Update

Well havnt been on the Fiat Forum much due to being busy and family issues . Ive decided to get rid of the stupid braided black hose feeding air into my engine to blue Silcon Hoses with stainless steel pipe in the middle. These should be here this week. Audi TT air vents have been installed into the dash. (Bloody nightmare to get hold off) but mannaged to get some down south. Also made some Lego Dustcaps which were pritty kl. Came out of halfords and some girl and little boy were nelt down at the side of my car i was like . When i got closer the woman explained her son was saying "look LEGO!" and it was only till her son took her up to my car she realise what he had seen . Will get some pics up soon.
Oh and new 700watt Alpine amp installed to power my sub with 450watt Vibe powering my vibe speakers.

I would count myself lucky that as a 17/18 year old you have insured a 95 BHP Sporting. I was 25 years old before I had any more than 55 horses to play with.

Re: My First Car named Eleanor

Hi mate,

1.2 16v Sporting is 80Bhp iirc. Which pipercross kit do you have? At most id say a gain of maybe 5bhp.
