I need your help to id the engine size in my caddy that i have bought recently.
Its a 1980 coupe deville.
But the trick is this. It says 7.1 ltr 1980 on the rad... Not sure if its the size of the motor that it written or the year and make of the rad.
Other thing is that the engine barely fits in the compartment it self. Most of the hoses are just laying on top of the engine ( but i took care of them )
I Its a V8 for sure. They Painted the engine Blue for some reason, Thats why i cant id the year of model of the engine.
Can any one help me out .
I went to two shops and they won't tell me unless they research, but i am not going to let some mechanic charge me for some thing like that .....
Well the engine seems Very Powerfull.
I can take on my friends 1998 prelude vtech
I raced a 92 GT Mustang no problem
i mean i dont race but i wanted to see what i can do....WOW
my dad had a 1986 seville touring sedan and it didn't have that much kick.
Is it possible the engine has been replaced with an earlier 472 or 500? The 368 that came stock in those cars wasn't very powerful!
In 1979 the Deville and Fleetwoods had a 7.0 liter 425, which is more powerful than the 6.0 liter 368, but I don't know if you'd be racing Mustangs with it!
Well, the 368, 425, 472 and 500 are all the same size engines. They are all basically the same block, so size wouldn't be different!
That still doesn't mean it could be a 472 or 500 painted up in there. The 425's were a light blue, and the 472's and 500's were usually a dark blue.
The 425 had 180 HP and 320 lbs-ft. stock.
Yeh the engine is a light blue colour. I will get some pics in short time and put them on here. Hmmm it be cool if it was a 425, but i think its a little bit bigger. Let me tell ya it feels like it gots atleast 240+ HP man
it pulls the caddy like there is NO TOMORROW man . Just goes off the line. But i could be wrong.
Let me get somepics and i will let you guysknow soon.....
thanks for all your help...
