Fiat 500 turbo watercooled 8 valves engine, first run on standard
It took more than 9 years, but today my engine did his first run!
Only the crankshaft and housing are original. The other parts I use where:
-Carburetor from an Alfa Romeo 75
-Pistons from Toyota Celica turbo
-Cylinder sleeves, Alfa Romeo 33
-turbo Garret 15
-Cylinder head is from Alfa Romeo boxer engine.
-Inlet and outlet manifold self-made
-Water pump Suzuki GSR 1100
-Oil pump Suzuki GSR 1000
And a lot of parts are self made.
Enjoy the movie, Chris
Fiat 500 with Subaru engine
This is a Fiat 500 modified by ZCars Ltd to the specification of a customer
from Greece. The design brief was to fix his 500 in an interesting way so
that it would have more useable power to enable him to drive his family
around town in comfort. Whilst he was tempted to have the Suzuki Hayabusa
conversion ZCars also produce he decided that he wanted to keep the rear
seats. As that is where the 200bhp motorcycle would be installed that
option was ruled out!
The engine is an EA81 Subaru engine (1800cc flat 4) which is quite an old
engine although still widely used as an aviation engine we are told. This
engine was used due to its simplicity, power and torque characteristics and

clutch and drive shafts up rated. Also up-rated were the brakes with discs
all around and the suspension at the front. The transverse leaf spring was
removed and adjustable alloy dampers were used with coil springs. A new
front subframe was fitted to allow the use of wishbone suspension arms.
Obviously as it is a water cooled engine, radiators were required. This was
inserted into the front boot space (trunk) and water pipes run underneath
the car. A new stainless steel Exhaust
finished the conversion and new wheels and tyres were fitted as an optional

Se una farfalla battesse le ali in Italia, si scatenerebbe una tempesta in
Australia, agli antipodi. La metafora della teoria del caos, nel caso
dell'incredibile Fiat 500 Lamborghini protagonista della video-prova, calza

Oemmedi Meccanica, ha come simbolo proprio una farfalla. Che nel mondo
dell'auto - regno di tori, cavallini rampanti, leoni, giaguari e scorpioni
- sottolinea ancor di più quanto sia straordinario montare un motore V12
di 6.2 litri da 580 CV su una piccola 500 "storica". Provarla, come ho
avuto il privilegio di fare, è un'esperienza speciale, da ricordare. E
