These are photos of my 455 Rocket Oldsmobile engine that was (BUILTandINSTALLED )by ownerLynn Welfringer of Mondello Performance. Unfortunately this engine lasted only 200 + miles after personally picking it up and driving it to Sun Valley California for transport to the East coast byReliable Car Carriers. I had my car sent directly to Rubright Racing of Limerick Pennsylvania to do a complete engine rebuild. These photos and video of my enginewere taken after the complete rebuild by Rubright Racing Limerick Pennsylvania.Image title

My buddy's 77 had a 350 in it. This is what he desired but couldn't afford. You did it right it sounds like. Nice pulley set up. Is that March? $$$$$
