Hi, im new to the forum, I just bought a third gen camaro with trans am 6.6l 403 engine. I have few question

How many quart does this engine hold ? I change the oil today, oil filter part # PF61, is their a over size filter for this ?
the last owner told me that the tranmission is 3 speed 400, its mean turbo 400 ?
The carb is currently leak fuel and properly need to rebuild, how do I know what rebuild kit to buy ? and it doesnt come with air filter, how do I find the correct filter for it ?

Thanks !

What year is this car? All third gens came with chevy engines not that someone couldn't put an Olds motor in it. If it does have a Olds 403 than go to any parts store and ask what oil/air filter they use. DO you have any pics of the car.

Is the engine bay pretty cut up, becuase I have a 3rd gen with a 305 sbc and it barely fits, I can't imagine how crammed a 403 would be.

Oil is super dark !! I want to change it out, but I heard these car require some kind of zind additive, Can I run without it ? I properly only drive sunday.
