Mark- From the stuff you have fabricated, all you really need is the transaxle and you could fabricate the rest. I think the torque on a Maranello V12 would eat a Boxster transaxle. Both are over 400 ft lbs and the Boxsters did not have enough torque to pull the fuzz off a dandelion.
Here are the similar transaxles on the 456M and 575M, both with good 6 speed transmissions and rear ends for high torque applications. The Maranello and Enzo transaxles share a lot of parts, by the way.
Note the V12 transaxles tend to be more lengthy, while the DCT transaxles are shorter, but more bulky.
Incidentally, the California was also available with a 6 speed manual transaxle, so some of those extraneous parts are where the clutch goes on the manual version. I think about 10 were made, which means that was a waste of Ferrari's money and they are rarer than hen's teeth.
