Fiammenghi Engineering on CarFix show

Hello guys,
I would like to share with you an opportunity that that presented itself me on the beginning of January.

I closed an agreement with the CarFix show (made of Brenton Productions), In exchange of my providing Full exhaust for their Ferrari 575 Project, the CarFix in an episode will install my product during the show and will say my name during the installation.

I included in the providing also the kit for manual bypass opening, because is essential for enjoy of the V12 engine note, with the burble during gas release and the small, but nice, bang during up shift near rev limiter obviously when traffic permit.
They cannot guarantee any specific on-air time with my product but their 575 project consist only in two products, then I'm confident.
This morning I sent the three boxes with the full exhaust in Tampa to the studios, the show will be registered next week.

During this month I was in contact to one of the two guys of the CarFix show, Jared Zimmerman, for the details and for the updates of the manufacturing from my side, it is a very kindly person, it was a good experience to exchange with him somethings and I'm very sorry to cannot go in Tampa for meet him and the other guys of the show.
I'm happy that he was so kindly to put the 575 on the dyno before the installation with the OE exhaust and it will test also after with my full exhaust installed.

The show will premiere on April 28, 2018 on Velocity channel. You will need to check with your local provider for channel number information.

Fabio, I hope all the tifosi here will spread the word over at the other forum and encourage everyone to watch.

'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.

Hello guys,

the works in Tampa are going on, they employ more time because are engaged in other projects and also because the 575 need the front bumper and hood painting, perhaps within the end of this week they will complete the installation, the probram will be on air the April 28.
They confirmed me that the installation of my system is very easy more than the original system, and as per their words "there's no comparison to the factory system, the fit is fantastic for a car with such tight tollerences", my interfaces was perfectly fitted between their and also with the car.

The pic pof the complete system is of the 550 that i sold to a Canadian Friend on 2017 march, but excepted little details, is the same of that i send to CarFix for the 575.

Regards at All

Fabio

Fabio- Cooler under the hood/bonnet, too, since the precats are not generating all that heat. Same solution Ferrari used on the 599 GTO.

Terry,

yes that's correct, under the engine bonnet of my 575 temperature decreased to much, now is reasonable ....

Hello guys,
during the agreement with the Network, i asked them if they could be test the 575 on the dyno before and after my exhaust installation, as some of you know, i didn't test my 575 on dyno with the orignal exhaust installed but only with my system and the orginal HGTC back mufflers, the response was 551 HP, 36 HP more of the data power.
My estimation before the test, based of the driving sensations by me and my dealer, was of 50/60 HP.
Jared, the guy of CarFix did the two tests and result it is great, my estimation was prudent and driving sensations was correct....

Following the datas obtained in Tampa on the 575:

Wheels power in OE conditions: 439 HP at 7400 rpm
Wheels power with my full exhaust: 495 HP at 7400 rpm

The increased power is 56 HP but at th ewheel, if we supposed a mechanical efficiany of 11-15% the flywheel power is : 62 - 65 HP

I'm very happy!

Fabio, very happy? You should be 'over the moon!' That is an increase of 12.75% in power at the wheels with not a single change in the engine, so no added engine stress. Sensational!
