    I am on the hunt for a Palio 1.6 GTX. I have come across a very well maintained 2006 model. My only concern is that it may use cheap Indian electronics and not the imported ones as in the 2000 - 2003 models.

    Can anyone please provide some input and confirm? Also what is the ECU used in the 2006 Palio GTX? Is it the Magneti Marelli one? Thanks in advance!

    They don't generally change ECU vendor. And GTX is special also because of Magnet Marelli components. Do confirm your doubts again though. I think it always came with one particular ECU and there were no revisions. Even if there were no Magnet Marelli ECUs the 1.6 engines packed enough juice in all the Fiat cars that had those. GTX has a special state of tune.

    PM @Italia-Linea to confirm doubts.

    Sure! Thanks for the input. I was stating this as I came across a team-bhp thread where a user expressed a similar concern.
