Well there is a 2 kinds of satria gti : MMC system and Bosch EMS system . With the MMC system you maybe able to get to 100km/h in 7.8 seconds but for the Bosch EMS nah...... the most you could get is 9seconds . Proton changed the system to earn more cause only they have the parts . Since 2002 all wiras , satrias and gtis has been using Bosch EMS system . I own a satria gti myself and i changed the whole wiring , manifold , computer box , trottlebody etc ++ back to the MMC system . The bosch EMS system with a trottle sencor there sucks . After change back to the MMC system i could go from 0-100km/h in 6.7 seconds
Behind the somewhat "unperforming" Proton lies a pure animal ready to be released in the Proton GTI. All thanks however go to Lotus for their top class engineering and handling. The Proton GTI though similar in shape to its Proton "Satria" cousin has extra parts which make the GTI a mean machine. 16inch alloy wheels, 1.8litre DOHC engine, rear spoiler, recaro racing seats with front, side and back skirtings beef up the plain looking Satria. Fuel consumption is excellent! And the metallic gear stick is slick (be thankful that this is not a tropical country because the gear stick can get pretty hot when left out in the sun!). Pedals are metallic with "GTI" inscribed on them. The dashboard and speedometer though more jazzed up then the Wira is still quite cheap and tacky however. Safety features are quite poor with only one air bag for the driver. However this is quite easily made up for by the quality of the ride! Impressive and shocking for a car from Proton! Not to mention a 0 - 60 of about 7.8 seconds. At a price of 13000 pounds (reduced from 15000) the Proton GTI is definitely worth considering if you are thinking of getting a GTI.
