fiat bravo hgt turbo

Hi, I'm in the process of converting my bravo hgt! I've just taking the coupe engine out and now taking the necessary parts off! I've read several threads on what I need! I will be using the coupes hub carriers to use the brembos but do I need the coupes steering rack as well to fit the brembos? Will appreciate some advice 👍

Re: fiat bravo hgt turbo

If you've got the coupe one, you may as well use it if it's in good fettle.
I did a brava so it had a narrow track. The difference in rack length comes from the track rod ends anyway.

Re: fiat bravo hgt turbo

Thank you Steve20vt, think I will use the coupe rack. I'm just getting all the bits I need before the coupe goes scrappy to make room for the bravo.

Re: fiat bravo hgt turbo

Abit of progress with the project however I've came to a stop! I'm installing the coupes gear stick with linkages! And I've noticed it doesn't fit as the bravos heat shield/bracket to hold the gearstick is difference! I take it you'll have to use the coupes heat shield/linkages bracket to fit the linkages and gearstick?

Re: fiat bravo hgt turbo

Why not just use bravo linkages and change whatever is in the gearbox end to the coupe box? It is still a C510 shot version as in bravo.
Only difference is the ratios and the diff.

Or is it a six speed from limited edition?

Re: fiat bravo hgt turbo

the bravo Heat shield is riveted to the tunnel panel where the hand brake and the gearstick are bolted to ....it needs to be swaped with the coupe part unless the coupe has an old style gearbox with rods ....the same as the bravo

Re: fiat bravo hgt turbo

Thanks neverth and cfreitas for your comments, in the end I bought a coupes tunnel and linkages from a broker. Been a little bit of progress meanwhile. Coupes linkages fitted, new wishbones with anti roll bar link bushes, coupes steering rack fitted with new inner tie rods, tie rod ends and gaiters and the horrid sunroof leak sealed and fixed. Coupes hub carriers shot blasted and painted, cambelt kit fitted.

Re: fiat bravo hgt turbo

Also a set of alloys, sorry if they offend but I think they suit the car well and also have a staggered fitment.

Re: fiat bravo hgt turbo

Morning all, was going to fit the coupes hub carriers today until I've got a little confused! I need 2 abs sensors for the coupes hubs but which ones do I buy? Bravo abs sensors or coupes?

I think those wheels look perfect. Great choice. Good luck with the conversion

Re: fiat bravo hgt turbo

Just in case it was not intentional. I notice on the picture your anti roll bar drop link washers are fitted upside-down. Probably not overly important but here is the Fiat workshop manual page (claims fitting them upside-down reduces life.);





My powerflex bushes came with flat washers.

not uncommon to have these things drawn / printed wrong..

agreed - wheels look good on it..,

can't help with the ABS rings though..,

Re: fiat bravo hgt turbo

Thank you and glad you like them. Oh I've just checked them and your right there inside down!! I'm reading on a page on fitting brembos and a chap called furyballs says on cutting bravos abs sensor off leaving the connector and wire, then cut coupes connector off then soldering the coupes abs sensor to the bravos connector and wire! Don't like the idea off cutting abs sensors and soldering cause if it goes wrong or doesn't work then it's a expensive part to bit. But if it's the only way then so be it lol. Any ideas?

Re: fiat bravo hgt turbo

Have you compared the connectors on the Bravo and Coupe sensors yet? I am sure that I bought Coupe abs sensors off Alternative Autos and they connected straight on.
