The Kugelfischer pumps made for the Michelotto are specific to that car and only that car, and very few were ever made making conversion nearly impossible. The Kugelfischer system is sort of an 'on off' type thing anyway from what I have been told.
Getting 300bhp from a carb 308 that is streetable is insanely difficult, but it has been done on multiple occasions in race spec only engines. IIRC, 317bhp on one occasion.
On the streetable aspect of bhp i think you have a good point. Please find below the answer from Kari Mäkelä upon my request:
Thank you very much for your contact and your interest in our Ferrari 308 Rallycars.
You are right, it's best to build a replica for Historic rallying and not destroy an original historical car.
Our cars are also faster, easier to handle and have much more strong roll cage than old original ones.
We use as much modern technology as allowed by FIA to have the cars easy maintenance.
Steel and vetroresina bodied are both FIA group 4 homologated. Original vetroresina cars are only 30 kilos lighter than steel bodied.
That's why we change our own light weight body panels also on the vetro cars, this we save about 70 kilos.
We can modify the steel bodied cars to super lightweight kevlar / GRP bodied.
Minimum homologation weight is 940 kg but this is impossible to reach because of strong roll cage, our best cars are 970 kilos.
Max power of engine is about 320 Hp by Weber carbs.
When you buy a basic 308 GTB, be sure the car is an original dry oil sump engined version!!!! wet sump cars are not FIA homologated.
We can build a car for what ever budget, prices starting from 100.000 EUR up to 400.000 EUR
As an example the car we are building just now to my French client takes about 4000 workman hours, our labour is 70 EUR / hour.
It's best you come to visit on my workshop in Finland and we can discuss about your project timing and budget.
The best visit time would be on March or April 2011, then my French client's car would be complete.
