates its got jap writing everywhere , even on my sun visor. Deffo an import. The seats should be gone soon, and replaced with a red set of brides ;)

Hopefully these pics will work, but today I have basically replaced the rear arches. Iv been doing this all day :(

Boost is how much pressure the intake gas is under before squished, compression ratio is how much squish the engine makes.
In basic terms

That's 78 bhp once in the powerband.
This march turbo will carry 75bhp throughout
Bigger numbers dont always mean faster car
Thats true. I got the print out somewhere. Came with my car. Will post a pic. Was very consistent. The car goes great for what it is (1.2). Fastest 1.2 around where I am and keeps up with 1.4 polo gti's easy. Only downside is the standard carbs cant keep up in the high revs so it bogs down at the top of second and third girl which loses me alot of speed. Bike carbs will solve that issue.
 
Aye polo engines are torquey though and aren't brilliant for power. (Though a gti is a 1.8 ;))

Standard carb always kept up for me and it was an aggressive setup as @belly93 has now experienced

Bringing it back to the march turbo though.. a 1 litre turbo which can embarrass many things half its age is a very nice weapon to own. Though laws of competition (forced induction = cc x 1.7) means its thrown right into the firing line of ga16 powered cars
