    Hello all, can anyone recommend the ‘go to’ place to have a dry sump 308 engine rebuilt in the U.K.?

    I’m aware of the obvious Ferrari specialists, but hoping to find someone independent and brilliant.

    Engine is smoky and the time has come.

    Hi Alex

    Not sure of where you are or they count as a usual suspect but Mick @ QV London knows his 308 engines.

    I’d be interested to know this too! Having spoken to one ‘usual suspect’ it sounds like the actual work is often out sourced

    I have no real clue, but Harry Metcalfe used Ian Tyrell's Workshop to rebuild his Lamborghini Espada engine, and the videos from the YouTube series show all varieties of exotics and classics being worked on there. Definitely independent, possibly brilliant!

    Alex, if you fancy doing it yourself I could lend you the tools and give you advice and help (pro bono.) I’m in central London. I would offer to do it but am short of space and time. Have you done a compression and leak down test? You might just need the heads rebuilt and that I have space, parts and time for.

    Kevin White built some trick 308/328 engines for road and race use, he used to be a partner in Migliore Cars in Bromsgrove. Though by the look of their website he and Vic seem to have gone their separate ways.
