Re: Abarth 595 Turismo Grigio Record Metallizzato.

Those Conti TS 850P are just great, very happy with them, very very good in heavy rain, and excellent grip overall.

Re: Abarth 595 Turismo Grigio Record Metallizzato.

Did some dampening behind the rear interior panels to improve sound from the speakers.
And what a difference that made, even with stock speakers.

Blacked out the Airfilter cover, to get a more stealth look under the bonnet.

Re: Abarth 595 Turismo Grigio Record Metallizzato.

Extra modification made to the Airbox, air flow volume increase in the lower L-bow before the Airfilter.
The opening at the end of the L-bow right before the filterbox is now almost twice the size it was before.
It can now handle airflow for well beyond 200 hp.

Re: Abarth 595 Turismo Grigio Record Metallizzato.

Good idea, but do you think that this modification has still an effect? Because you already drilled those additional holes, after L-bow.

Future dyno testing will tell.
I plan to dyno test all 3 solutions, first test with blocked L-bow upgrade and taped off 11 holes, and then with L-bow unblocked and then with the 11 holes also open.
To see what the differences are.

Re: Abarth 595 Turismo Grigio Record Metallizzato.

In Germany there is a Tuner (G-Tech), that also applies these holes to the air-box from a certain tuning stage on.

There are many Abarth tuner, that do these holes upgrade, i think more smaller holes is the better solution.
Those holes make the airbox also more noisy.

I think this is often a thoroughly desirable effect...

Two questions regarding your Brembo conversion:

1. Was it necessary to install also a bigger master cylinder?

2. Was there an update for the ABS/ESC-control module necessary, due to shifted brake balance?

Im thinking also about the 305mm discs, but not with the Brembo calipers...

I would say No and No.

Re: Abarth 595 Turismo Grigio Record Metallizzato.

Decided to make the original Turismo summer wheels white.

Don't know how it will look on the Abarth.

Did not like the Bi-Color look.
