Modifying your Abarth can take it to a whole new level in performance. The possibilities now available for our brand are incredible with owners taking their cars to anything between 200-300+ BHP.
So with that in mind, today I caught up with fellow club admin Kurtis Misz to give me the low down on why he was at our club sponsor BTG Performance today in Newcastle and what his thoughts are on the modifying side of making your Abarth more insane.
Why were you at BTG Performance today then?
The visit to BTG Performance today was for a power test after an engine change in the summer due to a complication and also to get my tracking sorted out.
You’ve been one of the key members who have heavily modified their Abarth, what made you want to go that much more?
This is my second Abarth now and I always thought they were under powered and capable of so much more. So after speaking to a fair few people in the various Abarth groups out there such as Modified Abarth, Abarth Owners Club etc, I decided to take the plunge and give it a go.
How have you found BTG Performance so far and would you recommend them?
So far I have never had a problem with BTG Performance and get on well with everyone who works there. I would fully recommend them to do all sorts of work in peoples cars if they don’t know how to do it themselves. They don’t just cater for Abarth, they have a wide range of knowledge for multiple brands out there so if you’re thinking of having a service done, or going to the next level in upgrades and performance. This is the place to come to.
If someone was thinking of modifying their Abarth, what advice would you give?
My advice to people who might be thinking or planning on modifying their Abarth is to have a budget and a goal to achieve. Don’t be shy in asking other owners who have done the work to their own because there are a lot out there pushing crazy numbers. The experience and guidance really helped me achieving what I have now and I couldn’t be happier with it.
Finally, what are the next plans for your Abarth?
The next plan I have for the Abarth is to get my forged engine completed and to see how far I can go. Maybe some other surprise bits (once I decide on them) but for now I’m fine with what level it’s performing at.
