Remap of Punto at FIAT

Discussion in 'Engine Compartment' started by Sat-Chit-ananda, Sep 22, 2011.

  1. Folks,

    Any one know if there is ECU software remap/version upgrade done by FIAT?
    Reason I asking this question is 2011 Punto seems to be more responsive than 2010 models,few people I spoke to told me that ECU software is is updated by FIAT in 2011 models.

  2. I called the dealer , he said no such thing is done as of now for MJD but for FIRE engine yes for addressing AC issue.

    IIRC, some amount of weight reduction has been achieved in Punto and Linea. This responsiveness could be due to that.

    AFAIK rear Roll bar is removed in 2011 punto's......think this might have reduced the weight to some extent

    I think the roll bar has been removed long time back or is not a part of Punto's rear suspension itself. i have a March 2010 GP and it does not have the roll bar. Pls pardon me for my limitted knowledge if what i have stated is wrong here.

    This is how the rear anti-roll bar looks like.

    From Wikipedia:
    A sway bar or anti-roll bar forms part of an automobile suspension. It connects opposite (left/right) wheels together through short lever arms linked by a torsion spring. A sway bar increases the suspension's roll stiffness—its resistance to roll in turns, independent of its spring rate in the vertical direction.
