or ill just save ya a trip:

W-41


1991:

Again, W-41 was used as a Cutlass Calais Quad 442 option.

It was produced during the 1991 model year. 200 cars (mostly Achieva) were made mostly for racing.

Engine: Quad4 H.O. 2.3 liter, 4 cyl, 190 bhp (Vin A? - LGO)
Transmission: Getrag 5-speed, 3.94 final drive ratio, limited slip
Body Style: 2 Door FWD coupe (Calais, Achieva)
Distignuishing characteristics: Silver striping (4- " stripes)around car, trunklid spoiler, ~30 MPG Highway. Very few options were availible since made for SCCA racing.

Notes:
Olds test results: 0-60 in 6.8 sec, mile in 14.6 sec (95.7 mph speed at trap).

EPA 21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway.

Differences between 180 hp VIN A and the 190 hp VIN A include: hotter cam profile, lower restriction exhaust, and taller transmission gearing.

Won 6 out of 9 IMSA Firestone Firehawk races in 1991.

The most distinguishing feature is the W-41 emblem on the moulding on both the driver'* and passenger'* front rocker panel. The other exclusive feature is the bright red, with silver stripes, W-41 cover over the engine (plugs, cams, etc.). The words on the cover say "Made exclusively for Oldsmobile". In the center is an Olds rocket next to a "W30" marking.



1992, 93:
The Achieva SCX was made in 1992 and 1993. It was made by Olds to legalize it for racing. SCCA world champ, NHRA record holder, IMSA Firehawk champ. Great car. 1146 made in 1992, 500 made in 1993.

Special parts included: 190hp Q4 (185hp in 1993), which included the W41 cams, larger exhaust system, a Getrag licensed 5-speed with a .81 5th gear, a concentric slave clutch, a modified version of the FX3 Computer Command Ride package, a larger front stabilizer bar, 2 rear stabilzer bars, a wider rear axle, V-rated 14" tires, a 140 mph speedometer, and a 7000k tach.

This car also came in a C41 version, of which only 11 were made. (The standard version is the C60 version, not to be confused with the option package W41, which both had).

This car included a tank baffle, a Torsen LSD, a oil cooler, no power options or A/C, and a 7400k redline. This car was availible to the public, but was built to be sold to the racers as basis for track cars.

The standard Achieva is pretty unremarkable, but talk to any owner of an SCX, and you'll find a happy car owner. 0-60 in 7.6, 135mph, 31mpg, .86 g'*, 15k new, and really cheap to insure. Besides, every time you beat someone, you get to talk about your car, 'cause no one knows what it is!

I had a 4-door Olds Cutlas Calais with the W41 option code, 5 speed, etc. It was very unique, as it had 4 doors. I should have never sold that car. It'* my biggest car regret to this day.

2 years later I had a Grand Am with th Quad4 and an auto trans. Not the same.
