    Great news.....I'll be your next customer.

    Do you have total access or do you have to "send them somewhere"....

    For my engine I may need to play around a bit to get the best from the new port and valve profiles......

    Total access. The guy we bought the equipment off originally tried to do it, but couldn't, I worked out fairly quickly that he didn't actually know what he was doing, he was trying to "read" the wrong chip!
    EDIT: We can do 355's and 360's too.

    Great. Order your helicopter and lear jet now. you're gonna be seriously busy.

    I've got 360 ECU requests coming out my ears, but to be honest 355 has been tried with very little proven gain...but I'd like to see your figures.

    I saw a silver 550 going round the block on Friday that I didn't recognise...was that you looking for me?

    Can you explain just exactly what you are doing with the electronic chip in a 550. I race ducati motorcycles and we just pull out the chip and replace with it with another chip that we purchase from Ferrachi that is mapped differently.
    Are you reprogramming the stock chip in the car for the timing and fuel? Do you loe your initial factory programming then? Are there more than one programs within the stock chip and you are just selecting a different program already resident in the chip? I was wondering since Ferraris are so individual by country, I thought maybe all the chips had maybe country codes or something to choose which country it was going to to rather than have different chips for each country?
    I also wondered if you change the rear exhaust and the central resonator and crossover pipe is it necesary to remap the chip?
