Im buying a 68 firebird. It was originaly a 350 but now has a 400 in
it. Whats the easiest way to tell if it is actually a 400 and how do I
tell if its a genuine pontiac engine and not a chev. Thanks Wayne.

Easy to tell a Pontiac engine from chevy. The pontiac engine (350&400) will
have an air gap under the intake manifold. It's a little harder to tell if
it's 400 or 350. I don't know about '68 but in 1970 only 350s were 2bbls.
Next engine up was a 400 4bbl.
Of course the '70 I owned with a 350 got a manifold change from a 400.
Picked up about 20 HP and 2 miles per gallon highway going to the Q-jet from
that POS 2bbl rochester. So you could find a 350 with a 4bbl....
