Yes definitely more power but in terms of reliability? Cps version is a quite straight fwd unit..cps na, 4 speed at etc etc where else the cfe much more complicated.. Read in other forums that owners send cfe in for ecu update bla bla bla

the software update is not a probelm.
just like updating your antivirus software.

there are some cfe engine with turbocharger problen.after investigating proton found that its not due to manufacturing defect but due to oil additive which not suitable.

of course cfe is more powerful but reliability is kinda questionable unlike the proven cps engine,
my advise is get the cfe version, u need the extra oomph.trust me.
dont think it will have problem in the near future.

Bought a CPS initially and drove it for about 2 yrs and now for the past 2 yrs driving the CFE.
A lot of difference in the performance as you could really feel the big difference in it when the turbo kicks in.
As the turbo kicks In only at 2k rpm, you can drive it as a CPS also if you want....
The Sound proofing has much improved in the CFE models compared to CPS.
The drive in SAT is very nice as it gives a simulated feeling of Gear shifts.....
And of-course the other add ons depends on what model (Standard, prime etc..)
Other than this no much difference between the CPS and CFE....

There are few issues which you could hear now also for CFE... but very rare as fixes are already out.
I had the Jerking issue which was rectified by SC via update as well as via replacement of valve during the 1st service.
Petrol Smell issue which was rectified by SC using sealant.

I also heard some complains about Driver Seat rattling sound as well as Steering bit out of alignment issues for few.

For me, as the other 2 issues were been rectified by the SC, I'm completely satisfied and enjoying the CFE and also could see that 99% Owners are satisfied.
(ofcourse due to some SC ignorance or lack of professionalism you could hear few complaints which all the Brands have....)

Also feeling proud smile.gif that I changed to CFE due to the performance so far....
I had 2 trips to Genting and Cameroon using my CPS but could see that the vehicle was struggling.... but with CFE it was a great and enjoyable ride smile.gif

True maintenance wise, CFE will be costlier as the Parts are costly (e.g. you can see the Spark plug itself... or the Oil to be used etc..)
So it purely depends on the individual whether you are looking for Power or you are happy with the normal.....
The rest of the Extra fittings (most of them...) you can find the After market ones....

6 years onwards, I am still driving and having fun with my Exora! Offroad pun pernah

Found a nice engine oil + atf combo that works (PLLG + Hardex SPIII atf), the car can sometimes get wheelspin at traffic light.

Mileage is kind of low at 145,000km+ Still yet to service the aircond (asking for trouble only)

Bau dalam kereta...walau weh, tak payah cerita lah with my soon practically peed on 5 of the seats already and milo/susu tumpah. Need to get this thing squeaky clean for the coming raya.
