sure .. read on > The 455 "big block" Olds V8 was replaced in 1977 with the 403 cu in (6.6 L) "small block" V8. It used a wide 4.351 in (110.5 mm) bore, the largest ever used in a small-block V8, with the Olds small-block standard deck and 3.385 in (86.0 mm) stroke. The bore was so wide that the cylinder walls were "siamesed" (similar to the Chevrolet 400 CID small block engine) — there was no space for coolant flow between the cylinders. This sometimes led to overheating problems. Some very early 403s were painted metallic blue like the 455, but most were painted GM Corporate Blue. The Olds 403 was used by Buick and Pontiac in addition to Oldsmobile. The engine was only produced through 1979. Output was 185 hp (138 kW) and 320 lb·ft (430 N·m). The Toronado version of the 1977 Oldsmobile 403 engine was fitted with a crank triggered ignition system. Parts peculiar to this system include a toothed disc between the harmonic balancer and the crank pulley, the adjacent sensor (which predated the modern-day crankshaft position sensor, which Oldsmobile used with their Quad 4 in the late 1980s with a cast-in toothed section of the crankshaft), a special distributor, an engine temperature sensor, *****and a rudimentary computer mounted inside the car, under the dash. No other years or models were provided with this system.*********** Applications: 1977 Buick Century Estate 1977–1978 Buick Riviera 1977–1979 Buick Electra 1977–1979 Buick Estate Wagon 1977–1979 Buick LeSabre 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass 1977 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 1977 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser 1977–1978 Oldsmobile Delta 88 1977–1978 Oldsmobile Toronado 1977–1979 Oldsmobile 98 1977–1979 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 1977 Pontiac Bonneville 1977-1979 Pontiac Catalina Safari 1977–1979 Pontiac Trans Am 1977–1979 Pontiac Firebird Formula 6.6L 1977 Pontiac Grand Prix available with California Emissions Only 1977–1978 GMC Motorhome
