VEHICLE STORY

Before committing my fully built 1.4L to the 500, I decided I wanted the power to the rear wheels instead. So I traded it in. My new engine is capable of up to 600 whp but a stepped approach is being taken with lots of documentation. This thing was on the dyno before it had 1900 km on the clock. Coilover Install

I finally found you Eddie. Ever since I saw the "The Big Turbo Fiat 124 Abarth Spider Project | Italian Insanity?!" video I've been intrigued with your plans for the 124. I have one myself and I cant wait to mod it myself.

[]Eddie Clark

They’re great cars. I just had mine on the tail of the Dragon 👍

[]Javier Ramirez

That's funny you say that. That's where Ill be headed this weekend. That being said, I have also been to the Tail before. The car can take those turns extremely well.

[]Eddie Clark

It just loves those turns! Have fun and be safe!

Keep up the good work Eddie!

[]Patrick Donovan

Love your abarth. What type and size socket did you use to remove your abarth seats?.

[]Tom Armstrong

Love the sound of these little beasts...

[]Mark Bird

Did the new downpipe give you the check engine light?

[]Eddie Clark

There's been no CEL so far.

[]Sac Car Scene

Beautiful Car Eddie. Look forward to seeing more from your garage.

[]Eddie Clark

Thanks!

[]Andrew Johnson

Looks like a good day at the dyno! What are you planning next?

[]Eddie Clark

Going to add the basic bolt-ons. FMIC, actuator, turbo back exhaust, stuffed turbo with dyno tuning every step of the way. Then the built engine will go in and be broken in on the stuffed turbo. Then it will be getting something bigger. Currently deciding on wheels for a 235/40/17 square setup.

[]Andrew Johnson

Sounds awesome, look forward to seeing the progress!
