Of course. We are working on that, and other things. In fact every single product we make for the 500 Abarth we are developing for the 124.

Here is our 500 Abarth intercooler. The 124 setup we are working on is similar but different.

Nice. I'm curious to see how hard it will be to attach the hot and cold side pipes up to their respective places. That hotside pipe looks like it will be a pita to do and I haven't dropped the shroud to see how it will be for the cold side. Have a feeling that this intercooler will look great in the front!

Installation is actually pretty easy. The most difficult part is dealing with the connection at the throttle body. I don't know why Fiat decided to put that underneath the intake manifold, but they did. We will have good instructions with pictures, and I have done it myself a few times so I have some tips I can share.

Greg,

P.S. The 124 intercooler is not the same unit we use in the 500 Abarth, but it's similar, and it does look great behind the grill.

Very much looking forward to an upgraded intercooler, and silicone intercooler pipes from EC.

How much do these engines benefit from an aftermarket intercooler?

On a stock engine, a bigger intercooler won't do a lot. The stock intercooler is already pretty big, and can easily handle the amount of heat from stock levels of turbo output.

On a modded car, a bigger intercooler along with less restrictive piping can be a big help, especially on really hot days or during times of severe use. I'll have a lot more details on this when the time comes.

I wouldn't be surprised if the OEM cooling setup is similar to other Fiat models and being just as restrictive. Its one of the many ways they get away with cutting cost

It's probably fine for the stock tune. Once you start raising the boost it's probably best to upgrade.
