Perfect, because the ensuing video is the guide that shows you how to unlock the greatest potential out of the Fiat 124 Abarth Spider.
With Abarth package, this 124’s softer suspension is exchanged for the set and that works better in the corners.
The exhaust is modified as well and hp goes up. The problem is that the hp gain is only four ponies strong, leaving quite the bit to be desired given how well the 124 handles.
That s why Eddie, the owner of this crazy vehicle, modified it to make about 220 hp, all of which is sent to the rear wheels through the proper manual transmission.
To upgrade a tiny turbocharged 1.4-liter engine, Eddie needed to exchange the stock spool for the larger turbocharger.
What results is the car that just begs to be driven fast. With the top down, the volley through the corners brings life to the driver.
However, with the feather-light footprint, the Fiat also feels dynamic. Regardless of how much better he’s made his 124, and Eddie wants more power and more speed. His previous project, a 400 hp Fiat 500, used the larger turbocharger than the one he used on the 124.
With plans to exchange the 124’s turbo for a same one used in the 500, Eddie could soon be the owner of the world’s most desirable 400 hp Fiat 124.
