Good luck; it sounds like a very interesting project. Are you working with a good tuner and machine shop for this work?
You might want to look at some head porting too. I would at least flow the heads to see how they do. Finding power on an engine that is finely tuned already is going to be difficult.
You may also want to investigate standalone tunable ECU's in order to unlock some power that Ferrari chose not to for reliability or emissions reasons. Once you have an ECU that is powerful enough to tune the variable camshafts on that engine, you can do some amazing things.
We have a member here called mk_e, who has done a lot of tuning simulation work and machine work on his V12. He may have some good ideas for you.
Please keep your thread updated with the mods that you do.

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