Disclaimer: There won't be any detailed pictures of the car. Last time I showed something ended up earning heavy money on my 126 related ideas by someone else
As some of you probably have seen on djvcodec site under this link there is a white Fiat 126p that become a little monster.
It just happens to be my car
What you haven't seen, there is lots and lots more custom built mods.
But before we move on to them let me bring up the board some data of stock one:
tremendous 24HP & 32Nm
4 speed gearbox
lack of suspension and a lot of bumpsteer in exchange
I got the engine by accident. It was meant to be scraped while renovation of my school. I literally dug it out from the pile of scrap metal with a plan to make a table out of it.
When I realised what gem I got immediately decided to save it and try to fire it up.
As it turned out it was in mint state with few minor and one major lacks - it's "cooling housing" was missing.
I managed to fire it up with the distributor taken from VW bug. It idled nicely and all. What is much more important I found a guy who had several citroens that this engine come from. He gave me all required parts to restore it to the factory spec.
I added one and two and crazy idea started to grow in my head. How about to swap it in Polski Fiat 126, what can go wrong! Well... shitload of things actually
Before I put it in the car the carburettor broke due to of membranes dissolve from petrol. It stood ca 20 years dry, so when it got some fuel no wonder it happened. Due to lack of parts to the carburettor (damn you solex) I decided to go EFI. The rest is a history.
The current setup was:
Last working setup of this madness on wheels was:
► 1300cc air-cooled flat four fed by set of ITBs with supercharger in addition and ability to switch the intake to N/A
►highly customised gearbox and whole transmission
►ECUTeen 3.5 revA with plans to update to the latest revision of Krzysztof's project
►custom suspension, steering system, brakes, everything. The last stock element of this car is the rear mirror.
Why I said 'was'? Because now the Fiat looks like that awaiting a spa in body shop. Unfortunately right wheel got bunny hopped that led to break of swingarm reinforcement. It literally got torn of the body due to snap of spot welds it was attached with.
Why I'm writing it so late some may ask. Answer is very simple - because I got stuck with the project.
I have some plans for future mods of this insanity and I need your help because those mods exceeds my knowledge.
