    Good afternoon guys,

    Something else we have been working on for a few days is the Ferrari 458 Italia which is a good friend of GAD's new car based around his YouTube channel.

    Paul Wallace (Supercars of London) is working with the guys at Eurospares in Essex who are a massive stockist for Ferrari and Lamborghini parts.

    So they got this shipped over from the Middle East as it was one of the cheapest you can buy. The video series will be of bringing this thing back to life and to Re-spec it as they have everything!

    This 458 has literally sat in the Dessert for 6 years so its quite a project.

    So we have it to get some base data, get some proper actually decent fuel in it and we have replaced the OEM filter which was full of sand with a BMC panel and got based data.

    She is in need of a good service as initially its was making 470bhp on the dyno!!! Massively low but the more we ran it and ran it the car started waking up again so over the course of a few days 470bhp became 480bhp, became 490bhp, became 510bhp, became 520bhp and now is sat at around 530-540bhp

    Very much an Italian tune up ;) We think with some software manipulation after a good service we should start seeing 600bhp as this 458 is running tubular manifolds and is completely decatted.

    Below are some shots and videos please enjoy.

    For any enquires please feel free to pop an email over to info@gadtuning.co.uk or call direct on 05603 67 21 09
