Yikes...stock crank shaft too? What max RPM do you expect to see with it? Guestimate on Max Tq/rpm?
Yea it's all Buick stuff, even big ole wiesco pistons, I'm going to limit rpm to 6200, I set high goals so when I don't reach them I can tell myself,.."well that was a little farfetched anyway" ha, it will make a ton of power tho over 700 I'm sure. As far as TQ goes I have no idea, the engine on 93 octane NA with the Dominator made 588 at 4700 or so, on e85 it was stronger so maybe closer to 600ftlbs, with the blower who knows, it will be substantial ha
Torque and hp will be over 600 at the wheel. If you boost it to 7 or 8 pounds it will see over 700. Either way it will make a ton more with every pound of boost.
Theys a 3.85 pulley on eBay, that's got my name all over it ha
Got something very cool on the way ,.....
Oh do tell...no secrets on v8 buick.....
Gonna be a little bit b4 I can have Champion beadlock them, but these should give it the proper attitude adjustment
Wow. Those will be very nice w locks. Congrats on the choice!!!!
It hurt the ole wallet pretty bad ha, but wth...
The rears are 10in with a 3.5bs so it will have a wicked lip
10" with 3.5 bs will never fit unless you narrow the rear.
I narrowed it 4in few years ago, current wheels are 3.75 and they are just a touch to close to the 1/4 panel, gonna do the 3.5 with aluminum drums that should make it perfect
All this talk and no pics of the car? Slacker!
It looks like we will have 6 street ProCharged BBB's. Jim B, John Jr., Bobb M, and me are up running (or in my case have been running.) Will be adding Gary Paine and Hugger.
Looks like I will be the slowest.
I have a plan...........that plan includes getting the new street/strip car finished, put together and running with a big CI Tomahawk / NA. I'll run the car in that configuration to get all the "bugs" out for a season, maybe two. The goal here is high 9's. That's "phase 1" of the plan. "Phase 2" will be to add a ProCharger & peripherals and get the HP well up over 1000+. The goal for phase 2 is high/mid 8's. The bad part is that by the time I get this all finished and functional I'll most likely be number 25 or 30 on this list.....and ready to move into a "elderly living home"!! LOL
Then again..... plans can change!! LOL
Phase 3 from the home is twins? Maybe 88's?
If turbos are included, I'll be the slowest! (and probably the heaviest)
I thought hard and heavy about a big single like 91 or 94mm but as much as I love Turbos you just lose the muscle car sound. But nothing looks as sexy as all the plumbing and the sound of a big turbo getting spooled up and then the feeling of getting rearended when the power comes in
Like I stated...."plans can change"! LOL The twins could very well become the phase 2 version. Put it this way...... phase 2 will be to add "boost", however it's accomplished! LOL
PS... Hugger, your car should be "killer" with the boost and those wheels!!!
Steve with your engineering and machining ability, you should do either a custom Cog drive F1x setup with 1in brackets. Or a F3r crank drive
We'll wait till the hood is finished and the wheels are on,...then maybe a couple ride along and walk around vids.
And guys these Viking shocks are so much fun, with some Moog small block Nova springs, I can literally pull the fronts on the street just gooching it, I would need to slow the rebound for track duty but man it's a blast just messing around on the street it just throws the front up. Buddy of mine were messing around , him in his Turbo LS powered fox body and he said they came up a couple in leaving a red light. That's probably gonna change with the new converter that's going in tho
