  1. Has anyone driven our car in the “Trofeo” version?

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    I remember mucking around with a Lotus Motorsport Elise a few years ago and the owner had to point out what was and wasn't factory. It was totally impossible to tell with the car being so track orientated in the first place and any changes done well. It could just be undocumented, or people have...
  2. Has anyone driven our car in the “Trofeo” version?

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    How does totalling a car work in the US? Here once a vehicle gets a WOVR (written off vehicle record, which sounds like being totaled) it is a parts or track car only and can never be registered again. Will you still be able to street drive your car? From a purely racing perspecitve - weight...
  3. Has anyone driven our car in the “Trofeo” version?

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    From the drawings/part numbers on eurospares, the car uses the same drive-by-wire and the exhaust is literally just a straight pipe. I'd be betting that the intention is that all the muffling would've been done in the cat (Item 1). Intake is just a pipe and cone filter Looks like there are...
  4. FS: Gransport Steering wheel. 1x Blue 3x Black

    MaseratiLife Market
    I found these while searching for parts to restore my own car. Prices are from $600USD- $1200USD because they came from various wreckers. Cheers
  5. 2006 Masserati GS parts

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    There are definitely enough parts to restore one of these cars. I've just spent the last month chasing up parts and would be happy to point you to whatever you're looking for from multiple people.
  6. TCU Swap?

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    It certainly isn't straightforward or quick, but the possibility is interesting. The process is the same as hacking the ECU for the maps that people purchase for their chip tunes. The difficulty is building definitions. The easiest way to do this is just to change things and see what moves...
  7. Need to Overhaul All My Brake Calipers

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    https://www.sportsmaserati.com/index.php?threads/restore-maserati-letters-in-the-calipers.26082/ Maybe try emailing the two companies listed in that thread and see if they'll supply a kit? Depending on the colour you want and luck, it might just be easier/cheaper to replace the whole set. You...
  8. Catless Headers

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    For $1k you'll get a set of headers that are fitted to drop in, and probably with the ceramic coating too. Most of the price variation will come if the cheapest supplier runs out quickly or if there is a specific request.
  9. TCU Swap?

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Yes, thanks, that is the correct link. I'm impressed you find it easy, I find reverse engineering stuff really hard. Maybe you can help us rebuild the partition tables on the bin files?
  10. Carbon Fibre Seat Backs

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    I've heard back from the local guy in Australia and they're not interested in taking on the work. So its $1600 USD a pair + shipping. If a few people buy in it will lower the costs. I need to pull my seat backs and send them off to the manufacturer in China. I'm bumping this to give anyone...
  11. Catless Headers

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    What do I even say to that? I'm pretty sure $1000 is less than $2900... What does Larini offer that the extra $1900 will buy? Inform me.
  12. Catless Headers

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    jlobo941 seemed to think there was something bad about building other cars. I was simply making the point that the principles do align; that is literally why we're taught them. And thank you for continuing to make that point that anyone can make a high powered engine. PSA: This thread is about...
  13. Catless Headers

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    On road cars I always design with keeping the MAF in mind. It isn't uncommon for people to lose the plenum and run and Alpha-N tune for the sound, but that has its own draw backs. I also don't do tuning, I design hardware. Earlier I linked to Vortech and a supercharger on its own cost more than...
  14. Catless Headers

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    I literally developed that LS1 kit. I literally said 'an LS1 kit I worked on'. I developed them from scratch. So a kit developed from scratch, by myself, for 8 cylinders, is sold by the client for a profit at $3500 USD, or less than an unboxed supercharger. For comparison, ITBs for Jenvey for...
  15. Catless Headers

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Those aren't CAD drawings, those are screenshots of CFD analysis that was used to validate a design that was brought to market. That particular screenshot was made for one of the few things I've done that wasn't under an NDA. Here are the results: The application was a single make race series...
  16. Catless Headers

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Rightyo spaghettio. But back to the point - if anyone wants some cheap headers modified to bolt in, drop me a message... P.S. The BMW S50B30 was the first production engine to crack 100hp/L for road use in 1991. The Honda F22C/1 was 124hp/L in 2000. Ferarri only matched that output with...
  17. Catless Headers

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Yes you will. There are several ways around it though. The best would be to replace the secondary cat with a good high flow cat and put the emissions O2 sensor post that with a proper O2 extension. That is how Larini solve the problem if you buy their headers. If you wanted to be dodgy you...

  19. Slow Down Engine Warning - 2006 Gransport

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    You'll need to read the OBD codes to have anything more than a wild guess; but afaik the 'slow down' warning on this era of cars is usually related to the cats in some way. If you still have the primary cat in the header it could've failed in someway, by your description - potentially blocked.
  20. Catless Headers

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    We're way off topic here - all I wanted to do was let people know I found a bunch of the catless OEM headers and would be happy to modify them to bolt straight onto the newer style flange. It would be half the cost at least of the Larini set, and the performance would be equal to the point of...
