'98 Fiat Marea 2000 20V Turbo

The story of '98 Fiat Marea 2000 20V Turbo

I bought this car as gift for my birthday. The day was
11.12.2009 and I even got late for my party that night but I was so happy.
Since that day I spent many hours on improving handling and rebuilding the engine and gearbox.
Here is the look of the car when I bought it.

All the red sticker decals, turbo sighns and the pink radio antenna were removed on the next day.

Somewhere in the 2010 Engine and gearbox were fully rebuilded. I used only original OEM parts due to the low quality of the after market "tuning" parts.
New OEM clutch was installed along with new hydraulic cylinder . 

Some head work was done.

NGK BKR7EIX iridium spark plugs were installed

26.03.2011 Update: New hardware installed :)
Set of KONI Sport
Front 8741-1393SPORT
Rear 8240-1138SPORT

Set of 17" Momo Thunder with Federal 205/40 17" tires.

15.09.2011 Update: 
New turbo Garrett GT2560 aka GT28R with new 3" down pipe. 
Set of new Vogtland sport springs
Walbro 255 l/h High pressure fuel pump with wiring mod.

29.09.2011 Update:
Installed AEM TRU Boost controller

10.10.2011 Update:
I finally got the car properly mapped. You can see the results - 260 whp with 290 Nm torque. Please note that these results are at 1.1 bar. As result the throttle is more responsive and the turbo lag is minimal compared to the stock turbo TB2810

01.03.2012 Update:
Improving the handling...
I purchased 4 pot brembos a long time ago but never got time to mount them.
I'm currently producing mounting brackets to fit on Marea uprights.

New Mtec 305 mm brake disks

and new Q2 Limited Slip Differential

All these goodies will be fitted till the end of the month.
Hope for a good weather to smoke the tires :)
