1978 GM downsized its popular lineup of intermediate models and while
still rear wheel drive, they also had substantially less horsepower and
torque than previous models owing to growing emissions and fuel economy
concerns. In 1986 starting with the 305 cubic inch V-8, they increased
the compression, added a hotter cam and larger diameter exhaust with the
higher flow catalytic converter from the Corvette® to get a respectable
175 horsepower rating. With the revised 3.42:1 rear axle ratio, the 0
to 60 mph times decreased down to the low 9 second range. These
mechanical improvements were wrapped in a stylish body with an all-new
aerodynamic friendly nose, unique to the model.
