wow thats good for a standard! what bar do you hit on your turbo?because some A500 only hit 0.9bar and others 1.2bar do u reckon that has something to do with the output?

I've done 4000 in mine and the turbo hits 1.2bar now! and mines standard and i dont have an SS kit!

    Probably an inaccurate gauge (sorry to put a downer on your happy thoughts but there you go...)
    A500 + TMC + BMC + Yellowstuff + Motul RBF600 + KW V1 + OMP & Strut Braces - rear seats = esseesse+, + Change.

    Don't be fooled by these cheap dynos! I learnt something today; the power showing on some rolling roads flatters to decieve! The expensive Dyno Dynamic rolling road produces accurate power graphs. It is a lot more expensive than some of the other rolling roads, and the figures are less optimistic, but true. Fiat, if anything are a little optimistic, I am sorry to say, and you are not likely to see the proper power output till the engine is run in.
