    That looks like a nice clean standard car you've got there.

    Before you do anything else make sure you get the wheels checked, the standard speedlines are known for being a little soft and they do buckle very easily.

    With brakes upgrade they will be replaced anyway.

    Right now,
    - mainfold and downpipe is ceramic coated to keep heat away from engine bay
    - Bosst gauge, afr gauge and extra oil pressure gauge is "installed" into the car
    - exhaust will be replaced from downpipe to rear end silencer, rear end box will have variable back pressure for low and high rpm range (have anyone tested such solution ?)
    - and still waiting for CNC company to make brackets for brembo calipers for me


    /end of the news for my bella

    Good luck with the fitting of the calipers, are the wheels 16" or 17"?

    That looks nicely made and well fitted. 3" all the way through?

    2,65", it have variable backpressure system, on low revs only one of two backpipes working, on high revs all (two) of them
    it's much more quiet than previous (on first photo) and turbo spools up quicker (2600rpm, instead of 3100), also giving more boost (1,4 instead of 1,2) (i'm fighting with this now with some tuner specialists)

    That sounds like a good system, I assume it works fully automatically? Must work if you are getting boost pressure at lower revs, and more pressure overall.

    Looks like you had a lot of room for the brakes with those wheels. What size disks are they?

    This is standard setup,
    alfa 166 calipers, and fiat coupe 305mm brembo oro discs
    bigger disks 310mm are only in 5x98 pcd setup, so bigger disks = custom made or redrilled disks.

    I think 16" wheels are hard to find to fit properly, and with acceptable "look" for me (i know, gustibus non disputandum est )

    and one of main factor was a wheel weight, these ones are very light.

    <edit> i've added some photos </edit>
