Most of the major upgrades I have done on my 308 have been covered in depth on Ferrarichat.com. Here are direct links to a few plus some that others have undertaken that I think are good reading: (all of these require registration and log in to see the pictures. Registration is free).

•Development of an extended shock eye to use QA1 shocks on the 308 without modification to the A-arms

•Installing an Electromotive distributorless electronic ignition system.

•Experiments with aftermarket 308 QV replica wheels by Superformance UK. (I loved them, but sold them when I found a deal on real magnesium QV wheels).

•Installing stainless steel brake lines.

•The mod all carb 308 owners should make: The Russ airbox mod. (A long read, but worth it.)
