I like my 500T it really is a wolf in sheeps clothing and they are under-rated on power.

Jan is in the works for an Abarth tune…..just sayin

Wanna trade headlights, parking lamps and taillights so your car can look super sleeper? lol

I don't know what I want to do for a tune yet. It looks like most everyone is going piggyback, even Magneti Marelli. I want to get my wideband and an actual boost gauge in before I do anything other than an intake and axle back.

Nice looking Abarth But your statement about, "mileage limit (60k)", why is that? Agree about the 05-06 interior the nicest, that's why I have went to all Athricite, and installed 06 door panels in my 03, actually makes a big difference in looks

I don't want a high mileage car. If I get something with high mileage, the first thing I'm going to spend money on is replacing wear items.

Rubber suspension parts, bushings hoses, brake lines, etc. all deteriorate over time. The newest R53 hardtop is already a 6 year old car. Cars that were driven in winter are going to start having problems with hard brake lines rusting, hinges getting tight from corrosion, dings and dents and stuff. It wasn't bad when the cars were only a year or two old but now they're all 6-10 years old.

My first R53 had 32k miles on it and my second had 28k. I don't think finding one with that low of mileage is possible now (except for maybe a GP).

The OEM boost gauge is neat, but it's jumpy and inaccurate. One of the guys from the LSx forums makes this for the FIAT and uses an Aeroforce Scangauge with a custom face. I think in the long run, i'd like to get an ATM adapter ring to put a wideband in the factory boost gauge location and run this on the pillar for everything else.

Trying to get them to sell me just an adapter ring is like pulling teeth, I may just have to buy the whole kit and sell the crappy boost gauge they give me separately.

Before I do anything else this year, I think this will be the very first purchase.

Its such crap. The black lights came out on the 500T, but weren't an option on the Abarth when I bought mine. Now the 2014 configurator is up and they are only a $250 option on any FIAT. FML!

Piggyback ECU and short shifter will be here on Saturday. Hopefully i'll be able to crack 200whp with a ported downpipe.

The Madness V2. They added an input at the cam sensor for a realtime RPM input and from what I hear, it really fixed a lot of the issues that came from the piggybacks that only use the intake MAP and boost sensor.

The two dyno graphs I saw had really nice AFRs and they both went from about 155-160 whp to 195-197.

TMC makes the ECU for Madness, I guess Madness just has their own tune that is different from the TMC one.
