What are 4X Pontiac heads?

The 4X head was the 49-state casting used on all ’73-74 400 and 455ci engines. Since Pontiac offered the 400 2-barrel, the 400 4-barrel with both manual and automatic transmissions, and the 455 4-barrel for 1973 and 1974, separate applications of the 4X head were required to meet such broad usage.

How do I know if my Pontiac engine is block?

The blocks of all Pontiac V-8s from the 287 to the 455 are the same size and very close to the same weight, which can make it more difficult to identify the 11 different engine displacements produced from 1955–79. Adding to the confusion, multiple block codes were used, and date codes can overlap up to three decades.
