#4, No, no, you NEVER have to replace a timing chain! [/every Euro car owner's manual in the last decade]

#5, Technically correct, you replace the MOTOR when that breaks. :)

#6, Yup, VW 1.4 TSI was notorious for timing chain stretching and breakage for most of it's production run. It did not stop it from appearing on the "Best Engine" list for years...

#7, Technically there's nothing wrong with the 4.9L Pontiac either.... but 100,000 miles on 70's material technology will do that... (it was a standard motor for non-California Firebirds too, it had to have SOME resiliency)

The only truly bad one was the turbocharged 4.9..... introduced a whole generation to the concept of "turbo lag"

And the "iron duke" 4-cylinder was awful to, but it was designed to be awful under the assumption that people wouldn't waste gas and cause excess emissions street racing something that didn't have any power. They were right, people pulled them out and put V8s in.....

#8, I think I saw a Big Muscle episode on /Drive with a 4.9 Turbo Firebird... not to offend anyone but what a pile... how do you make a turbo suck?!

#8, Ah yes, the Iron Duke probably came from the same group of engineers as the GM 305 "boat anchor"...

#9, Bolt one on to a motor that it was never intended to work with and push it out the factory door

#10, Except there wasn't actually anything wrong with the 305. It was just a 350 with a smaller bore.

#12, It only got that reputation because it came along as smog rules did and was less powerful than it's predecessors to start with, and then the knock-on effect of larger combustion chambers, smog pumps, EGRs etc sapped the power even more. Remember, the 403 Olds of 1979 made a BLISTERING 185 HP......

305's with the right heads and pistons and stripped off all the crud make comparable HP to the 350 SBC, it's just that for the money it would cost, you can do that all TO a 350 and get that extra 45 cubic inches....

Oh, and rust never sleeps..... while the motor is still at the machine shop, I got to work on that "yeah I'll fix that someday" spotty rust.

The hood wasn't so bad, cleaned up in 30 minutes.

The "spot" on the rear fender bubbling up from behind the pot metal strip? That was worse than I suspected. It's not only been eaten by rust from the outside, but, the extreme bottom seam of the trunk is right on the backside of the same panel, meaning any water that got in there ended up on THAT side.

Eaten from two sides at once meant the whole section just fell out when I started grinding. And the part I'm holding in my hand is a lump of old bondo the previous owner put in there to stop it..... gonna have to fabricate a new skin, but at least it's a nice flat surface....

On the plus side, that ugly hood rust is gone for good.
