http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/boxers-tr-m/175398-bad-azz-boxer-part-2-a.html Well, here we go one last time. My experience with this car so far has been; briefly exhilarating, briefly a seemingly solid idea, but thoroughly frustrating, thoroughly overpriced and an absolutely questionable idea!! Its been more like the "Money Pit" with Tom Hanks and Shelley Long than the "Man and LeMans" with Steve McQueen!. My shop experiences ranged from ok to very unsatisfactory. But I always felt that I could not surrender the project, although in hindsight......;O Anyway, the real issue was the turbo's and their application. Just too complicated and too much heat. I will say, when it was running right, O my word what a blast. At 6lbs boost the thing was a rocket and definitely brought major grins. I will also say, again, avoid at all costs "one off" Ferrari fabrication. Run, run, run. I had decided to remove the turbos etc and called Paul Newman, our famed Boxer guru, for some advice and counsel. One thing led to another and instead of being bummed and frustrated, other options opened and things began to gel in a positive and exciting direction. I will contribute to this thread but am mostly turning it over to Paul and his extensive 12 cyl expertise. Take it away my friend and lets do this finally and absolutely.
