    • Eurocharged to offer a Ferrari 458 twin turbo kit - Preliminary teaser video at 6 psi

      Eurocharged sure is doing a lot of tuning for Italian exotic turbo kits these days. They have a turbo kit for the Lamborghini Gallardo V10 platform and we will have details to post regarding their Murcielago V12 twin turbo setup shortly. In addition to those two Lamborghinis, they are tackling the Ferrari 458 Italia.


      We want to see shots of the turbos and manifolds as well as a dyno naturally but for now we just have this teaser video. Eurocharged claims 850 horsepower at 6 psi on the stock internals which is crank output of course.

      If we were to guess they are probably somewhere in the 6XX wheel horsepower range on pump gas. This will vary based on fuel quality and boost as well as how brave one is pushing the stock internals.

      We look forward to more details:

        I love the work they're doing, but releasing this kit when most owners will be trading in 458's for the 488 which will probably make the same #'s with bolt-ons + tune might make it a hard sell.

        Nah it would be like saying E46 M3 and E92 M3 forced induction is pointless due to the F80 M3.

        The 458 still has a larger and higher revving motor. Plus it's cheaper.

        There's a market.

        The BMW customer is far different from the Ferrari customer. I'd be shocked to see many people in the market for a ferrari buy a past gen car for the purpose of boosting/racing it. If that was the case there would be a ton of 430 turbos as UGR made a kit years ago.

        Well it's an option. I'm sure people buy Gallardos with the intention of boosting them.

        A 488 is going to be harder to get and much more money than a used 458 let alone used 430.

        Reviving a dead thread because I think the exact car from the video is for sale: https://www.autotrader.ca/a/ferrari/..._26_26&sprx=-1

        Sad nothing (as far as I've seen) came of this development.

        Yeah... sucks this went quiet. The 458 with a pair of turbos is just freaking epic.

        The 458 is a prettier shape too IMO compared to the 488 and F8.

        All those 458's seem really expensive for used Ferrari's no?

        I thought used 458's were under $200k at this point but I admit I don't follow the Ferrari market.

        Way expensive. ~$150k is more like it.

        Ah ok that makes sense. Also is that in Canuck-Bucks? Because $250k CAD is worth, what? $3.50 in USD?

        Exchange rate has been trending up lately, so maybe $3.75 USD? Haven't checked today.
