Offset grinding is stroking.

Put your effort into the proper 'Buick' clearances, proper cam selection to match the heads, etc. The 350 Buick heads can be ported to flow better than just about any other iron small block head out there. Whoever does the heads needs to know that the stem height/tip height needs to be properly set. This isn't a small block Chevy!!
Best way to make more power will be with boost.
