My Other Oldsmobile

Few Pictures of the car as it sits today:



as well as how the 442 sits, as a table





What I started out with a few days ago:


and some progress:



A mockup with the Modified Performer intake


add a 1" plate and carb


and the oil pan bolted on



This is my "budget" build that I started about a month ago. Rockers, Rods and all that just came in so I've gotta install all that good stuff. The 442 is down for a while, so I had to find something to tinker with, and it turns out this will be quicker than the 442 was and I've only spent about 4500 including the car. I bought the car 8 years ago when I was 14 and its been stored basically ever since until this year because I thought I had to give it some love.

Let me know what you think (I know it's not a Ferd, I'm sorry)

Specs:
1970 F2 Olds 455 Block
Edelbrock Performer RPM Heads & ARP Bolt Kit
Mondello JM 22-25-10 Cam - 274/280 .512/.523
Harland Sharp 1.6 Ratio Full Roller Rockers
Trickflow Chromemoly 3/8 in. 8.200 Pushrods
Edelbrock Modified Performer RPM Intake
Pypes 2.5" X-Pipe

things to get still:
Headers
Rearend (taking the 442's old one)
Radiator and Fans
and the engine accessories (fuel/water pump)

Re: My Other Oldsmobile

Very sweet. I really want to build an engine, just for the sake of building one, to get experience, because I have never built one. Good luck. I like 442s and Cutlasses.

It ran strong, but didn't have the power I wanted so I'm taking what I learned from the 442 build and putting it in this one to make it better.

The 442 will be better built, low compression so I can add a little turbo in there. Just finished pricing and parts and things. Now gotta wait for the rest of the money.

Re: My Other Oldsmobile

You are the ****... I've heard so many people around here try to bash Edelbrock CONSTANTLY and I love seeing people use their products and going back and rubbing it in their faces.


Sounds like a very streetable, but torquey combo. Nice setup.. What kind of Carb are you running?

Not sure yet. I've got a Holley 750 (thats the mockup in the pictures) but probably will be using a 850 Street Avenger or maybe a 850 Demon, not sure.

I should be well over 500 lb-ft to the wheels, probably closer to 550. Horsepower I'll probably be a bit under 500 but oh well.

As for people bashing Edelbrock, I don't mind, everyones got their own opinion. I find Edelbrock parts to work well for me and on top of that, besides really expensive set-ups they're the only company that does anything for Big Block Oldsmobiles.

Re: My Other Oldsmobile

I wasn't trying to knock Edelbrock at all... Nothing but good to say here, just have a few locals whining about it. Big block power FTW!
