I've not ordered any yet. I'll wait until you've got those and fitted them.

It works, it just has a bit of condensation.

Re: RussJTD's '09 StarJet Grande Punto

cheers @Reuuk

not entirely sure what i'll be doing to it.

Its supposed to be a standard reliable car for work and university and day to day stuff. but cant afford a toy car. so inevitably i'll crave to mod it.


Think the mod's list will be;

Abarth/Sporting alloys.
35/40mm lowering springs

I want to do an induction for it. but theres not much around for the StarJet as its a slightly different intake compared to the older 1.4 16v.

Hey, looks like your wanting to do an induction kit for Starjet

I did mine using pippes which @sammclean23 had from his 1.4 8v and added a 90 degree elbow bend and used his alloy t-piece as a connector

Quite easy to fit in as no breather pipe is attached to the air filter box, plenty of room at the front end to add the new Induction filter in.

Heres a picture of mine:-

Re: RussJTD's '09 StarJet Grande Punto

I bought it 2nd hand from a chap in Inverness (he was the one that took the sticker off), I never actually used it but it was intended to go into my 126 after an engine swap. I did however help Sam to get all the correct bits of piping, etc to fit his engine

Re: RussJTD's '09 StarJet Grande Punto

I cant believe someone took the stickers off it if im to be honest I would have prefered them on.

Yep you did!! was brill when it finally fitted but unfortunately, I needed a bit of extra cash and this was the only thing I could think to sell.

At least it's been put to good use though

Looks good. like how its taken in front of the engine to where the standard airbox would come in

Is there any noticable difference in sound/performance/torque. I would expect it to be minimal. but even so

Re: RussJTD's '09 StarJet Grande Punto

It has a quite roar when you put your foot down and if you are light on the throttle you only just hear it, which I like personally

There is only a small increase in power maybe 5-10hp imo.

Also it will only fit to where the standard box would be to as there isnt enough room anywhere else for the BMC
