Was having a look at some Ferrari sites, when I came across this picture of a 355 engine - tell me what you think of this picture...

This is the F355 engine configuration from 1996 to 1999. The 2 air intake ducts join into one single air-flow meter and then split again to feed the headers. In pre-1996 engines the 2 air intake pipes are seperated from the 2 air filter box and so have 2 seperate airflow meter.

The pre 1996 engines have slightly better power output ( and they were still used on the F355 Challenge cars past 1996) but obviously need 2 airflow meters to adjust rather than the "convenient" 1 unit. :)

what's the weird part?
Well maybe it's just me - but it looks like someone's attacked it with a can of silver spray paint!!

OK - on the other hand - maybe I was just having a bad day :nuts:
