Are all Chevy Bellhousings the same?
All Chevy V6 and V8 engines continue to use the same block-to-bellhousing pattern as introduced in 1955. This includes Generation I, II and III engines. However, the Jeep bellhousings from these engines (1980-1982) rarely fit the full-size clutches of the V6/V8 engines. Flywheels do not interchange.
What is a 4100 engine?
The HT stood for High Tech, and the engine lived up to its name. The 4.1-liter V8 (hence the 4100) featured throttle-body fuel injection, an aluminum cylinder block with cast-iron sleeves, and unique lightweight block casting. Installed, the HT4100 weighed about 200 pounds less than the V8-6-4.
How many horsepower is a 6.2 liter engine?

Is the 4.9 Cadillac engine good?
As for overall reliability, the 4.9 liter is the lowest warranty claim engine that Cadillac has ever had as far as I know, and is very simple to repair should anything ever go against you. In terms of reliability when compared to the Northstar, the 4.9 liter runs circles around it from everything that I’ve heard.
What is the fastest LS motor?

How much HP can a LS4 handle?

Is the LS4 a good motor?
The LS4 is a bad choice for an engine swap, but it can be improved when used in a FWD car or mid-engine kit car swap.
Will a v6 transmission fit a v8 Chevy?
Will a transmission from a v6 fit a v8? v8 swap is very easy, the stock v6 tranny will work but it won’t hold up as well as the v8 tranny, and get the v8 computer and wire in the extra 2 injectors into the wiring harness and your set.
Is an LS bellhousing the same as SBC?
The LS1 bellhousing bolt pattern is the same as the other SBC’s. Yes there is one bolt hole missing but that bolt hole &/or the threaded hole in the block is also missing on a lot of other SBC engines and bellhousings. That bolt hole is usually only used on the castings for the truck, & other HD, applications.
How do I know if my transmission is SM465?

Is the Cadillac 4.5 engine reliable?
Registered. Yup, I strongly agree that overall, the 88/89 4.5 is extremely reliable if maintained (cooling, oil high in ZDDP). The TBI system is much less finicky than the newer PFI system.
When did Cadillac stop using carburetors?
But nowadays they don’t use such a system. When did cars stop using carburetors? Most car manufacturers stopped using carburetors in the late 1980’s because newer technology was coming out, such as the fuel injector, that proved to be more efficient.
What engine is in a 1982 Cadillac Eldorado?
Newly standard for the 1982 Eldorado and available on all Cadillacs except the Cimarron was the HT-4100 4.1 liter/249 ci V8 with throttle-body fuel injection. Unfortunately, horsepower for this all-new engine was an unimpressive 135 bhp—somewhat of an issue when you considered the Eldorado’s platform mates.
