    ... I FINALLY PAID FOR MY '73 BUICK 455 BUILT BY MR. DANIEL SMITH OF D&S PERFORMANCE (CAMDEN, NJ)! THIS MAN IS "THE MAN" WHEN IT COMES TO BUILDING ... MOTORS. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF BUICK'S 455 REMINDS ME OF SCOTTY AT PEE-GEE's. I WILL POST PHOTOS OF MY "D&S 462BUICK" AND THE '87 SPECIAL-T REGAL IT WENT IN NEXT MONTH AT www.nas-tech-engineering.com LATA!

    OH GOD! I DIDN'T MEAN TO SHOUT AT "BUICK DAWGS" ... I AM OCD ON AXIS-2 ... I AM "OBSESSED" WITH WRITING & TYPING IN CAPITAL LETTERING. Thanks for the "attention to detail." HAVE A GOOD NIGHT ... AND I PROMISE TO POST THE PICS. DAN GAVE ME TA PERFORMANCE'S "TA413" CAM (will post cam card later tonight ... my girlfriend/wife/same-crap made me agree to post ALL pics when motor is in car). THANKS AGAIN.

    UPDATE: I JUST ORDERED/HAD SHIPPED THE EDELBROCK-2146 ALUMINUM INTAKE MANIFOLD TO DAN SMITH. HE CALLED ME A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO STATING THE STOCK EXHAUST MANIFOLD WOULD CRACK DUE TO THE CAM AND EXHAUST HEAT CROSSOVER PORTS BEING BLOCKED. I NEVER LIKED THE ALUMINUM INTAKES LEFT THEIR NATURAL COLOR ... SO MY ORIGINAL 1997 PLANS FOR THE "462 SCOTTY BUILT" GO INTO PLAY NOW WITH SANDING OF THE EDELBROCK-BUICK455 LETERING, AND DAN IS PAINTING IT "BUICK455 RED." I FEEL STRONG. lol

    Your stock intake will not "crack" due to either the camshaft or the blocked exhaust crossover. Feel free to run either intake.

    ... NOOO, HE SAID THE STOCK EXHAUST MANIFOLDS WOULD CRACK. I ALWAYS WANTED TO KEEP THE STOCK BUICK 455 "INTAKE" AND RUN 12's. I GOT A LIL ANGRY AT FIRST WHEN HE TOLD ME I NEEDED TO SPEND $261-PLUS TAX/S&H, BUT THE WEIGHT LOSS AND PERFORMANCE GAIN (WITH THE LONG-STYLE TA PERFORMANCE HEADERS) MADE ME COME AROUND. I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR HELP, AND I THINK MY CAPITAL LETTERING WAS THE REASON FOR THE MIS-READING. Lata.

    Ah, I misunderstood, but still haven't heard of exhaust manifolds cracking for those reasons either.

    The edelbrock is worth it for the weight savings alone. Ask him if he's familiar with the usual plenum divider modification.

    THANKS MUCH. I WILL ASK HIM TOMORROW FOR SURE. IT SOUNDS FAMILIAR TO ME ... SOMETHING LIKE LIGHT BORE/SMOOTHING OUT OF THE PLENUMS AND TAKING A LITTLE OFF THE PLENUM DEVIDER? ... Guessimg here. lol I WILL ASK. THANKS AGAIN.

    Yikes. If it's the same builder, the engine we're discussing here needs to come apart to have everything inspected.

    ... TWO THINGS: I AM SORRY THAT YOUR FRIEND HAD A BAD DEAL WITH DAN SMITH, WHO IN NO WAY IS MY "GOD... " NO "MAN" CAN EVER BE A "GOD" IN MY EYES. IT WAS HEAVILY SUGGESTED BY GREG HEARN (good friend) THAT I LET DAN BUILD MY MOTOR. GREG MENTIONED TODAY THAT DAN BUILT HIS 383-STROKER W/JUICE 12-YEARS AGO WITH NOOOOO PROBLEMS. GREG RACES AT ATCO & ENGLISHTOWN ... LIVES IN ALBANY, NY. DUE TO MY "OCD ON AXIX-3," I SECRETLY CHECKED EVERYTHING WITH SCOTTY AT PEE-GEE's & TOM AT TA-PERFORMANCE ... THEY EVERYTIME GAVE OVER-THE-PHONE THUMBS-UP. DAN HAS ALSO WORKED GREG'S 11-SECOND GN ... Again ... NOOOO PROBLEMS. IN CLOSING, MY-MAN-SCOTTY MADE A MISTAKE (that is all I will say) THAT HAD ME DRIVING THE REGAL TO HIM ... AND HIM REPLACING/REPAIRING THE ISSUE. THINGS HAPPEN. IN CLOSING, AGAIN ... SORRY THAT DAN SMITH HAS ANNOYED YOU. OH YEAH: DAN REFUSED TO PUT A "LUNATI" CAM IN MY 455 ... STATED THEY CAUSE ISSUES IN BUICK 455's ... TOM AT TA PERFORMANCE TOLD ME, "TRUE ... BUT NOT ANYMORE DUE TO A TA-PERFORMANCE COPY OF THE LUNATI(s) WITHOUT THE ISSUES." I HAVE NO REASON TO DOUBT D&S PERFOR.ANCE. THANKS FOR YOUR CONCERN, AND HAVE A PLEASANT NIGHT.
