    Congratulations, but does it work now? There were fundamental issues with the electronics, weren't there?

    As far as I'm aware the conversion didn't work (except the easy bolt on bits).

    The entire drive mode electronics system yes.

    If you're happy then great.

    Yes, I'm curious what mode the car defaults to when the mannetino is inoperative?

    Suspension = hard (Bumpy Road button inop.)
    E-Diff = fixed minimum lock level (open) for safety
    ABS = off
    Dynamic brake balance = off (front bias for safety)
    CT = off
    CST = off

    I can imagine. I dont think that many cars will come close to the engagenent factor. I had a manual and still miss it. Enjoy.

    I'm reasonably sure that I can make it work. I need the time to test on my car but I'll keep you updated when I get to it.

    I was behind the electronics side of the first conversion. I've also converted from F1 to Superfast 2. I have a good handle on the electronics of the 430 and Scuderia - the Florence architecture.

    I have the OEM parts to convert my car but first I want some more time with Superfast 2 (I've had the Scuderia approach planned for a couple of years). I may start in the spring.

    Awesome, congrats!

    Don't you also have an F430 getting converted to 6 speed?

    workmanship. On ''the other forum'' he posts in detail how they're made (especially a lot on the V12 Ferrari's he has loads of pictures of the exhausts in build and finished product). Every single person I've spoken to so far who has received any product from him has nothing but praise from start to finish.

    No idea about blankets.

    Four into one design. They work, but four into two into one would be preferred, which duplicates what Ferrari does, as well as Tubi and Capristo. More work and costly though.
    Also heat management is a big concern, if it is not offered, then one must ensure there is a third party solution that will fit his exhaust manifold.

    I recently realized something , after seeing you discussing the manettino, if you drive a pre 1995 car , most of them doesn't have any esc system and most of them have mechanical differentials.
