32v DOHC, yup.... I have heard the Quad8 is actually the Northstar in its raw form... then I have heard it isn't... but either way, the Quad8 paved the way for GM's DOHC V8's... as well as the other guys... much like the Quad4 did for the 4bangers...I~LUV~Caddys8792 said:Wow a Quad 8...That sounds badass :cool2:
Interesting stuff to know
Do you think that GM should have cut Buick instead of Oldsmobile?
Wow, can you post some information on the Turbo 215? I would love to learn about that!N0DIH said:I forgot on the hydromatic, but yes, Olds pioneered a lot.
Each car division at GM has areas (well, used to) that they did the chief development work in. Buick, Turbo (but Olds started it in 1960 with the Turbo 215 aluminum V8, which was the 215/300 was a "Oldsmobuick" as they did joint dev on it), Pontiac, heads/airflow, etc. I see a lot of Pontiac's work on the LT1, which makes sense for its good low end power and torque from a Chevy.
Oh, Pontiac came up with Reverse Cooling in 1955 in production.
Nothing new. People B.S.ing about 1/4 mile times. If it ever does run that kind of time it won't be very streetable.N0DIH said:If this is any idea....
Almost too fast for a 403 with only those mods.... Must be major mods on them....
