Perhaps the guy before him did just that. maybe he knew more what he was doing then this new owner of the car.  idk either way it sounds fishy

That's possible. But I have to admit, it's odd to swap from a Pontiac engine of any size to an Olds. I mean, I'm proff that people do it, but we're talking pretty long odds.

Yeah, I mean it's stupid.  Why would you EVER want to run an Olds motor when you've got a Pontiac.  ;)   Sorry, couldn't resist.

I just like to go against the grain. The 455 Olds in the Trans Am and the 400 in the Cutlass. ;)
