WANTED: FHP Components and Shock ECU 201674

Just picked up a 2003 575M. Very happy with it so far, but it is not an FHP car and has the early shock ECU 183960, which has too much pitch and roll for my liking.

I am looking for shock ECU 201674 (or its replacement 205619), as well as the FHP Steering ECU 175891. I am also looking for the FHP 21mm rear anti roll bar and bushings, FHP springs, and FHP Pagid brake pads.

If anyone has any of these parts for sale, please let me know. I'm hoping to do these upgrades as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance.

Alex

Alex, we (Maranello Skunkworks) have the FHP steering ECU's (clones) available.

We're also working on an antisway bar & spring kit.

We haven't quite cracked the suspension ECU's either for the 550's or the 575's just yet.

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

Trying to figure out how to PM you for price and shipping quote on the FHP Steering ECU. Interested in getting that, at least for now, then sway bar and springs once available.

Would appreciate your guidance re how to PM you. Sorry for my IT ignorance. I'm a newbie at using forums.

Thanks again,
Alex

Alex- I have a set of FHP take-off pads (less than 500 miles) I bought as spares if you are interested. Installed ceramic brakes instead.

Thanks Taz, I'm definitely interested and will PM you for a quote (now that I know how :-)

I was surprised to find the first gen ECU on my car (VIN 132376, red with tan interior and SF shields). I thought only the earlier cars, i.e. early 2002 had it. I would have bought the car in anyway, as it's the car I wanted and fell in love with it right away.

I can't seem to find shock ECU 201674 even at full pop at any of the dealers, as it's been replaced by 205619 at more than double the price (around $2,700 CDN). Plus I'm concerned that it might be different in some undesirable way compared to 201674 that others have retrofitted successfully. Any further advice would be appreciated.

Thanks again,
Alex

Alex- My early 04, 135171, came with 201673, which worked fine. Try Maranello Classic Parts.

Hi Taz,

Can I assume that my 575 has the pre-Shock ECU 201674 because its a 2002 model and feels floaty to me? Will the Shock ECU 201674 help to eliminate the float?

Hi Alex,
Nice to know of a fellow 575 owner in Toronto. I too would like to update the suspension to eliminate the float and porpoising, which contributed to the need to replace a sway bar link after hitting a pot hole earlier this Spring.
I have a 2002 575M in Argento Nurburgring, American car, bought last September.

Clyde- She likely has 183960 and upgrading to 201673 or 201674 will tighten things up.

Terry, I have emailed Claudio at Eurospares UK to check if their shock ECU 205619 is compatible with my car based on its assembly # 47143. I do understand that the ECU 205619 was never installed by Ferrari as original equipment on their 575's but was only offered after 201674 was no longer produced as you've already explained, but what I am concerned about is whether it will be an improvement on my current shock ECU's. Also, since my 575 has 18" rims and tires, I wonder if I will feel the difference? I want to eliminate the float feeling and the porpoising as well.

Clyde- 205619 will not work on your 575M. Find and read the shock ECU document. Wheel size is not an issue. FHP 575Ms with 18" wheels are common.

Unfortunately this means I'm back to square one, anyway, thanks for making it clear a Terry. I saved the shock ECU document.

I emailed the seller on eBay of the Shock ECU I bought to see if he's provided installation instructions as John of Maranello Skunkworks was kind enough to do for the Steering ECU (with diagram), but apparently not. He's sent it out. I will get the ECU but no instructions. Does anyone here at least have a diagram (Terry?) showing its location in the car?

Clyde- You need to invest $125 with Daniel for a WSM.

What is a WSM, and which Daniel are you referring to?
Oh, I think I figured it out, you mean the Working Shop Manual for the Maranello from Daniel at Ricambi which I still haven't purchased yet (was going to but never got around to it). I guess all these photos are coming from the WSM?
I'll contact Daniel at Ricambi today and order it then.
Thanks Terry,
Clyde
Update: I decided to just call Ricambi by telephone directly and ordered it over the phone through someone named Aaron. Hopefully I'll receive it next week.

Hi Clyde,

Would be nice to get the cars together and compare notes. I just picked mine up last month and very much in the process of trying to figure it out. Love it though - lifelong dream, first Ferrari...

I live downtown Toronto and I'm often in Vaughan visiting my son with the car. If either of those areas would be convenient for you, or somewhere in between, maybe we could meet?

All best,
Alex

What a coincidence Alex
I just picked mine up last September. Also, I live in downtown Toronto and work in Brampton, but often visit my sister in Vaughn, so it should be fairly easy for us to meet up. I'd like that.
I am heading overseas next week, however, but I'll be back June 11.

Let me know when/where you'd like to meet?
Clyde
