Re: Fiat Bravo 155 HGT

Nice looking motor this, don't know why I have never liked them but I love the idea, just not a fan of the Brava/o.


Always wondered how similar these engines are to the Coupe item.

Re: Fiat Bravo 155 HGT

I knew it was a good conversion in the Marea, actually wanted one for a few years but never found a good one i could afford.

Hmmmmmmmmm I may need to look into this for future plans maybe lol.

Re: Fiat Bravo 155 HGT

You couldn't stay away from the Fiats, could you Blu?
Always loved the Bravo, a friend of mine had one but it was the 1.2 12v.
Was looking to buy one myself before buying my Punto sporting, but failed to find one. Still happy though. Anyway, good luck with it! Hope you're having fun with it

Re: Fiat Bravo 155 HGT

lol, it was a spur of the moment thing - completely unplanned.
Bushboy posted that he had put it on ebay one evening, and i met him the next morning on a complete whim. Always liked the Bravo's so thought why not, seen as they are getting a bit thin on the ground now.

Re: Fiat Bravo 155 HGT

its all a bit grown up for me but yeah its great... the 5pot makes the best noise, its proper addictive. It is in great condition, just some bits feel a bit tired - I am planning to go through it and replace rubber bushings and stuff to tighten it all up and make it feel more new again.
I recently bought bushes for the gear linkages, and the rear gearbox mount - just need to find sometime to fit them. But planning to change all the suspension bushes end engine mounts and stuff like that. Just do a few at a time until everything is all new.

Re: Fiat Bravo 155 HGT

Normal bushes or are you going to upgrade? My Punto needs a suspension overhaul, i think i'm going to get some poly bushes + KYB/Bilstein dampers.
Im going for the K.I.S.S. formula this time as the car doesn't get used much.

Re: Fiat Bravo 155 HGT

undecided on that to be honest - I'm thinking probabaly polys but i would go for the softer sets if i do polys. i.e yellow if powerflex or red if strongflex
