Smile My Bravo T-Jet 150 Abarth!....Eventually

He we have my lovely Fiat Bravo T-Jet 150 hp!

I've had her for about 6 months now and am starting to have some bits done!

Only thing for the moment is the 500 Abarth wheels but the rest is yet to come!

My plan is:
  • Full turbo-back exhaust system (a quiet one though! i aint no yob! )
  • Re-map to 185HP
  • Lowering springs on the rear! (you could sleep in the arch gap currently! )
  • Caliper re-spray
  • Full Abarth Re-badge
  • Filters and Hoses



I will keep this thread updated on any changes i make!
If anyone has done these mods already and can suggest any link or stuff that would be really helpful aswell!

Turbo-back stainless is the best starting mod you can do.
I got a full 2.25" custom done on my 150T and it just opens it up to a whole new level. Still to get it remapped though...
Like the alloys off the 500, strangely suits the Bravo!

Re: My Bravo T-Jet 150 Abarth!....Eventually

I only installed a 2.75 down pipe catless, and a vl 36 turbocharger (my bravo is a 120)
The vl 36 is the one u have on your 150
Remapped it and got 187 wheel hp with 29 kgm

Re: My Bravo T-Jet 150 Abarth!....Eventually

Thanks for the info on the exhausts guys! I have had plenty of quotes but have yet to bite the bullet!

The thing is i love the fact that its so quiet on the road and i wonder if a custom exhaust would make an awful drone on the motorways. Have you lot noticed anything like that??

And i will join the Facebook, page tonight if i can get on!

Looks great with the 500 wheels - don't think I've ever seen a bravo with them on

Re: My Bravo T-Jet 150 Abarth!....Eventually

I think it looks awful with the 500 wheels. These wheels are just not made for the Bravo. They are rounded and are obviously designed for a small, "cute" car. It's just my opinion though, enjoy your car

Go to a longlife centre and get the mild sport tone, it's barely louder than standard, can't be heard in the car and from outside its a subtle grunt if you give it some

I've the 1.6 105. I'm thinking of an exhaust upgrade. Yours hangs so much better post op
Which 1.6 do you have the 105 or 120?
