1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supercharged 6.2 LSA Engine Swap

This very nice 1968 Oldsmobile 442 is wearing a crisp restoration and features some modified parts intended to give this car better handling and drivability. It’s not a numbers-matching W30 car, although it looks like one. It’s got 17” American Racing wheels, Wilwood brakes with a Hydratech hydraulic brake assist unit, Hotchkis control arms and sway bars, and a few other goodies. It’s powered by a big block Olds engine, but the owner wanted increased reliability, as he drives this car on cross country trips. His solution is a GM LSA supercharged 6.2 liter V8 “Connect & Cruise Kit” which also provides an overdrive transmission. It’s not an Oldsmobile engine, but the owner has several other numbers matching 442 W30 cars, and this one is not a “numbers matching car”, and he likes the technology and abilities of the LSA engine and the 4L85E transmission.

This is part 1 of a 6 video series in which we upgrade a 1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass with a modern supercharged GM LSA 6.2 liter Connect & Cruise engine and transmission. Follow along as we cover the whole process in this series.
