Re: Fiat Bravo 20v turbo

The Diff is now fitted in the gearbox. I have machined the inner driveshaft to seal nicely with the GTA gearbox cover plate and custom seal. I have also purchased an uprated vibratechnics gearbox mount (the other 2 engine mounts were uprated to vibratechnics previously)

Re: Fiat Bravo 20v turbo

The engine bay was prepared, ready for the engine installation.

Subframe was seam welded, had a metallisation coating and then powder coated.

Black powerflex bushes are fitted to the new anti roll bar, drop links and suspension arms.

The steering rack needed new gators, so we fitted new track rods and ends.

Re: Fiat Bravo 20v turbo

So the Turbo arrived this morning...

It is an FC Performance stage 4 hybrid.

The exhaust housing is one I sent, which I ported to match the manifold.

Re: Fiat Bravo 20v turbo

We now have her up and running. Just a few parts to put back on before being ready for test drive...

Re: Fiat Bravo 20v turbo

Sounds great on idle, cant wait for updates Justin


Are there any parts you are struggling for? I have lots of odd new original parts for the Mk1.

The video doesn't do it justice, it really does sound nice. I have just ordered a new expansion tank as the original was a bit dirty, so this will be fitted after the engine is run in. I can't think of any other bits we need. If you can think of any bits you have that may help then feel free to suggest.

Re: Fiat Bravo 20v turbo

Nice paint! What are the wipers taken from? I really like them. You know that the new fiat bravo washer jets fit our Bravo's

Side by side comparison.

Re: Fiat Bravo 20v turbo

The wipers are just Bosch ones with the spoilers on them. I didn't know that about the washer jets so thanks, will certainly do the conversion as the originals are rubbish as you know...
