The Ferrari FF has the largest capacity road-going Ferrari engine ever produced: a 6,262 cc (6.3 L; 382.1 cu in) naturally aspirated direct injected 65° V12, which produces 660 PS (485 kW; 651 hp) at 8,000 rpm and 683 N·m (504 lb·ft) of torque at 6000 rpm.
I was wondering how they power the accessories with the spline drive on the front of the crank dedicated to the front axle's gearbox... Looks like they power the serpentine belt with that other shaft to the left (when looking at the engine from the front). Interesting stuff.
I am just at the rebuild stage of an FF engine with exactly the same issue. x2 bent conrods + x1 new cylinder liner. Unless this engine was revving high at the time the water went in there shouldnt be any more damage than mine. Amazingly the two new conrods were under £100 GBP ($150) each and the liner not much more. Very simple to change. I have also found the timing to be very straightforward to reset... just an amazing engine brilliant engineering and a delight to work on.
Oh good news is that thanks to my perseverance Ferrari have found the Torque settings .. long story...
So if anyone needs two for that dual screw power boat i have he second one for you :0)
Wonder how you bend a rod on a Ferrari with DCT? Hard to over-rev one with all the nannies watching. .
I am dramatically underqualified technologically speaking and demonstrating it by this question; but do not all our [later] Ferraris have rev limiters that should prevent this? Or is the cause other than exceeding the dreaded redline?
Fluids simply don't compress. So, if the engine sucks in a significant quantity of water due to a low intake tract, the rev limiter isn't even part of the equation...Ever notice on the Range Rover safari vehicles the "snorkel" sticking up high almost at roof level? The purpose is to suck in air versus water if they happen to be transversing a stream. Evidently on the FF, the air intake is a tad low.
