Punto 8v GSR induction kit - straight fit?

Hi.

As the title says.

I have a GSR induction kit laying around from my old Punto, that I thought could be fun to install on some relatives 500.

Will it be possible? Or is the engine compartment too small?

Don't do it, induction kits are rubbish .
Induction kits reduce the value of the car and potentially cause running problems.

Remember that on a car like the 1,2 500 with a butterfly valve & closed loop fuel trimming, changes to the induction will have absolutely no effect on performance unless the throttle is fully open. It may sound faster, however; as it will almost certainly have an effect on the noise .

It might also have an effect on your insurance premium.
