Re: Grande Punto Turbo Gone

Kids + c0ck style driving = fecked car... simple.

I really dont get this bullshine TBH. Someone thrapes the living **** out of their car then moans when it breaks... FFS....

Yes I am angry, I dont really know why... nor do I know why anyone
Would Put Capitals At The Start Of Every Word...

To the OP your Bhp output isnt high, nor is your torque, you either got a dodgy turbo from the Iffy batch or you killed it with ignorance / stupidity.

I feel better now... *waits for the multi-CAP flaming....

Right on Ffoxy.....

Like has been said so many times the most hazardous part of a remap to a car's mechanics is the bit that connects the steering wheel to the pedals!

Makes me laugh when certain folk say "I drove it steady"... My arse....

Oh yeah 143 mph steady!!! 0-60 sub 6 second steady....

You reap what you sow....

Loling my ass off. It is true thou.
I cant say im innocent either, ive been thru an engine mount and a clutch, but hey, I know the map aint meant to be there and i could have it removed at anytime. But i like it and im willing to take the risk that it does put more strain on the car (obviously it does). For me, if the car goes wrong and its likely the map was a factor then ive only got myself to blame.

As foxy has proved, you can run a car heavily remapped with no problems if you dont kick its **** in.

At the end of the day it is a Fiat and if you tuned it that much and then treat it like its a stock car, obv its going to break.


If you keep kicking your dog its going to bite you.! Whether its been remapped or not! lol.

3K of damage and not covered!!

I Thought The Air In Take Went Into The Turbo .. And The Manifold Went Into The Turbo .. And The Exhaust Attatched To The Turbo And Then From The Turbo To The Intercooler Which Goes Into The Throttle Body .. Did The Bits Go Through The Intercooler ??

My Car Starts But Makes A Ticking//Rattleing Noise =[[

Right Sorry About The Caps Thing .. Comes Natural To Me As I Use To Do It As A Kid [Age 11] Or Something .. Sooo It Just Happens Now, Just As Easy As Normal Typing [No Effort] And Stop Stressin' About The Way Someone Types, Think You Might Need To Go See A Doctor Or Something About Stress Issues .. And I Rarely Drive The Car Like That, 4 Times To Be Exact I've Had It To Them Speeds, And About 7-8 Races From A Standstill So I Don't Kill It.

P.S .. Chill Out
