Re: My Fiat 500 Abarth

Looks lovely, really like the abarth 500's, I know the engine bays are extremely cramped but is there no other way for the induction?

also I think a Remap would be better than the tuning boxes

Re: My Fiat 500 Abarth

Thank you
I can't see any other way of routing the induction kit to be honest its a right pain.
They both seem to bring similar outputs power wise, suppose the remap would be more custom to my car tho

remap would be better for the car, as for the induction, looking on other 500's with inductions thats the only way they go hah

If you decide to go the re-map route be sure to get all the mods done to the car first. It is possible to pick up an ECU and get that re-programmed keeping you 'old' ECU intact. Not too sure if its a DIY to swop them in and out.
Also, if you were looking for a 'long life performance exhaust' BTB do one but it will set you back around a grand. There are some RR graphs on here with most of the gains are mid-range.
