Proton Waja CPS

Besides the Integrated Air Fuel Module (IAFM), which was fitted on the 2008 Proton Saga to improve torque power of the Campro engine, Proton has 2 more great technologies, Cam Profile Switching (CPS) and Variable Intake Manifold (VIM) to increase the power of the Campro engine. These 2 technologies have been fitted to the newly launched Proton Waja CPS Premium. The Campro CPS engine can produce 125hp compared to the 110hp in the original Campro engine. Yes, 125hp on 1.6L engine. This is a huge improvement. Not many 1.6L engines can produce 125 hp.

The Campro CPS will improve the driving experience of the Proton Waja because it can give better performance at lower rpm ranges. One of the big hindrance of the original Campro engine is the lacking of power at the lower range rpm. In Malaysia, the Campro CPS engine is only available in the Waja Premium. I hope Proton will install the Campro CPS engine in all other models soon. The Campro CPS engine already available in the facelifted Proton Gen 2, which was launched in Bangkok At the Thailand International Motor Expo 2007.

Below are the Torque and Power curves gathered from Proton website.
