:lol:

Clever job making it look different whilst lifting every design element possible - rear end makes me think Mercedes rather than BMW, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Kia front, 'Vette sides, Benz rear. Probably works better in the flesh.
I'd really prefer the 124 Abarth without the tupperware.
'16 MG Club GWR SSQST (or Race TT), Versatune, RS Springs & Konis, Conti ECS, TRM FF10, MC update with AA & AIO, etc...
'97's SOLD...

Previous SCCA day with Hoosier 245/40/17 on 17x9. First time we ran that combo, quite a bit bigger than 245/40 Rivals we usually run on same wheels. These need SUBSTANTIAL fender roll PLUS our offset bushings.

Brian, what would be your response if a tuner suggested boost dump issues were caused by your sportcat? It's been recommended to me that I might want to remove it. I'm having a hard time seeing the correlation between the downpipe and boost dump. Running with no codes, BTW.

Time for a new Tuner. At this point more than 20 guys racing with the setup, these are the most serious users in the Fiat 124 community, and none report issues.

Hate computers sometimes, I broke the link when I added the picture, refresh the page and it should work now.

Customer car install of Eibach Springs and Sways. Only thing I don't like on the Eibach Sways are the limited adjustment choices, just 2 holes per bar end front and rear.
