help with my panda trekking

Hi guys new to the forum need some advise I have purchaced a very nice panda trekking from posh but do you chaps have any tech/info docs on this car looks very similar to my other two 4x4's with the mods added elec. windows, locking, tilt headlamps. I'm intrested to get some details on the exhaust system from front to back this car is fitted with a cat but the bore is the same as my sisley and other 4x4 but my wife's 1100cc Auto larger pipe so how is the engine breathing with the extra 108cc? need to know before I start on the brakes any body know if the discs are the size that is on the auto or is the smaller size as fitted to my 4x4
I am asking the questions because I have a ticker that needs a blast of electric to sort it out and I am still waiting for the NHS to give me a date hence reluctant to get stuck in and have a look at the moment next question drilled and groved who could supply them?? cheers allen
PS any body going to the xmas do next weekend??

Re: help with my panda trekking

Hi Allen, well done on the purchase...

you are stuck with a unique problem being that no-one else on the forum and perhaps the UK has got one of these import 4x4's with the exception of the guy in France. So information is going to be hard to come by and perhaps the parts (doubtful but possible).

I think the extra power is from the cam on the engine and not so much the diameter of the exhaust. if the comments on carsfromitalia.net are right you have got the 54bhp engine in it... the 4 extra horses are from the cam profile.

the front disks i would have thought if they were different from the existing 4x4 would have been upgraded the same size as the 1.1 selecta. I don't think it would have been FIAT's style to make a unique size... their models seem to share components frequently.

While Alan and myself were working on PU2's ill fated (wherever it went... !!! annoying ) 4x4 Country Club we noted that the lever system is on the inside of the body shell which made the route of the exhaust much cleaner/straighter even with the CAT on it, making only diversions around the rear diff.

Re: help with my panda trekking

Cheers for the contact I'm going to germany in the new year look as if I better get at the very least the exhaust system from the cat back thats if the germans stock them , how about those disc's do you know who might stock the groved and drilled type and should i be looking at fiat pads or a upgrade ebec?? the whole lot should look well with the new alloy fiat wheels I have had in stock for the last three years

Re: help with my panda trekking

I doubt if much has changed, yes the electrics and dme for the engine management but the running gear brakes I would immagine will be the same as much of the late 80's/90's panda parts were used in the cinq etc.

Re: help with my panda trekking

Putting your chassis number into a copy of Eper should answer most of your questions. The last of the mk2b's (1994) sold in the UK had the linkages inside the car and the smooth exhaust routeing. cheers Damon

Re: help with my panda trekking

Not wanting to rain on your parade Allen but why on Earth did Gina sell you such a lovely car and buy that shabby pink one to replace it? Ginas (now yours) car is probably the best in the country by miles. No doubt the Panda community is weeping into their collective beers that it wasn't them who got that lucky!

Re: help with my panda trekking

Hi thanks for your contact Gena bought some tyers and wheels off (street) Urchin he told me about the car as you know ladys like dimonds or money,I think the latter got the better of her. I have a number of extras that I am going to fit on to it including the missing f/O big mud flap I didn't find it in the boot, Plus some road legal tyers for winter rims are away for blasting and repainting. I have five alloy wheels and deep grip tyers for sommer trips. Some ladys incl. my wife if it starts runs then its ok never look at oil water and petrol don,t be daft thats my job I'll get my hand dirty or it was cold. I'v got a good front and rear bullbar's lamp guard's for front and rear new. and some nice chrome spots 100watts thats all to go on the car. Urchins still chasing me for his old 4x4 back he's no chance that one is in winter wraps heated garage and dehumidifer running 24 7

Well done on the purchase Allen. That Panda is lucky, leaving one loving owner for the arms of another loving owner

Re: help with my panda trekking

It seems the only reason to get drilled and grooved disks is for the looks, they'll have no benefit to a car with this power. In fact the brakes will be marginaly worse due to the lower surface area

Re: help with my panda trekking

that just sunk my boat it would only have been for the looks cos if I don't like the new wheels I'll put them and tyers back into the garage stock cubd.take the point about the less surface area, and as we all know panda brakes not the best on earth.
