Thread: New engine for my winter project

    Well, many of you my have noticed that I have not posted as much this winter. There is a reason for that. After hearing about every one switching away from the olds 455 I decided to make one really fly. I hope to have it together by OP6 and see what this thing will do. The key element in this new rebuild is a set of brand new aluminum Olds cylinder heads. Not the overly glorified Edlebrock’s but the new ones from http://www.rocketracingperformance.com/ these heads will have 2.125 int. 1.68 exh. Valves and with there new style intake and raised but stock pattern exhaust pattern I will be able to keep my Bassett’s. I will have better pics of my engine when they become available.




    The best part is tat these new heads are very reasonable as far as price goes. I'll keep you all posted as to how they run. See you at OP6 L8

    Is it just my imagination, or did they include larger oil drainback passages?

    Yes biger drain, and price is very compairable to the Edlebrocks though I havn't got the finnals yet from these guys. Ohh did I mention Big Valves
