    Jeff- Whatever makes her happy is just fine. The ignition/injection system is likely working better with all the electrons flowing, so she may be feeling that.

    Thanks Taz, smells like fuel, so maybe that ignition/injection/all that is working itself out.
    I need this H pipe installed but MUST pass a CARB first. Dealer told me not to smog it until it had some miles. I hope it passes.

    They elected to rebuild the alternator and sent it out...
    I assume rebuilt alternators are an acceptable alternative given they are hard to come by (new).
    Unless it is of course some “magic Ferrari alternator” !

    When mine went out, the new one had to come from Italy.

    Cribbj has a list of equivalent parts, there is one for the 456.

    Agreed. It really complements the car well.

    Using my crude Photoshop skills, I think Ferrari made a mistake going with the Aston Martin 3/4 window profile. They should have stuck with the Daytona/456 3/4 'bend' instead of the recognizable AM/Jaguar 3/4 window.

    Just my opinion.
