Nice scoop Sid...
At last T-JET will hit the indian road.
Waiting for a detail review...
I am sure this will boost FIAT sales.

Wow thats good news Sid. It is going to be the first turbo charged petrol in low budget. I hope the price would be under 10 lakh. Later we can expect Punto T-Jet

With the changes that might come with the T-jet, 16 inchers, leather upholstry, may be a new gear box, I would speculate that it would be priced atleast 70-80K higher than the petrol emotion pack. 50K is ideal, but lets wait and see how FIAT prices this one.

Has FIAT turbo'd the 1.2 litre engine? If they bring it here then there can be a powerful & fuel efficient sporty hatch.

The picture is taken from an early T-Jet.

The turbo is an IHI. The only T-Jet that comes with a Garrett is the Abarth SS.

Tuning box is a no no on this engine. Only re-mapping is advisable. The block can take 400bhp, 360bhp has been done for endurance racing and some tuners offer packages up to 280bhp.

With the fitted turbo with air intake revision and re-map in excess of 150bhp can be achieved, with the turbo form the 150 T-Jet about 190bhp is possible and with the the SS turbo about 220bhp with induction revision is possible with 355Nm of torque (I have done all three).

The Brazilian version uses the slightly bigger IHI.

Being a performance tuner I doubt that the reduction in power has got anything to do with fuel quality. It looks more likely to be a FE issues.

The new T-Jets in Europe are 135bhp, but employ multi air technology. It looks like the T-Jet in India at the launch will be the twin cam version.

Sorry, for being slightly off topic!

AFAIK, in layman terms, MultiAir is the more advanced version of Variable Valve Timing , right?

i certainly do not expect it (MutiAir Turbo) to be on the Indian roads anytime soon.

Do you think that detuning the engine (Indian version) will have any affect on the car's performance? BTW, Have you driven the 120 bhp car in Europe? Do you think it is match for ANHC in terms of performance?

One thing keeps on worrying me: how will be the so called service centers handle such complicated technology (from Indian standards) while servicing the car? Attitude in general is below par, that tata days notwithstanding, in general, its going to be an uphill task for fiat to make this car succeed. GDI maintenance is not that easy as it is.

Unless you think there will be problems ! Isn't it all about replacing faulty components without much tuning to be done at that level?

1.4 T-Jet? I thought they should have 1.6 T-Jet. Is it not?
16 Inch Alloys seem to too good! First in the segment.
