Engine swap questions


Recommended Posts

That's one rare piece of Pontiac history.  Thankz for sharing.  Should be straight swap and bolt right up to your 350 turbo.  I would look at radiator size for cooling the bigger beast.  One major concern I have is that if the 301 is the original matching #'s engine to the car......KEEP IT!   Do you have any of the dealer paperwork?   Was this a Canadian edition?  Have heard of the Sprint but have never seen one. Thankz for the pic's.  I had a 74 Ventura N loved it.  That's when rumors of a dealership made the Pontiac equivalent of Chevy Yenco products.

So as far as I know, my father purchased it new from a dealer here in LaCrosse, WI and the Sprint package was already installed. From what I know of the Sprint, there was one dealer on the east side of WI that did the Sprint package upgrade if you wanted it. I've tried and tried to get official numbers on how many were produced to no avail. I intend to crate up and keep the 301 because it's definitely all numbers matching. I just want a little more giddy up and reliability to make driving it more fun. I think my biggest concern so far was if they were swap well and could use the same engine mounts.
