Proton Campro 1.6 CFE

Proton Campro 1.6 CFE – The Development Programme.

The engineering team comprising Proton and Lotus engineers started the design work at Lotus’ UK Technical Centre outside Norwich, before migration of the project to the Proton technical center in Shah Alam, Malaysia.

This allowed for good continuity within the engineering team, as well as building strong interpersonal links. This method also allowed inexperienced engineers an unparalleled opportunity to be introduced onto a live project, being mentored by Lotus and Proton senior engineers. In total, around 30 Proton engineers spent time at the engineering centre at Lotus.

Web conferencing packages were used extensively to efficiently communicate between Lotus and Proton, as well as with vendor engineering teams in Asia and Europe. As well as utilizing Proton’s existing supply base, many new technology suppliers were used for the CFE engine. Lotus Engineering Malaysia worked closely with the Proton supplier quality assurance (SQA) team through the advanced product quality planning (APQP) process.

Lotus manufacturing engineers worked with Proton manufacturing engineers to define and plan out the changes needed to the existing manufacturing facility in terms of equipment and processes to accommodate the changes of the Campro CFE engine.

Engine dynamometer testing was carried out at both the Lotus UK and Proton Malaysian test facilities. Additionally engines and electrically driven rigs were run at vendor sites to validate key components.

The first prototype engines were available for test 7 months after kickoff, with the initial design verification (DV) phase engines built at Lotus using prototype suppliers. Later DV phase engines would be built offline at Proton using soft tooled parts from production suppliers, before final process validation engine built on a new final assembly line in the Shah Alam facility.

The engineering programme included application of a new torque based engine management system (EMS) as well as the base engine changes required for the higher performance of the force induction system’s application. The new system would allow for seamless integration with a new continuously variable transmission, as well as permitting the vehicle to be upgraded to the latest levels of electronic stability program (ESP).

Calibration of the EMS was carried out by Lotus and Proton engineers, working closely with the transmission supplier (Punch Powertrain) and also the EMS software and hardware supplier
(Continental SA).

In line with the product plan, the engine management calibration was proven at low temperature in Sweden, as well as high temperature/high altitude in Spain and Malaysia.

Proton Campro 1.6 CFE – Technical.

Although based on the existing engine family, retaining many of the key features like bore size, block height, cam positions etc, the vast majority of the components were replaced or modified in some way.

One fundamental change was a reduction in stroke from 88 mm to 86 mm. With the retained 76 mm bore, the swept volume reduced from 1,597 cc to 1,561 cc. This was brought about by the very compact height of the existing iron cylinder block which did not provide enough space to increase the required piston strength or lower the piston crown to achieve the desired compression ratio.

The compression ratio was set at 8.9:1, which although relatively low for a modern downsized engine, allows the same hardware to be used for all the target markets including those with 88 RON fuel and very hot climates without excessive retardation.

The cylinder block was based on the original Campro cast iron block. Extensive finite element analysis (FEA) showed no requirement to strengthen the casting to withstand the increased cylinder pressures. Small changes to the block were made to incorporate piston cooling jets into the oil gallery, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) driven flow improvements into the water jacket to improve the engine cooling required for the performance increase.

A forged steel crankshaft replaced the original cast iron unit in the engine. FEA indicated that it would be possible to maintain the existing main bearing and rod bearing dimensions; however it was necessary to improve the bearing material to withstand the projected loadings.

A new piston design with a 19 mm floating piston pin to withstand the higher cylinder pressures was implemented. The cast piston incorporated an anodised top ring groove to prevent micro-welding damage with the expected high temperatures, and a scuff resistant coating applied to the piston skirts.

The changes to the piston and the increased gas pressure loading necessitated a change in connecting rod and connecting rod length. A new forged steel fracture cap design replaced the original powder metal design.

The aluminium 4 valve per cylinder DOHC Campro cylinder head was re-engineered to accept an intake cam phaser for the CFE application. This was achieved maintaining the existing cambelt location and now permits 40 crank degrees of intake cam phasing for improved performance, fuel economy and emissions. An improved cambelt material was implemented along with an auto-tensioner for improved serviceability.

During the cylinder head redesign, the spark plug was changed to a narrow thread, long reach design so that the spark plug boss would allow better cooling as well as a lower coolant back pressure in the cylinder head water jacket. In thesame way as the cylinder block, the water jacket design actions were led by extensive up-front CFD analysis.Through the reductions in coolant restriction developed through CFD, only a modest increase in water pump flow rate was required.

A new multiple layers steel (MLS) cylinder head gasket was developed to withstand the higher cylinder pressures.

To withstand the expected higher exhaust gas temperatures, sodium filled exhaust valves maintaining the original 5 mm stem diameter were selected.

