1992 Town Car Cartier & 2014 Accord LX MTX
I was thinking last night about Broughams, and the series of motors they've had: 425, 368, HT4100, 307, 305, 350. And I got to wondering why they never threw in the 4.9 to make it "Cadillac Exclusive" like they had pre 1986. My first idea was because the 305 and 350 provided adequate power (especially the 350) and they were easy bolt ins for that chassis. But when you think about it, the 4.9 makes much more power and torque than the 305, and the 4.9 makes 15 more hp than the TBI 350, and 25 less lb/ft of torque. I know that the HT4100 was made in transverse and longitudinal (sp?) configurations, would it be possible to mount the 4.9 in the longitudinal (sp?) way?
