Fiat 127 P-twin 525cc _02.wmv
Radical repair of a Fiat 127 engine. When big-end bearing seized I removed
the belonging piston and it´s opposing brother. Instead of a 1050cc 4-cyl
I now have a nice 523cc P-twin with 180 degree crankshaft. (two opposing
pistons for best balance). Probably around 25hp left from the engine. The
Fiat flats out at about 80 km/h. Questions are how long the engine will
last and how big the reduction in fuel consumption will be.

FIAT/Autobianchi engine rebuild
You can find many videos on Youtube about finished engines and their
starting attempts. But how should rebuild and assemble properly a
850/903/956 ccm FIAT/Autobianchi/SEAT block? We show it here! (Of course
there are slight differences between the engines mentioned above, but
basically can be considered as the same.)

Fiat 127 2,0 16V Turbo - First time on track - Drag race (Project Luigi)
First time on track, where we find some bugs, which we must fix before
race... One of bugs was poor turboBoost, only 0,5bar, but even though
time on 1/4mile was 12,5 sec.
Prvykrat na trati, kde sme zistili niekolko "múch", ktore musime opravit
pred pretekmi...Jedna z najvaznejsich bol slaby tlak turba, iba 0,5baru,
ale aj napriek tomu, cas na 1/4mile (400m) bol 12,5sekundy.
