Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

as you've moved your battery i think you might be able to squeeze a 20v N/A in there! i dont think there will be room for the turbo without relocating the rad.

you would also need custom driveshafts else your wheels will be 6 feet out the arches lol

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

The plan at the mo is to just get a custom manifold made and fit a turbo. The B does have room in the bumper for an intercooler infront of the rad.

What turbo do you think would work well with the 1.8 VVT lump thats in the B? Stock is 130 ish BHP and I would like to hit the 200 BHP max if poss. I would like a turbo that will work well from say 150BHP - 200bhp as I progress the engine mods.

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

try on the mazda forums for a BBR conversion they are good for 300bhp with uprated internals but run about 200bhp on the 1.8's as a bolt on kit

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

My brother's got a BBR on a 1.6 MX5. I'm happy to pass on questions or put you in touch if you think it might help.

Matt.

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

Well as far as I can see I need to make a choice on what turbo I need first as that will determined the manifold design.

Something like this (click me)

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

what are your power goals? and what kind of spool up are you looking for?

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

your best bet is somthing like a t25 or T25/28 as they spool up pretty good but still well capable of 200bhp, the best would be a T2 but i dont think it would produce 200bhp

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

i'm thinking more along the lines of a T3/T4 hybrid, 46 trim, 360 thrust impeller. ball bareing. they spool pretty quickly and can make upto 350 BHP. plenty of room for expansion. but then i think of the wastegate. if space is tight that would just get in the way, so need to go external wastegate with a relocation pipe. some kind of BOV, prefrably recirlative. but 200BHP on an NA engine, thats Forgies teritory, or a decomp plate, but thats just getting sloppy. i could ramble away all night at this.

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

it would be cheaper to have a new manifold made up to suit the trubo housing instead of using one off the 16v i think anyway lol.

when i was going to have a manifold made up for the hgt i was quoted £1200 from simpson lol so i thought id leave that till the last min lol

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

it might not be cheaper, but it would be smarter, since its not built for turbo use, and them adaptor flanges just restrict the F#kc out of the exaust. id go custom on the manifold, you want as best a flow as you can get, poor flow= slow spool.

Thought we had around three Greeks on the barchetta forum, now it seems we have four

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

All great info

A T3/T4 hybrid, 46 trim, 360 thrust impeller sounds like it will do the job. I cant ever see me wanting more then 200BHP in a Barchetta as I dont think the rest of the car could take it.

Sounds like a custom manifold is going to cost me a bit

I'm quite mechanical but had to read that a couple of times.
