February 20, 2004: rare Ferrari 288 GTO comes to Speed Lab for a full day of careful fuel and spark mapping from our laptop computer. Using pump gas and only 12-13 psi of boost pressure, the 2.8 liter twin turbo V8 now runs clean, with a broad torque curve making 414hp at the tire. Ferrari rated this motor 400 hp at the flywheel. What a great sound it made. Photo by R. Payton.
