ECU Tuning

I am looking for feedback from Ghibli owners who have had ECU tuning upgrades. What has been the long term experience with the car? How has the daily driveability been? How has the experience when taking the car to the dealership been? Have they re-flashed the ecu or detected or warned about its use? OR, has it been smooth sailing and a great thing that you would highly recommend? Please be candid. Thanks in advance.

No issues at all with the right ECU tune. Daily driving is fine, no CEL's and does not impact the car going in and out for service.

Any updates done by the dealer, (like the 272A emissions), could/will overwrite the performance tune. Most tuners like ENZO will reflash for free ... you pay for the shipping back and forth.

At least one Maserati dealer I'm aware is installing the Enzo tune; other tunes besides Enzo that I'm familiar with positive results is DG Eurospeed and Eurodynamic.

I have EuroDynamic tune on my car for 8 months now and never had any issues with it. No CEL and never had to readjust my spark plugs.

EuroDynamic will tune your car right in front of you at the dyno. They will reflash your car for free if the dealer overwrites the tune.

Here are my times

Stock:
0-60mph in 4.4s
0-100mph in 11.2s

Tuned:
0-60mph in 3.8s
0-100mph in 9.5s

EuroDynamics owns a Ghibli SQ4 which they used to develop their tune on the dyno and at the track.
They ran 11.9s on the 1/4 mile with their Ghibli.
I ran 12.2s on 1/4 mile.

I believe Gus has one of the fastest ghiblis here. I have a fabspeed tune and it's definitely a night and day difference from stock, especially in those higher gears and no issues at all.

Gus - is that just the tune, or did you also do exhaust, intake, etc.?

That's with DP and BMC filters. I haven't tested the car in a long time but a 3.6s for 0-60mph is definetly achievable. You just need a perfect launch (very few people can do it). Not that many people on the forum cares about 0-60mph so I stopped at 3.8s haha.

Just tune and 93 oct.
0-60mph in 3.9s
0-100mph in 9.9s

Tune only with mix of racing gas and 93oct.
0-100mph in 9.7s

Tune, DP, BMC filters and 93 oct
0-60mph in 3.8s
0-100mph in 9.5

I only tested the car once in each scenario. I still havent tested my current setup with racing gas.

Unlike other companies who suffer in the support department, we stand by our tune and directly connect with customers in forums for the absolute best customer service out there.

We have tuned over 50 Ghibli & Quattroporte models with great success and continue to develop our technology. We highly recommend clients go with a trusted brand and one that offers solid customer support. We have heard horror stories of cars being stranded due to lack of communication from the tuner. We have had to correct a handful of tunes that were not performed professionally, leaving the customer without a vehicle. Luckily we have the ability to safely optimize all the engine parameters with a working, proven calibration.

Our tune runs low 12's consistently on pump gas with no hick ups, no Check Engine Lights and of course no misfires. In addition, our tune is capable of working with Hgh-Flow Catless Racing Downpipes where other tunes have had issues doing so successfully.

For any additional questions or concerns please email info@enzoperformance.com to get EnzoTuned. Also for any inquires about our 500R+ package, mention GhibliForum for a special discount for the month of May.

Cheers,
Chris

I have the ecu from enzo and use it as a daily driver. Happy with it still waiting for the downpipes to come back in stock.
No problems so far. Pulls stronger off the line but better top end.
In my opinion, This is how it should of came from factory!
Will post more after I get the downpipes installed.
