    Very much enjoying this series - great production values and lots of excitement for this car... I've been considering an Abarth 124 for our next vehicle. This could still be several years down the road (as all of our great cars are holding up well). I get the 124/Miata...I really do. Just the same I'm a power junkie and I want a bit more. It doesn't have to be 400HP (per se) and I don't need to go e85 fuel or what have you. A good 300ish HP with maybe some slight handling & traction tweeks and I'm good to go with this...so I'll be following and perhaps (at some point down the road) looking for suggestions for getting to what I might want for this car. I do agree though - that manifold seems in need of upgrading...

    In this video we install a 3" 200 cell catted down pipe. This thing sounds like a damn rally car?!

    The 500's downpipe is way easier to install

    Another nice vid,
    What is the outlet diameter of the factory down pipe ? Is it reduced down like the Abarth was ? If I remember 1.75-2". And the out let diameter of the DP from Tork ?
    Also Goodwin Racing had said in one of their posts the cross pipe was a small diameter and they gained something like 11whp from a redesigned cross pipe. Any thoughts on the cross pipe.
    Just wondering how much can be freed up from opening up the exhaust on one of these.
    I checked with 2 dealers on a 2017 and 2018 Classica's but the numbers are not working out and I will not pay too much for another FIAT, so it may be later rather than sooner for me.

    The cross pipe is a massive restriction. I'm not surprised that Goodwin made that type of power from it. That pipe is being replaced soon. I will measure the outlet of the downpipe when I get the chance but I believe the flange was 2.25". The Tork downpipe is 2.5" out.

    You did say in the video that Tork was 2 1/2" out. I guess I need to work on my listening skills...?
