Looks good !!! ............ what are those metal covers over the motor mounts on your last picture? .......... I think I need some of these ........ and if they are not available then I will need to make some ........... I think heat is what kills the mounts on the 355 ................ that and the prodigious HP ....... !!!!!

........... F355 ...........

Hey Alex...Nice job. you obviously started that project a few days ago. She certainly was a dirty girl. Not sure I'm sold on the black crinkle induction but who am I to judge. Was that a customer request? Maybe once its back together it'll look different.

Love these kind of threads.

I perhaps missed this but have to ask:

- I know it's cool to do what your doing and have little problems with it from a cool standpoint, but why? The 348 is very sound/solid. Other than the painting, why break it down that far and do all the inner pieces? I can see it probably needed some cleaning out, but are you into the bearings and ALL the inner items from top to bottom?

- How many miles on the engine?

don't take this wrong, just asking.

The car was very tired. The valve guide had too much play. We are doing it complete top and bottom . The car has 40000 miles. it was not serviced properly for many years. We are do the job the correct way. This way I have no problems with the motor burning oil or not runinng correctly. When the car is all done . It will run great with more horse power. We are upgrading the computers , add a complete race exhaust system and much more. I will add more pictures as I go along.
If anyone has any question please feel free to ask.
Thank you.
Alex.

Looking brand new! I like the subframe coming out all at once and refurbishing everything that is hard to get to at once.

Alex- Who provided the valve guides? Seems there are much higher quality guides available from CHE Precision and other manufacturers than there are from Ferrari.

Beautiful workmanship on the entire car. I like the brake calipers with the raised Ferrari polished out and clear coated.
