    My colleagues and I have the car in our possession if anyone was curious what happened to it. From what I understand, it bounced around a couple of Ferrari dealerships and a few independent shops because bank 2 was inoperable. Since I am a Motec tuner and the rest of our team are factory trained former Ferrari dealer techs, we ended up with the car. The amazing part is that this problem just didn't happen all of a sudden, it has had this problem since day one of it's Motec installation! The entirety of bank 2 was permanently 30 degrees retarded. With in about an hour of taking delivery of the car, I checked the Motec configuration, made some changes and voila! Bank 2 is alive after 4 years!

    It's a gorgeous example! It belongs to a client.

    I'm going to make a video about it soon to open up the old "flat v12" debate. Lol But the punch line is the firing interval was incorrect. The flat 12 is an odd fire engine. The interval was configured as if it was an even fire v12 this whole time. Once I did the math and figured out the odd firing angles, it fired right up and ran smoothly.

    I not think so. this has been done when first installed. they only started with a wrong point. all other I think they did right - or?

    Yes. It has to be retuned from scratch. Actually I've completely removed the Motec and the entire engine harness and will be starting a completely new installation from scratch. I know you may be wondering why am I going through the trouble of starting all over again. This is such an unusual case, I decided to make a Youtube video of it. If you watch the video, it will all make sense.

    Actually, the configuration of the Motec was wrong from the very beginning. It was also installed incorrectly.
