Fiat Tipo 2.0 16v

Post by Robbie13 » April 2nd, 2020, 12:50 pm

I had all the images nicely inline in the post, but then I did not post - I saved the draft. And of course the images were lost... So, images and comments attahed.

ECU chip replacement from fcperformance.co.uk installed.

I have a lot of small things to get done, but since nothing is urgent and it took over 5 years to get the car back on the road, I am happy just to be able to drive for now.

My dream is to build a fast road GC spec engine, maybe one day, if time and finances permit. :-)

I love DIY but I do not have the facilites, tools or knowledge and experience neded to do a project like this the way it should be done, so it was done by others.

Definetly did not plan to paint everything, just a good cleaning, but the rust look on the engine block had to be painted, and then one thing led to another ... Two hundred euro high temperature spray cans later :-)

Thank you guys !

In the meantime my mechanic finally managed to mount new rear silencers.

I have been searching for anything I could find - Abarth, Remus, Supersprint - and I found Abarth-Exhausts from The Netherlands, they had some on stock.

They are by Ansa Marmitte - Ansa Tech Exhausts.

The middle one is for my Tipo, but the rear one is for AR145, it took some fitting.

I love the improvement in the exhaust note, especially at low throttle and rpm, and not loud at all, the engine intake sound is still overwhelming when pushing it :-)

Btw, Guy, how come the forum is public now ? I remember paying for access. I've sent a message to Val, but he is not responding for now.
