Re: 1.9 M Jet to tune on not to tune

Personally I'd settle for a remap...180-190 bhp is plenty of power for this car....

The car can barely cope physically with this much power, besides in a straight line in a high gear, so I can't see the point in being greedy and adding even more...imo of course...

If I want anything faster I'll change the car not add more mods...

I agree with that, the FMIC isn't going to add loads of extra power just keep the running temperature down and have a little more grace on the turbo from heat soak long term.. but all that depends if you plan on keep the car for a year, a few years down the line as to if any side affects are going to affect you as the owner... though with the intercooler its blatently obvious to fiat you've been messing around with maps, etc if its goes in with a FMIC

well my bro fiat 20v turbo pushing 275bhp is very fun and my mates 1.6 del sol Vtec turbo pushing way over 300bhp is even better kills a 650bhp skyline that the mechanics owns that put the ball bearing turbo on his car.

What point are you making?

I have owned several hot hatches and most had less power than my remapped GPS, but believe me they would blow it away on a track or in the real world for that matter... The GPS is not a Hot hatch even when tuned up to the maximum!

You might have 200bhp+ out of a GPS but for overall performance it will get laughed at by much less powerful cars....

Puntokris had god knows how much power and he was chuffed keeping up with a Fiesta Zetec S...lol....

If you enjoy driving really fast in straight lines...carry on

Fiat 20VT is designed to put down 220bhp and has a LSD to help with a 50 bhp increase.. Not a good choice for a comparison with a diesel hatchback with no LSD taking a 70 BHP increase.

As for the Del Sol whats the point in 300BHP? You would be going to fast for anyone to see the highlights in your hair.
