Was in AutoItalia this month. Anyone see it? They boosted the power to 130bhp but with mods like porting and flowing the head and exhaust and induction. But the thing that struck me was they never remapped the engine. Some how I don't understand how they manage to do all that power without modding the ecu.

Unfortunately, I can't get AutoItalia here but I assume that's with the normal 1.4 engine, ie. they've extracted 30 PS more? That may be possible, since Fiat themselves produced a similar amount (135 PS) in the Abarth, which uses the same 1.4 engine. Then they may have re-mapped to obtain the full 160 PS of the Essesse version. Otherwise, if they re-mapped to get 135 PS, how did they get another 25 PS on top? ;).

It's an NA engine not the turbo one and they never touched the ecu it says in the report which I find hard to believe as how can they not do that of work without a new map on the ecu.
