    Default XLI finds it hard to go above 150

    Salam brothers.
    I have tried to acheive 180+ on XLI quite a lot of times. but even though i have tried different ways to get the car to touch the 180 mark at least. But i havent been able to do so. it seems to struggle a lot after 150 or 160. i have petrol xli. NO cng kit installed. 195/65 R15. rest all is stock no modifications. on the other hand I owned a jap. 1992 rolla which i ran to the max ( i.e 180 ). can anyone advice me on what the issue might be?

    bro the thing is that aerodynamics or rolla really sucks.its caught in the air-friction.u might note the engine struggling but still the car not going beyond it.the engine has the capacity,but the friction resists it...

    ahmadbila:

    You'll be surprised to know that the Corolla(present shape) has better aerodynamics than the previous Civic, dont know about the new one though.

    '06 Civic Coefficient of drag=0.32
    '06 Corolla Coefficient of drag=0.30

    Thats why I always say that looks can be deceiving there's alot of engineering involved and you cannot judge aerodynamics by just looking at the car.

    at those speeds aerodynamics play a large role, it's possible you rnewer model car isn't as aerodynamic as the old one,.. which would mean it requires more power than it has so it cannot achieve the same speeds as the other one.

    i fyou want ot make it faster, start with having everythign cleaned, replaced & upgraded (like the filters, plugs, fluids etc),.. after that increase the intake manifold pressure (forced induction) etc.
