The best thing to do is have the car torn down to investigate the current status of the flywheel, pp, disk, and T/O bearing.

The flywheel may be able to be machined, but it's small and if beaten by the clutch disk, it could be damaged.

If you go to a dealer he will not use aftermarket parts! So you'll be stuck in a few years with redoing the clutch.

www.hrclutch.com in SoCal can rebuild them for under $700.00 with the clutch disk redone in kevlar.

It is a tremendous improvement over the OEM.

The caveat is that the finished clutch can only be adjusted by an SD2/SD3 computer, and only the dealers have those. Some very busy independent shops may as well.

Do your research first and your friend will enjoy better success with his new clutch.

clutch.
Would an independent Ferrari shop be able to do the adjustment? Would Ferrari's equivalent of an SD2/SD3 computer work on Masers for the clutch adjustment?

The Maserati is a Ferrari so this isn't a problem.. The engine in the coupe is the same as the engine in the F430/430 Scud with minor modifications, including 1mm less in stroke, different compression ration and without the individual fuel injection for each cylinder. Same goes the the tranny, clutch, etc... There was a great write up in Automobile Magazine about the engine differences, there aren't many.
