ATM Fenderwell Ram Air Intake Kit Abarth/500T 2012+
THE INTAKE SOLUTION FOR YOUR FMIC'D ABARTH!
Ambient Thermal Management is proud to offer yet another proven solution for those running a FMIC on their Fiat 500 Abarth and Turbo. Instead of sucking hot air in from the engine bay you can push in cold air from the fenderwell!
DEVELOPMENT- Prior to laying out an intake design for the Fiat 500 Abarth, ATM data-logged filter location temperatures under many circumstances. We searched for the coolest location which remained cool under the most driving variables. Just like the cowl location, the fenderwell proves to be a great area to draw in cold air to your engine. This is the perfect solution for those running a front mount intercooler.
With the intake location moved to the passenger-side fenderwell, we then needed a conduit to flow the air. From past experience, we knew that multiple-ply silicone is superior to most other materials for its minimal thermal conductivity while remaining pliable. This means that it insulates from hot under hood temps while having some play for installation differences between cars and minimizing noises.
After choosing the best filter location and an optimal insulating duct, we now needed to optimize airflow. We developed a custom billet aluminum bellmouth for the filter to silicone connection. To complement this bellmouth, we had a custom filter manufactured to our specifications. This filter features maximum surface area and a laminar flow cone ensuring unrestricted performance.
The final result of all of this research and development is HORSEPOWER!!!!
Cleanable 8-Layer Cotton Media Filter w/water-repellant pre-filter Included
Multi-ply silicone piping isolates colder Air Inlet Temperatures (AIT's) from hot underhood air temperatures
Includes a complete windshield washer reservoir with a remote fill spout, compatible with the factory washer pump
Features a machined (factory-like clip in) EVAP fitting, boost solenoid return fitting, and PCV fitting with extension hose.
Quicker and better AIT recovery maintains a lower AIT overall.
Better flowing than the stock intake, resulting in faster turbo spooling and a higher torque curve.
Increases intake air density/WHP and decreases susceptibility to detonation.
