I've been looking everywhere for aftermarket parts and the only thing i can find is intakes and exhausts. Is there anywhere that provides either superchargers or preferably a turbo kit for my coupe.

What intake did you find?

Modena Performance in Germany advertises forced induction for a large sum. Otherwise the cupboard is pretty bare.

We're unofficially working on a Twin Turbo for one of our customers who just can't get enough of a good thing. If you have SERIOUS interest then feel free to contact us and we'll discuss what you may expect out of the package.

We currently do not believe that there will be enough $interest$ in creating a truly marketable kit at the present time however if you want to get some real power from your Masi, this IS the way and we can get it done. It's just a matter of committing to it and spending the money. We can however accomplish a very good result for far less money then Modena Tech's Kit.

Modena-Tec has the twin supercharger kit advertised to make 660hp at $30,000 (actually a little over that but it's been a year since I've quoted one so that's a rough idea).

I would go to Jeff and have him do the turbo kit if I were you.

Regards,

Kevin

Wonder if the car is able to handle 600+ BHP, let alone straining the engine to a premature death.

Sounds nice, but risky.

i believe the torque will shorten the CC's lifespan to 2,000 miles. ><"

Your soul for a 666 bhp Maserati? Anyone besides me?

Not much faith in that Ferrari Engine it seems ;) You'd be suprised to learn what a well engineered machine is capable of, and don't forget that Modena-Tek already does this.

As far as the CC, the tranny should not be a problem, it's a quality component. The clutch MAY be a problem though, we'll see... In any case I'm sure the clutch will expire much quicker. Anyone want to start a betting pool? :D Sounds like Troesema has already reserved the 2K spot!

In any case, this modification is not for the garage queen Maserati's out there... it's for those who want to experience life and the beautiful Maserati in all it's glory.

BTW, we do take souls in on trade!

I would assume $ worth every penny!

a twin turbo setup on these cars should safely push 700 hp.

I am seriously thinking about having Formula Dynamics do it as well since they know the cars well and work with turbos already.

If there was more interest and dedication from owners the cost would definetly come down to the "no brainer" range.

spoke to jeff at formula dynamics and found that there isn't that much interest in the project so there isn't any kit as of yet, but im really considering having it done. if a few people were interested in the kit the price would drop. I'm planning on going on with the kit in a few months. i have an 02 coupe cc with 45000 miles and don't plan on selling anytime soon. I'll keep posted on the twin turbo kit project.

Thanks. Maybe I'm too simple minded to understand the complexity or big difference in blowing out one of our engines versus other highline or performance cars.
I know our compression ratio is a little high for supercharging so I'm not sure whether we'd have to run a small about of boost or thicker head gaskets to lower it because I'm certain new pistons would be a small fortune. But what would be the issue with fabricating a bolt on kit thru ProCharger. The SC itself is pretty much universal and if someone had a blueprint of the engine I don't see an issue with getting the mounting plate designed.
If not Procharger what about STS (remote mounting turbo). Yah I know there are mixed opions on this system and our cars already sit hella low but I think its do able and even for a custom build with either kit we wouldn't pass $10k. Not even close I don't think.
The first kit done might sting a little due to the fact that the mounting bracket would need to be designed for the procharger (I really like them). But If we had 5 initial orders and all went in I don't think it'd be that bad.

Just my $.02. Someone open my eyes as to where I'm wrong.

The block can handle it because we've seen the F430 (same block) pushed to 660hp+ on twin superchargers. The CCtransmission is more then capable of handling it, Novitec Rosso 360 :). Just not sure about the 6spd models.

so what about my procharger or STS idea

how do you guys feel on that. I honestly think that might be one of the cheapest setups and looking at prochargers reputation an extremely reliable one also.

the ecu tuning takes up a large portion of the costs. the custom fabrication is only minor.

Got cha! But I'd assume ecu tuning is only $3-$4k TOPS! so where is the other. $15k. I know I can't compare but a procharger or sts kit for a c6 vette is around $7k(actually less). So 7+4=$11k...... Are we paying the extra $9k because the dealers just think we have it????
