Euro cars escaped from the debilitating affects of emissions, so I don't know why there is a claim of reduced power from '78 onwards. Cams stayed the same throughout the years, so it couldn't be from that. I was aware of the switch to electronic ignition in '79, but could it have been in '78? In any case, I don't think that would have that much affect (advance curves as far as I know didn't change with the switch to elec. ignition).

Only way I can explain it is maybe they (Ferrari) finally decided to post real numbers instead of the optimistic/inflated, (introductory-year - remember, new cars need to sell and big numbers sell cars) output.

Until you get your car on the dyno and if you're happy with the way the car performs, leave it at that...
