Thanks for info Dave.

I am looking to build a pump gas motor so will have to pass on package.

Interested in Stage 2 heads, headers, etc if the package does not sell. Did AMP give you flow numbers on heads?

Thanks...Will

Hey David. Don't know if you remember me. I bought the ported 430 heads from you a few years back and let a local Chevy guy almost destroy them. Hate to see you sell your project. Love to have it but I can't swing that much myself right now.

hello,
Good to here from you ! Did you get your car completed ? I hope you were able to use the heads after all.

I just have way to many projects to complete everything. Changing the Red car that the 430 heads came off of to NHRA stocker and cleaning out all extra parts.

Thanks,
David Parris

Greg Gessler fixed those heads. I could have bought alum. heads for the $$ I have in them but Greg said they flowed very well. It was the challange I liked. What all you cleaning out?

O.K. I tried................ I would rather sell this in one package. Is anyone interested in the whole package at $ 7500.00 ?

If I do not sell it this week, as a package, I am going to break it up on E-bay, the short block with Girdle,rods,crank,pistons,and bearings as an item, Heads, valves and headers as an item, Then rockers, intake and oil pan as seperate items.

Note: I am sorry that I did not have the flow #s on the heads. I misplaced the copies of the flow charts, I have asked AMP to see if they have a copy, if not I am taking them to a local shop this week and flow test just to confirm exact info for a buyer. Nothing to hide here the heads flowed great !! I just can not find the file I had the flow sheets in after we moved our shop to another location.

Thank you for looking !

I would much rather sell as a package deal. I would consider 2 part or 3 part payment plan for up to 45 days. I keep ALL parts until final & total payment.

Let's work out a deal !

Looks tempting David. I'm just getting my street/strip motor together for the dyno next week. Maybe try to contact Buicks4Speed (Rick Crawford), he is in Fayetteville he may possibly be interested.

The whole package is spoken for as of this morning. The sale is pending. I will update if we conclude a deal this weekend or not.

If the deal works out these Headers may not fit the buyers car so the headers might still be for sale.

Engine was picked up this morning.

Buyer could not use the headers so I will sell or trade them.

Thanks for all the interest and to those who helped pass the word about my stuff !!
