What model do you have?

Why not come to the rolling road day at Watford on the 3rd of February, where you can have your car on the rollers and get a re-map and induction kit for the car?

If thats the case, then dont forget that increasing the performance of your car will increase your insurance premium, and with a re-map/ induction kit they may even refuse to insure you all together. Check with your insurance company before spending any money on mods.

Or you could go for the better option of a more powerful M-Jet engine.

Re: best way to add performance to my grande punto petrol

Getting back on topic

GSR's website quotes typical improvement of 26 Nm and 18.6BHP if you fit the F36i and have a re-map from them for 359

That's a 29% increase in BHP and a 25% improvement n torque if the numbers are accurate.

Should make quite a difference. I'm considering this but a wee bit worried about what it will do to my engine long term.
