Sorry long time no posts.
I got a new job that is taking a lot of my time.
So since I don't have a pickup truck and I love gm a-bodies I took advantage of a nice lol trade and got this 1970 so camino 350/350.
It needs a interior overhaul but runs fine.
I 'll also do a disc brake conversion and I will finally build a chevy 350...lol..
At least I do top end kit + lumpy cam to wake it up. As well as 29.5/10.5 rear tires etc.
The wife Actualy likes Caminos .
So there goes my new " pickup"
Very cool! You will enjoy the low $ on the parts!! I love my 83 and 79 Chevy trucks for that! ...
correct... i already do..lol headliner 59$ etc.
SBC will get some " budget" goodies too
My new job keeps me busy so I still work on this turbo beast.
Here a lil pic update.
Nice El Camino
I'd have to put a Buick engine in it tho, just to piss off the Chevy guys
Well but that would defeat the budget purpose... Nothing s as cheap as chevy stuff especially sbc.
I thought you would like this truck I am working on with a friend.. $200 truck, I donated the 6.0 and he is fabbing up the turbo kit.
Havent been on here for a long time.
And i dont want to lie i had a lil lack of motivation to work on my buick.
Further i was rather working on a 70' Elco that i got in a trade. I stuffed a 468 ci th 400 combo in it. I did all body and paintwork myself (1st time) .
The 68 GS 350 CALIFORNIA TT is back on track.
The TT. Runs and scares the **** out of my neighbours .
I need to find a downpipe leak and fix it.
Setup AFR and BOOSTgauge and get a Dyno tune. ( its race season so its too busy/expensive now.)
The interior is comin together.
Panels/ headliner are in.
the Gto seats needs some wiring and get bolted in. The rear seats need to get custom fitted too.
I built a nice shifter bracket/ mount for my b&m ratchet. ( love this things)
Work is killing me but i feel like i have to bring this thread back alive...
so here is the status
Car is running, sounds mean
NEEDs a tune
it rips the rear end at 3.5k rpm bad.... you got to hold on to it...
I finialized the interior...04 GTO seats
they needed some custom fitting but i had a smart moment and made it work...
Don't think anyone with the Burton Turbos have ever got it all fine tuned to a T.
Check out the Turbo Buick site, maybe those boys have a dial in recipe that will work for you.
Just went through the whole thread. What a bad ass build! Love the Pro-Touring look!
Guys sorry for not reporting for a while but i had several changes going on and live got in the way again.
New Job, Sold and ought a new house and moved from expensive CALI to BIG TEXAS.
what a transition.
But i love it.
So im planning to revitalize my Buick
BUT i might disappoint you because i will convert the Buick back to N/A!
Its time to do his and make it a reliable Streetcar that i can take to shows and drive. ( i have never thought i'd say this )
In order to do this i think i will move this to another forum section .. " High Tech for Old Iron"
