Smile Abarth Chip/remap tuning...

To any stilo Abarth owners...
Has any one had an abarth chipped/tuned/remapped, if yes what sort of power increase did you get and at what price.

Any info would be great.

Re: Abarth Chip/remap tuning...

Not yet, but imminent once I have discussed options with alfanige! You seen their website, link at top of page - Angel Tuning - come highly recommended.

Please be aware that prices tend to be negotiated between Nige and yourself, and so not open for general discussion , unless I am told differently.

Nothing to think about, surely.

Nige tests your car as standard, then puts new map on, then tests again to prove the results. You then have 7 days to try it in your own time, or else you get your money back and original map back on!

Easy

Re: Abarth Chip/remap tuning...

It would still be nice to know the potential power gains. I know really it's meaningless but little graphs or before and after figures just make it all seem worth the money. How about a rough figure are we talking 5% or 20%. I'm not knocking Angel at all but why use them rather than Superchips.....? Well apart from the very obvious one... they don't tune the Stilo Abarth yet?
Oh and one last thing, if the engine is producing more power would it be a good idea to fit an induction kit and a free flow exhaust too?

Re: Abarth Chip/remap tuning...

Er, superchips is a HARDWARE modification, Angel is SOFTWARE based - do I need to spell it out???

It depends - I understand that on certain cars like the Ulysse JTD, the increase was around 40% or so of BHP. Obviously different for petrol models.

Any other mods would be useful - I have heard as well that a CDA BMC airfilter is a worthwhile addition to the Abarth.

Re: Abarth Chip/remap tuning...

Rite ho

The main difference between Superchips and ourselves is that they will do a STOCK modified chip ONLY, which will gain you about 12bhp usually for 511. This is actualy a remap these days by the way, not a chip.

Here at Angel towers we will take a copy of your original map, match it against a modified one that meets your requirements, gain you about 15bhp and charge you at least 200 less!

We can do a dyno run if required for an extra 60 but we strip it out of the cost becuase as most people know they are pretty meaningless stats, but make nice graphs.

We use an AP22 performance meter to give you actual on the road statistics between your standard tune and the modified one. This is a variety of tests that we can do to your requirements (0-60, 50-70 in various gears, 1/4 mile's etc etc) and put them in a stats pack for you. This you can then take down the pub and it means something , even to the barmaid ;-)

Lastly with what we do, its completely reversible, we come to you and you have a 14 day cooling off period whereby if you dont like it for ANY reason, we put you back to standard and refund you - simple as that. Plus we are easy to please and only drink black coffee with no sugar :-)

Seriously though we can also do custom maps to take into account other modifications and simply try different things if required.

Best bet is to email us direct for a quotation though angelobdtuning@hotmail.com or give me a ring for a friendly chat 07810 122029

Hey Stiloboy, with your economy and top end speed, you will make it within a few minutes and on fumes anyway

I think they're midlands based?

We come to you basically. You can come to us if you want but its best to book in advance as we do 95% of the tuning on the road these days. We are in the Midlands, but we do a lot of work up North (did Leeds, Rochdale and Cumbria yesterday)

We did Stirling, Kilmarnock and Glasgow a few weeks ago, but we will be back to Scotland soon.

May I suggest that if you want correct answers you drop us an email as I don't get on here as much as I used to :-(

Re: So true Paul!

Sold, too wasteful to have it on a drive rusting away. Got 325 for it so the depreciation for the year (well, 18 months of ownership) was about 50 lol. Renewal for insurance was about 750 so sadly I can't keep it. It was a similar extra cost for ensuite

Sammi is just 30 mins away now though so I will be taking advantage of her new wheels (lol: to sammi, just kidding )

You can shut up, you're one of the richest students i know lol

Re: So true Paul!

So assuming you have your chip reprogammed is it traceable!? For example i have a problem with my car, i take to uncle Arnold, the car is attached to the Fiat computer will they know the car has been fiddled with, or will they be able to un-program what you have changed without telling me.
