    YouTube Build Series Abarth 124

    I'm starting a series on car building. We will be building one car a year starting with the A124. The first episode will be out in January. Here's the teaser video. Make sure you subscribe to follow the build.

    Very cool, what types of modifications do you have planned? (if you can spoil things for us) Based on your avatar I imagine you will delve quite a bit deeper into the car than your average bolt on modder.

    The first couple episodes are the supporting mods. We will progressively move through them until we get to dropping in the built engine. I wish this had started before putting the GT1752 in but I figure it's fine as that turbo will be replaced towards the end of the series.

    Watch this 124 go from mildly modded to a built engine, big turbo monster.

    I'm highly looking forward to this. While I haven't posted in quite some time I check in on occasion - specifically to check on anything in the modded category and wrt future Abarth 124s that possibly will get an engine/power upgrade of some kind. There really hasn't been much of interest in these areas this past year...but this - what you're doing - is what I've been looking for. I'm still interested in an Abarth 124 as a possible future vehicle for me...but I will want one with quite a bit more oomph than what Fiat is offering,,,so will be very interested in following your efforts here - thanks!

    Hey,
    So what are your overall thoughts on the 124 ?
    i.e. build quality, fit/finish, and most important how it responds to modifications. I have a 13 Abarth that I have had 48,000 trouble free miles on, 3 trips to the Tail of the Dragon, and just love the car.
    Any way, thinking about trading it for a 124 Classica as all the local Abarths are optioned up to the 35,000 mark. For that much I will get a Mustang GT. ( cant believe I spoke those words, lol)

    Any hoo, any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    T

    It's fit and finish is straight up Mazda. Which is a good thing. The whole car feels more together. The engine and ECU are the same as the Abarth 500 but it's made in Italy instead of Mexico. It responds to mods the same as the 500 Abarth except it has a mildly better OEM intercooler and the pipes are not the same funny leaky press fit of the turbo 500's. The gear shifter is amazing. I liked my 500 shift feel (I had the Cravenspeed 500 shifter) but the 124 makes that 500's shifter feel like you're moving a stick through a jar of peanut butter.
