Not bad, not bad at all.

Old cars on the dyno - a new trend that we like a lot. Watching a restored (or sometimes original) vehicle from decades ago unleashing its full potential is something we don’t see every day as most classic car owners prefer to keep their treasures hidden from sunlight. But, after all, cars are made to be driven and it’s good to know what’s happening under the hood.

In general, a dyno run is like a doctor's inspection. The results reveal the overall mechanical condition of the engine and transmission and can tell us a lot of things. Here’s a very good example - an old Ferrari 348.

Stolen Ferrari Found After 26 Years At The Bottom Of A River

  Stolen Ferrari Found After 26 Years At The Bottom Of A River Reported stolen in 1994, a Dutch fire brigade stumbled across the wedge-shaped Italian car while performing training exercises. The year 2020 has been wild in more ways than one. To add to the madness, it seems like every other post is about the destruction of a Ferrari. In a short time span, we posted three different tragic stories regarding the rare Ferrari F40. Recently, an F40 was wrecked in Australia, another went up in flames in Monaco, and another one with a connection to Sadam Hussein was neglected and covered with sand including inside the engine (which has since been restored).

According to the video description, the car had several issues with the engine a year ago but most of them have been fixed in the last 12 months. Recently, all the little problems with the powertrain’s sensors were eliminated and the engine seems to be in good shape.

It was a 3.4-liter V8 that was offered for all versions of the supercar - the 348 Speciale, 348 Challenge, 348 GTB, GTS, and Competizione. Depending on the exact variant, the powertrain was good for somewhere between 296 horsepower (221 kilowatts) and 316 hp (235 kW) in the Competizione.

So, after almost 30 years on the roads and a comprehensive repair, how much power does it still produce? After hearing details about the car in the first half of the video, the second part shows a dyno run. More precisely, three dyno runs.

The highest achieved result is 268 horsepower (200 kilowatts) and 214 pound-feet (290 Newton-meters) of torque. Of course, these numbers are measured at the wheels, which means the output of the engine should be around 308 hp (230 kW) and 246 lb-ft (333 Nm). Not that bad for a 30-years-old car, right?
