    Do you say, "Hello, Handsome" to your 348? After all, it is.

    What types of upgrades? How did you arrive at the decision to use certain upgrades instead of others?

    Nice car, what do you mean by stage 3 upgrade with the ECU's ?
    How much BHP now ?, what did they do ?, where did you have them done ? etc.

    I have a 348 spider like your with different things on it.

    when the tubi & straight pipes were installed the car felt flat
    and was not happy with the performance.

    both ecu's were upgraded to allow alot more fuel as the mixture had become week to the reuction in back pressure. also rev limit was increased to around 8500rpm.

    once installed verdi based in hayes tweaked the mapping by connecting laptop to ecu's & twaeking the mapping to suit the cars needs.

    give him a call very helpfull with loads of experience. even main dealers
    use him for servicing. 02087560066

    ** All I ever see is RED. Silver is a delightful change. Do you have any photos you can e-mail me showing the 19" wheels?

    Thx .. Family Man
