THE 350 OLDS IS A VERY GOOD ENGINE, AND WILL RUN VERY WELL. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF A RAMROD 350?
FACTORY HOTROD 350 OLDS INSTALLED IN 68-70 CUTLASS, THIS LITTLE DUDE WOULD REV TO 6500 RPM WITH HYDRAULIC LIFTERS, AND RUN 14.0S OR QUICKER WITH VERY LOW GEARS. EDELBROCK MAKES PERFORMER RPM HEADS, OR HOMEBREW YOUR OWN.
JUST LIKE ANY OTHER V-8, CAM, COMPRESSION, ECT AND IT WILL RESPOND.
