    of course bhai how can they learn the modern tricks and technics when fine professionals like you shifted to Houston and open racing systems there, off course they are well away from being even trained but what are the choices ?

    I really appreciate your concern about PK lagging back or may be you are already doing some thing for it, but a large number of Pakistani are not, they just left it after using it as a foot step.

    Even after I completed my engineering, 90% of my classmates are now 'Not in Pakistan' and don't work for Pakistan. Tu bhai phir isitran chalna hai ...

    dont mind my intention is not to target you brother just shared my point of view.

    You have the d'rect fan crowd which if done to EFI cars becomes problematic becuase the ECU cannot go into closed loop mode if it has an electric operated O/D or lockup or full electric shift trans it wont shift into high gear due to cold engine temperature. This is the lack of knowledge that is being discussed. Repairing cars is not a learn by copy art - its an educated ladder.

    The reason you see so many Prius is that they provide cheap economy to run - wait a few years and you will see them parked at ustaad getting engine transplants because repairing the original system would be murder to their bank accounts if someone actually could understand them, if not then it would still be murder as the car would be a permanent visitor of such mechanic.

    You can neatly place this along home and commercial A/C mechanics in Pakistan - they still use lye to wash the condenser fins - its corrosive to them, they dont even vacuum the lineset, they dont even have strobe lights to set fan blade pitch - and yet A/Cs have been in Pakistan for more than 30 years now.

    You are wrong brother,
    As axio fielder and all other 1.5 litres toyota hav different engine than prius. They have 1NZ-FE engines, which produces 107 hp, while prius has 1NZ-FXE engine which only produces 76 hp. And thats, my brother, is hell of a difference, it uses atkinson cycle simulation and compression ratio is also different.

    Actually people who are favoring hybrids are those people who are importing them for business, they want this car to be proved as intelligent choice, and make more and more people to buy this car. Actually buying this car as used is a foolish-man's job.

    2) arsh247 has explained pretty well....it charge by stopping or slowing down
    3) no u shudnt sell ur altis until indus motor or any other workshop comes up with prius maintenance workshop....the electrical n battery parts is hard to understand by our local mechanic so u need to wait for the proper maintenance workshop with trained mechanic

    ofcourse its different from internally but wat i meant its uses the same oil filter, air filter n other parts r same as axio/premio 1500cc engine....i know the compression of 1nz-fxe is 13.0 non vvti while 1nzfe is vvti with 10.5 compression...bore n stroke r same
    My lugnuts require more torque than your Vtec can put out...
