1968 Olds Cutlass S Dyno
This is the original numbers matching engine that has just finished being rebuilt, broke in and tuned on the Dyno, and is now being installed back in the car with American Racing Headers. Also, putting in a new clutch, rebuilt power steering box, new 2 1/2 stainless Exhaust pipes all the way back with new mufflers, new shocks, and I'm switching from 3.08 to 3.42 gears. It went on the Dyno twice, but I was only there on the second day, and it had a 348.6 HP and 378 TQ. My game plan on this build was to keep it stock looking on the outside, but beef up the internals. The only place it will not look stock is that I am going to be using the American Racing Headers. I'm using the stock iron intake, but am jetting the 7028250 Q-jet to W-31 specs. I'm keeping the #5 heads, went with 2.000/1.625 valves, had a 5 angle grind with light bowl work done, and went with Dave's HEI ignition. I went with a full roller setup, filled the heat riser, and welded the center divider. I'll get the compression figures, but it ended up close to 10:1.
