We have a comprehensive database of all the latest and greatest modifications to your car.
Available in standard form with power of upto 131bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the Punto. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 144.1bhp to 222.7bhp with modifications varying from a few DIY mods to some pretty major engine work. The higher you go the more unreliable the car will be and you should expect to have to rebuild the engine regularly if you want to extract silly power. A big forced induction upgrade would be needed to push beyond the 100bhp per 1000cc limit.
The more powerful Punto Hatchbacks provide a suitable donor engine for the lower powered models in the range. The more powerful Puntos respond well to tuning mods. Car Tuning Guide have been impressed with the addition of stainless steel exhaust systems on the Puntos , if you want to improve your top end go with an air induction filter. You should also get a better fuel pressure regulator such as those supplied by FSE
The Car Tuning Guide recommend that on the Puntos , you get a fast road cam. Getting better flow through the head of the engine would reward your Punto with more power. So get the engine head polished and ported.
The Puntos come in various power levels right up to 131bhp as per the Punto Hatchback If you apply a few tuning mods to this model of Punto you will see power gains from anywhere between 144.1bhp to 222.7bhp. But this sort of power requires some pretty heavy investment and a hell of a lot of engine work. . The Puntos handling can be dramatically improved with some choice suspension modifications. Although lowering improves handling you should stick to a drop of 35mm.
