Talking about campro CPS v campro turbo, which one is better for you? Anyway, both have pros and cons. The CPS may be fuel efficient and the campro turbo surely got better power and pickup but the consumption must also be high. So if you need to add a little more power to your campro, a CPS engine conversion can be done which costs around RM3000 with new better than vtec alike system that will gives you better performance at the same time better fuel consumption.
