    Dear StefVan

    Good evening. I have found your posts to be immensely helpful and informative.
    I have been trying to cure a rattly exhaust resonance on my F430. Tailpipes have been changed yet a 3000/4000 RPM rasp persists.
    I have purchased the Capristo brackets and I would like for my own benefit as much as anything to find out if the original silencer is giving rise to this noise or not. If fitting these brackets makes no difference and I still hear the noise I will fit the Capristo twin sound silencer as well.
    My question relates to fitting the brackets as I am sure I remember a post saying that the large washers supplied should be fitted as spacers between the face of the bracket and the cross member.....not as all the photos I have seen where they are fitted as a conventional washer behind the head of the bolt. The Capristo website is not at all clear in this respect. I would be pleased to hear your opinion here as to the way round to fit these washers.
    Kind regards,

    Sorry to bother you sir, but I have been following all your posts regarding the 360 you sir are a very big help to me. Just a bit of intro I am all the way accross the globe here in the Philippines.
    I have been working on a 01 360 f1 the TCU is the oldest version w the 172 part no at the beginning. Changed;
    1. Clutch kit
    3. Hill eng tob
    4. Pos sensor
    5. pump & relay
    7. Resurfaced the flywheel. just .003 material
    My TEXA rig just arrived so i checked the PIS and it stands around 4.7
    I feel that there is quite a bit of improvement still to come in 1st gear. If I can maybe put the PIS around 4.2-4.5.
    My question is how do i manipulate the clutch thickness to adjust PIS using TEXA?Is this correct sir? So since my clutch is new, the closed clutch position is 15mm. When I manipulate this it is my understanding that I should lower it 15mm below going down. Or should I add to the 15mm. This is the part I get confused
    Please help sir appreciate it

    Hello StefVan, I just bought a 2006 F430 Spider six speed manual. I want to convert from the steel brake system to the CCM system. I saw a post where you did it. I did some research and a company in Florida, USA sells Ferrari oem parts that just replace the current rotors and brake pads. No lines, calipers or anything else other than tell the car that the brakes are now CCM. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you. Mark

    Hey StefVan, I am a new owner of a 2008 F430 in Australia. Just wondering if you could help me out with a bit of information regarding the Texa software as I own a mechanical business here and specialise in all types of mechanical repairs and performance work. I want to know if you think the Texa software is worth it and can do all the things i will need ie clutch replacement, E-diff bleeding etc or if you think there is something better, as i have been reading your post with interest and value your opinion.
    Any information would be much appreciated as we are 1200 miles from nears Ferrari Dealer.
