2 years ago i found the ugliest, most rotten, rat infested pile of junk I've seen on 4 flat tires. So after the owner told me it fried the ecu and sat for 4 years, naturally I bought it for $400. 😂
From the moment we pushed it out the driveway and I coasted it downa a hill to my house praying the brakes worked I fell in love. I had never even hear or seen of both the model and the engine. Turns out it was also the worst thing GM had ever built. I give you the 1987 oldsmobile Calais supreme powered by the infamous 2.5l tech IV L68 tbi vin U short block and 3spd slushbox. She's become a junkyard and free parts experiment. And this group has become my best source for specs on these motors. So I figured I'd join and let you join along insanity inducing cycle of constant repairs with almost no info or replacement parts available. But I can't help it, I just love watching my neighbors trying to figure out how I got it running again, just to hammer slam the gas everywhere I go till it blows up again. Here's a couple pictures when I put on new tires and battery, evicted the mice and somehow got it to run on a tank of 4yr old gas. Right before power windows failed all the way and it started raining.

I actually used to get rides home from school on holidays at the University (7 hours one way) in one of those, burgundy on burgundy, same 2.5L as my Fiero. I remember thinking how weird it was when he popped the hood and the engine was in backwards from what I was used to seeing. Much more comfortable on long trips.

The good thing about the 2.5L? Easy to work on, and parts are dirt cheap!

My parents had an early 90s Cutlass Calais coupe for a long time. I kind of miss that car.
