Re: '93 Buick Roadmaster engine/trans - swap into Nova?

The later LT engines were a whole different animal, "gen 2", it's greatest attribute was the reverse cooling, the heads saw coolant from the radiator first, which I thought was brilliant, it supposedly allowed more compression.

It was plagued by ignition system problems because of where the optical pickup and ignition module were located. The Mitsubishi optical sensor and wheel was actually a great idea and today it's still a more accurate way of tracking the engine's rotating position.

The F-body LT1 engines were known to burn out the rear manifold (China) seal because of where the EGR tube was located.
