wow, there is some great knowledge here on those engines. I have owned some Olds and a couple 330s. I had a 64 Cutlass with the 290 horse and 4 speed. It would beat any of the 295-300 horse chevys around, although it couldn't touch a 340 mopar. The valve springs seemed real weak and Olds are known for some oiling and valve train problems that need taken care of. I've always heard the 330 block had a higher nickel content than other engines in the same family. I've also read that the 69-70 350 heads flow real good, later ones need the smog bump ground out of the exhaust
