Best bang for your buck 350 cid with a turbo 350 or 700r4 ... the 350 engine can be stroked out to 383 using the internals:pistons and crank from a 400 in big block... but just stroking a 350 on a hot tranny with low gears to drive those big wheels is important get a 4;11 low gear ratio you ll be able to drag that monster.

I have a 87 two door cutlass with a check engine light that turns on and off. Is there a OBD port in that car for a reader to be conected to trouble shoot the problem

This takes a special scanner called an OBD1 scan tool, so the free tests can't be done, they are for OBD2. The diagnostic port in under the dash. You can do a manual test with a paper clip shorting bar and watching the check engine light flash out the code. Just google that.

I have a 94 olds cutlass supreme the speedometer does not read right it is off if you are in town but on the highway it is farly right on what can i do to fix this

have you changed wheel size? if you changed your tire rim size,it throws the speedodometer other words if you changed the 15inch rims to '18 inch or '20 inch rims you have thrown the speedometer off. because more wheel base is turning on the fround when the cars in motion. speeding tickets,yes! you're putting more wheel base on the road,which will increase the odometer speed as well as the cars. you may think you're doing 65mph with 15inch tires[good] but upsize your rims, you may be as much as 15miles or even 20 miles above the speed limit, or else if no rim change,have your transmission checked for bad speed sensor or the gear that runs the odometer is worn.thank you for choosing
