    I’d love to know if we can put a boost button on or hard wire it for more boost. This version doesn’t have the sport mode.
    Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

        So google says these have an IHI RHF3 turbo, so maybe there is a Subaru turbo or Mazda turbo that's a direct bolt on upgrade for when this one throws the exhaust wheel down the street after going max boost... just saying...

            "Limp mode" what I'm hearing is more fuel to accommodate all the extra wooshes... thanks fiat! Haha.

              Secondly, sucks to be you.

              If you want any dealer information on this piece of shit, let me know. I have the pleasure of bending people over for owning these on a daily basis.

              There are fuck all of them around. They were bought in by Ateco when they were the distributor because FCA took over and axed it for our market.
              So you’re saying this was a good buy?

                  my primary schoolprincipal had a 105tc the same as the pic. he had to start it after the school day, and let it idle for 10 mins or the twin webers it had woud flood it. but once going boy did it sound amazing. boooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrttttttttttttttt tttttttttttttttttttt! it was all rust and gaffa tape at this point....
                  Mate of a mate purchased one of these from NZ and imported to Australia about 11 years ago... Not long after he lost interest in it completely for personal reasons and has done fuck all with it. It's in great shape, needs minor stuff for compliance etc.. he simultaneously has zero interest in keeping it, but too much into it (emotionally) to let it go .. I'm secretly hoping he'll sell it to me, or at least let me help him get it registered... The borts need to be released.

                  you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.

                        This feels like the sort of activity that should be going on in a basement and involve a lot of latex.

                          If I don't go camping this weekend we might need to organise some shed time to see what is in the realms of the possible. We also need a heat gun a.sheet of Perspex and some Sikaflex to be get it to "lock up stage"

                              So, td04l seem to be a common upgrade for these along with some 1990s style sensor benders
