those were a common motor for gm cars in the 80's and early 90's.
the "tech4" found in chevy celebrity's grand am's cutlass cierra's some cavaliers they mainly had the 2.0 though the 2.5 tech4 was the BIG 4cyl back then  oh yeah they were also in s10's and s15s there are plenty others but one that comes to mine clearly the caddillac cimmeron lmfao yeah what a car.


p.s. im glad you are shocked you missed a piss poor era for cars.

yeah all 15 hp they had good greif to give you an idea they made the 185 hp motors seem very fast from the 307's to the 400's 305's and 350's they seemed like absolute power once you drove one of them.

Thanks again to everyone for the pics.  Finally got everything back on and working. (kinda)  Wish I had more time to work on the car.  Seems like it will take forever to get everything done that I want to.  The AC compressor was a b*tch to put back on but finally got it.  Here are some pics just in case any was wandering.  Just have to figure out all the vacuum hoses.. but that will be another tread.. :)  We will see if I can add the pics..

might I give some friendly advise.... the filter you have on your fuel line... it looks as if its plastic and laying directly on the thermostat housing.... if you choose to run the filter give it a little more line so its not laying on the housing, best location for that type of filter is closer to the tank. its extremely hot and it will be susceptable to melting and then leak.  On a personal note I dont trust that type of filter just for that reason, they are affective in doing thier job but there is a lot of heat on these engines and they can cause a lot of headache and heartache. recall a buddies dad with a 70 Lemans did the same thing... about 4 months later the car went up in flames due to a gas leek in the engine compartment.

   really great job.... how does it sound ....
