SWB’s deserve hot engines and this is one. Designed by CAROBU for maximum street performance on pump gas, the owner was very happy with the results once the engine was installed in the car. Short of a GTO, this is the best street/track combo in a 250 series Ferrari. Note that the torque doesn’t peak until 6,400 rpm! This engine will pull 8,000 rpm with ease.
