this book Iím sharing almost 30 years of accumulated Oldsmobile
knowledge to help in your Oldsmobile performance endeavors. This
journey began at age 16 when I rebuilt my first 455 Olds engine for
a í70 Cutlass S.
As Iíve never believed in following the masses, I tend to do things
a little Ďoutside the boxí and in this book Iíll explain why I do
some of the things that I do and hopefully step you up a notch in
the Oldsmobile performance world. Youíll find that some of my
techniques are about as far from building a small block Chevy as you
can get. I tend to go down the road less traveled Ė and I donít give
advice that I think is good, I only give advice that Iíve physically
proved to myself.
My goal in sharing this knowledge with Oldsmobile enthusiasts is
that this book will result in faster ET slips at the racetrack and
more Ďseat of the pantsí power on the street. Iím also here to save
you from dropping your engine off at your local machine shop and
having it built with conventional techniques that result in
premature engine wear and ultimately engine failure - I completely
remember my early days with Oldsmobile performance and the feeling
of huger for this knowledge. Ultimately youíll save a bunch of
money, but you have to understand from the start that High
Performance Oldsmobiles are inherently more expensive to build than
a Chevy or a Ford engine.
While almost every individual subject in this book could have a book
written about it to cover every single detail Ė in this edition,
Iíll share my 28 years of experience in power and longevity
techniques that are unique to High Performance Oldsmobiles.
My working career started on my 16th birthday as a heliarc welder at
a sheet metal fabrication shop. Next I worked at the Delco Products
General Motors plant in Rochester, NY for 19 years and served 5 year
apprenticeship as an Automation Mechanic. As a Journeyman Automation
mechanic, I worked repairing, troubleshooting, and re-designing
