    Really interesting link to the rebuild of a group B Michelotto 308, a serious number of modifications including bulkhead access to timing belt, alternator area, tubular wishbones etc.

    https://www.bgmsport.com/ferrari-308-gtb-michelotto-group-b

    They may look like 308's but there is a massive amount of work to convert them into rally cars.

    They kept the K-Jet - I thought Group B rules were a little more lax than that

    Well she starts and runs, requires fuel cam optimisation session on rolling road but not too bad for a first guess.
