Re: Grande Punto Turbo Gone

Just for info for everyone slating the performance figures - Here's the closest comparison from a manufacturer I can see:

Seat Ibiza Cupra Diesel - 10kg heavier and 157bhp, 240ft-lb torque (manufacturers figures so torque will be flywheel, not wheels). This has 0-60 of 7.4 and 137 top speed (gearing dependant figures of course but seems a close comparison).

http://www.parkers.co.uk/cars/specs/...px?deriv=34080

Their 128bhp "FR" diesel model (which is 55kg heavier than the GPS - that's an 8 stone passenger) posts standard figures very close the the standard GPS so you can see the difference the 30bhp makes.

http://www.parkers.co.uk/cars/specs/...px?deriv=28717


So with that in mind I can't see why an extra 25-30bhp and 40-50ft-lb of torque (flywheel) couldn't result in at least a decent sub 7 second 0-60 for a remapped GPS. Mine doesn't suffer too badly for grip when accelerating hard, probably due to the weight over the front wheels! 25+bhp is definitely noticeable in a 1200kg car, which by modern standards isn't that heavy! (compare it to the 1600kg Alfa Brera!)
