2009, 29 Nov., as per e–mail from third–current owner,

Michael,

 

I have started gathering up info on my car.

 

The upgrades done to my car were done at Carobu Engineering in California. My car was written up in European Car Magazine, see attachment. Also see this Carobu link. www.carobu.com/html/f40_project.html

 

The combined effect of these upgrades made the car a much better car. It now has the low speed torque and gearing to easily allow me to drive it daily.

 

 

1) Ferrari LM Turbos

 

2) Hyperflow Cats

 

3) Tubi Exhaust

 

4) Straight cut drop gears

 

5) Razzo Rossa LM computer chips to maximize the above upgrades

 

 

The VIN # is ZFFMN34A5L0087181.

 

 

I have also attached receipts. When I bought the car I had all that work done — Lm turbos, tubi, hyperflow cats etc.
