Lambo Power _ Ferrari Power _ Just Tuned my 488

Posted by: FrankieFred May 11 2016, 05:42 AM

I just had my local shop tune my 488 on their Mustang Dyno. HOLY SHIT. Stock we put down 530, tuned (with stock exhaust) we hit 603 at the wheels. Unfortunately the weather hasn't been cooperating for the past two weeks, but I CAN'T WAIT to put her through the paces.

Would you lose your warranty?

Don't kid yourself, it records every time a scan tool is hooked up and they can plain as day see it's not a factory tune.

If they look, it's as obvious as spray painting trumps logo on the hood.

But fcuk it, enjoy the car and odds are this won't cause any detrimental problems anyway. icon_thumleft.gif

they didn't do it through the OBD2 port, regardless, it can always be flashed back to stock if need be.

Does that dyno really show that much loss to the wheels? 20%? aren't those supposed to be 661 at the crank stock? So that new tune could essentially be around 750bhp?

I like the wheels!

My understanding is that mustang Dyno's read the lowest. They said if it was on a dynojet it would he somewhere over 650 at the wheels.

Sounds about right. A local Mustang Dyno a '13 GT500 made 530-540whp and a C7Zo6 made around the same. There is usually a 10-12% difference between most properly calibrated Mustang Dynos and a Dynojet.
Very strong numbers. I bet with an exhaust added this car will be even more of a monster.

Would love to see some acceleration videos!

wow, any videos of it on the dyno?

5th gear, they took it to redline.. really needs exhaust.

That is some insane power from a tune. Enjoy!

There is no way to tell - just flash it back 5 -6 cycles and it's all gone.

Enjoy!

Unless Ferrari has done what Audi did, which is essentially a lock on the ECU, that once "broken" will always report as such. They scan Audis every time for service and diagnostics, and if they scanner reads that the ECU "lock" has been tampered with, your VIN is tagged OD1 or something like that requiring audi usa to sign off on any warranty repairs.

That's what I noticed. Redline is supposed to be 8,000 rpm.

Just ran my buddies 488 from 20-130 and it was dead even. No one pulled an inch.


My car runs 10.3@135
