fiat punto mark1

hello i have a 1999 (T reg) fiat punto 1.2 8v. im thinking of adding an iduction kit as i have not enougth money to buy another car or insure another 1,
so im thinking of modding it slightly jus to get better bhp and to sound a little better.

The focus induction kit is a trusted option, I have one in my Sei.

cheers.
i agree get a k&n one, was gonna sell my k&n for a focus induction kit cos everyone on this forum said it sound better and gives more performance, but then i heard my mates punto 1.2l 8v like mine with a focue induction and it sounded sh*t tbh, just sounded rattly and not as loud, deep or throaty as my k&n and i get a little tiiish noise wen i let go of the revs with k&n didnt get that with my mate focus kit, and yes he did put it on right.

Re: fiat punto mark1

probably better off giving the engine a good service and in any case you will have to inform your insurance company of the modification and they may up the premium.....

Re: fiat punto mark1

You've got the same problem I had, I bought a Focus kit 2nd hand from a member here and my Sei's throttle body is exactly the same as that. My solution? Acquire a 'bob' from an 899cc Cinq (there's one in the classified I think) and various other parts to connect and you'll end up with something like this:
