Pontiac 455 duet

The LeMans (on the left) has a mild, non-rebuilt 455 with ported & polished 6X heads, c. 9:1 compression, Edelbrock Performer intake, Holley 800 Street Avenger, Comp XE274 cam, making maybe 300-350 horsepower. The Grand Am (right) has a .030 over 455 with Edelbrock heads (87 cc chambers), 10:1 compression, same Comp cam but with 1:65 roller rockers, slightly better Exhaust (H-pipe), Edelbrock Performer RPM intake and Edelbrock 750 carb. About 500 horsepower at the flywheel. The heads make all the difference. The Grand Am has the Flowmaster American Thunder Exhaust system, which has the 50-series mufflers. LeMans has a Summit Exhaust system, which was cheap and went on nice & easy.

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.

Camaro Z28 messing with 455 GTO on the street
Late-Model Camaro Z28 with bolt-ons messing with a classic 455 swapped GTO. The GTO jams it and then one of the passengers thought they were being tailed by an unmarked B4C (special service police) Camaro holding a radar gun (video camera, lol) and you can notice the nervous and unsure look on his face as we roll beside, then his complete and total relief once he recognized a couple old pals in a regular Camaro, lol. (This LT1 Camaro made 280hp at the wheels and ran 13.1 at Mason Dixon Dragstrip) This footage was shot way back, many years ago, with an old junky analog camera, so apologize for the poor video quality.

1973 Pontiac LeMans - NED 08-Oct-2008
1973 Pontiac LeMans drag race video





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.





1976 Pontiac Trans Am with 455 testing out the new engine
In car video of a 1976 Pontiac Trans Am with a 455 in it. This has one of the comp cams extreme 276 cams in it. Probably the most potent cam I have used in any of my pontiac engines and still maintained excellent street manners. Unfortunately, one of the rod bearings did not hold up as well. The purpose of these runs was to try to get the car to blow up if it was going to. It has a slight noise in it that I couldn't figure out. Wound up being top rod bearing on number 7. Was torn down never to be assembled again. Car was awesome though. Sold to Volo auto sales in Chicago. They painted it and sold it as a 50th anniversary clone car for $20k more than they paid me for it.

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.
