This one is a fun one… We’ve got not one, not two, but three sets of wheels to test fit on the Ferrari 308… none of which will be the final wheels for the car. However, we’re likely to learn a lot about what fits and what doesn’t. So, up first: a set of Volk TE37s, an all-time classic and absolutely true to the Time Attack spirit of the build.

After more than four long months of waiting, my made-to-order body kit for the 308 GTBi has finally arrived stateside thanks to my friends at Mastermind North America. Surprisingly, or perhaps not so, I went with a Liberty Walk (LBWK, LB Performance) kit due to the fact that I find it to be the best looking option out there.

I finally got my hands on the Honda K24’s intermediate shaft, which has allowed me to finally center up the engine.

Well, there’s no turning back now… I’ve taken a Sawzall to the chassis of the 1981 Ferrari 308 GTBi… We needed room for axles on the turbo Honda K24 we’re swapping in, and some tubes simply needed to go. If you had asked me years ago if I’d be cutting up a vintage Ferrari, I’d have said you were nuts, but here we are… With those out of the way, though, we’re ready to start on engine mounts, now that we have some dry sump pan dimensions in hand.

Who needs an interior, anyway?! Today, I’m ripping the guts out of the Ferrari 308 GTBi, beginning with the gorgeous factory seats. I’ve bought a set of Bride Zeta IIs from Japan for the build, and have decided an F40-esque interior is more my pace. Out comes the carpet and the sound deadening… it’s all just unnecessary weight. Soon, we’ll begin the quest to find the “right” replacement carpet, and decide just how much of the interior should go back in.
