Because of the name, it had better run as good as it looked! My brother had saved the engine and rear end from his 1977 Oldsmobile 442 that was totalled in an accident, and we rebuilt these (with some modifications) and installed them in DONUTRUN. The 455 was bored .030" to 461 cubic inches. TRW Forged 10.5 :1 compression pistons were used. A Comp. Cams Xtreme Energy.541/.544 high lift camshaft with Comp. Cams hydraulic lifters and roller rockers were used. Factory Olds “big valve” C code cylinder heads were used with hardened valve guide seats and Comp. Cams valve springs to work with the high lift camshaft. Other performance engine parts include a Milodon gear drive, an Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum intake manifold, a Quadrajet 800 cfm carburetor, a rebuilt factory HEI distributor with an MSD module, distributor cap, and coil. The FlowKooler aluminum water pump, dual Flex-a-lite electric fans, and a Modine 4-row radiator helps to keep the engine nice and cool! The factory Olds dual exhaust manifolds are used. The remainder of the system is 3" with Flowmaster 2 chamber mufflers.

The TH-400 transmission
was rebuilt with heavy duty sprag and racing clutches, and a TCI Streetfighter 3,000 - 3,400 rpm stall torque converter
. A Hurst V-Matic II ratchet shifter provides precise shifts. My brother rebuilt the rear end and converted it from a 3.08 conventional differential to a 4.10 posi-traction unit. Other performance parts of note are a Hurst Roll Control (a device that locks the front brakes at the push of a button to perform burnouts), an Auto Meter tachometer with shift light, Lakewood 90-10 drag racing shocks, RCI safety harnesses, and a Summit Racing 8 gallon fuel cell to hold the $6.95 per gallon Sunoco 104 octane race gas!!!!!!!!!!!!


Ran the car Fri. night and it turned a new best time and speed. E.T. was 13.23 and MPH was 102.07. Schweeeeeet! <<<===== update from owner

Found this car on the internet and when I first saw it I could see it in my mind red with the weld wheels on it. This is a 2 owner vehicle and with 17,500 original miles. I flew to Wisconsin and drove the car back to Georgia. At this point my intent is to make this my bracket racer, the car is still all stock drive line. But, I do have headers, aluminum intake to install soon. The car is a 350/350 turbo with 323 gears. Car was originally brown. After 180 labor hours by the painter, my vision became reality.

Wouldn't granny look slick in this out getting her groceries? Thanks again Anthony.

Doug

P.S. I am located in Rock Spring, GA which is about 25 miles south of Chattanooga, TN.

Here's pictures of my car after she arrived in town in mid-August. I've made some more changes in the following weeks (unfortunately she is still flat black) and will get those posted as well. The tires have been replaced by proper-sized white-letter tires, the rally wheels are now silver and will soon be replaced by chrome Cragar SuperSport wheels. Floorboards are swiss cheese at the moment; the rust ate through them pretty good.
