What do you think it is?

Do you think the engine is a F355 V8 or a Testarossa flat 12? Or neither....

Chris, it sounds like a V-8 to me.

Can you fit a flat 12 in a 355? Having said that, why would you?

I thought it sounded like a V-8 with a different exhaust to me. The video just caught my eye by the title and the silly people commenting. A person said that someone on Ferrarichat is currently installing a Testarossa engine into a 328...not being a member of that site I don't know the truth to that...I don't understand why someone would put a flat 12 into a 355 because there isn't much of a performance upgrade, and with the weight of the 12 it would just be silly...

I have looked but I can not find the photo

There is such a beast out there

A 355 with a testa engine in it, not sure why they did it?

It did not improve performance at all even with the extra 50 hp and took away from the over all handling.

I would have expected a clip showing the engine - not the side of the car !
What, me cynical?

I was wondering that too...I thought it was silly of showing the side of the car.
