Re: Buick vs Olds vs Pontiac vs Buick
Buick engines sure do run good! I also like a good rocket engine. Never liked poncho motors. Chevies are easy to build, and cheap, but they don't make the torque of a good 90 degree block. 472/501 caddies are torque monsters, but less aftermarket support than Buicks, even. For parts availability, the rockets are your best bet. Buicks need some longevity improvements, better oiling and such, and many of the blocks were weak, especially the earlier ones. Ford never made a motor that I would be proud of.
No, its not a chevy motor
'71 Skylark, street/strip beater w/JW and T/A goodies!
(JW prepped 462 short block, ported T/A Stage 1 TE heads w/stage 3 valves, 1050 Dominator, Super Scavenger headers, 3400 stall TH400, runs on pump gas, and leaves brown skid marks on the passenger seat.)
