I think that it should be very possible to make the combo work. I am in the process of removing an Olds 455 from my Camino and putting a Ram Jet 502 in. The motor mounts and frame adapters for the Chevy block should be easy to find. It does turn out that the 455 seems to fit in an A body alot better than the 502. Are you interested in a 500 HP 455?

agreed, sure $ for $ the 502 is probably going to make a bit more power...but a BB Chevy powered Olds just doesnt have the same cool factor as seeing an Olds powered Olds.. same goes for Buick, Pontiac etc.

A honda civic is not worthy of a 502.

I agree.

Although I'm guilty of plopping a Chevy in a cutlass myself(350 in an 82 supreme) I would rather have a 455 any day.

the 71 olds 350 is a very stong motor, you can rebuild that thing for a strong street /track runner...small turbo would also be complementing.

i vote for the olds motor in the olds. i love 455,s i have a buick 455 and i love the torque.

the best thing about getting parts are the road trips you take to get them, gas up a pickup and head south!

I've got 425hp 350 in my 1969 Cutlass. That's approaching big block numbers. And, the car is 100-150lbs lighter than a big block car.

Putting the 502 in an Olds might be a real pain, from what my engine builder told me. Everything on a Chevy is on the opposite side of the car from an Olds (i.e. fuel lines, starter location, etc.)
My engine builder happens to be an old-school Olds guy, so he might be a little biased...

you are correct, its a bigger pain to put a chevy in there than it would be to put a 455. the 455 is almost a bolt in.

All you really have to do to fit a 455 in an Olds A-body (apart from checking valve cover clearances) is to change out the motor mounts & mount pads. The 455 bolts in lower than a 350.
