DCT Rebuilds

Communicated with Boardwalk in Dallas the other day and discovered Ferrari had distributed tool kits for rebuilding DCT gearboxes about a year ago. Boardwalk has already rebuilt several and the price varied from about $10-15K. Expensive, but good news they can be rebuilt compared to the cost of a new one.

Terry, forgive my ignorance, DCT=Dual Clutch Transmission? Being altered to manual? Or F1 being altered to manual?

Salve,

Capo- Neither. Before, if someone's dual clutch transmission broke, it had to be replaced. Fine if under warranty, not fine after the warranty expires. Now they can fix them.

The way the Ferrari DCTs are set up, no way to convert to three pedal operation.

I got a spare just in case, I have no warranty with what I'm doing with my 458 build. Good to see that they are fixable would like the pdf of the gearbox pull down if one is out there? I have the full workshop manual for the 458 but it shows very little about the inside of the gearbox/diff.

That's interesting - would like to see a cost breakdown along with the price of a new one.

Dough- Ricambi does not have them priced, but Maranello Classic parts has the California DCT complete for about $17K and the 458 for about $18K. Not as bad as I thought, but then, it would be on the wrong side of the pond.

Terry I had heard 15k new for the 458 - would think that kit would be under 3 - 5k and maybe 12 - 14 hours.

Just seems awfully expensive for a rebuild. Maybe Daniel will chime in after he posts in the Cards thread.

Doug- Those were warranty jobs and remember, it costs quite a bit to yank the transaxle and reinstall it. Even if somone bought a new one, it still has to be fitted after removing the old one.

Price is actually less then I would expect knowing Ferrari's pricing of some of their parts...

I was expecting almost double that, to be very honest!
