Any pontiac engine will bolt in without changing the trans but if it needs to be built chevy may still come in cheaper.
Here we go. SOMEBODY had post about how the almighty SBC is the ONLY solution to any problem...
I do agree, even as an Olds guy, that a Pontiac 455 in a Pontiac just feels better.
And you're right. Olds motors are worthless crap. Please send them all to me so I can rid the world of this menace...
