We have been working in secret for months now on a totally new way to control the 1.4 liter engine. Our results are quite amazing. We have had a few people compare so far and we will be on the dyno again shortly. We are putting finishing touches on a fully concerted package. It is the fastest we have ever seen an Abarth go. Really handling the boost well and we feel we have brought this engine to the safest fastest level it can be at. We may enlist a Beta helper soon but we have a few more tests to do right now, including on other turbo family of cars. This unit blows away everything to date. It will not be for everyone, I guess but we will start posting some videos this week. Sorry for the vagueness but I will say that we have the engine HOLDING boost now. Anyone with any other setup know boost tapers away. Our car does not.

I can say, I am excited. Really! I stopped driving the car but now I want to keep driving it and driving it. It is busting out and going fast and making a bigger BOV sound, like 3 times as loud as it used to be! Maybe that gives a clue.

Ok. We are running about 19-24 psi of boost now. Seems to be working great. That is on 91 octane. Should run even better on 93. We are putting some of this through tests now. Again not a hiccup yet.

It is not awful news. The new stuff is not ready yet. We want to do more testing still. Our Current ECM is still the BEST out there bar none. Also the new box will likely be at a a different price point too. We are not sure where all the costs land yet.

Make sure you follow the ECU reset procedure after you make the change so the car can re-adapt to the new piggy back module.

I have 2 possible testers but it really does not need much. It is dynoing this week. Maybe today I will have something to go with. Our Current setup is the highest WHP to date that I am aware of. We are competing with ourselves but it will be a big difference.
More info soon.

This is a whole different setup. We will be testing this next week at the SILVER STATE CHALLENGE. For people that do not know what that is, it is a NO SPEED LIMIT race in NEVADA. The race is 100 miles long and they do have some classes so we are running in the 120 mph class. That is just a little below the SPEED LIMITER on our ECUs. This is going to be quite a test and the few little hurdles we had last couple weeks are all solved now so we just need to get back to the dyno this week, then tidy up some more things and off to Vegas with it! We are still not sure when this will come out but, boohoo, we still have the best ECM currently on the market for the Abarth. So you are not without a ROCK solid ECM from us right now. It is tried and true and currently in stock. Thanks

Hey RedRed, I called it that after reading Five-O post (#61) and took the powerpack word and translated it to Italian to keep the word theme going. Nothing official just my own take.

Those should be coming within the next week. We literally just sent out the boxes and they should be arriving to their destinations this next-approaching week. We figure they'll need to set aside install time, let their ecu's learn the new rrm control module, then rip into it and have time to post their thoughts. thankfully all 3 testers have tracking numbers so it's only a matter of time.

Agreed. He's only got two videos on his channel regarding the Abarth, and in the second one you see all sorts of goodies being installed, but then the focus quickly shifts to the 500L. R/R, if you feel comfortable doing so and have the opportunity, you should let Jay know fellow Abarth owners would love a video of the trial and more of his Abarth on his Youtube channel. :)
