    I figured I'd ask it here that way someone else won't have to ask it.

    Ok, my 231 blew in my Regal and I have a guy w/an Olds sayin that his son put a Buick 455 in it( dunno outta what).

    How can I tell if this is REALLY a 455? What are the procedures/methods for determining this

    Apparently a lot of these links are dead. Something about the board rebuild must have killed them. I had a request to fix `em so here are the latest links to the most popular G-Body changes (IMHO):

    455 swap How To article:

    Bucket seat conversion:

    Frame braces

    12" brakes on the Regal

    Manual Steering

    Wiring Diagrams (Malibu but they're pretty close)

    ...any questions just let me know, I've been through all of these swapouts and done lots of :Dou:
