My Stilo Abarth 5 Door

Bought my baby as standard back in February 2008... a 2002 5 door Navy Blue Stilo Abarth with cream leather... yummy!




but since then, it's had a bit of work done

First a wheel refurb...



Followed by another refurb due to the first being cocked up I fitted the Schumi GP Eibachs springs and Bilstein dampers then as well...



Then I had SchooweeNick's old Custom Chrome Racing exhaust fitted, removing the second cat...



He also sorted me out with a few extra bits and bobs later as well...



Namely...

Brembo GranTurismo's



18" OZ SuperTurismo's


Continental ContactSport 2's


Goodridge SS Brake Lines


GSR Induction and a BMC CDA (not shown)


Stebel Nautilus Horn


Al this has left me with this! Plus an obligatory Red-Dot remap as well... obviously

Re: My Stilo Abarth 5 Door

Subtle mods, very nice. Always been a fan of the stilo - what power figures did you get, any more mods planned?

Re: My Stilo Abarth 5 Door

Cheers. Yeah, I'm a big fan of subtle Q-car styling... not really one for big wings and all that

The car is running Selenia 10w60 and is generating 190bhp when it was rolling roaded on a 25 degree day... not sure whether going back to 10w40 would help at all... will definitely help my noisy tappets though

As for future mods, the only thing I really want to do now is fit a front and rear strutbrace but it's a bit of a faff with the Selespeed reservoir being right in the way

Re: My Stilo Abarth 5 Door

Does look really nice and subtle. The Super Ts really set it off as well

Btw, thinking bout getting my own Nautilus, should be fun

Re: My Stilo Abarth 5 Door

Rear strut brace fitted... suprisingly, it's made a huge difference to how it feels! Looking forward to trying to fit the front at some point now

Re: My Stilo Abarth 5 Door

Re: My Stilo Abarth 5 Door

To be honest, I'm more interested in the front strutbrace anyway as it should help with the handling due to the heavy lump up there. Anything that can cure the understeer the 2.4 suffers would be greatfully recieved

Once I've got the front fitted, I'll review it all and more than likely get rid of the rear if it feels at all twitchy...

All pics are on photobucket.

They need rehosting on here, as per the sticky - then I will edit them into the above post.

Until then, closed - PM me once uploaded

That is one very nice car. Out of interest, what difference did the reinforced hoses make to the brakes? Thinking of that one myself...

If you dont mind me asking how much did you pay for the pipe?

Ive got the CDA in mine and am looking to upgrade the pipework and hopefully free up some more horses before I get it remapped.
