Q: Ram Air V
I have heard Pontiac made some Ram Air V in 1969 but were available in a crate only. If they were crate motors could you not have put it into a Firebird?
A: … the factory didnt put these race motors in any production cars. A little over 200 were sold in the crate and some more were pieced togeather. There was 2 versions. the low deck 303 cu in version made just for Trans Am racing ( 5 litre restriction),and the 400 version . The factory tried a few experimental versions,366 and 455 but the RAV program was aimed at the drags and T/A series. They also experimented with various carb(s) and manifolds. the closest production motor to this was the 73-4 455 SD.
