Fiat Bravo T-Jet 200 BHP Tuning Journey

Ok so..... I'm new here so hello I got my first Fiat Bravo T-Jet 150 2007 Model and let me tell you, since I got the car I LOVED IT! But as anyone does I started to want to tinker with it and I'm starting this thread as people might have questions about what I done and also how I did it ect, anyways my Journey started with the dream of my Bravo getting to 200 BHP Witch will reality soon and not so much a dream as I have most things in place. Just waiting for my De-Cat downpipe then I can get it remapped to 200BHP, for anyone interested this is my list of mods
*Induction kit
*Dual Friction Performance Clutch
*Butterfly Valve Exhaust (bypasses middle resonatior and back box) Controlled by a remote (Open/Closed)
*Xeon Headlights 8000K
*Tinted windows And Lights
*Lowered 30mm On front and 40mm on back
*Rear window wiper delete
*Debadged
*Ragazzon Stainless Steel Catalyst Replacement Down Pipe (Waiting on Delivery)
*LED Interior lights
*LED Fog lights and Number plate lights
Ok I think I covered everything, I've learned a lot since starting and will more than likely learn more as I carry on my journey, the car will be getting remapped once my De-Cat downpipe arrives and they are confident I can get to 200BHP With a stage 2 Remap so that'll be fun haha, Any questions don't hesitate to ask me look forward to meeting others with the same cars

Re: Fiat Bravo T-Jet 200 BHP Tuning Journey

Your saying stage 2... but your at stage 1 in terms of mods.

For stage 2 you would need. Bigger intercooler, injectors, 80mm maf, possibly uprated fuel pump and uplifted cams.

Right now... with down pip, ss system, sports cat, induction. Would see you at around 180 - 190 that is useable without fading power at high rpm and massive lag at low rpm.

Please do let us know how you get on, remember to post figures and graphs

Yeah I will be sure to post graphs, the guy I'm getting it done with has done these remaps before with the same cars with the same mods as mine and he says he can get them up to 198 only thing that restricts them is the clutch when they are tuned this high, I'm pretty sure there is no need to uprate anything like injectors, fuel pump or anything like that,maybe intercooler yeah, I've done abit of research and I've seen a lot of people getting these results with mods the same as mine. Unless you have done it to your own car maybe I'm mistaken

Re: Fiat Bravo T-Jet 200 BHP Tuning Journey

In opinion, i have a 150hp 1.9 diesel, producing 330-340nm torque stock, its has a k&n panel filter and has been extensivley remapped, power is unknown right now as i did not remap the car in my ownership... but... its just useable down low and at out of puff at about 4900k it is a diesel btw and soft limited to 5k. If i achieve full boost in 3rd or 4rth at low rpm... it get drivetrain rumble... my clutch and dmf are both less than 6 months old and are stock replacements... they should hold around 360 to 400nm torque, i think im hitting them barriers with rumble in higher gears, lower rpm and full boost...

All will be known when i have my power runs and retune done at rs tuning in leeds, i will also be adding a hard cut rev limiter, all once i have relocated and uprated intercooler and added proper induction rather than a box....

Yeah, I installed a panel filter (more of a cone in my model) and it literally made 0 difference, once I got the induction kit done (cone) then the sound was amazing, blow off sounds and also the noise of the turbo spooling up, really nice.

Re: Fiat Bravo T-Jet 200 BHP Tuning Journey

The noise is noticable with my panel and really growly, running high boost though so that probably explains it... the one thing i will gain with my planned mods is more smooth power band and heftier dumps hopefully it will breath better low down and be more controllable still need the q2 diff or ill end up in a kirb soon, torque steer is a dog in the arse!

Also, the remap I'm getting is called a stage two remap, as the stage one only takes it up to 175-185 and stage two goes to 198 and theoretically you only need a de-cat for that
