    Alex's Slow AutoX Build

    Well my introduction thread is a lie. I said I wasn't going to mod my Abarth, but here I am making a build thread.

    Car: 2015 Fiat 500 Abarth ~300 miles on it. Purchased in May 2015.

    Goals: Autocross and fun street car.

    Planned Mods: Initial I will be focusing on suspension and drivability. The car has plenty of power in my opinion, and honestly for my skill level the biggest improvement will be practice and track time. There are a few things I wanted to do pretty early in. The only thing I am missing is a new shift knob. Not a big fan of the OEM one, but the one I want is $180 so I was hoping to find a used one. Seems I missed out on two people selling them already.

    Short Term
    1. Shift Knob - Mostly for looks and feel. Not really happy with the OEM one.
    2. Rally Armor Mudflaps - Like the look, possibly provide a bit of protection.

    Medium Term
    1. Tires - After my current set bite the dust.

    Long Term
    1. Wheels/Tires - Looking for something a bit lighter and wider.
    2. Coilover or Springs/Shocks/Struts - Haven't quite decided. Will be reading lots of reviews when the time comes.

    Purchased Mods:

    1. GFB DV+ - From what I read on the forums this is a great upgrade to the stock diverter valve. I am hoping this makes driving much more enjoyable.
    2. 500 Madness Torsion Bar - Another big improvement to the car. I noticed the need for an upgrade pretty quickly when driving a bit more aggressively. Looking forward to installing this soon.

    Installed Mods:
    1. Locking Gas Cap - I have had my gas cap on two other cars stolen. Don't want it to happen again, especially with the Abarth gas lid inviting someone to easily open it.

    I'll add a bit more when i have time. My major goal is to have a fun street car that i can autox in my free time. My first part came in the mail today and wanted to start this thread.

    This is how you know you ordered from a good company (thanks eurocompulsion!):

    and now for the goods:
    good man!

    Agreed... These primates on this forum know what they're doing. GFB DV+ was the first mod I bought. Gotta keep the boost! And I'm not one to add a spoiler.

    The GFB DV+ was my first mod since I have only heard amazing things about it. I am not looking to add power at this point, just mods that will increase the drivability of the car. I don't really have any other plans for engine related mods.

    I did purchase a torsion bar and locking gas cap (I have a bad history of getting my gas caps stolen).

    Thinking I might go with Rally Armor Mud Flaps at some point, like the look a lot.

    My first real modification was just installed: GFB DV+

    Time to install: 30 minutes

    Difficulty: Easy (with right tools)

    Tips: The little piston sleeve broke coming out. Luckily this isn't a part you reuse, but be very careful anyways. I applied almost no pressure and the lip that borders the yellow seal broke off (See album below). This will be a problem if you ever revert to stock. Also if you can borrow a ball hex socket, this will make your life so easy (and these bolts are not tight enough to worry about stripping). They look like this: http://www.sears.com/craftsman-6-pc-...p-00942607000P

    First Impressions/Thoughts: In process.
