  1. Yea it's got a Quaife in it. BW T5. No idea on the headers, but I'd like to run the full Kameari setup - 6-1, and race exhaust. Do you think they'll clear the comp pan?
  2. Good evening HybridZ. Last year I bought a stroker race car from Erik Bernstein in Los Angeles, CA. I flew out from TX and made the deal, and got to know him and his wife Jenny. Unfortunately Erik passed away this summer when in a motorcycle accident when a car came into his lane head on. I stayed in touch with him, but never got a full rundown of mods or who built the motor. I'm sure we discussed it, but I was in the process of moving at the time and it was on the back burner. I have begun to tear down for a refresh (chassis only, engine has 26 hours on it) and I'm hoping someone can at
  3. Absolutely. The engine defines the car.. I'm an L6/RB/2JZ guy. I like the NA stroked cars (like mine with triple weber 48s), the whoosh and blowoff valve noises (my old L28ET) and the smooth, balanced, surge of power that comes with the newer inline 6s under boost. I do not like V8s. Any of them in this car. My M5 has a wonderful V8 and it's a great fit for the car. I personally would never do the swap on an S30.
  4. I was in the same boat and pulled the trigger on TTT. This is now my spare bedroom... Full suspension, front and rear brakes with ebrake, kaaz 2 way. Go big or go home.

  6. Looks awesome! Thanks for coming out with new stuff!
  7. Thanks. I don't know if the pump has been replaced - very extensive PPI was done and it seems problem free but it's a Ferrari so who knows. I will be replacing the relay regularly.. The headers can easily be done at home - but not MY home - I live in a condo. The shop that does the work on my M5 is doing them this week. Rick
  8. That green Z is GORGEOUS. Wow. Rebello? Drivetrain specs?
  9. LOL. The car is ridiculously roomy on the inside and has a very wide and open cabin. I have subs behind the seats and am 6' tall... absolutely zero issues. It feels bigger (up front) than my E39 M5. And yes, a lot of people do buy these cars (among every other high end sports car) as status symbols - I am not one of them. I bought it because it's a mid engine, 5v cyl, 8500rpm, flat crank V8 that makes beautiful sounds. It has one of the prettiest aluminum bodies even penned and if produced by one of the winningest car manufacturers ever. I'm a car guy and I'm lucky to call this MY c
  10. Haven't joined FCA yet, but probably will. FerrariChat is an awesome forum and resource. I love this car and that flat crank V8... 8500RPM.. the sounds are incredible.
  11. The 360 responds well to N/A bolt ons. I mean it's not an SBC or what have you, but with headers and test pipes you can expect a 20-25hp gain. This is an early car and there were 8 different TCUs or so over the years. The TCU I have coming is plug and play with the CS software. It's makes for quicker clutch engagement, offers launch control and much more aggressive upshifts and downshifts. It should improve the drivability greatly. You have to remember this isn't a dual clutch gearbox - its a single clutch, hydraulically actuated manual and it honestly feels like someone is learning to
