Pontiac Performance Tips from Butler Performance V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Certain engine builders specialize in specific
brands, and for Pontiac power, Butler Performance is in the forefront.
We visited Butler to get the lowdown on the latest in hi-po parts for
Pontiac V8s and to spec out a motor for project "Splitter." Here, David
Butler takes us through the shop and brings us up to speed on the latest in
PONTIAC - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY
405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS
who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more
optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac
rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60
degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect
that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but
the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it
would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great
song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).
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.

The first startup of my junkyard 400 in my firebird. Stay tuned for vids of
the turbo install.
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.

MORE PICS HERE!!!
NOT MY CAR!!! Just thought it was a cool video.
This beast sports a twin turbo 522cid
big block Chevy that screams out 1250hp on pump gas and a ridiculous 2000hp
on race gas! Ever go 0 to 150mph in 5 seconds -- Butch can. Butch and his
3700lb Pontiac cruise the local streets (with parachute, of course) and run
the quarter in 7 seconds. How many 70 year old men have the nuts to mash
the throttle on 2000hp? Not sure, but Butch sure does. The Pontiac was
transformed into this behemoth at Nelson Supercars.
