360 tune up help

Hi Guys I want to get my 03 Ferrari 360 spider ready for spring. I bought it last spring and have not spent any maintenance money on the car thus far. The belt service is due this Spring and I also want to change all of the fluids, replace the manual shifter bushing with the one from Hill. I did through a CEL last fall and the Reader indicated O2 left bank so I want to replace the sensors. When I peer into the engine I can see cracks in the green MAFS. Where should I buy parts from? I live in near Toronto Canada. Any tips or other recommendations that I should include is greatly appreciated. I don't mind investing money in the maintenance as I hope to enjoy the car for years to come. Thanks

Ricambi America is an excellent source for parts, ask for Daniel, and Daytona Auto Center Ltd in Toronto comes highly recommended for service, ask for Alex.

The Green MAFs?! Are you certain the faults you pulled related to O2 sensor readings indicate faulty O2's and not issues elsewhere, picked up by the O2's as affected fuel mixtures?

How many miles are on the car? Any leaks? How thorough were the previous services? The list of things to do while you're there can get long.

Thanks for the responses. 14,200 miles when I purchased it. PPI done by Ferrari - I was allowed in with my mechanic to watch and talk to the Ferrari mechanic. Put about 2,000 miles on it this past summer (almost all weekend drives - do not use it as a DD.) Car ran really well no problems other than CEL late in the season. Replaced the battery before storing it. When doing the belt service do I also do the bearings? Besides changing all of the fluids should I so anything else.

The bearings are one of those, "since we have it apart" things.

I just did my timing and aux belts and after 3.5 years and plenty of track time, the belts were perfect. The timing belts may have stretched 1/8" and the bearings were 'as new', but they got replaced.
