Here's a neat way to increase the cooling on your Fiat X1/9, watch John
Edwards as he explains how he modifies the engine compartment lid vents to
allow additional air flow in and around the engine.

Midwest-Bayless #22 at PITT Race - SCCA H-Production 2012
Matt and the #22 Fiat X1/9 battling an H-Production competitor in sloppy
wet conditions at the Cumberland Classic SCCA event June, 2012. The view
from the cockpit is about the same as the view from the camera. The
clarity of the video cleans up as the track begins to dry out.
Unfortunately the video card ran out about 5 laps from the end. I wasn't
able to make the pass. For those unfamiliar with SCCA racing, the faster cars which are seen quickly passing
us are racing in different (faster) classes in our group. They typically
have 2-to-6 second faster times
and can lap us at a track this length about 1/2 way through.

Fiat X1/9 Gear Reduction Starter Motor
Fiat X1/9 Gear Reduction Starter Motor Comparison - Crank Speed
I've replaced the OE Marelli starter (not pictured in this video) with a
new Denso gear reduction starter from Csaba @ AutoRicambi. The benefits
are: smaller, lighter, able to clock its position relative to the engine,
approx 50 RPM faster crank speed,
less current draw, might prove to be more reliable than the Marelli
(however, my OE starter lasted 27 years, finally failed due to worn brushes
and commutator - the one pictured is my spare).
So far I'm happy with this unit, however, it certainly doesn't sound
"Italian"... It certainly sounds Japanese. It does roll the engine over
quickly, which is a bonus!
The car is my 1982 Fiat X1/9 (Fuel Injected - original paint!!) - with a
Faza 35-75 cam. Very lumpy at idle, but sounds great at WOT. In this
video, the engine hasn't been started in a while (a few days), and since
the valve seals leak a little.. you'll see it "puff the blues".
Thankfully, it only does this at start up. My cure? I have a Mk1 1.3L Uno
turbo engine in the garage that will
replace the 1.5L OE unit. Muffler is stock (Ansa), except for the Ansa
45mm resonated tips.
I've raced Fiat X1/9s (CASC-OR GT road racing) and have had many of these
from various model years. I've also owned Alfa Romeos. I've owned this car
since 1989, but I think it's time for a Ferrari... F355!
I love Italian cars :)
