DARYL’S ROAD TO TUNING
Santa Pod Raceway.....
I brought the car originally to try save some money after my previous car was a money pit when it come to tuning. I've always liked the abarth punto since it come out when I was deciding about a new car I just had to purchase one. And since that day I have never looked back. It's a blast to drive and so much fun. Not to forget the amount off attention it gets.
After owning the car for few months I then decided to get her remapped from 163bhp to about 180bhp. I still didn't feel it was quite fast enough even tho it was mainly due to the car I had before. ( stripped out seat Ibiza tdi running 320bhp 400ft lb )
Knowing the multiair engine was abit of a ballache to tune I still decided to go head and modify her. After speaking to Chris and Thodoris at multiair tuning and developments he gave me the confidence that they had cracked the multiair tuning. So I decided to start purchasing upgrades and software to read and write files to the ecu along with software to do data logs to give feed back to multiair tuning and developments.
The car is still in the tuning stages and I'm working close with Thodoris sending him over logs and reciving new files. Keep a eye on this space as i will be updating my results of the tune once it had been put on a dyno hopefully some time in January.
