Talking Newbie to fiats

Hi name is WeeRob (go by Weeman but it was already taken) just got myself a nice 2008 Black AGP with cloth seats. I have started doing upgrades to it so far the Brakes where replaced with EBC performance disc Front/Rears and EBC Green stuff pads. Wheels replaced with 18" Ich OZ WRC alloys Gold colour. Exhaust replaced with a turbo back system with a single 4" Ich Blued tip pipe. Forge subframe braces fitted, had to mod around exhaust pipe. Intercooler replaced with a Airtec Intercooler (Red logo, yellow hoses). Intake pipe replaced with a Aluminium intake pipe with red hoses to Airbox with BMC filter. Headlight replaced with Angle eyes black head light unit.Still got the Suspension to do and then the re-map. Post photos soon. Any ideas on a good Suspensions Kits spring/shocks.

Re: Newbie to fiats

Hello and welcome.

Sorry I cant help with your questions, but I do have a 2009 AGP EsseEsse in Black - good to see yours.

I hesitate to say it, but there is also a busy FB group for Abarth Puntos. People in there will know about mods if no one here can help.

Still looking for a Turbo kit..... seen one on TMC motorsport looks like a good kit come with turbo, map sensor and injectors . Also looking for oil cooler kits if anyone knows any ?????... Going to remove my box air filter and replace with a BMC twin air cone filter and a heat shield wrapped in the Funk Motorsport Gold reflective tape...
