How hard was it to fit? and what sensors did you need to buy?
I just started looking into buying the ecu this week think i will give them a call soon.

It was all quite straight forward really, firstly I read the installation manual to the death. It takes you through a 'step by step' guide which I must say is really good.

Here it is;)

http://omextechnology.com/600%20ECU%20Installation%20Manual%202v01.pdf

The only things I needed to buy were an ATS, TPS (because the standard one is not a potentiometer) MAP sensor and Lambda/wide band, a tacho drive from Omex, the injectors and a coil pack.  The rest of the standard kit you can use:)

The hardest part was working out how to make the trigger wheel work, but if you look back in the thread you can see how ive done it.

The Omex is great though because it has so many additional auxiliary ports that im able to run both fans at separate temps and the injector cooling fan:)

All it takes is a bit of patience and your there:)

If you are at Auto Italia on Saturday, you can have a nose around;)

79bhp isn't much after all the work you've done?! Wink

I don't suppose you have any close up pics of how your fse attaches to the fuel rail?

Its just screwed into the fuel rail, you need to bend the bracket slightly but not much:)

The fuel pipe connection to the rail or the body of the fse to the bracket? (I was interested in the former)

So my son and I went to Auto Italia at Brooklands a few weeks back and took the UT for its first public showing:) It was a nice day but tbh, its become very 'snobby' over the years since I last went 5 years ago and I feel its more a show for those driving cars with a 5-6 figure price tags rather than your average man. But I got the UT displayed on the Abarth stand so it wasn't all bad:)

The following day I drove to Windsor. My mate was over from the Algarve to help his son (Connor) fit a 1.9 engine to a 1.6 Pug GTi. I again drove the UT and once the engine had been fitted to the Pug we went for a relaxing Sunday drive with Connors mate joining us in his MK1 Golf cab:) All was going so well. Then the Golf, whilst in traffic started making a rather horrible engine noise:( Big ends:(( The Pug was over fuelling and yes, the UT had a problem too:( I had a split in the main Turbo hose:( It made quite an entertaining pic though,lol.

Once I got home I decided that I needed a main turbo hose that would stretch under pressure so a metal pipe would have to be fabricated. I had the OE turbo pipe in the shed so this would make the ideal donor.

Firstly I had to relocate the ATS as this was where the old hose had split as im using a self sealing adaptor. I moved it further down toward the intercooler where the hose wouldnt stretch and plus, it looks tidier there:)

I cut the pipe as I wanted it and sat it in place to make sure it would flow well. It was then welded:) That brings us up to date, Ive ground the welds and tomorrow ill be smoothing it off and painting it:)

Cheers:) That one is down to my son, he has a very good eye for a photo.

So I finally finished the pipe after much rubbing down and wet and dry







The next job was to improve the lighting. Fiat during the 80s was clearly attempting to keep costs low and how they got away with not not having to improve the rear lights I do not know.

Basically im talking about the light mounts not having any reflective material for everything other than the fog lights?? So I stripped the lights down to the bare plastic and set to work with making the lamp holder reflective. I managed to find some metalic spray paint which provides an almost mirror finish. Lets just say it makes a massive difference.

I also replaced the incandecent indicator and brake bulbs with LEDs to get a much more positive response.

The lights as they were as standard and looking quite dark










You can certainly see the difference between the old and new:)

What a stunning build.

I like the idea of the 'resto mod'. I'd love to get a collection of all the hot-hatches from the 80s and give them this treatment.

Hi, Where did you get the omex ecu, loom and coil from? I cannot remember where you said at the retro show. I'm looking to buy it but don't know where to get it from.

Thanks Ben

What are your thoughts on the Avo coilovers mate? How do they ride? Im having a hard decision which to buy. Are yours set on the lowest setting at the front?

Hi Ben, I got it from a company called Atspeed.

The Avos are OK if a little hard. The front isnt at the lowest setting, to do that with the wheels ive got I would have tocut the arches.

Im going to be lowering it further but not down to the ground. Having looked at it in pics, it needs to be lower:)

I had an actuator issue when Atspeed had it which meant that it couldnt hold boost above 16psi and max'd at 163hp. Ive since changed it and the air supply. Although it looks like its running with the standard airbox, which personally I think looks alot better but restricts the airflow quite alot, the filter is bolted straight to the turbo with a custom air duct feeding it from under the car. The best part though is the sound when I come off throttle from the Turbo, it sounds like a jet:)

So its now making 203.4hp @5850rpm and 223ftlb. set at 20psi.

Whoop Whoop, happy days and all in time for the winter, never mind.

It's a little crazy Mark, lol The wheels don't light up like the standard Turbos do at low speed which is what I was after. It's the mid range torque that just scares the life out of me.

It's down side, is off the lights, you do notice that period of lag but once it's on boost it never dies so loose in one hand and win in the other.
