Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the DNWA engine assembly is 160 kg. The DNWA engine number is located at the joint of the block and the oil pan. The main problem with these units is the owners' unrestrained desire for tuning. However, when operated in stock condition, this turbocharged engine has few issues. And the aluminum block with plasma spraying does not cause any trouble instead of sleeves. On forums, only a few complaints about cracks in the vacuum tubes were found. Also, when driving aggressively, it is better to use AI-100 gasoline due to the high risk of detonation.
