    Steve Mase IS THE MAN for ECU Tuning!!!!!

    He did my 2001 360 Modena a few years ago with great results, even added some speed for faster throttle response!

    Big Thanks to you Steve!!!!!!

    I have to jump on the bandwagon. I had just sent my ECU's out to have them flashed with the CS tune. I've had the MAF's forever and finally could put them to use. Wow, what a difference in throttle response and performance.
    Let's talk though about customer service.. I sent them out on a Wednesday and had the back Friday...

    Amazing...

    On my last post - that tune was not done by Mase ...My questiion, to be a little clearer, is what has been the experience at other shops on a Scuderia without any modifications...Sorry for any confusion

    When you deal with the MASE, you aren't dealing with a long supply chain, he is the direct source. Better pricing, faster service, and custom bespoke service as you know. Good to hear!

    I did CS transmission ecu and a 360 custom tune on the same 2000 Ferrari 360 car, and it drives just as good as the real stradale that sits next to it in the garage, lol.

    If only people knew that you could buy an old 360, clean it up, then get almost the same performance as a car that people pay much more $ on, I think the old ones would be worth more.

    I have never owned a Scuderia but I did have a F430 with test pipes, and straight exhaust, MASE did tune it on a mustang dyno and I believe we picked up about 30HP before and after flash on the same night.

    My tuned F430 would spin my 325/30/19 Michelin tires in low gears easily and sounded insane!

    Is he using the SAE J1349 JUN90 correction factor for that 409 base number? How many power pulls did he do to average from? Just seems like a high average base wheel number considering a realistic 20% parasitic loss.

    I just had Steve tune my ECUs and I am amazed by the results. Sent the ECUs to Mase on Tuesday overnight. They received Wednesday, flashed the unit, and sent it back out the same day with overnight shipping. I received them yesterday and re-installed that night. This morning, I took the car out for a quick spin and was shocked how responsive and tight the throttle feels. The car behaves as if it shaved off a couple hundred pounds or more.

    I'm super excited to see how it behaves once I get the Capristo headers and OEM sports exhausted installed in the next few weeks.

    Looking to get this done when my exhaust comes in. (if it ever does)

    How do you guys go about passing emissions with the CEL off. I heard the tune turns off the module that turns off CEL and that it will cause it to not pass emissions.

    Call him and let him know exactly what you have done and want out of the car. He is amazing and transformed my 360. I am running the CS Airboxes and MAF's, and now the CS Tune.

    Tune the ecu + headers
    Definitely has more power
    I have it in my car
    for more than a year ago
    And the change is awesome
    And it's not something psychological
    I could try it both on track
    As in race of acceleration against 458 italia nissan gtr or 599 gtb

    Starting in 1:40" vs nissan gtr

    Just got Agency Power headers and Kline Exhaust installed on my F430. I will be contacting Mase Engineering soon for a possible tune.

    The proper tune really makes a difference especially with exhaust and headers. It will feel and sound like a different car.

    Hello all,

    Thanks for the very kind words. I'm happy to report I have become a Ferrari Chat forum sponsor, and will be dedicating more time to the forums, and hopefully can be an asset to the community. I will start a post about our ECU Flashes for the 360 and F430 models here soon.

    Anyone in the mean time can contact me directly on here or email: Mase@MaseEngineering.com

    Regards,
    Steve

    This is meant as a "heads up". California will soon be looking at Mode 9 Engine Calibration records during smog checks for tuning alterations. If your ECM has been altered by tuning you will fail smog. The Air Resources Board has been collecting data for the last 5 years and has written the Order. It is just awaiting Legislative signing to be implemented. Looking at 2018, maybe 2019. I'm sure the Manufacturers are more than happy with it and have provided assistance to the ARB. If you life in California, proceed with caution as the tuning community looks for a work-around.

    Both the 360 and 430 are VERY tunable. Based on my experience, most manufacturers leave allot on the table. With very minimal mods...custom headers, sport cats and straight exhaust, some mild ECU tuning got the CS an extra 50.

    if Steve's able to turn off the exhaust CEL while still allowing it to pass smog, I'd definitely be in for the group buy!

    That is the big question for me. If CEL is turned off am I still going to pass a OBDII smog test on emissions? I'm in on a group buy if so and if offered!!
