Olds 355 (Part 1)
Original Olds 350 short block from my 1970 Cutlass that is now a 355ci
thanks to machining and forged pistons. The engine should have plenty of
power with just the bolt-ons. Stay tuned for more updates.

Turbo "S71" Olds Engine Build Video BTR Performance Part 6 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com/enginedvd - This is part 6 in a multi-part series
covering the custom 422 cubic-inch stroker engine build performed by master
engine builder Bill Trovato at BTR Performance for our turbocharged 1971 Olds project called the "S71".
This time, Trovato shows us how to properly torque the Edelbrock aluminum
heads using ARP fasteners and molybdenum lube. Although this video series
features and Olds engine, the valuable, race-proven techniques shown by
Trovato apply to any performance engine build.

Olds 350 motor running out of car
This is the motor that I put into my 1985 Delta 88, replacing the blown
307. It's from a 1968 Olds Delmont. It is a 350 Rocket motor, 395558 block,
5 heads, and has a TH 400 tranny bolted up to it.
How you start it out of the car you All you gotta do is run a fuel line to
the carb and the other end to a fuel can with about a gallon of gas. Run a
battery to the disturbitor, and touch the wires together for the dis and
the starter and if it runs, it will fire right up
Carb'd 461 Big Block - 1965 Oldsmobile - /BIG MUSCLE
Say hello to the first Oldsmobile we've ever featured on /BIG MUSCLE. This
1965 Cutlass F-85 has been cloned into a wicked 442 by it's owner. The goal
was simple - take a car that was a bit outside the norm and slowly
transform it into a kick-ass cruiser that has the ability to be flogged on
the autocross. With a carb'd 461 big block under the hood, it's big,
different and one of the most overlooked machines from the muscle car era.
