It is not a question of cutting corners. It is a different, in this case easier, way of accomplishing the same task. In many ways it is better not to take the engine out of the car. This is why Ferrari designed the 360 so that the belts could be changed more easily without removing the engine.Ferrariby30orbust said:you would have to be nutz to attempt to cut corners like this when servicing your ferrari! If you cant afford to do it as ferrari designed it to be done, then go buy a corvette. Just an observation.
