Today we released Euro+Drive Lite for the Fiat 124. I am very excited about this product. It's high quality hardware from an OEM supplier in Italy. My team and I have spent 6 months developing this for the 1.4 liter turbo. It's been through many thousands of miles, including running at Fiat on the Dragon, and various motorsports events. We also put it through 1000 miles on the 124 itself.

The price of the unit is reasonable, and for those of you who don't think 200hp is enough, there is a self tuning option to get even more power, or take advantage of further mods.

It gives a very honest 200 flywheel horsepower. I am being very conservative when saying that because the actual number on the dyno chart for the Dynamic map is 197 horsepower at the wheels. We use Auterra Dyno software to measure this, which reads a little higher than a stationary rolling road dyno. This isn't because it's less accurate, it's not, it reads higher because you get 80mph of air through the intercooler, through the radiator, and into the intake system, far more than you get from a typical dyno shop fan. Airflow through the intercooler is a big deal, especially since we have been testing on 95+F days. As an example, the stock number on the Dynojet was 133, on Auterra 149.

I'll post more technical info on dyno testing of this car very soon. The short version is that as we saw in VW's "Diesel Gate" saga, this car knows when it's on a dyno, and accurate results when you exceed the stock boost levels just won't happen because the ECU pulls the power back.

In short it has 200 horsepower, and makes the car a lot of fun to drive. It's safe because we used conservative parameters, and we have been tuning these engines for years. The product is removable and leaves no traces behind. Nobody will know you had this on your car once it's removed. It can be transferred to another 124, or with a map change to any other Fiat 1.4 turbo.

Please watch our video and check out our page for more information on this product.

Oh, and I know Car and Driver said " Unlike the Miata, which is good to the last rev, the Fiat's final 1000 rpm before its 6500-rpm redline isn't worth exploring."

We fixed that, with either of our tunes it pulls hard to redline.

I also want to add, that the Dynamic map will work just fine on an otherwise totally stock vehicle. The Race map however requires spark plugs one heat range colder and a performance air filter or intake system. We did test it on a stock engine, and those power numbers we show for it are for a stock engine, but that's not the way we suggest it should be run.

Awesome
Can you upgrade the tune to race, after
Yes, but you would have to either send it back to us for the reflash, or buy the handheld programing module which would allow you to turn it up or down from Dynamic to Race at will. It would also allow you to self tune for higher power, or levels in between.

Canceled my order!
First they said it was in stock and would ship in two days, then it wasn't in stock and maybe in by the end of the week maybe ship sometime after that!
Not a good start.

Hi Dhuntr41,

I'm sorry, but we are sold out. I'm not sure if that's a good start or not, but we miscalculated the demand, no question about that.

Just curious on why you cancelled your order? Do you have an alternative to a tuning solution at the moment and wouldn't cancelling the order regardless of what you do delay your car getting a tune even more than EC running out of stock temporarily?

PS. not starting a debate, just curious on the thought process behind it

Any idea when you'll have it back in stock? Are you taking back-orders? Thanks.

Felt a bit misled by a salesperson, planning on doing a good bit of Mods.
Just didn't need to start that way and yes there are other options.
Not reflecting on Greg, he has been more than helpful.

P.S. No debate started

Can't wait to see your review of it on a manual car and how it compares to the Miata with the header and full exhaust.
I would like to see that as well. In fact for the enthusiast community I think it would be great to see a video comparison of Good-Win's 190+ WHP Miata/MX5 and a 124 with EDL. I think they will will be pretty darn close to each other in a drag race assuming both are manuals, or both automatics.

I understand where you're coming from. I look forward to seeing the mods that you have planned.

with this unit can you select it bypass the system and be in OEM mode or must you uninstall it to for that?
