    Red Punto GT 300BHP

    Not sure how I am doing this but here goes.

    I’ve owned the car for the past 3 years and it has been the best car I’ve owned, it’s been very reliable and never let me down starts first time every time and drives like a dream. This is not your normal Punto GT, I have built this car from the ground up spending thousands on it to get it to where it is now. It is currently the MOST POWERFUL 1.4 Punto GT in the country with Dyno print out to prove. it made 303bhp with 246ftlb of torque at only 23PSI, could make more with a bit more boost as the fuel pump was dying on the day ( Now has a new one) it really is a little beast to drive and always puts a smile on your face.

    Please note: THIS HAS NOT BEEN BODGED TOGETHER BY A COMPANY, IT HAS BEEN BUILT FROM THE BOTTOM UP BY MYSELF PROPERLY.

    Here is the current spec on the car itself:

    Custom FCP PERFORMACE LIVE MAP
    Custom DR EVIL 2.5inch turbo back exhaust
    225LPH sytec fuel pump
    Bonalume (COPY)quick shift gear selector
    Magnacore 8.5mm competition spark plug leads
    Ngk BCPR7ETS spark plugs
    GT2860rs (disco potato turbo) mapped to 1.4/1.5 bar (23psi)
    Port and polished inlet manifold with a 70mm fiat coupe 20vt throttle body conversion and
    470cc injectors (AT 89% DUTY CYLE at only 3BAR)
    3inch AFM conversion
    2.25’ boost piping
    Big universal intercooler
    HKS ssqv2 dump valve
    Devils own alcohol and water (methanol) injection kit for added cooling 2 litre tank mounted by me in the boot of the car!! Comes with adjustable switch ect.
    Piper 285 ultimate road cam with piper adjustable Vernier pulley (adjusted by FCP)
    Ported and polished cylinder head with flushed valve guides (FROM PERFECT TOUCH), whoever done it did a lovely job on it, best head I have seen and the power its making proves it. (VERY BIG MONEY & TIME SPENT ON THIS HEAD, PHILG CAN BACK THIS UP)
    Standard exhaust manifold & Head Gasket, Clutch and gearbox with no issues!
    Forged bottom end (ALL BALANCED) running 81.5mm WOSSNER PISTONS & PEC con rods!

    CHASIS SPEC:

    Spax gas springs and shocks lowered 30mm all round so sits nicely and handles ok.
    Powerflex lower arm bushes
    Had two new rear swing arm bush kits recently, and brake lines to rear callipers.

    BODY:

    I am going to be as honest as possible here. Keeping in mind I didn’t build this car to look good it was built to go fast full stop.
    The body work is tatty, it has lacquer peel on the bonnet, both front wings, drivers door, passenger door, front bumper, not terrible but still noticeable. On the upside the bonnet has a direct feed air vent cut into it.
    Comes with a sprayed black set of rare morette headlights (very hard to get hold of a good set anymore)!!!
    Tinted rear lights.

    INTERIOR SPEC:

    Fiat coupe 20vt front leather seats good condition.
    Standard rear cloth seats and door cards
    Nomad twin pillar pod gauge holder currently with a prosport electronic boost and voltage combination gauge and a prosport AFR guage both working.
    Cd player with jvc 6x9s in the custom made parcel shelf!!
    Electric windows and mirrors
    Central locking but on the key
    Right now onto the bad points of the car
    Needs new suspension all round as I’m pretty sure the shocks are gone, needs new top mounting bushes, lower anti roll bar bushes 2 drive shafts (which I have waiting to go on)
    Body is tatty like I said. Quite a few pint dents and one scratch on the passenger side rear quarter. Whole car could do with a spray. Not necessary but would look nice. I Have had the underneath treated (A LOT OF TIME AND EFFORT GONE INTO IT) Could do with another coat of under seal now.

    TAXED UNTIL (mid next year will confirm)
    MOT UNTIL late next year (will confirm)

    PRICE IS 3000 OVNO – or I will break it, simples.

    Anyone expecting to come and view a car with nice body work don’t waste your time stay at home and look for another GT. Anyone wanting a solid power engine come and view this car you will not be disappointed.
    NO TIME WASTERS, I have been as honest in the write-up. Don’t try and bump down the price giving me stupid excuses about parts ect you’ve either got the money or you don’t, do not waste my time, thanks.

    PX WELCOME! what have you got?
