The LeMans (on the left) has a mild, non-rebuilt 455 with ported & polished 6X heads, c. 9:1 compression, Edelbrock Performer intake, Holley 800 Street Avenger, Comp XE274 cam, making maybe 300-350 horsepower. The Grand Am (right) has a .030 over 455 with Edelbrock heads (87 cc chambers), 10:1 compression, same Comp cam but with 1:65 roller rockers, slightly better Exhaust (H-pipe), Edelbrock Performer RPM intake and Edelbrock 750 carb. About 500 horsepower at the flywheel. The heads make all the difference. The Grand Am has the Flowmaster American Thunder Exhaust system, which has the 50-series mufflers. LeMans has a Summit Exhaust system, which was cheap and went on nice & easy.

Platinum Bandit New 455 Stroker Motor - 580HP
This is a video of the new motor we build with Butler Performance, to be customized as a high Horse Power motor that was designed to drive on the road and use 89 Octaine Fuel. With the 60 over 455 1971 Pontiac Block, it was stroked to 474 and with a combination of multiple components, 10:1 compression, we were able to acheave a 580HP engine that you can drive around town, across country, etc. using 89 Octaine gas! Look for it to be featured in an upcoming High Performance Pontiac Magazine for full details... Build your own Monster Motor and join us on the Bandit Run next year!
