    CH: I have no idea. You might check with Pierce Manifolds in Gilroy, CA., or Geoff Ohland at Partsource. GTO Engineering would also be a good bet.

    It was pointed out that while this 275 GTB was equipped with 6 carbs in the past that in fact the original motor when new likely had just the standard 3 carbs set up. Apologies for any confusion this created regarding the factory build spec.

    Mine was the only 275 I have seen with the 40 DFI's. The snorkel air filter fits the carbs and is different from the cleaners on the 40 DCZ's. I questioned the originality, but then it is a Ferrari and we all know how religiously consistent Ferarri was.
    I never liked the snorkel cleaner, but I felt the 40 DFI's were easier to work with than the 40 DCZ' on my 250.GTE

    As well as a 4 snorkel air filter, the 365 GT 2+2 came with a single snorkel that draws air from the front of the car similarly to the Daytona.
