Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

Brakes would definately need to be upgraded. You cant have a relatively large power increase and leave the standard brakes on. There is a couple of grand there in parts alone. A full supersprint exhaust system with manifold is going to be about 1000+

Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

would 20bhp really stress them over their capabilities? they seem to stop in record time! what kinda level are we talking just ventilated groove discs? or new calipers and that..?

punto matt would you do this turbo upgrade if your already hitting 152bhp?

Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

With all the stuff you listed and a remap you will be hitting more than 160bhp and you will have a shed load more torque aswell which is important dont forget

You could start with an uprated disc and pad combo then see how that goes. I can easily get quite a bit of brake fade on my standard set.

I plan on taking my tuning further when insurance allows yes 152bhp is quick but i want it quicker

Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

i was looking into some red brake calipers and got chatting to the guy about engine work especially intercoolers as i heard on a turbo car it really increases torque

he said you dont even notice torque when driving i thought it sounded abit weird!

yeah insurance is a pain in the future its going to be so bad you wont drive unless your rich until your 35

what do you think 170bhp and 210lbs? possible without wrecking things?

Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

lol of course you notice torque. If you didnt notice it then why would it be so important? I couldnt tell you what you could run without wrecking stuff its completely hit and miss when it comes to tuning and you find out what stuff can take as it breaks

Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

It would be nice to know how much torque the gearbox can handle. Obviously we'll find that out "the hard way"

Re: Abarth Turbo on T-jet 120hp

how much do these things cost with fitting etc.

after seeing someone on here with a lester bodykit im thinking bodykit too eventually its a beautiful car but just something to add something!
Please dont get the Lester Kit, they shouldn't be allowed to put their crap on a GP!!!
