Protective boots now available

Here's a F355 that's in for a host of problems...and one can't help but notice that every single protective boot is torn. In total 20 boots were replaced, 40+ connectors were successfully cleaned with Stabilant-22 and 2 connectors ultimately were replaced. Although the latest design gold-plated connectors are still in the supply chain, the OEM-style rubber boots have been not been available for years. Recently, in conjunction with one of our close technology partners, we are now having these rubber boots remanufactured. They fit most Ferraris from the 348 through the 575. Email for details or quantity pricing.

Well done David! Any chance those new boots will be made from something a little more resistant to engine bay temps, like silicone perhaps?

Or is it still the same material as the original boots?

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

Looks good, David. Those old ones have definitely seen better days.
