The Fiat brand was reintroduced to the North American market in Italian Renaissance fashion with the 2011 Fiat 500. Fiat had been absent from North America for 27 years and the retro-inspired Fiat 500 was immediately popular for its Italian styling and fuel efficiency. As quickly as the Fiat 500 was leaving dealership lots, the standard Fiat 500 engine rated at just 101 horsepower left much to be desired in the performance department. With that in mind, Fiat decided to spice things up with the Fiat 500 Abarth 1.4-Liter Turbo. The Abarth models have an upgraded suspension, steering, interior, and last but not least, a snappy 1.4L Multiair turbo engine. Even though the 1.4L Multiair turbo engine is pretty responsive, 2013 and 2014 Fiat 500 Abarth owners are still searching for a boost in power.

Owners of 2013 and 2014 Fiat 500 Abarth 1.4L turbo models searching for a little more get up and go should look no further than a K&N performance air intake upgrade. K&N engineers decided to free up horsepower for 2013-2014 Fiat 500 Abarth owners by reducing restriction and turbulent airflow, while also maximizing the amount of air available to the 1.4L Multiair turbo engine. Boosting performance of the 2013 and 2014 Fiat 500 Abarth 1.4L turbo is accomplished by replacing restrictive factory intake tract components with a free-flowing molded high-density polyethylene (HDPE) air intake tube and an oversized open K&N high-flow air filter element. More air and less restriction means more usable power throughout the engine’s RPM range by allowing the 1.4L Multiair turbo to work more efficiently.

The K&N air intake for 2013-2014 Fiat 500 Abarth 1.4L turbo models incorporates an application specific air filter heat shield which surrounds the K&N air filter to help prevent engine heat from entering the K&N intake system. Additionally, the K&N Fiat 500 Abarth intake 63-1700 includes a separate roto-molded air intake tube which ties the factory fresh air scoop into the Fiat 500 Abarth K&N intake system. This helps to keep inlet air temperature (IAT) readings within factory specifications as well as promoting more efficient combustion.
