Like the blistering 562 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque coming from the naturally-aspirated 4.5-liter V8 engine are not enough for the owners of Ferrari 458 Italia, the UK-based performance tuning specialist Litchfield has officially released a package that boosts the power of the Italian supercar by 44 hp, thus takes it to the next level. How did these guys squeeze out additional 44 hp and 17 lb-ft of torque? Well, Litchfield Imports simply remapped the 458’s ECU, fitted the car with a high performance intake, carbon-fiber airbox, and Akrapovic exhaust system.
The addition of the titanium Akrapovic exhaust system also resulted in car’s weight reduction by 31 pounds. Litchfield Imports also installed High Flow Sports catalytic converters that make the 458 spit beautiful blue flames from the tailpipes.
