Weird, my experience of 1.9 ownership is very different. Itís one thing to increase boost on an engine and it not go bang. But itís another thing to drive down the road and not have the cambelt give way, the water pump seize up or the turbo fail. The flywheel give up, the EGR valve block up, these engines are very comment and have a large amount of common failure points.

You ainít gonna get 400hp under the bonnet of a mark2b 1.3 multijet without seriously re-engineering things like the gearbox, brakes running gear and subframe

400bhp on a stock 1.9 would need a huge turbo which would also add some pretty huge turbo lag.

Re: My "RICE" Punto MK2B aka Night Party Mobile

Nice looking car! I would get a stearing wheel from punto sporting and black leather seats from Alfa 147. O and Ante that white Punto is a beast.
But that is 16v with reinforced flywheel, big ass turbo and a bunch of other mods. But the fact that internal are stock is impresive.

thank you. about the leather seats, i bought one set thinking it was from 147 but was from 156.. seats look identical but the mounting is differant, i still have them at home, but since they are not a direct replacment like 147, im still working on welding new mountings so i can use them

Re: My "RICE" Punto MK2B aka Night Party Mobile

I like the ones from GT more than the ones from 147. The problem is that GT is a 3 door car and my JTD is a 5 door. They fit but they have that lach for flipping the seat over so it looks kinda out of place. I know I am a bit OCD like that
