I wasn't really after the abarth looks cos altho i think it looks stunning i wouldn't want to make my car portray something its not...I was just wondering about the performance side! I'm just abit gutted we can't remap the 1.4 16v GPS yet that's all

Yeah I guess there is...i'm not very imaginative though...I like mods that I can do myself and remove if I have to...or that can't be seen...I'm into my stealth you see

Any ideas then please feel free to let me know!

Re: Abarth Essense' on a 1.4 16v/T-Jet Sporting

It would be far easier to fit it all to a T-jet as it'll already have the forged crank/pistons, lowered compression, turbo manifold/oil feeds/drains/cooling system, etc. Still not cheap though.

Converting a standard 1.4 16v will be much more expensive.

And it won't be covered under the standard warranty as you're modding a vehicle that the kit wasn't specifically designed for.

gotta admit though, it'd be pretty cool!
