Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

also there different fitments arn't they? im sure iv read that in which case you'd have to re-do all the plumbing for the new turbo.

only way i can see you getting 160 bhp straight away by changing the turbo is by putting in the ss turbo, that ups the turbo from 1.3 to 1.5 bar (is it bar - cant remember) however im guessing u will be getting the standard abarth turbo from an old standard abarth thats had the SS kit fitted?

the other more cheaper way for you mate it to remap the thing.... punto matt has figures like abarth so its easier to do it like that.
First of all none of the T-Jets is 120bhp. All the ones we measured as well as our competitors were around the 140bhp - give or take a few bhp.

The Turbo we fitted to the T-Jet to get in excess of 160bhp is the one on the Brovao 150 T-Jet. The car was mapped at the same time and induction fitted.

The 150 turbo can be baought for about 400 pounds plus VAT from Fiat as a re-con, which is a new unit.

Although it can be fitted to the T-Jet engine without mapping it is advisable to re-map.

The fitting is straight forward as it is identical from the outside. It is just a bigger venturi and impeller in the otherwise same housing.

In the Bravo 150 power can be increased by induction and mapping to nearly 190bhp.
Thanks James1989, creep thanked for this post

Are you now able to do a complete remap? I've read you had some problems with the ECU.

Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

If you can get nearly 190 bhp out of the bravo 150 is it possible to get that out of the T-jet 12o if its fitted with the turbo off the bravo 150?

Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

Theoretically yes. Depends if the mapping issue gets sorted.

Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

assuming the re-map works out fine with the bravo/abarth turbo then i guess a new clutch is also a must have? what other parts would you need to change for 160bhp?

Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

I would think clutch would be ok dependant on how you drove it but there is only one way to find out if its gonna go or not Everything else internal wise should be fine but then everything can always be improved so depends how much money you are willing to spend

Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

what kind of things and cost we talking?

clutch what 300squids?
manifold
intercooler
sport cat exhaust
re-profile cams?

how much do these things cost with fitting etc.

brakes seem more than capable

after seeing someone on here with a lester bodykit im thinking bodykit too eventually its a beautiful car but just something to add something!
