Pontiac 350 - 350 Horsepower For Less Than $500.00
A short video describing the modifications done to the 65,000 original mile Pontiac 350 engine in my 1975 Formula. Using heads, cam, pushrods, rocker arms and an intake that I had laying around, this Pontiac 350 developed 353 horsepower and 385 lbs/ft of Torque, for less than $500.00 invested.
Chevy, Olds, Pontiac and Buick V8 engines are not the same!
Evidently a segment of the automotive enthusiast population does not
believe that the four main GM divisions had their own versions of a V8. In
addition there may be people who simply never knew that fact.
In this video I show photos of a 350 cid engine from Buick, Oldsmobile,
Pontiac and Chevrolet and highlight the differences in each. Buick and
Pontiac V8 engines went out of production in 1980, Oldsmobile's in 1990 and
of course the Chevy versions lasted a lot longer because they were cheaper
to produce and easier to smog/mpg certify.
I challenge anyone to video themselves removing a Chevy SBC head and then
installing it on a Pontiac, Olds or Buick engine.

550 torque @ 5800rpm
535hp @ 4000rpm
For those of you paying attention and noticed the numbers aren't the same
on the screenshot, its because we made another few runs, but didn't tape
them. We'll upload a pic soon.

Sehr Performance Machine / Ryan's 350 Pontiac
Ryan dropped off his 350 Pontiac long block along with a set of 400 Pontiac
Ram Air cylinder heads, an Edelbrock intake and his Holley carb. He wanted
us to put it together for his '69 Firebird. His engine came to us with
blow-by issues from a broken piston. First off the cylinders had to be
relieved to clear the valves on the Ram Air heads. The heads were milled
to reduce chamber size and valve to block clearance was checked one more
time. All of his parts were inspected and magnafluxed to be sure we were
starting off with serviceable parts and the clearances were brought back to
low side of factory tolerances, a new custom COMP cam and a distributor
curve kit were added along with some other touches, the engine was painted
Pontiac Blue and bolted to our Dyno. Ryan is very happy with
the end results and is looking forward to getting it back in his car and
having some fun with it.
The First time my 400 Big Block got started.
PONTIAC - The Glory Years! Part 1 of 5
(1956-93). Some great basic Pontiac history, along with the CARS and PEOPLE
(Bunkie Knudsen, John Delorean, Jim Wangers, Pete Estes, etc) who made
Pontiac great in those years. In 1956 Bunkie Knudsen was hired as Pontiac's
General Manager. He was told by GM "Turn Pontiac around in 5 years or the
division is gone". Within about a year he quickly assembled a great team.
Knudsen was fortunate enough to pick up engineer John Delorean from Packard
when that company closed, Delorean later became the father of the GTO and
MANY Pontiac Innovations. Knudsen was also fortunate enough to lure a
brilliant "Olds Rocket V8" engineer away from Oldsmobile---Pete Estes who
helped the Pontiac V8 breath as well as it could.

Pontiac Banshee A Longer Look
The Banshee was a vision for what the Firebird could become. Of course,
this concept car could never be built exactly, too low on the road and it
wouldn't pass the safety and crash tests, but it was exciting. It
demonstrated that the problem with GM cars didn't sit on the designers'
shoulders. They were more than capable of dreaming up engaging and fun
vehicles that would set imaginations on fire.
