    Ah I was pretty close with my guesstimate then :)

    @ Needsmust :  They gave it two power runs to verify the box and then a quick street drive to check all was OK.  It needed no further tweaking.

    Its good to see an Abarth owner pioneering these mods.  Im collecting my 500 Abarth in 2 weeks time, currently have an Edition 30 Gti Golf, bit of a difference size wise but I like the idea of a crazy highly modified small car just for the quizical WTF! looks it will get as it motors along. ;D

    Its nice to see detailed reports given on the mods, I've also looked at the Romeo Ferrari kits but hard to decipher the Italian through the google translator, always a bit muddled up.

    Love to take the car over the 200+ mark to see what it can do.

    Anyone have the G-tech price list PDF that they can post up??????

    Good to see that G Tech are taking a responsible approach to increased performance. I think their guarantee says a great deal about them as a company and what is achieveable.

    It also shows that in terms of total cost of ownership, the A500 SS upgrade does provide good value.

    Not that strange I'm mostly certain the turbo is max rated for 1.3, G-tech are good enough to know how not to blow up turbos and yet extract more BHP out the engine  ;D

    Not really, I think the SS only boosts to 1.2 as well - and that makes 160bhp.

    Looks and sounds awesome! Had a quick scan, couldn't find the 0-60 bit? (or in your case 0-100 KPH) Any idea?
    If i were to guess, i would say 7.1
