Re: Tubo

I don't know, the boot (trunk) isn't that small, you could get a couple of big truck turbos in there.

More seriously, given the lack of space in the engine bay and the other work you would have to do, turbocharging a normally aspirated 500 is not really practical.

Re: Tubo

As above, technically yes, but the cost would be prohibitive you'd be better off just buying a Arbarth, or replacing the engine with one from said version, but again the cost and issues make it not worth it.

Yes but it is cheaper easier to install and more reliable if you get the madness max power ECM.
