Arrow Evo TUNING

Hey Guys,

Im thinking of getting my Evo tuned but am not sure what the best option is...

does anyone have any suggestions?
Are there any recommended tuners for FIAT?
Do grande owners seem to have a favorite company? if so who?

thanks!

I think out of all the places ive looked (remaps & boxes) this seems to claim the best gains but im still skeptical of a "piggy back" box over a remap. only thing pulling me towards the TMC is that it is removable. May look into the device type product they sell to set the maps instead. I think bluefin also do them.

Anyone measured the size gap of the air box space?? am looking to get a BMC twin cone

Re: Evo TUNING

They are about on the forums (TMC) and do offer a discount im almost certain he has the box fitted and theres a fitting video here (that may help?)


And instructions (pulled from AlexK of Abarthforum)
Im assuming the fitting will be the same, Although im sure TMC can confirm

Looks good! I do think this shall be going on my list of things to do!

Im currently looking into induction kits. I think i shall be looking into the Twin Cone (BMC) due to wanting to hear the noise from the dump.

But i dont want to order the wrong one! Do you know the dimensions for fitting and more importantly the diameter of the intake pipe?

I think it is 76mm but BMC do 70mm, 76mm, 80mm and more!!

thanks

Re: Evo TUNING

I'm not sure but no doubt there will be someone that does.

When you find out, I'd appreciate it if you could leave a post here or PM me showing which you get and whether you think its worth it. I had a browse over a few websites yesterday but it really doesn't help when you dont know what sizes you need :P

Fairly sure its a 70mm OD you need, its easy enough to check it all, just wait for a dry day and then pop the airbox off and do all your measuring (twice to be on the safe side). Doesnít take that long to do.
Thanks IronHorse thanked for this post

Re: Evo TUNING

Hey Guys,

Im expecting to take delivery of a Evo Sporting 135 at the end of the month, just wanted some ideas as to where i can find approved tuning parts, i.e. remaps, filters, exhausts and a dump valve?

are you actually buying the car or getting it on finance? as in pcp you dont actually "own" the car, the finance company do, and it expressly forbids making modifications

My understanding of this is if the car is returned back to standard when they receive that car it isnt a problem,
