Mods for “HOTRED”

the 400 engines had oiling problems,& mine spun a bearing at 3000 rpm. GM refused to admit that they have a problem, so I found a 455 (yc) that had been rebuilt,and did an engine swap at 22,000 miles. Many years later,I read an article in Hotrod magazine that suggested, if wanted, a 455 would make over 500 hp,if a few parts were added.They said to use Edelbrock heads,intake,carb,more radical hyd cam & headers,,so I did that including a copy of the Ram air IV cam from Crane,Harland Sharp roller rockers,Hedman headers and an 800 cfm edelbrock carb,Edelbrock rocker covers and air filter were added for appearance, and I also added a Moroso 7 qt pan with their oil pump pick up

Mods for “Bandit”

None special mods ,its great as it is!!!
