Intercooler yes, turbo I tried but I almost took it apart instead of off so I gave up, not wanting to break anything and took it to a garage.

It runs brilliantly now, don't think I could go back to driving it standard Haven't checked the MPG really but I will do next time

Bump up the premium much? Very tempted to do this as well.

It was a little bit of a bump yes Still cheaper than insuring an abarth though, and every bit worth it in my opinion too!

Re: DlightSwitch's Blue T-Jet

I had one and sold it haha

I didn't think I would need more power, but I want more now.

Does it feel alot better now? hold boost for longer? or is there slightly more lag?

I'm hoping I won't feel that I need more power until I can get insured on something else! Otherwise I have much more work ahead of me :P

It feels so much better, it has definitely surprised me. I'm still meaning to install a boost gauge, but from what I can feel I'm pretty sure it holds the boost much longer, especially by the look of the graph as well. This is the first turbo car I've owned so I'm not too sure what the lag is like on others, but it's basically non existant, the 'kick' is delivered as soon as my foot requests it

Re: DlightSwitch's Blue T-Jet

Got a video of my exhaust sound today


Doesn't actually sound quite as loud as it is. I didn't take it over 5k RPM in the video out of respect for my neighbours.

Also quite pleased that I've been averaging over 35Mpg since the remap

No I've been a bit lazy with those, hopefully soon I'll sort out which jubilee clips I need and get them bought, and then fit all the hoses and make my engine bay look awesome

You sold your T-Jet yet? Onto something new?

I know there are some places that sell them, but you'd have more luck asking in the main Grande Punto forum as I can't remember their names.
