I had a Fiat Dino 2400 GT that had a frozen/stripped drain plug for the oil sump. Luckily, the oil temperature sensor was right on the bottom of the sump, so that is how I changed the oil. Too chicken to try and remove the real one 35 years or so ago. So yes, if you leave that sensor out, there is a pretty good hole in the wet sump for Ferrari V6s and early V8s. The oil will come out just about as fast as you can pour it.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
