    I am curious if the California T had it's timing changed in any way similar to the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio? I expect probably not since the V8 would run as usual just with the twin turbo boost. I have never noticed any sound difference from the typical V8 planar crank sound on the Calis.

    The "Big Bang" timing on the Giulia Quad is magnificent. The barks on upshift with enough throttle position and rpm are killer. I even get great backfires downshifting with my Forza valve open.

    The timing on the 2.9L V6 in the Quad is 90' 150' 90' 150' 90' much like the Moto GP guys like for getting the power down, with more time to react between strokes, and less snap kick out when the tire breaks free.

    Please confirm, thanks.
