    Hi, I normally stick to the Lambo section on this board but I need some help finding a novitec F430.

    I am not sure how many novitecs are in the US, if any but it would be nice to see one run against a TT Gallardo. Currently there are 4 Heffner twin turbo Gallardos on the road and another five undegoing conversion in his Sarasota FL. shop. At the end of next year there will be at least 20 on the road. Three cars are in FL, one is in Chicagoland, two are in LA(by the end of the year), and very shortly there will also be one in TN and another in TX, followed by another in Las Vegas.

    If anyone has any info or knows someone with a novitec f430 who might be up for the challenge please pm me.

    Thanks!

    Here are a couple of pics of my TT Gallardo located in Sarasota, FL.

    In the second picture, I like the arrow with the writing "here" underneath it, as if waiting for that novitec f430 to come alongside. ;)
    Nice lambo though, I'd take that over any murcie!

    Thanks guys! I am very happy with the tt system, car is running strong.... no problems at all with over 3k miles so far except that it has developed a dual personality... crusing around in traffic it acts like a regular Gallardo, but find some open road and engage boost and this thing turns into a monster. It is brutally fast! I have given several people rides.... many are left speechless, some compare it to an amusment park ride, and one or two have complained about stomach cramps!

    If you are into speed, adding blowers is a good option.....so I am surprised that the novitec SC isn't catching on here in the US... both the G and the f430 could use a power bump, considering next year's batch of sport Audis, M5's Benz's will probably outgun us.....

    Here is a vid of my car vs a murci, plus a run at the drag strip:

    Beautiful car man! And, to top it off, a 6-speed! :D

    What is the AWHP she's pushing out? Have you run an LP640 yet? Any noticeable difference between that and the 'regular' Murcielago compared to your TT G?

    Thanks again guys, didn't expect all the props you been handing out! Car is running on 10 lbs boost right now. I also converted the G to a RWD car since that video was made. Making 750 rwhp today. Still looking for that elusive F430 novitec!

    Call Albert at CEC (Novitec) in LA. I believe they have now done around 19 of the F430's and are up to about 651 Hp.

    I would contact the company directly and see what happens. They know their customers well I would think.


    Jason builds some awesome machines!!

    Great pics! I cant wait for the magazine article to come out from that event.

    I don't know, they keep raising the bar. Albert should be able to tell you where some of the cars are located in your area and may even call a few of the owners for you. Tell him that Philip Cardwell in Birmingham told you to call. His number is 310-203-3905

    Hey Mr. Vroom. I know you from ********** :)



    Let's face it. Even a Novitec 707 hp 430 is not keeping up with a 750rwhp Gallardo.


    I don't know how you do it, man. 750rwhp and RWD would scare the CRAP out of me!!!
