RaceChip Pro2 on A T-jet 120hp

Gentlemen,
Just installed a RaceChip Pro2 on my T-jet 120hp. It hard to say if there is any difference (maybe in torque). Anyone here has the same installed by any chance? if so, which configuration are you using?

Best,
David

Is this tuning box a racechip box?

Re: RaceChip Pro2 on A T-jet 120hp

I have my Novitec Powerjet II tuning box for sale which is for 1.4T-jet turbo (non-multiair) increases the bhp from 150 to 171.

How much you looking for?

Re: RaceChip Pro2 on A T-jet 120hp

I don't know. I don't think there is any difference although I admit its hard to say with a dyno test.
Regarding mpg - I don't have enough mileage to say. I'll update in a week or so.

Re: RaceChip Pro2 on A T-jet 120hp

T-jet 120's are severely weakened by the turbo it uses. A top end remap will only get you 145 if you're lucky, which when you consider that the bravo has between 120 and 128 BHP from factory that's not a major gain. You can do what @RobBravo has/is doing. He's replaced his Turbo with the much better one from the Abarth 500 I believe and will be remapping it soon, he will be able to get high 170BHP Out of it I believe,

Re: RaceChip Pro2 on A T-jet 120hp

Hi there,

Many 120T's have rolling roaded at 130bhp+ and then as Matt said, you can barely get 145 from a remap.

A tuning box/ race chip might get 140... so in theory you might have got as little as 8-10 bhp..

Would you feel that difference? Probably not in everyday driving.

I have fitted the VL38 from an Alfa Mito 155, coupled with a larger cat back exhaust I'm hoping for between 170-180 bhp.

In theory, if the car sits at 130 bhp then a 40-50 bhp increase from a turbo, exhaust and remap is a huge boost in power

Hi Rob, will the Bravo 150hp Sport 's injectors handle the upgraded turbo and fuel requirements??

Im also thinking of hoing RaceChip Pro but not sure how good the pre-set tuning will be compared to mapping software...

VL37 if I'm correct

Bravo 150 uses the VL36 and the Abarth 500 uses the VL38 if I'm correct. They have weird numbering systems
Thanks MONSTAMUNCH thanked for this post

According to this -> http://www.car-specs.za.net/car.aspx....4-2013-1-8166 only 99kw (132bhp). I think that's wrong :/ it surely must be more powerful The Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari has 132kw (177bhp) which sounds a bit more Abarth like.
