Well I have some bad news..... THEY'RE DIFFERENT! We removed the throttle body off of our grigio sport and the connector is different. Other than that, the throttle body is just about identical. Why did they do this? Who knows. I have already contacted Cory at Modern Performance to see if we can team up together to offer a solution to the N/A motors. I will keep everyone updated. Here are some pictures to show the difference (sorry some of them are blurry).

Any updates? I purchased one of these a few months ago for a sport and haven't installed it yet wondering if this will also be the case for me too?

Welcome to the forum!

Seeing as I do not have one of these I have nothing to offer but I do hope you find out sometime soon the info you are after.

I don't think these fit the N/A motors. They were listed for the turbo and the N/A but I think Modern made a mistake when they listed these for the regular 500. I would call them Monday and check.

The ported throttle body will not work for the non turbo. We teamed up with Cory to have a non turbo throttle body bored out but it is not possible due to being a Bosch unit. So for now, bummer for the non turbo cars.

Guess this mean we will see one for sale soon. :(

I'd think they would take it back though since it wasn't made for the car it was purchased for and it sounds like maybe it got listed wrong.

Yeah, I was going on the assumption of how it was listed on their site and ordered somewhat blindly based on the listing. I have looked at mine and it does look slightly different but it's hard to compare on the car. Otherwise the part is new in box as I got it and looks very well modded/done. Reason I've been sitting on it is cause I am collecting parts at the moment and planned on going all in, once I had everything all at once. We'll see how it goes. . .

I don't mean to hyjack this thread but I have to ask - have you or anyone you know tryed their underdrive kit on a non-turbo? They told me they don't think it will work on a non-turbo but they are not sure. I just thought you might have tryed that too.

under drive what? a pulley?
underdrive crank pulley - they offer one for the turbo but are not showing it as an application for the mouth breather.

I have not looked it all up...but in the end One will find a trk load off differences between N/A and forced.
From a cost stand point it would make no sense (cents LOL ) to put the same pistons crank and rods in a application that does not demand it.

The crank pulleys, from what I've seen, look the same. Belt size application thru Fiat are showing the same part number, and the mounting and trigger wheel look identical so I'd say go for it Tom, Modern should be willing to take it back if it will not fit (assuming the part has not been installed or marred up)

I've seen conflicting info on the 'net so I could not tell just by the part number x-referencing

read through 10 pages of this bullshit looking for your experience with the product, zonker

thank you for wasting my time, as well as contributing nothing but a picture showcasing your poor genes. What an absolute mouth breather
