I am crossing my fingers and hoping that your dyno results show the additional 50-62 HP or more. This will be very interesting.
Also, I have a question. My shop (Alex Armellini @ Daytona) has offered me an engine ECU upgrade (not a flash upgrade but a chip upgrade) which he claims will net me about a 40 HP gain, do you think its wise to do this? In addition, Massimo Conti (former Schumacher mechanic and developer of the F430's faster F1) who works there has offered to work on my F1 to smooth out and speed up the shifts (I am actually more excited about this).
What is your opinion?
i think that if only the ECU upgraded you have 40 HP gain .. with my exhaust how much i will gain?.... and ECU + exhaust? 100 hp? = F599 ...
I have some doubt about 40 hp (is only my supposed) because is the 7.7% of the max power but i never done this and if Alex said this, i think is true.
I supposed in my case 10/12% for follow reasons:
- i removed big CAT - 600 cps? (+3%?)
- i removed the little pre cat - 600 cps? (+3%?)
- i installed only one big area CAT 200 cps
- my header have more scaverning in comparison to the original very bad designed headers. (+6%?)
total = 3+3+6 = 12%
About F1 speed up the shifts you can go without problems, normal 575 have 220 ms shift time , HGTC have 180 ms .... probably can go also little bit down ...
I like the F1 of my HGTC, my dealer tell tme that in some conditions (slow driving) is better that the F599 F1 ...
My opinion about the two upgrades is:
if price is ok for you, go on!!! For sure the enjoy of your 575 will increased ...
