Thanks for all the responses to my post a couple of weeks ago. I have the Dino with 3 recently demised cylinders. The car just doesn't perform to well with 3 out of 6. What were they thinking when they designed this engine. I swear she has a frown on her face as she sits idle in my garage. I received a fair amount of response regarding California ferrari mechanics qualified to do the rebuild. Interestingly enough, the best option was one I found on my own. The car is being flatbed carried to Tijuana, Mex. next week. Found a guy who works on ferraris that speaks pretty good english. He said he could turn the car around in about 2 weeks for 5,000.00. This is alot cheaper and faster than the California shops. Seriously, I'm really not that insane. The car is going to be worked on by Jack Bianchi in Santa Barbara. Spoke with him, Kevork Hazarian and a guy with Patrick Ottis. They all sound quite capable, but Santa Barbara is closest to my home. I wish it was going to be 2 weeks and 5 grand. Probably more like 12-15g's. Can't wait to get my baby back, better than new. It'll be a few months, but I'll be seeing you on the back roads and coastal highways of the Central Coast. Thanks again. I'll keep you posted.
