Personally......i think it's better to save your money to buy a Abarth than try to make an Abarth with your's 500!!I was told by a dealership here that abarth will releasing turbo and super charger kits for our 500 for those of us who won't be buying an abarth.. Has anyone else heard this?
Scuse me but the engine of a Neon SRt-4 it's a bullet proof.The only thing that i had trouble it's some seal and bushing.....no engine trouble and this car develop many HP....The difference with the caliber and neon is they were shitty cars in any form.
The abarth north America is getting is the same engine just turboed. Even if the engine mounts aren't as beefy that's a pretty easy inexpensive mod.Ok but your engine are not build to support a turbo....ok you can put a turbo on it but how many PSi the engine will support??
But if you put a turbo on your car it's your choice and i will be the first to check your project!!
The Euro abarth shares the same tranny , engine and even brakes. The main difference is the abarth is super/ turbo charged.In order to have an Abarth, you'd need to change the suspension, transmission, brakes and engine, right?
Soundsa bit expensive to me... although I'd be very happy with a small low pressure turbo and 30 extra HP. I'd stop dreaming about an Abarth, that's for sure!
I didn't know that. And I agree, if MoPar ever gets a S/C, I'd get that instead of buying an Abarth. I just love my car.The Euro abarth shares the same tranny , engine and even brakes. The main difference is the abarth is super/ turbo charged.
I just finished my first road trip to the rocky mountains here in Alberta and it handles very well and I also agree that I'd be happy with 30 more hp. If the super charger becomes available here that's what id most likely do
