home-made 425 Oldsmobile powered death trap
Don't laugh to hard at this. My buddy's dad build himself a rail job (death trap) race car, powered by a Oldsmobile 425 big block. Once again I don't have all the info but it does have an Edelbrock intake and a Holley carb. The Exhaust is running out open manifolds. Also has airbag suspension in the back and some fat Mickey T's. Check out the HUGE steering wheel, it's bigger than the actual wheels. Gets crazy going down the road. Thankfully he never actually took it to the track. It became doner parts for other projects. Have fun!!!!

I built this engine 31 years ago, 425 Olds high-compression V8 425; I installed Toronado heads, milled .030 bringing the compression to 11:1; 292 degree Iskenderian camshaft at .050 lifter height; 800 cfm Holley carb, dual line, double pumper; mechanical secondaries; I permanently wired the twin stall speed torque converter at the 3000 rpm setting; recurved distributor; dual round thrush mufflers (no packing); with it's 2.9 rear end, it will run 140-150 mph top end; I had turned the engine a couple times of year by hand, to make sure it had not set up; but the building was getting in bad condition, it had sat on blocks for 25 years; it was great to hear the old girl fire up again, just craving the highway.
