    I ordered my MM boost control today. I cannot wait to get it installed and report back. My goal is to get 200hp, that will be a good round number for the Abarth with the weight. The next upgrade will be the cold air intake and the throttle upgrade.

    I went ahead and got the remote, figured it would be nice to play around with it.

    If you put any type of boost controller and get caught with it Fiat will void the warranty. Fiat insider told me earlier that they can not warranty any vehicle with an aftermarket electrical performance module. Especially the ones like Magneti Marellli unit which you can change the setting via your computer. They can't control it and therefore, someone will do something stupid with it. They don't have any control over them.
    The unit itself may have a warranty from Magneti Marelli. So IMO, I would not worry about the fuel system warranty if you are going to use the boost controller of any kind on your car. That's my 2 cents.

    I was writing about gas additives not the boost controller, I read the octane boosters can cause problems.

    That's what I suspected. Thanks for the inside info.

    Boost boxes DO NOT void the warranty. The deal is it will if it causes the failure of a warranted part. Dont go crazy with those settings though. 77% is the Venom stock so stick with that or its out of MMs hands. They do not recommend increasing that setting, so theres no need for the remote - and bear in mind you can change the setting under the hood anyway, remotes a gimmick! I paid for mine yesterday, MM make the standard ECU parts so Id say this is the safer bet. TMC is excellent in Europe for their engine and their gas...MM was "made for us"!

    Yes, I plan to run it on stock settings 99% of the time. I want to be able to change the tune when I hit the Dragon or maybe autocross. This is a factory track car right? TO be honest, I think I would enjoy the throttle mod even more than the boost box. I hate the lag in response. Has anyone tried it yet?

    Good advice. Since both units are "plug and play" you can always reset it back to the stock settings before you take it in to the dealer for servicing. I did that with my other car. It's always nice to have the extra HP under the hood when you need it. The stock Abarth is a little underpowered at 160 HP and 170 lbs. of torque. That said, I'm leaning toward the MM box as one of my first mods.
