Ghibli engine rebuild

Hi Guys, I`m the proud owner of a 2016 Ghibli 3.0 petrol which I purchased with a damaged engine , I need a workshop manual ( I`m happy to pay a reasonable price for this ) and a good parts source to repair this, Can anyone steer me in the right direction, I`m located in New Zealand, Thanks in advance.

unfortunately, to my knowledge, maserati's online portal is the only place i know of for any sort of manuals right now.
also, engine internals ie. pistons, rings, etc are not obtainable as far as i know/have experienced.

Ghibli engine rebuild

Hi and thanks for your response, I purchased a manual in CD Rom format form `repairmanualnow` in Lithuania, It hasn`t arrived yet but I will let you know of the quality when it does. The engine has seized three big ends and a main bearing, it doesn`t look too bad but I will take to the engine rebuilders to give me their opinion, I assume that they won`t be able to do much until they get the correct specifications. Are these engines or their internals (crank, rods etc) the same as any Jeep/Chrysler models like their Diesel counterparts?

How is your project coming along. It would be great if you could document/photo the job along the way.

the block is a pentastar block, but it is designed and milled by maserati/ferrari. the internals are shared no where else as far as i know.
FCA doesn't run any other twin turbo pentastar engines among CDRJ so...
again, dealership wise, internal parts are unobtainable.

Not really a Pentastar block. It's 2019 and this bullshit rumor, started back in 2012 by Allpar, based on some speculations, still spreads, even on this forum.

I was looking through the Scuderia Car Parts link above, and though it looks like most everything is available there I did identify at least one thing that seems to be missing, Main Caps.

Any idea what happened / where the damage might be?

odd since it looks identical to jeep v6's, down to the pentastar on the front cover.
the block yes, as a solid unmilled untouched aluminum block.
designed by maserati, machined and assembled by ferrari.
