Re: '93 Buick Roadmaster engine/trans - swap into Nova?
Many years ago in a salvage yard I looked at LT1's in old Sheriff cruisers. The man running the yard told me you can spot these by their green coolant hoses. I know the cruisers had green hoses. Not sure if all LT1's had them.
That was a 9C1 police car option, not on "normal' cars. But many people added it later as show upgrades.
Agreed def not on standard passenger cars but if you do find a car with those hoses check them for condition and if they look OK grab them.Those hoses last like crazy and there is usually little wear if any on the used hoses.The only thing I don't like is that weird color.I think they have some kind of silicon construction or something.