An upgraded oil pump was also implemented to compensate for the higher demand of piston cooling jets, turbocharger bearing oil supply, and to maintain good oil pressure at low engine speed so that the intake variable valve timing (VVT) system could be operated. A water-cooled oil cooler is fitted as standard.

A Borg Warner turbocharger’s compressor and turbine were selected for maximum low speed performance. It uses a pressure regulated wastegate to control plenum pressure, and incorporated an electric integrated compressor bypass. Air from the compressor is ducted to an air to air chargecooler mounted in the front left hand side bumper aperture. An electrical pump which is actuated on key-off to provide coolant to the turbocharger bearing housing after engine shutdown. This pump also circulates coolant around the rest of the coolant circuit to prevent boiling, an important feature in the high ambient temperature of Malaysia and Proton’s export markets.

In line with the original Campro philosophy, the CFE engine uses a single close-coupled catalyst as sole exhaust gas after-treatment as a cost effective fast light off package. Variations in platinum group metals (PGM) loading and substrate density will cover Euro III to Euro V emissions markets.

The existing two-mode variable length plastic manifold was replaced with a compact fixed length plastic manifold for the CFE. The fuel rail was re-engineered to a return-less design to reduce fuel heating effects, and higher flow fuel injectors fitted to satisfy the increased performance level.

As well as improvements to produce and withstand the increased performance, several other changes were made to reduce the friction of the base engine. These changes included replacing the original engine’s direct acting hydraulic tappets with lower friction mechanical graded tappets that are machine selected on the engine assembly line.

Piston ring heights were reduced allowing lower tangential loads and the piston skirts now include a low friction coating.

A windage tray was also added to the oil pan that has been shown to reduce parasitic losses by up to 1.5 kW. A higher specification lower viscosity mineral oil was specified to allow extended service intervals along with reduced friction.

Proton Preve Review

Proton Preve review

Enjin : Campro CFE Turbo(soft)
CC : 1.6
Torque & BHP : 138bhp & 205NM (2000 hingga 4000 rpm)


Enjin Campro 1.6 digunakan dengan sedikit modifikasi untuk kesesuian turbo ini.
Turbo Sistem menggunakan soft turbo dengan boost sehingga 10.9 psi.
Jika di bandingkan dengan twin turbo lain seperti Volkswagen Jetta boleh menghasilkan sehingga 36.3 PSI untuk kombinasi turbocharger dan supercharger pada RPM yang agak awal 1500 RPM. tetapi kos untuk menghasilkan twin charger lebih tinggi daripada single turbo.
Untuk turbo sistem turbin yang di gunakan adalah dari Borg Warner.
VVT teknologi di gunakan untuk mengawal air intake, sekiranya dalam keadaan perlahan air intake valve akan di bukak agak lama untuk membenarkan lebih udata masuk di ruang pebakaran.
Sekiranya dalam keadaan laju injap akan di bukak agak singkat.
Untuk injap keluar(excaust) saya kurang pasti adakah menggunakan system VVT ini


Menggunakan CVT(Continuously variable transmission) dari Punch syarikat yang berpengkalan dari Belgium.
Model yang di gunakan adalah VT3 berkeupayaan hinga 220NM troque. VT3 tidak menggunakan torque converter, sebaliknya menggunkan wet clucth.
Gear box ini jugak mempunya sistem penyejukkan utk mengelakkan dari overheat.
Penggunaan CVT dapat menghindari shift lock, ini dapat menambahkan penjimatan minyak dan  keselesaan.
Jaminan 5 Tahun di berikan untuk system tansmissi juga.
Kenderaan lain yang menggunakan sistem tranmissi CVT adalah seperti Nissan Sylphy dan Toyota Wish 2009.
Anda boleh menggunakan "S" mode selain "D" mode utk mengawal gear shift, ini membenarkan RPM naik ke tahap 5000 RPM, secara tak langsung anda akan berada lebih lama pada tahap kemuncak torque Preve ini iaitu pada 205NM.

Semasa pandu uji saya mendapati Preve agak kurang pickup sekiranya dari pegun, ini adalah kerana pedal minyak Preve di kalibrasi utk kelajuan di tambah secara beransur2 dan tidak secara mengejut seperti Exora. Terdapat rumors mengatakan yang ECU akan di kalibrasi semula untuk meningkatkan respons Preve dari kedaan pegun.

Ciri-Ciri keselamatan:

4 Airbag:
  • 2 depan dan 2 di tepi.
  • Sekiranya di bandingkan dengan kerata di dalam segment yang sama:
    • Forte 1.6 - 2 Airbag
    • Forte 2.0 - 6 Airbag
    • Civic 1.8 - 2 Airbag
