1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass Convertible (Bohica)
Last updated May 31, 2010
Currently its 330CI, 2 spd auto convertible. Shortly it will be home to a stroked 455 with the Tri-Carb set up shown in my profile pic. I have a T400 switch-pitch transmission to go in it that has a low gear set installed for 1st/2nd gear. This is a full manual transmission with no upshift capability except for you moving the lever. I'd like to keep it basically stock with a few resto mods including the Super Stock 1 wheels although in 17 inch size. I loathe trailer queens and plan to drive the poo out of it.
1970 455 block with Bulldog heads flowing approx. 345/270 cfm. Hydraulic roller in the high 240 range at .050. Low .600s lift. Eagle 4.5 stroker crank with a bore to be determined, 4.20 - 4.25. 1966 Tri-Carb intake that will be Extrude Honed and a trio of Barry Grant Demon carbs from their Six-Shooter series. MSD distributor. 1 7/8 headers with a 3" Magnaflow exhaust system. 3673 weight empty.
My old motor in a 1970 Cutlass pulled 12.40s in the quarter and high 7.90s in the eighth. Olds 'E' heads pocket ported by Mondello. 288 degree Crane cam, .488 lift.
Air Conditioning, Vacuum Gauge on console
