    Default The crazy world of Ferrari spares pricing

    458 engine rebuild - amazed to see this new crankshaft was actually close to what it should cost

    Looks like a Chambon / Capricorn made item to me and surprised at the reasonable cost.
    Needs two new rods also, new rod bolts throughout of course, bearings etc.

    A 430 motor with direct injection and some new elements in the cam timing area but otherwise largely the same...

    Moral of this story...?
    Don’t be a dick and thrash your car from cold before it’s up to temp and also don’t leave it for six months without turning it over and then hammer it around...

    Some clown on eBay wants more for a used set of 599 GTO wheels with 7 year old tyres on (junk) than a factory fresh set from eurospares

    Where do they get the valuations from?

    Not sure...the new engine components are really cheap, for Ferrari.

    I think they hope an idiot will come along and pay a stupid price for them. Sadly I think they’re often right.

    £1100 plus Vat for a 458 crank. According to Eurospares a 360 crank is £6086.38 plus VAT....Now that is an absolute bargain!

    I need a new fuseboard for my 550, which is unique to that model. Everywhere I've tried for the official part wants £1900 - and they are all suspiciously close in price.

    For 25 year old tech, that's just a nonsense

    I was really surprised when I priced everything up a couple of years ago - it made my future engine project a relative bargain. It's also made me rest easy knowing that if anything goes catastrophically wrong with the engine, it's pretty cheap to sort.

    Agree but puts lie to the line that “when you buy a Ferrari you pay for the engine, the rest is free”.

    Engine parts are almost reasonable for the Maserati / Ferrari engined units

    My 6k comment was tongue in cheek....a 360 rebuild based on that could be ruinous (for me anyway).

    If a 458 crank is 1k I’d buy one now before they are 10k. It’ll probably do better than money in the bank.

    I was referring to the 430/458 prices for the F136. The 360 crank is definitely not cheap
