The engine also features the “Hot-rod” P6 cams, four higher performance Weber 44DCNF carbs with 34 mm venturis; Euro 308 headers and a Tubi stainless exhaust, all putting the power to the ground through a lightweight aluminum flywheel with a new AP clutch assembly. The brakes and suspension are improved thanks to 355 front calipers and Koni coil-over shocks with adjustable spring collars, upgraded adjustable anti-roll bars, solid suspension bushings and Boyd 5-spoke 16″ dia. modular billet aluminum wheels with excellent Bridgestone Potenza 205 X 55 X R16 front and 245 X 45 X R16 rear tires. The engine idles like a pussycat at 800 rpm, cruises down the road happily at 2,500 rpm and pulls like a freight train from 4,500 to the 7,600 rpm redline thanks to the 10.2 pistons, P6 cams and oversized Weber 44DCNF carbs. This 308 GTB sounds great, runs away from, out-handles and out-brakes 4-valve 308s, 328s and 348s.
