    nice short video - but where is the sound? nearly nothing to hear :(

    the intake manifolds with "testrossa" on it I would modify to "512 BBi"

    You need to replace your commodore 64

    Putting BBi on a BB would be just as incorrect no? Not trying to hide what the engine really is, I wish it said 512M on it to be honest.

    BBi because it is a BB with injected engine
    but 512 N would be also good ( N for newmann :) )

    and the commodore 64 has been a very great computer at that time, but really, the sound on the video is really not as great as the video before you put in youtube

    No road test ugh.....but I drove it up to my house from the shop. 2 little things Im addressing is the wide band O2's are timing out so I might have to move them from the pre-existing holes that were used on the twin turbo application closer to the manifold outlets which is easy.

    The other that made a road test pointless is a hesitation. I need to tweak the transient throttle enrichment and check a few other parameters then off I go.

    The engine has been run up to operating temp several times, fans cycling on and off, gauges registering in happy ranges and Im pleased with the HC readings.

    Ill slide the rear bumper on tomorrow so I don't stand out more than a ferrari normally would.

    That's what I thoughrt when I first saw the pictures. But looking a bit more carefully, it's just the angle of the photo which gives that perception and the biguns on the rear.

    Road tested today! First impressions are its very smooth both in how it runs / feels and how the car rides. The sound is to die for with this titanium muffler, I need one for my car! Tons of power but I haven't opened it up yet, I was monitoring HC and making adjustments during the road test to dial out my hesitation and lean it out where required. I also lowered it today, might need to come back up a bit but ground clearance isn't an issue at all, maybe tire contact with clam shell lip so maybe a slight lift is in order. I haven't driven it in its current height and its raining now so Ill focus on other details on the car itself.

    No unfortunately a spacer isn't an option BUT a pair of new outer rim lips in a wider version could replace the current ones to move the rim out and run a wider front tire.

    Ok, I know it's personal opinion but I hate spacers. Wheels are supposed to be tucked in fenders :)

    Pininfarina got a few things right ;)

    The BB is Pininfarina's best ever, I think. Not one line out of place. So refined, yet so muscular.

    The thing that usually lets the BB's down is the fender gap, but man this car has the absolute best filled rear fender opening - perfect!
