Proton Waja 1.8 Engine

Since Proton end their relation with Mitsubishi, they had been trying to use other type of engine for their so call "Notional car".

Start from Proton Tiara, which at that time Mitsubishi still one of the shareholder of Proton, they had put in Peugeot TU1 engine on this model, but Proton Tiara seem is one of the failure vehicle in Proton.

Than they come with a replacement for Proton Tiara which they name it as Proton Savvy, this time they use the Renault D4F engine.

And some may notice that there are one series of Proton Waja 1.8 which also using Renault engine, with this kind of continental type of engine, their parts had become not cheap when compare to the Japan type of engine, for example, the overhaul set gasket for Waja 1.8 may cost near to RM600 when you buy it from Proton parts centre.
