    Easiest way for power vs £ will be a remap. Should see you to the 170/175 mark and approx 220+ ftlbs.

    Or even cheaper is a tuning box from Blue Spark, TMC or the like.

    Id say, silicon intake hose, forge actuator and a live remap. Should sort you out, the actuator definitely helps get more torque.
    Abarth 500 2011, Campovolo Grey, BMC Filter, ProAlfa Remap.

    Got silicone intake hose, also need a breather hose, is there a aftermarket one to replace it?
    Don't want to do internals, would like to see 200bhp.
    I've read they don't need internals for 200bhp

    You'll be wanting a turbo if you want to crack the 200 mark.

    Otherwise with intercooler, turbo back exhaust and a map you might be able to crack 190 mark if you are lucky. The IHI turbo struggles to do any more.

    Although to be fair, as close to 190 and a good chunk of torque, it will go like a stabbed rat anyways.
