"Fast Road Pack"
« on: April 23, 2013, 10:11:38 am »
I'm definitely a n00b when it comes to tuning, so go easy on me  :) ...
...h owever, while I'm saving my pennies for my own Abarth, I like reading about them and I came across the "Fast Road Pack" that Angel Tuning do consisting of:

Angel Tuning Remap
ITG Panel Filter
EBC Turbo Drilled & Groved Disc's
EBC Green Stuff pads
Goodridge Brake Hose Kit
Eibach Pro Kit Springs
£1150 includes all labour and VAT

I couldn't see that it'd been discussed before, so wondered what you experts thought of it. From what I can gather it's a cheaper way of getting the Esseesse performance.

Anybody have experience of it? Thoughts on the components? I notice there's no damper change and so would that give the same hard ride as an Esseesse?

Cheers  :thumb:

    Other tuners offer similar alteratives to the factory Esseesse pack which I think is slowly being phased out with the introduction of the 595s

    If your looking to do it all in a oner then it makes sense... Personally Id look to go for Bilstein coilovers rather than just springs, add a cat back exhaust and possibly a sport cat Then get the car mapped but both would put the price up

    Very personal thing why not look at TMC and GTTuning packages, thing the later is just power packages rathan a full SS style kit but you could try emailing GTTuning and see if they can offer a complete package

    Angel remap -had some good reports on this forum, filter does not make too much difference. EBC brakes, they have been in the business for some years, a favourite with bikers. Goodridge fine - add some good fluid.

    Dampers - are you buying an older car? if so budget to get some alternative dampers. If new car Konis are an improvement, you might not want the springs.

    One man's hard ride is another man's good handling ;D

    I'd go for a remap and catback exhaust and keep the change....
    The Panel filter will do nothing at all, I'm dubious the brake changes will make any significant difference (although the discs may look nice depending on your taste) and the springs will just serve to make the ride overly crashy. Just my opinion tho!

    Discs are a pointless change imo.  Just get decent pads (better than greenstuff) and braided hoses and 5.1 fluid.

    £1150 is a lot of cash for that list of parts, for that money I'd be looking at remap (Angel), Bilsteins and then change the brake hoses and pads yourself and you'd still do it for less I reckon.

    Why not do one area at a time, start with the brakes - like mentioned good pads and lines with a change of fluid.

    Suspension is as much a styling mods as a handling/performance mod - Bilsteins come in at under £500 say £600 there abouts fitted could be less depending on where fitted and how long it takes.

    The above mods will really future proof the car for power mods and allow you to really drive the car with great confidence, braking later and handling more steady with less crash n bounce

    Power, well if your just looking to round off the carin standard form just get the car remap'd and throw in a BMC panel filter just for good measure even if it only gives you 1bhp, its a superior quality filter imo compared to standard.

    If you want more look at a sport cat and cat back sports exhaust before you have the remap done.

    Still want more uprated actuator, maybe change of intercooler setup to a single front mounted intercooler and map.

    What? You want MORE, ok... Bin the factory IHI turbo, swap it out for the Garrett turbo found on the Punto/695 and wind that boost up.

    Now your just being silly, Ok so you still want more?!?!? Change cams for fast road items, look at uprated internals pistons etc, maybe look to gasflow the head, uprated injectors, uprated fuel pump, even more agresive map, aqua-mist system to cool intake charge down, anti-lag system that throws fuel into the system to keep the turbo spinning on gear changes and off throttle which creates banging and back-firing in the exhaust like a ture rally car...

    If your pockets are deep enough anything is possible

    The EBC brakes from Angel are a bit pricey though. Correct me if im wrong but its £105 to have the front pads fitted, i make that out to me about £30 too much really. I bought both front and back for £80 the other day.
