The final use of the 442 name was on the Quad 442 front-wheel drive 1990-1991 Cutlass Calais. This model used a 2.3 L LG0 Quad-4 4-cylinder engine with 4 valves per cylinder and 2 camshafts. The engine was tuned with higher output camshafts which produced more top end power at the expense of idle quality. It used a single exhaust with dual tailpipes and produced 180 & 190 hp with a 5-speed manual transmission. This 442 model lasted just two years.

Still, about 190 horses out of a four-cylinder engine isn't too bad for a 1991 model vehicle.

Didn't really deserve the 442, name, though.

Yeah... not exactly a high point in Oldsmobile history.

FWD really is a plague that has ravaged the Automotive landscape.

hmm... still more horse power than a Cobalt, HHR, and the Vibe.

Is this vehicle even worth the kilobytes of webspace that has been used to make this thread?

ah they were neat cars! Not too common at all. ESP the W41 versions--7400rpm redline ;)

While the did make more PEAK hp then the 2.4L Ecotec--its power band is not as flat. I raced a GTZ in my 5 speed 2.4L SS and won np
