Bravo T-jet

Not really a project, more of a "If I'm dicking about with it, here's where I'm telling everyone :P "

Had the Bravo since March 15 and while I said it would stay standard I quicky started "dicking about" with it

Mods so far: Hawk HID kit
K&N Filter element
Red Foglight switched to clear
Wind Deflectors front/rear

Planned Mods: Cat-back exhaust from Longlife (booked in end of this week)
Wheels Refurbed in anthracite/gunmetal (a ways off yet but one day)

May get it remapped as well though I'm chuffed with the performance as it is at the moment







And one day get her like this

The Bravos are such a rare breed nowadays both old and new that it's a real welcome to see one in the project threads. I'm familiar with the mjet sport as there's one in the family but not the tjets. What's the spec?

Thanks, there really isn't that many of them keeps them nice and exclusive I suppose

It's a 1.4 turbo with either 120bhp or 150bhp, same engine as the GP abarth so has potential

It's nippy enough to put a smile on your face and will keep up with most bigger things but still not as quick as serious hot hatches

Picked her up this afternoon after getting the exhaust sorted.

Now has a nice subtle purr from the slightly larger tail pipes and no knocking from the old rusted sagging number that was on before

Before


After

Think spraying the top grill black would set off the front end

Re: Bravo T-jet

Some small updates from the past few months

Remapped by Angel tuning Scotland, aimed for 180bhp however while I felt it quicker, Paul from ATS thinks it isn't quite there, haven't had a chance to do a dyno run yet

Wheels were refurbed in gunmetal grey by the wheel specialist Edinburgh

New black headlights, bought after being told by the seller they were for UK/RHD cars, turned out they weren't, at least until I swapped the projector lenses from UK lights

Black repeaters

Plastidipped the front grille black but it lasted about a week before peeling, going to use black paint next time

Not much else planned other than driving and enjoying, however I quite fancy getting middle silencer removed from exhaust, an uprated intercooler (alternatives to forge?) and a bigger turbo obviously haha (although the work and £££ are an issue)
