One Exotic Monday!

One Exotic Monday!

A few weeks back we received a call from a new client that happened to be running the operation for Gotham Dream Cars in Chicago. They were in a bit of a jam since their Ferrari F430 and Lamborghini Gallardo both needed some attention before the next event coming up in 4 days.

First up was the Gallardo, in for a stalling issue. Using our factory Lamborghini diagnostic equipment we saw that there was a fault for engine speed plausibility. Being that it’s an E-Gear there are three possible sensors that could cause this fault. Two on the back of the trans, and one main one on the side of the block. The initial complaint was that after the car would stall, it wouldn’t start back up right away. Keeping that in mind, it seemed highly likely that the main crankshaft position sensor was the culprit but since we were short on time we recommended replacement of all three.

Next up was the F430 clutch! As you can see below these cars are driven like they are supposed to be. This is definitely not something we see every day but when we do, it makes us smile. Keeping that in mind, we really wanted these cars to look 100% better than they did when they came in. Looking at the after pictures, I’d say it was a success.

    Great job!
    Does the Leonardo all for the necessary clutch PIS adjustments?

    What’s the average price of an F430 clutch job if I supply all the parts?

    The tool allows you to reset and adjust properly. If you’re supplying parts, I would expect to pay $3k-4k for labor.

    Interesting. Less than a year ago I remember Michael Marzano, an FMU employee at the time, saying, well I’ll quote him, “If you supply the parts, you should be looking at around $1,500-$1,600 in labor. “

    My apologies, I actually just looked back and was looking at the wrong invoice when I went off of that number. $1,500-$1,600 is exactly right.
