You would obviously notice the difference in power, 40 nm is a fair bit of torque.
John501

All of the PR regarding the Esseesse for the Evo states it's only 20Nm more torque (250 Nm @ 2250 RPM standard car and 270 Nm @ 3000 RPM with the upgrade).

Here's Abarth's Italian website link http://www.abarth.it/it/CMSIT/Kit_Abarth/Pages/KitPunto.aspx which sates 270 Nm @ 3000 rpm - unless the Italian cars are a lower spec, which seems unlikely, and especially the press in the UK quote the same figures.

IMHO you'd need to jump directly from a standard Evo to an Evo Esseessee and do some low speed acceleration in 6th in both cars, to notice any difference in 'pull' with the upgrade :wave:

    That's what I was thinking, its quite minor, there is probably 15lb difference between a hot day and a cold one.

    Hmmm so shall I expect a phone call tomorrow from MM saying they can't complete the fitting of the kit or will they just 'forget' to do the mapping?
    I did have a chat about the effect that an independant remap or TMC would have on the warranty though - think I'll be waiting a while for an answer on that one!

    WOW, I got a figure wrong. Sorry I dont have all the cars spec off the top of my head ::)
    My experience with 3 years with Abarth is that you WILL feel the difference between an NP and and Esse Esse.
    Sorry of you feel you are far more qualified to comment on the Abarth product than me, even of the finished article doesn't actually exist yet :wave:

    There is no centre box on the standard car.
    Best guess is that the centre pipe and seperate back box are there to avoid the centre pipe being cut too short as on the AGP and blowing the back box off.
    The exhaust note is definately deeper and more boomy
    Got a few pops and crackles too 

    Like mine that was cut short and my back box comes off
    with it off it pops and bang nice  ;D

    Well my car is sat on my drive filled with lovely EsseEsse bits and pieces including the factory remap - apparently after some discussion with Torino the map was uploaded without any issues!!
    Very happy so far especially with all the whizz popping out of the new exhaust ;D

    I am told that the map became available after I left yesterday to drive to Goodwood  :bat:
    Glad you like it :thumb:

    How does that equate to performance change?  8)

    Great kit is here at last. Still no info on abarth uk or international sites about price.

    RRP is £3370 but it may vary due to labour rates around the country

    I drove Ivan Gibson's EVO SS round the track at Goodwood on Thursday and can confirm, hand on heart, that the EVO SS is a better all round car than the GPA SS...

    So much so I am desperately trying to find reasons not to change cars...  Poor Carmen! :'(

    Hard to really tell from a youtube clip but it sounds like the SS exhaust might have actually put a sting in the tail of the Evo ;D



    Well you can hear something more than the silence.
