In 1978, the engine was replaced with a 1971 Pontiac 455 engine out of a Bonneville series car with engine code YC and D-port cylinder heads. The engine was rebuilt (30,000 miles ago) using High Output and heavy duty parts. The camshaft is a Crane replica of the Pontiac Ram Air III (RA III 9785744) camshaft with 301 intake duration and 313 exhaust duration. Intake rocker arms are Pontiac RA IV of 1.65 ratio. Rhoads leak-down hydraulic valve lifters are used to give good idle and low RPM performance. Intake manifold is the Pontiac aluminum dual plane high rise: 1971 High Output (HO) 455, part number 483674 (rare). The carburetor is a performance Rochester Quadrajet (800 CFM) remanufactured by Sean Murphy Induction. Cylinders are bored 0.0030 over with forged TRW pistons. Engine is blue-printed, balanced and magnafluxed for cracks. Exhaust manifolds are the Pontiac HO from a 1967 GTO. Pontiac heavy duty timing chain and 60 psi oil pump are in engine. Resultant engine data: 462 cubic inches of engine displacement, 410 horsepower, 480 foot-pounds of torque and 8.3 compression ratio. The total engine package has mostly Pontiac parts and is a sleeper since most people think it looks like the original engine under the hood, but instead it is a powerful 455 engine.
