Turbo Technics’ Abarth 500 originally left the factory with 135bhp, which is enough power to have a bit of fun with a small city car. However, for those of us who like a little more performance, we thought it could do with a bit more power to spice things up a bit – almost twice the power to be exact!
From 135BHP to 260BHP – how did we achieve it?
To make the 125bhp jump we fitted our bespoke turbocharger upgrade for the Abarth 500 (the S260), and supported it with some other bolt-on upgrades and a custom map courtesy of JF Automotive. Here is the full list of upgrades:
• Turbo Technics S260 bespoke performance turbocharger and fitting kit
• Scorpion stainless steel turbo-back exhaust system
• Bosch uprated injectors
• Abarth 180bhp uprated sensor pack
• Mito stage 1 organic clutch upgrade
• JF Automotive custom remap
• Complete forged engine
• FMIC Airtec intercooler
We also took things a little further than most, with a mild port and polish to the head, and a set of Wossener forged rods and pistons to allow us to push the tuning without too much compromise to the reliability.
