Them 428's used 1967-69 made really good power . They had better Heads and camshafts then the 455's stock for stock . My Friend from school had a 1969 Bonneville 2 DR 428 Car . It was quick but got totaled when a guy t-boned the car . He pulled out that Engine and sold it to a Guy with a 1968 GTO yes that car would Lift up real good with that Big Pontiac in it . Them Pontiac Engine make good Torque and are easy to work on as well . I Like the 389's to 455's . I almost pulled the 1969 400 out My 1977 T/A and was going to swap it into My 1972 Old's Cutlass . I think that would have been Like a GTO when I was done with it Ha-Ha .

them big ole engines are cool. i like the big blocks. it dont take much to make them jokers bad to the bone. from all i have ben able to learn its easier and cheaper to go big hp on a big block than a small block. im talkin 500 hp. i have figgered it more than once. the sbc's are cheaper to a point but after , say 450 hp it starts to get pricey as heck on the sb. i better shut up before somebody sets me straight. hahaha

Yeah the LS-1 guy will tell us different . BB's are great to drop into mid sized cars for a quick boost of power . Most guys that I have seen do this are so happy with that big power gain of a BB Engine swap . That they start running the heck out of them and revving them to high . Now these BB's I am talking about where take out from Big G.M Car's Buick's Oldsmobile's and Pontiac's 400-455 mills . They can Live a Long Life when taken care of using good oil and keeping the R's below 5400 . If you want to take them to the next Level Like High 11's they need special mod's done to there oiling system . So the small Blocks get the tougher engine status because they can take much more abuse . I did a 455 Pontiac Grandville Junkyard Engine swap in My 1969 Firebird . Just used a stock GTO Camshaft better oil Pump GTO intake and Q-Jet Curved Points Dist No Headers just dual Exhaust and a TH-350with a Shift Kit . That car had a 3.08 open rearend Had some good used 60's out back Let some air out and it would run Low 14's all day . I did keep the R's down as much as I could Ha-Ha . With a Posi that car would have ran 13.80's on Street tire's and that Engine was basically built with all G.M parts Iron intake and all . Even back then with cheaper Gas prices that Joker was killing Me to Drive around . I wanted to try out and old 389 but Late put a 350 back in it . It ran 15.50's then But still could just beat My Friends 1972 Dodge Charger by a Fender .
