F430 engine banks
This page is a chapter in the book F430.
Very often, when you get an error code, it will refer to a bank number.
I realised that quite often, there was some confusion where bank 1 and 2 is situated. I hope this picture will help.
On the RHS, there is bank 1 with cylinders going from 1 to 4 (front to rear).
On the LHS, there is bank 2 with cylinders going from 8 to 5 (front to rear).
I added also the ignition order :
1. Cylinders 1 – 8
2. Cylinders 3 – 6
3. Cylinders 4 – 5
4. Cylinders 2 – 7
Ignition coils reference : BOSCH single ZS-K-1X1E
Spark plugs : NGK PMR8B
The second picture is a nice front view of the F430 engine where the accessory belt can be easily seen.
