I got my F355 with 22K miles in June of 2001 at which time it had a 30K engine service., this december we are doing a major with 40K miles on the clock Why? Well, since the last major it has done 32 track events. As one who drives to the track, drives on the track, and drives home; reliability is paramount. But the car was giving all the signs it should be looked at. The first visible symptom was the characteristic whine at cold startup of tensioner bearings that are about to die. The second was missing oil. As we shall se in a couple of frames, it was good we got in there and took a look. This first picture is the drivers rear quarter of the engine.
