I've not had it tested and I don't know the exact specs of the turbo, so I'd guess probably around 280-290 BHP, but could possibly be as low as 270 or as high as 300.

Can't seem to attach pics to a PM so in response to some questions, here are some more pics.

Close ups of rear wheel arches and both sides of boot floor. Nearside boot is fine, offside boot has had 2 corrosion spots treated, filled and painted.

Last pic is the letter from "Forza Italia" detailing work down back in 2008. That's all the info I have on the manifold and turbo.

The exhaust was originally a complete custom stainless system including a cat, all welded together in one piece! When it failed MOT on emissions a few years back it turned out to be the cat which was actually a tiny custom sports cat in the downpipe itself! Never seen anything like that, I actually thought the cat was just an expansion box in the custom downpipe and the big centre expansion box was the cat... but actually the small box in the downpipe was really the cat and the big centre box was just a silencer!

So to fit a new cat I had to basically drop the entire exhaust and chop it in half, replacing the entire front section to allow fitting a new cat (BM catalyst part, not original Fiat) and new downpipe and just leaving the "cat back" custom stainless section. So it now has a new downpipe and new cat, with a joiner from there onto the Owen developments custom stainless rear section, which just has one silencer at the back now. It does sound amazing though. smile

^^ That was done dry, with all plugs out and not touching the throttle.

And a shot of another plug with the oil (or is it carbon?) fouling around the base. Hasn't affected running or emissions but if you were intending to do high miles or keep the car long term this would very likely need addressed at some point. I've only been doing about 1K miles per year and it hasn't affected anything or got any worse (actually has got slightly better if anything) so I've been ignoring it. I think this issue is reflected in the price but feel free to make an offer. Will fit a new set of plugs now anyway.
