No way no how... not enough room.... unless you want to cut the shock towers and drive with a teleskope and of course make all custom mounts to fit a horrible GM motor in there.....idontlikeyou said:Just a theory at the moment until more is known about the fit. I have the car, my step brother has the motor, we both have some knowledge. So far it looks like an idea to say the least. 455 Rocket Thunderbird, what do you think?
Sure. It's an idea.idontlikeyou said:So far it looks like an idea to say the least. 455 Rocket Thunderbird, what do you think?
he mentioned rocket thunderbird, any pontiac fan knows that a rocket motor is an olds motor.....JR Tigerstar said:

CAR CRAFT 455c.i.d. 501 HP PONTIAC
Olds,pontiac,Buick whats the difference? it's just another name for chevy. Besides pontiac never would have had any good engines if they weren't olds motors. Look at the "bandit" the best motor they put in em was the 403 "olds" engine.he mentioned rocket thunderbird, any pontiac fan knows that a rocket motor is an olds motor.....
I sais that because even if the engine itself was different 90% of the parts would interchange.tailwind said:Pontiac 455 > Olds 455.
To the guy that said they're all the same...educate yourself. As said earlier, Pontiac made all their own engines until the early 80s when their motor division was axed. Buick, Olds, and Chevy also did.
I always thought the 403 was the best bandit motor But I have never owned one of these cars. A friend of mine owns a few and they like the 403 the best over the 400 they have. Like you said tho could be a matter of opinion. I know there 403 runs out of power in the low 4000 range. It does pull hard through the 2500-3500 range. If you can get the car to hook that isNot necessarily. GM didn't start mixing engines until the 80's. From the 50's to the 70's, a Chevy was a Chevy, an Olds was an Olds, and a Pontiac was a Pontiac. And the genuine Poncho 400 was much better than the Olds 403. You could tell which T/A had what engine by the shaker scoop. The 403's said "6.6" or "400" (depending on the year). And the Poncho 400's said "HO 6.6". The 403's cost less than the actual 400s. If I remember correctly. And of course these are my opinions.
