For some reason, I'm starting to like the look of a fatter sidewall. Looks pretty sporty to me.

Those other Ferrari's look great.

Thank you much! Very nice results.

SAE is the most common standard of correction. On a dynojet, you would typically see the word SAE in the upper right corner of the page.

I agree that the wheels are not super nice. They are very "OEM" for OEM, if you know what I mean. But, I think that gives this car a certain polished dignity, IMO.

Beautiful car!

Very nice. What octane was in your gas tank? What kind of dyno? Do you know what correction factor was used? SAE?

Sorry for all the questions. Just interested.

Nice heads up.

Strange history on that car.

Front brake pads changed at around 8,000 miles. First diff fluid changed around 8,000 miles. And this is a P31 car.
