    Update: Trans was done (Ams Kit doesnt include nearly enough parts to be able to handle a full w4 upgrade- wish i would have stuck with weistec for that) by a local reputable trans shop who told me my output shaft was twisted. Week later and im supposedly good to go up to 1000whp as long as im not voilently launching the car. $2700 for labor and extra parts plus the price of the AMS Clutch upgrade kit.

    Just got the body motion sensor to work. I'm about to dump ADT. Wish Google Home could dial 911 then that would be perfect! One day! For now I will just self-monitor. Did you get the coffee machine? Oh, Home Assistant now works with Alexa but you have to have the setup connected to its cloud which is expected. They're expanding to Google Home also. I might visit door bell one day. Have the front camera already so no incentive yet.

    Bruh- for serious. If it starts with "I read on the forums" or "I had it at another shop" or "I had xxxx replaced" it instantly goes to a retainer fee until we sort out what the issue is. I don't mind fixing other people's problems, but I'm not going to do it for free or cheap.

    I keep hearing some people are making one but never see it... I know space is a limiting factor under the hood so what about a killer chiller or something similar? Forge has a larger heat exchanger but the IC remains the same small core... part 8 in the pic is the IC and it feeds both turbos (M5 and E63 have separate IC's for each turbo) Its just kinda crazy, with RS7 being so potent on stock turbos pretty quickly after they initially came out, that in all the time since then we havent seen more than 2- 3 people finding a way to successfully run upgraded turbos.

    Previously, Gintani utilized an ethanol flex-fuel system built around the Advanced Fuel Dynamics Proflex Commander control unit for S65 V8's. Gintani was not happy with the performance and designed a new and much more robust E85 capable fuel system. This system will support more than enough flow on E85 for any supercharger application out there. What will it include? - Flash Tablet - Multiple Gintani tuning files - Pump gas tune - Ethanol tune - Fuel pumps - Upgraded lines - Modified fuel railes - New injectors To use the fuel system you will need to run Gintani's tune. That means if you have a supercharger kit from someone other than Gintani and want this fuel system they will only sell it to you providing Gintani tunes for it. This is obviously to prevent people from upping boost, adding E85, and then blaming Gintani when something goes wrong. This is not a flex-fuel setup. When running the E85 tune, stick to E85. The flash tablet will allow someone to flash their car to a pump as tune if they run out of ethanol and do not have any available for example. It will also allow for more aggressive race gas tunes. This ethanol fuel system kit will be released next month when Gintani finishes moving into their new location. Expect pricing from $3-$4k.

    You would think so. Just bypass or eliminate OEM unit and go air to air if anything...

    from what I've heard the IC is the bottleneck... even TTE admitted on an audi forum that without improved IC capacity/Flow, that their turbo upgrades didnt perform much better than stock

    It is no secret McLaren has been kicking dirt in Ferrari's face since the launch of the MP4-12C. Frankly, the MP4-12C is still a performance match for Ferrari and their 488 GTB let alone the new 720S which is on a different planet of performance. The 488 Pista aims to level the playing field. Whether it is enough to catch the 720S is anyone's guess but it is at least a valiant effort. What are the main changes? - 200 pounds less weight - Claimed 2821 pounds dry - 710-720 horsepower - 20% increase in downforce - Revised E-diff and traction control - Aerodynamic changes - Suspension changes It is safe to say the 488 Pista has its work cut out for it. It certainly looks the part. Maranello, 21 February 2018 – The Ferrari 488 Pista, which will be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, is the successor to Ferrari’s V8-engined special series - the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale – which have received critical acclaim for their performance and undiluted handling. The Ferrari 488 Pista marks a significant step forward from the previous special series in terms of both sporty dynamics and for the level of technological carry-over from racing. The name is, in fact, a direct homage to Ferrari’s unparalleled heritage in motor sports. The car’s development evolved directly from the company’s involvement in the FIA World Endurance Championship – in which it has won five Manufacturers’ titles in the GTE class in the six years since the series’ inception – and its 25 years’ experience in running the Ferrari Challenge one-make series. The Ferrari 488 Pista’s extensive weight saving solutions, along with engine, vehicle dynamics and aerodynamic developments, all derive from Ferrari’s racing cars: the 488 GTE and the 488 Challenge. The result is a car with an uncompromising mission: to offer impeccable track-like performance on and off the road, even when in the hands of non-professional drivers. LIGHTER AND MORE POWERFUL The new model weighs an impressive 90 kg less (1280 kg dry) than the 488 GTB. This fact, combined with the largest ever increase in engine power for a special series car (+50 cv), sets a new benchmark for Ferrari’s V8 sports cars. Its engine is the most powerful V8 in Ferrari history and is an extreme evolution of the turbo unit that won the overall International Engine of the Year award titles in both 2016 and 2017. It punches out 720 cv with the highest specific output of in its class (185 cv/l) and is now lighter too, thanks to solutions adopted from the 488 Challenge. As a result it has a top speed of 340 km/h and sprints from 0-100 km/h in 2.85” and 0 -200 km/h in 7.6”. The engine sound is unique and unmistakably Ferrari, as such a special car warrants. Both the sound quality and the intensity are higher than the 488 GTB in all gears and at all engine speeds in proportion with the progressive increase in power. BOOSTED DOWNFORCE The Ferrari 488 Pista makes full use of Ferrari’s motor-sports experience for maximum aerodynamic performance even on the road. Among the racing solutions adopted is the front F1-inspired S-Duct and the design of the front diffusers which feature a ramp angle that was optimised for the 488 GTE to create strong suction for increased downforce. Additionally, the rear blown spoiler is higher and longer and the shape has been optimised. The final result of all these interventions is an impressive 20% increase in downforce compared to the 488 GTB. EXHILARATING DRIVING PLEASURE The vehicle dynamics were designed to enhance driving pleasure and make the car’s full potential available to all drivers, professional or otherwise. The objective was to make the car’s performance on the limit easier to reach and control. This was achieved by synergies between the development of the mechanical set-up and the electronic dynamic controls integrated into version 6 of the Side-Slip Angle Control system. SSC 6.0 incorporates all the following systems: E-Diff3, F1-Trac, the magnetorheological suspension (SCM) and, for the first time ever, the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer. The FDE features a world-first: it uses Ferrari software to adjust the brake pressure at the callipers. A POWERFUL, EFFICIENT DESIGN The design of the Ferrari 488 Pista is focussed on functional aerodynamic concepts while the cockpit is pared back in keeping with its very sporty vocation. Ferrari Design used innovative elements, such as the aerodynamic S-Duct at the front, as an opportunity to visually shorten the car’s nose, creating an original floating wing effect. The racing livery colour scheme is an integral part of the design of the car and the way it dives into the S-Duct underscores the berlinetta’s compact yet imposing forms. Contrasting edging on the aerodynamic elements on the bumpers and flanks add structure to the design. The concept of the front is echoed in the dolphin-tail rear spoiler which appears suspended to provide an impression lightness and efficiency, while the rear volumes add a sense of power to the tail.
