Can you buy a Fiat 500 turbo kit?

I have a 2018 Fiat 500. I love the car, but I do wish it had just a little more horsepower. I was thinking I might have a turbocharger installed, but I don’t even know if that’s possible in a 500. Is there a Fiat 500 turbo kit that you can buy?

Great question! Installing a turbocharger is certainly a great way to try and squeeze some more horsepower out of your car. To answer your question, yes—you can indeed install an aftermarket turbocharger in the 500, and there are some great
Fiat 500
turbo kits available.
If you want to install a turbo kit yourself, you can get the base turbo part for about $200 - $550 depending on the turbo you buy and the year your 500 was manufactured. If you’re willing to spend as much as $1,600-$1,800, you can have a professional install the turbo for you–which is the best way to ensure that there aren’t any complications.
Keep in mind that Fiat does make an already turbocharged version of the 500, the

It’s also important to remember that any aftermarket modifications like a turbocharge can significantly impact your

premiums. Luckily,
