  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

The 301 was originally bolted to a THM350 non-lockup transmission (sometimes called the CBC350 transmission) or the THM350C (lock-up converter) transmissions in the '81 Trans Ams. However, it retained the stock Pontiac transmission bolt pattern, so theoretically it can bolt to any BOP bolt-pattern transmission. Performance wise, however, the 301 (even the turbo variant) does not generate enough power to warrant anything above the THM350.



All PontiacV8 engines have the starter on the driver side. Chevy engines have the starter on the passenger side.
