    Nice find, BJ.

    I always search for Mirage videos, but I guess I missed this one because he called it "Mirageturbo".

    Hopefully the mystery will be solved!

    I posted a comment/question from MirageForum on the video. Never know.. maybe we'll hear something back.

    i wonder what these small size ice do in the long run

    i have spoking to a mecanic and he tells me that there are a lot of ford ecoboost cars with trouble
    a 1 liter ice in a 1200kg+ needs to work hard
    ofcource the mirage is low in wieght so not that problem

    I have said earlier that it's bull**** to let a donkey pulls a tank. It may suffice for awhile but it will overwork the engine and resulted in a shorter lifespan of an engine. It's also the main reason 8 cylinder engines lasts longer because it has an easy life.

    I'd have to disagree. Diesels have a horrible life being high compression and turbocharged. Yet, they last very long. Why? Because they are designed for it. There is no reason why a small engine can't be designed with a turbo and last just as long as a larger engine.

    I have 3 spare TD03 turbos sitting at home doing nothing. They come off a 2.5L twin turbo V6.
    Suffice to say it's very close on cylinder capacity for turbo (1.25l 3cyl per turbo on the Legnum)
    Been trying to find a place to do a manifold for me hehe
