Pictures of a Tempra

Hi!

Just wanted to share my creation with all the Fiat lovers.

It's a 1.4 SX Tempra with some light modding. Currents specs:

- 16" rims (model San Remo from Alessio)
- Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 size 215/40ZR16
- Weitek springs (lowered the car 35 mm)
- Sparco direct intake air filter
- Bosch Super 4 spark plugs
- Remus Turbo Design exhaust (102 mm round)

Personally I think the rear view is awesome, it's got that racing look :D The side view shows off one of the Tempra's qualities: with some minor props, you get a sporty look, thanks to it's low nose and high rear, besides being a comfy and spacy car without being huge.

The next changes will be mounting side skirts and air intakes on the hood and side panels. Afterwards, I'll change the engine for (possibly) a 2.0 turbo unit from the Coupé [}:)]

Enjoy!

P.S: The pictures were taken from a Nokia 7650, so please go easy on the pic quality :I

The pictures didn't show!!

Looks like a nice tidy example but some decent photos would probably do it better justice....

Really like the wheels.

Thanx guys for the replies!

As I said, the next step would be fitting a new engine. I was real close of getting a Ferrari engine :D in my car, but the engine had two broken pistons :(. You might be thinking, a Ferrari engine ?!? Yep, from a Lancia Thema 8.32. A 3 litre V8 engine designed by Ferrari for Lancia. The guy was willing to sell me the whole car for only 75 Euros ! But besides the broken pistons, fuel consumption was also a problem: 30 litres per 100 km [:0]

But I'm still looking for a suitable engine.

I'm planning to update the pictures so stay tuned!

Regards.

lol, this car prolly has a kerb weight around 1000kg's, it'd be kinda dumb to put a v8 on it. Better get yourself something like the 8v Dohc turbo 114KW engine from the Croma...with such a light body it'll prolly achieve 100km/h in around 7 secs and my croma turbo was very economic when driven nicely...on the highway ~6.7l/100 @ ~110km/h.
The v8 will f**k up your front/rear balance and the chassis will prolly need to be improved...

I'll be updating the pictures tomorrow (30/12/2003) and I'll probably have some news on a engine (Lancia Thema 4 cylinder, 2 liter engine producing over 150 hp). Stay tuned!
