1.) The ported throttle body is listed on your site for both the turbo and non- turbo 1.4L, can I get verification that is correct? I'm just surprised the Abarth and Turbo engines use the same size TB as the NA engine.

2.) The underdrive pulley is list for the turbo 1.4L but not the non-turbo. Are these parts different and are you planning on making an UDP for the non turbo cars?

Thanks!

TB:

We have recently found out that the throttle body is not interchangeable.
We were under the impression it was earlier but have found it to not work on the non turbo cars.

In further testing, we have found that the NA throttle body can not be bored.

PULLEY:

We have only released a turbo model pulley initially. If we release a NA version we'll surely announce it here, no immediate plans for it though.

I was joking. But seriously, trading in is not an option. Tweaking my existing car is.

We have two turbo 1.4's, a Dart 1.4 and a Abarth, so all of our time and effort is put forth into the two turbo engines.
Sorry Felnus. We will still carry parts for the NA, but it wont be our specialty.

I understand that from a business standpoint, more enthusiasts that are likely to be interested in modifying their cars are probably going to buy turbo cars so it only makes sense to concentrate your efforts on that motor. So I do understand it, but I don't have to like it. :cool
