    Never fails, rims and springs do WONDERS!!!

    This car is really coming together in a short amount of time, love the black accents you did around the headlight cup too, really sets it off!!!

    Nope, they just went CHEAP on the battery. Mazda uses lighter sealed AGM, costs a bit more, saves about 13 pounds. Fiat went flooded lead acid, not even maintenance free (seriously, when was the last time you saw maintenance required battery outside of a truck?).

    Dropped over 52 pounds of weight today from our Fiat 124!

    Seriously, that is HALF the amount the Fiat is heavier than the ND Miata...gone in ONE DAY.

    Did it with just our front two-piece brake rotors, caliper conversion, and light weight battery kit.

    Car now rides BETTER than stock thanks to big cut in unpsrung weight, and stops better thanks to four piston calipers, and handles better (front end response to all inputs and road imperfections is better). Will get to the rear brakes soon, this was enough for one day!

    STOCK PARTS on scale. Stock front brake rotors, stock front calipers, and MASSIVE LEAD ACID MAINTENANCE REQUIRED BATTERY (seriously, who does not use maintenance free batteries these days?).


    Replacement Light Parts. Good-Win Racing Four Piston Caliper Conversion, Good-Win Racing Ultra Light Two-Piece Brake Rotors, Good-Win Racing Light Battery Kit.

    Great thread, Brian! Onward to the exhaust! I'm curious if you can get by with just a turndown pipe, as in No Muffler At All. Would be fun to hear what it sounds like. And you could still sell the mid pipe with the Helmholz resonator, I'm sure!

    Unusual battery, even the Fiat Panda, that costs less than half the price uses maintenance free batteries.
    Usually the use in last models, at least in Europe, were more of the models use start&stop technology, enhanced flooded batteries sourced by Exide.

    Is the roof of Fiat 124 heavier than Mazda MX-5 or is it the same?

    I believe there were reports of more sound insulation in the 124's roof, so I'm guessing a bit heavier, but probably not by much.

    Interesting comparison two stock exhausts for 124, the quad tip is Abarth version and very loud, the single tip version otherwise looks similar but is so quiet we cannot hear it. Tried the car without muffler and result is not good, like old military 4 cylinder diesel drone, even the Abarth gives a bit too much of that drone, I know we can do better.



    The dual tip standard exhaust is where they saved a lot of money, didn't even bother with fake tips or polishing the pipe. Yes, will be looking at doing better here.



    Finding lots of little differences between ND and Fiat versions, like this silicon high temp hanger for the midpipe:

    Damn that is a decent amount of weight savings. Reading these post makes me give that itch of trading my Abarth.
