    Any Abarth AUTOMATIC with RRM ECU?

    Hi All,

    2-week old new Abarth Automatic owner here. Well here's where I stand. NO intention of modding car.

    As with our previous cars, got the Abarth sight unseen, over the phone. Never test drove one. Did not realize how LOUD the stock exhaust was. Not that it sounds bad, love it. Just me, but cannot be driving a car THAT loud without some serious HP. hahahaha. That's why I am very tempted to do the RRM ECU. Been reading up on the forums, and looks like RRM is the way to go for ME.


    I know I can save a little buying a used one, but it is worth it to me to pay a little more for peace of mind and local support, direct from the tuner, who seem to get high grades from many.

    With ECU ONLY, what real world hp & tq gains am I expecting? Most forum people have numbers but that's with other go fast bits. I've read the numbers, would appreciate comments. THANKS.

    From everything that I've read, do an intake and exhaust mod first. This engine is slightly restricted on intake, and the '15 exhaust actually pinches from 2 1/4" down to 2" right before the exhaust split (which also doesn't seem very flow happy based on the angle that I see).

    I would suggest putting money first on a good CAI (cold air intake) system, like the Eurocompulsion V4. You will see that car, even stock, will breathe better. If you buy an ECU, you will want a better intake for sure to take advantage of the extra power. I too, originally vowed not to mod my new Abarth, that vow only lasted about 2 weeks, lol. The rest is history.

    Call the guys at RRM and ask questions. they are happy to help. I have their sway bar and front chassis braces and they have always replied to emails and all. I'm thinking of getting their air intake, heat shield, and ecm. you have to remove the air intake to install ecm anyways so might as well swap it at that time.

    Thanks for the posts guys! I'd recommend an intake with the Ultimate ECU as well. It's with those two parts that people are getting from 160hp to 250hp. The intake helps open up the engine quite a bit. And you'll still be able to go back to stock if you wish!

    We have a package for both products

    I don't know how it compares, because I have only done it this way. I think the Ultimate or RRM TUNER was my first engine related mod after a high flow panel filter. I retained the stock air filter assembly with minor mods to it, and possibly one more planned. I have added a mouse screen at the front intake duct, as well as HPSI's Si intake hose from there to the airbox. I have the RRM ULTIMATE, MPx throttle body, and GFB DV+ and a few other goodies. I am more than pleased with the RRM parts combo sans aftermarket intake, though I realize there will be more power on tap should I venture there. I also have a strong hunch a resonator in the mid pipe helped on the top end. I use RRM's pulley kit as well.

    I feel more comfortable with the stock intake and a high flow panel filter as opposed to changing out the intake system. Nothing against the aftermarket units available. Reasons are more related to my intended main use of the vehicle.
    I missed a dyno day last Sunday in a local suburb sadly that I had wanted to attend, so I don't have any numbers to share myself.

    Rob and his staff have been great to work with in answering questions and filling orders. You can't go wrong in my estimation, by choosing their products.
    Oh, nearing 7,000 miles with no problems, no oil consumption, and surprisingly no tickets, lol. Ultimate on for most of that mileage. I've focused on the engine bay here but am also well pleased with the RRM chassis related components.
