Is this site mainly for the newer Fiats or is it going to include some of the Fiats of years gone by? I have a 22 year old X and am just kinda curious...

Hi Eric

It's newer Fiats at the moment, but we're hopefully going to end up with the most popular Fiats since 1899.

X1/9 should be amongst that lot.

yeah, until we can get the newer ones established, i think we'll have a hard time trying to get a load of older fiat drivers here.

of course, i could be wrong...

Well, I hope to meet and chat with a large group of Fiat folk... Doesn't really matter what year it was made... but I don't know much about the 89 and ups, they don't sell over here... :) Maybe one day they will... I know of a couple UK X sites... I should post on them and let them know about the Fiat Forum... Whatcha think?

I have heard mention of an Alfa return, but no such luck yet hearing about Fiat...


I would certainly be in line for one!!!

Nics,

The Fiat Coupe is already here, just no one else posts in there yet :) Feel free to start it off and hopefully new visitors will see it's active and stay!

Mr.X, do have any options over there, enginewise? I know several X1/9-owners here (Sweden) that use the Uno Turbo eng. (1300cc) (grreat performance!), but maybe they did not sell in the States?

Well actually, we didn't get those power plants, buta few people have put in the 2.2 dodge turbo motor. For Fiat based power normal thing is gettting a PBS big valve head or a Yugo 1100 head(for CR) and stay with a stock lower end... I have a set of dual DCOE's, anza exhaust going on my next motor and I would like to find a PBS head too...

I would love to find a 16V head someday, but I don't see it coming cheap....

It is because most americans can't handle a manual gearchange, gets in the way whilst they are having their coffee and doughnuts ;) :D

Or is it because you don't know how to handle sharp responsive cars and like to live on the wallowy side ;) :d

Sorry just messing with you :)

The standard tranny is just plan wrong... its not that we don't know how... it's that most of us are way too lazy to spend rush hour(s) up and down shifting... I personally prefer a standard tranny over an auto, but I am weird after all!!

I love to see everyone has a great sense of humour!!! <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

A few of the local Spider nuts have swapped the X calipers onto their Spiders, but if you are wanting a performance gain out of the swap then you can goto Brembo Brakes... they have a website and can set you up with the complete setup for dual piston calipers and drilled/slotted rotors and such as... I have heard from a few racers that cross drilling unvented rotors doesn't do you any good... So I can't speak for the rotors, but the calipers are going to be put on my X...

here is their link:
