    Does anyone know if this aftermarket add on pictured below is a worthwhile addition to a 512TR? Two are required (one for either side of car). How much extra BHP would these things give?

    Probably slows the car down, increase drag :)

    ANTHONY C,
    The last thing I want to do is slow the car down.

    That probably adds 10 lbs. fuel pressure at 50 mph. You're looking at 70-90 hp at least. But without a 4" exhaust tip, you're just wasting it.

    Wait a minute here, are you seriously thinking that this add-on piece will increase your HP output?? If you are, please enlighten me or give me the link to the manufacture of this add-on with details on how this would add HP to your car. TIA.

    DMC,

    I've got a sports exhaust with 3" tailpipes if that's any consolation.

    That's a truly bizarre website. How much ricer crap can they think of to put on Italian cars?

    It's worth a few blind clicks on the Japanese-only links to see the NACA intake hood you can get for your 348 (keeps your spare tire temps under control) or the super-classy plastic bags they have taped over their velvet or suede or whatever that is interior on the 328. Wouldn't want people touching the suede on the door pulls! Be sure to click on Information on the left to see their TR air intake engine cover!

    That 512 air scoop is like something out of Speed racer. I used to draw that on every car sketch I made in 1978 in 7th grade.

    IMO it looks very strange and will never do that to my beloved 512TR.

    That will do nothing except lower the value of your car!

    I like those intake scoops, Might test 1 on the race car to see if I can ram more air in :)

    HP gains? At least 50, don't forget the NOS sticker, it's a must with a mod like this. :) Just giving you a hard time.

    Regards,
