I see this HT4100 does it also go for the 4.9 what does HT stand for.

Just one of those things I never knew and am curios to find out.

My best guess is High Torque, or High Tech. but not sure.

If it is 4100 hundred only, uhm High Tow Bill's. Just kidding 4100 guys.

High Technology

Which, in 1982, it was with DEFI, on board diagnostics, fuel data center and all that good stuff.

I have heard/seen the 4.5 and 4.9 be reffered to as the HT4500/HT4900 In my FSM I have seen HT4900 a few times.... it sounds cool too...

But the truth is, the HT4100 was such a failure, that when Cadillac vastly improved it and made it into the 4.5, they wanted to try and get anything attachted to the HT4100 away... hence the heavy name change.

I gotta admit, I do like the sound of HT4100 better then say, 4.9....its unique.
