    7 Poorly Engineered Engines (Pontiac included)

    I was not aware of some of these racing engines but I found the inclusion of the Pontiac turbo engine interesting. Considering the technology limitations of the time I do not think the 301 turbo was that bad. What do you think of the list? Does anyone have a running and stock 301 turbo? Here...
