Thanks Mightydquinn!

About to order the kit, do TMC give forum members discount? Would be nice..

What exactly are you ordering? .... Put it another way ....what are you fitting- exchanging? Is it just the turbo or are you fitting anything else? Sport CAT, oversize centre pipe, induction, intercooler etc?

 ???

    Turbo, gasket, manifold, top heat shield, top water feed, oil feed pipe, compressor outlet air hose, 200 cell sport cat is included in the kit.

    Will the cat affect my emissions, will it pass through the annual inspection of the car?

    I'm really interested to hear how you get on with this mate as I'm really interested in it myself!

    I have gone as far as I can with Abarth goodies as I can with my car.. I've got sabelts, brembos, Monza konis esseesse and this kit is the last step to make it pretty much a manual 695!


    Is the turbo manifold etc Abarth parts? Ie the same parts that are fitted to the 695's??

    The 1446 is available at your dealer.
    I believe it to be around £2000
    But
    If its the hybrid one then that's the 230 kit dans got 255 on dyno
    Mine was suplied by my dealer and fitted by tmc.
    He has done a few.
    And yes hi flow cat should still pass emissions
    As mine was moted in November. And Mir is an Abarth 200cell cat.

    I was under the (possibly misguided) impression that new injectors were needed to upgrade to the same spec as a 695?

    Or is the intention to bolt on the turbo and do the best with the current ones?

    Take a look at the AGP SS kit contents, that's essentially what you need.  Iirc you should need the injectors, but I'm sure there'll be a sticky or topic about this to confirm.

    Hi 124 what ECU are you running? Injectors? Do you need new intake for the airbox? Did the turbo come with everything for direct replacement?
