Abarth 500/595

We got our development Abarth 595 at the end of 2016. The vehicle was a 2016 series 3 model with the euro 6 engine. The T-jet engine found in the Abarth was introduced back in 2008 and provided great performance in a small package. originally quoted to have 135bhp they went through several iterations including 140 / 145 / 160 / 180 variations.  

Our test vehicle was on the newer euro 6 engine software with 140ps as standard equipped with the ihi turbo. On our advanced Maha msr500 dyno the vehicle made 145bhp / 205nm in stock form. We then applied our stage 1 map to the vehicle and achieved a very reasonable 170bhp / 253nm. As you can see in the dyno plot above the dotted line represents the original stock run, gains are across the entire rev range with large gains of 58nm at 3200rpm and 35bhp at 4600rpm.

The next step was to improve the airflow for the vehicle. A performance Air Filter, silicon Turbo Intake Hose was added as well as a Cobra-Sport Cat-Back 2.5" exhaust system (2.25"stock). This allowed the vehicle to boost earlier and allowed the vehicle to breathe better through the rpms.

We achieved just under 180bhp and 265nm. From the dyno plots you can see the better results the performance parts allowed us to achieve when combined with our stage 1 map. For more power on the ihi turbo an uprated actuator and full induction kit (with a cold air feed) is needed. Please note - the earlier euro 5 engines do tend to react a little better to tuning.


•Stage 1 - This map is for the a stock vehicle and is benefitted with minor upgrades. Peak boost hits 1.2Bar on the ihi turbo and allows the vehicle to make 170-175bhp with 255-265nm (these are dyno correct figures measured on our state of the art maha msr500 dyno, please be careful when having remaps carried out without dyno testing). With the engines equipped with the larger Garret gt1446 turbo figures of 200-210bhp and 290-300nm can be achieved.
