We are working on that. It is coming to Georgia from Arizona so it may take a few weeks. It still needs to be crated and prepared for shipping.
I have a few Ferrari projects and I am ready to get started. Stay tuned, this could get fun.

I figured there had to be a Ferrari work will pay for it plan. That will be a nice addition to the shop. And now that you've played with DM6 a bit I'm sure you've got a good sense that contrary to popular believe more is not better if it comes with bigger ports.....there is good and there is everything else. On street engines the smallest port you can hit the hp target with seems best.....even if a bigger port would hit the target easier or exceed target, that just shifts everything to the right (higher rpm) and you loss power where you use the engine most. A buddy used to tell me about the smiles this customers had after walking away during the first roll-on "race" with there buddies. Good street engine vs an engine that makes the same or more hp and would probably peak well after redline.......which is the battle I'm fighting with are v12

Yes, I am looking forward to finding some interesting things. The guy I bought it from has a wealth of knowledge and the trends to new port work is very exciting. I think on old heads, there is quite a bit of room for improvement, even if it is only minor changes, I think there are bigger gains to be had. Seat profiles and port pockets are very different today then 20 years ago. So a fifty year old head has a ton of room for improvement.

Carobu has before/after flow numbers for a lot of older ferraris. They seem to know what they're doing so that might give you a good idea how much gain is available on some models.

The 308 ports are kind or hour glass which I just don't understand...the choke is at about the manifold flange. So weird the really teams were taking 208 heads wirh tiny valves and opening the flamge area for the 308 intake to end up with a nice taper that flows and tunes right......but I know a couple places just throwing in bigger intakes valves and claim big gains while a place i trust is saying, yeah the port's buggered but buy the time they open it enough to work on a 4liter they can get it pretty good....with the same valve size the just change the valves guys use I think. On the 4V engines i was pretty comfortable promising 15% gain, 20% is pretty easy if the stock CIS intake goes in the trash.

Anyway....lots of fun to be had

I understand that comment. I might be opening a huge can of worms.
