I thought it would be useful for others and also help me determine if my Weekend 105 JTD is performing up to scratch , so lets keep this thread to the point , just post you times between 2000 and 3000 revs here.

Obviously safety first , find a quiet road on the flat and dont take any silly risks ;)

Here are mine

Year 2000 Merea Weekend 105 JTD

3rd Gear - 5 Seconds
4th Gear - 10 Seconds
5th Gear - 20 or so Seconds

These times are not to the dot, but are only intended as a rough comparison figure to compare against other cars, not a mine is faster than yours thread (y)

For my purposes I am looking for Weekend's however I dont mind other Fiat 105 JTD's joining in regardless of model out of interest just for rough comparison.

If you have any mods then please declare them :p

So come on , dont be shy lets see those numbers :D

Is that holding at 2000 RPM and then foot to the boards, or accelerating from 1500 RPM and counting between 2000 and 3000 rpm?

Thanks Hellcat.

Do you get this. At 2600 rpm although still accelerating you can feel a small pull back in performance or is it perfectly linear acceleration up to 3K.

Also ignoring the 2K-3K tests for a while, what would you say the peak turbo power range (revs) is before the turbo starts to tail off ? Where does the turbo kick in and start to tail off :)

There does seem to be a brief drop around 2600.

Unsure where the power band is yet, have only had the car a few weeks.

Cleaning out one of the rooms here I found sales brochures for the full FIAT range back in 2000.

When on your private test track you could check these out for the 105JTD Weekend

0 - 62mph - 11.2 seconds
0 - 1000m (2 people + 20kg) - 32.9 seconds.

It's the kilometer drag that will be a true reflection of your performance however at the end you will be shifting along :eek:

I'm not sure about this torque drop off at 2,600. Peak torque is at 2250 rpm and peak power is at 4000 rpm. The 'pull' should feel fairly linear from 2 - 4000 based on this.
