So we went a tuning today. JF Automotive (specialist Abarth tuners) got hold of my car for the afternoon and fitted her with a Stage 1 tune. My Abarth Turismo at stock was 165bhp and 230Nm torque. Following a ECU + software upgrade she is now pushing 198bhp and 330Nm torque. The car was dyno run before and after the upgrade. The improvement in performance and fuel economy is striking to say the least. A further part of the process was the fitting of a Forge Motorsport cold induction kit with blue details (pic below). I also fitted 15mm spacers to the back wheels and 13mm to the front – so she feels more planted under drive, acceleration and braking. To finish her off I had some new wing mirror caps sprayed Campovolo grey and attached. Couple these changes with the new Magneti Marelli valved exhaust and we have one tasteful but faster than an Abarth Essesse OEM+ car.
