Good afternoon all-this is my first post here . I have a 1970 GTO that is getting a 455 installed ('73 block casted in October 1972 with 6X heads). What alternator and power steering brackets do I need? I know the brackets have to be the same year but any advice? Thanks.
Hey I have come across a '76 Trans AM I am going to "restore" I'm not completely worried about keeping it original although I am keeping any original parts I would replace; heads, cams, etc....
Well I have the original 455 engine I need to have some work done on it, and I want to beef it up some as I know in '76 it took a huge power dive to about a 200hp engine. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or information on what kind of upgrades I could get on the engine (like aluminum heads possibly, or a better cam) and what kind of compression ratio I should get it set to. I'm under the idea that the original compression ratio is 7.6:1 which is pretty low, so what might be an ideal compression ratio? If anyone has any information that would be helpful to me that would be great.
i've had a 73 ventura with a 350 sitting in the shop a couple of years and today i bought a 455 from a 70 Bonneville. everything shows this YH block to be the 360 hp rated engine with 2 bolt main and it has the #15 heads. I have a set of 6x-8 heads from a 77 400 and wondered how low the compression is going to go if i run those heads. The 6x have the 2.11 valves with dual springs and i think they will flow better, but i would like to keep this 455 pushing 400 HP. I haven't decided on a cam yet until if find more info on which heads to run
