whats with all the "pm me" shit.

How about a fully public conduct of business.... a "tune off" between Nero and ATPG......

They both claim to put their $ where theire arse mouth is.......

I don't get it.

You buy a 360 which has good performance and good speed if you can use the speed and you then want to 'chip' it or tune it or whatever for more performance.

Then when you do it little gremlins start to cause issues etc and you blame the Ferrari brand for unreliability.

I reckon you just buy a Ferrari no matter what model and drive it for what it is and forget the stupidiy of tuning it etc.

If you really want a rocket go get a Nissan GTR or something but I know what I would rather be driving.

From my experience I have yet to see a Ferrari go quicker with such tuning mods so from where I stand a big waste of time and money.

There is my 2c worth on the topic.

Perhaps you guys have been using the wrong tuners?
The do go better, more responsive and more fun.
We have done 458's, 360's, and 430's all with happy happy customers

You've done 458s, in australia?

As I said, tweaking the throttle map definitely improves PERCEIVED performance, but peak figure gains are not worth the risks and costs.

There is absolute minimal risk only when tuning properly.
Timing and fueling needs to be precise.
We have 2 more 458's later this week to do in aus.
Obviously you dont see any value in tuning them so lets just beg to differ.

Not sure why you feel peak numbers are what tuning is all about either.
Gains at peak are only about 18bhp on safe mapping, but it how it delivers the power that the big change.

As I said, don't worry. Just plug in stradale ECU,TCU, hot wires and you will be just fine! I'll do you a package deal and all are brand new in stock.

As I said, stradale has larger throttle bodies and inlet manifold is a larger casting too, and air boxes and pipework...

Stradale tcu is a decent value upgrade though.
