Ferrari F1 312B2 Dyno Video

  • Published: 17 March 2014
  • This was a standard rebuild on an existing engine platform with no additional modifi cations for power. The primary consideration was reliability and clean running. When we originally received this engine for rebuil (we have done it twice now over a period of years), it had broken the timing gears so we didn't have a baseline dyno run. After the fi rst rebuild, it was run on a chas- sis dyno (our original DTS engine dyno couldn't handle the quick rpm changes) and produced 289 HP @ 9000 rpm. After the second rebuild (re-fresh), we ran it on our new Superfl ow Powermark dyno and saw a defi nite improvement (365 HP @ 9,800). Most of the improvement was due to fuel curve tuning on the Lucas mechani- cal injection system and ignition optimiza- tion. While not the most powerful vintage F1 engine, it has been very reliable and smooth.

        Kinda sad actually. My 03 z06 vette makes more hp and torque stock and doesn’t piss off the neighbors dogs. But it doesn’t spin10k and cost 3700usd for a basic turn up. Don’t own one anymore and never will. The Italians always have a flare for under achievement with a lots of noise.

            Just read through the thread regarding valve springs. Glad to see they worked out!

            Going through a similar process on a different engine and, like you, had a bear of a time finding the right rate.

                            1st time I saw a can of WD 40 spray lubricant Feb 67 I think the throttle slide was sticking on a Repco V8, a mechanic produced this magic spray freed it up.

                              Very important to point out that it's not how much power an engine produces that matters - it's how it makes you FEEL.

                              Which is why today's all-electric-powered hypercars with tremendous performance figures will always be... meh.

                                its the torque produced, is what matter but an electric motor based engine sure does help you reach high speeds or torque faster than a combustion engine.

                                It seems that these Uber high revving F-1 engines get power from extraordinary RPM limits. A torque rating of 197 pound feet is modest even by stock family car ratings. I do realize these are not drag race cars.

                                        If this really was an F1 engine, see what Fulvio said. It was rebuilt TO LAST, probably destined for vintage/historic races and won't have to be rebuilt every few hours. Wise up, people.

This company is tuning this motor at a much lower RPM and output so that the owner can drive his 312B2 and have fun and not worry about his handbuilt, one of a kind, irreplaceable engine suddenly disintegrating into small chunks of super expensive debris while he does it :)
