    Pre Reflash vs Reflash Abarth Dyno Results

    Today I went and got a baseline of the car pre recall reflash. The car is a 2012 and these pulls were done completely stock with 93 octane gas on a AWD DynoJet dyno. I have video of all three pulls but currently I don't have them uploaded. When I get them uploaded I will update this thread.

    Look forward to seeing the difference post reflash....

    BUT just wait till the miserables wake up today and go after you with the 170+ stock figures....hope youve got a thick skin as the graphophiles dont pull any punches in their relentless assaults!!!

    You may mean the difference between a lot of people getting or not getting the reflash done.

    I like that assaults comment. This place has been very civilized as far as an open car forum goes, excluding the mocking done by many in the burnouts thread. I already saw this thread last night and while I think the numbers are high, I'm going to ignore them and just look at changes in the graphs. Oh, I do love though how in every single thread involving a dyno you manage to complain about us when we discuss numbers.

    Hee hee US and WE!!! Oh and DISCUSS?!

    The irony! Anyways I hope this thread can clear up some of the mystery around the reflash as so far its been mixed but seems very little change either way. I like the violent power spikes, its the reason I bought an Abarth-smooth and steady aint what these cars are historically about!

    I don't suppose there is any way that Fiat would have included any dyno info to clearly define the relflash requirement? For an everyday car I could understand that they just tell the owners to come in for service XYZ, but with the enthusiast market of the typical Abarth owner, this would have been a great chance to just say "hey gang, we need to tweak your engine for X reason, which will result in typically Y amount of change in HP/Torque and give you bigger cup holders", or SOMETHING specific. Just a thought.

    I just had the reflash done. I notice a difference. More power. Now, it is not a huge difference and how much may be the placebo effect, I can't say. But I'm glad I had it done.

    I could care less about what others think. If I did my car wouldn't have hit 1000 miles on the race track!

    Exactly, numbers are numbers.

    They could be high but I don't think they are far off. A stock 2011 C6 Z06 dyno'd right after me and put down 467whp and 432wtq.
