Ok...here I am working on the engine intake system. Because of the way I plan on dressing it up, I really want to have a name for the 4.9L Caddy engine.

I'm canvassing PFF to help me come up with an awesome name for the engine....maybe even a small logo.

Looking for some creative answers...funny...smart...witty...techy...throw them all on the table and then we'll come up with a winner.

This is the engine (without the intake)...



'88 notchie...




First thought (V8 with black/yellow color) ... Killer Vee

Well... when someone asks you "what engine is that?" aren't you going to be saying "Caddy 4.9 V8"?

I picked this one because it incorporates the yellow,black of the engine along with the white car.

Or you could go with "Yellow Bullet".

Yes...but do I just want that written on the engine? The valve cover already says "V8 PFI"

I want to avoid Cadero, simply because others have used it....I love the name, but don't want to copy it.

I love the Yellow Jacket logo...not so much the name though. One down side is that I was intending on just using yellow and black for the text/logo...I could add white, but it will be much more effort and may throw the visual effect off.

Keep the names coming! I think we're getting closer!

The first Yellow Jacket logo looks like his stinger is a bolt of lightning. This indicates something electrical like an electric motor. Maybe change the bee to look like a piston with wings.

In the Rocky movies, Stallone wore black and yellow. Called himself the Italian Stallion. Maybe you could use that or spin something off of it. "Fiero" has been reported to be an Italian word meaning "proud". The original Fiero logo is a Pegasus which is a winged horse. Perhaps a winged STALLION?

yea HORNET
It'd be at hit if your car gets to Frazee where the Tyler Shipman Memorial Carshow is too. Their high school mascot is a Hornet Plus thats a cool name reminds me of the old engine names, Magnum, Cobra Jet, Rocket 350......Hornet 4.9

Thanks for all the input. I see people are gravitating towards the hornet as the name/symbol.

I think something based on this logo would work well....



I love "Hornet Performance"....but I'll be ripping off a company name. So...using a logo similar to this one (I'll redraw so it's not just a copy) and the name "Hornet", can anyone think of something to add similar to the word "performance" to give the same (similar) meaning?

I dont think you'll have an issue using performance.
Perhaps high performance
or just Hornet 4.9

How about naming it John Deere.
Because it will probably pull like a tractor.

It will have LOTS of low RPM torque - so Stump Puller could work too.

First cut of the new logo. I'll be making a black fiberglass engine cover that will go over the intake system and the logo will go over that. In the mean time I cut one just to see how it could look.

Just remember...it will have black under it to make it stand out and there won't be a bolt sticking through it. (...the blue coupling will be changed to black as well, but will be covered by the engine cover)

What do you think?
