Our '71 Olds Cutlass "S71" is going to make some power with the help of a 76mm turbocharger built by Bullseye Power that we got from Outlaw Turbo Motorsports . Our buddy Brett Evans came by to help with the install, and in this video, Brett takes us through the anatomy of the Bullseye Turbo and why we chose it.

 

Sometimes the simple solution eludes you. In this case, we've been gearing up for the turbocharger install on the S71 Olds project. We've got our diesel block and new parts set aside, and we're using the original 350 engine to mock up how we want the turbo to fit in the car. We were expecting a ton of fambrication, as turbo manifolds or headers are not readily available for 1971 Olds 350 engines, and we were expecting to have to make our own. However, after studying the stock manifolds, a potential solution became apparant. From a performance standpoint, turbo cars don't seem to care if you're running headers or manifolds, the power levels are similar. And cast iron is as strong as anything when it comes to exhaust parts. We notices that the Olds manifolds had a provision for the single exhaust version cars that merges the left and right exhaust pipes together... can we use this factory style setup to build our turbo exhaust? Let's find out!

 

The rear suspension on the Olds "S71" is designed to keep this car stuck to the road in the turns, and provide smooth articulation. The Global West Negative Roll rear suspension makes it happen.

 

The original dash panel was pretty rusty on our 1971 Olds "S71" project. These cars tended to hold water and moisture under the stainless windshield trim, and that would cause big rust holes to form under the trim, and then the driver's feet would get wet. The sheet metal to repair this area is not yet reproduced, so we contacted Desert Valley Auto Parts to have a section removed from a rust-free parts car to install in our Oldsmobile.

 

The quarter panels were next on the list of repairs on the "S71" Olds project. We were contemplating this area for a while, as the original steel had some rust in the wheel well lip and along the bottom edge, but it was otherwise in great shape. We elected to do a minimally-invasive repair and use part of a replacement quarter panel skin from YearOne to do the job.

 

This video covers the installation of a new 3-piece trunk floor and inner and outer wheelhouses from YearOne. We also installed a rear tail panel obtained from Desert Valley Auto Parts, which was removed from a rust-free donor car in Arizona. The install is pretty straight forward, and Randy Stange takes us through the steps and the tools needed to do the job and have an undetectable repair when finished. He used traditional MIG welding and the HTP Quickspot II spot welder for a clean installation.

 

We've talked about the welding techniques used from the factory in another video, and now here's a demonstration of how to make clean plug welds with a MIG welder or how to make factory -appearing resistance spot welds using the HTP Quickspot II spotwelder.

 

The V8TV crew has been making improvements to the S71's chassis, namely adding reinforcing steel in areas where the original frame was "C" shaped to completely "box" the design. This will help the chassis resist flexing and improve overall handling and traction. One design modification was the need to re-engineer the transmission crossmember, as it no longer will use the original mount holes because their access was closed off with the reinforcements. Once the chassis was welded solid and ground clean, it was treated to a single stage enamel paint coat in a satin-black factory appearing sheen.
