Have just bought a proton satria gti which has the 4G93 N/A

not going to be a daily and not too stressed if it blows up so just wondering are the generic trash ebay turbo kits compatible with this engine?

Im sorry if this is a real stupid question i genuinely know nothing

thank you in advance

The Proton Satria GTi is the same engine as the old Mitsubishi Lancer GSR engine of the same era with a few changes. Proton removed the turbo, but that caused a few issues with power loss, so Proton bumped up the compression to compensate. As a result, its more powerful than a normal factory 4G93 SOHC, but less than the turbo.

They can be boosted as the GSR kit's and generic *poo*ty ebay kits are somewhat common, but the engine doesnt like a lot of boost due to the higher static compression (the factory N/A engine is already considered slightly on the higher side of compression for boosting). Issues can be avoided by a decent tune, and speccing the turbo correctly so you dont blow the engine out sideways

I was planning on running very low boost

not really interested in making high power more so interested in the experience of putting a turbo on

any idea of what the cheapest ECU option would be?

Even low boost will need a lot of care - one example is @ABrouwer had a high compression engine that he slapped a turbo on, the car performed better as an N/A.

Given the age of the car and its electronics, you'd probably be best with a full standalone system, probably looking at $1k or so, plus another $1k for a good tune.
