    This would make more sense if it was posted 4/1. I'm shocked and speechless. It would seem that pigs really will fly! Look out below!!!

    straight from mike too , thumbs up to him and TA
    time to start saving pennies.
    it will be fun to see more 350 engines with 400 or more hp
    it would seem porting my irons might not be worth the effort
    hope this works out

    Not to mention Bill M. has already taken it over 1000hp!!

    in a build perhaps suited to drag strip only. with, at longest, weekly tear downs. definitely not suitable for daily driver or any other form of racing.

    speaking of which, hey Bill, any more word on an upcoming zine article or any further developments on that engine?

    you might want to bump the zine about the story and point them towards TA's new plans. that might give them some impetus to finally send it to print.

    time to kill some bbb?

    dude. we'll have plenty of mopars, fords and chevies to kill. no need to beat up on the other Rodney Dangerfields of the performance world.

    The 350 head will follow.

    once that's done is there any possibility of transposing the valves to the earlier engine configuration. i've noticed that you've started doing a bit of business in Rover/Buick 215 rebuilding, that could come in handy.

    I called TA today and asked to put in an order for a SP-1 intake for the 350 and the guy said:

    "You meen the stage 1 for the 350"

    I said

    "No we've been waiting for a single plane intake for a few years now and Mike anounced it will be made"

    He said

    "I'll go check"

    came back and said "give me your info, we'll let you know when its close to ready"

    I gave him my info and said thanks.

    Am I excited or what!!!! THANKS TA!!!

    Educate me fella's. What are the advantages of a single plane intake over the dual plane for our engines? I thought dual offers better pick up from 0-2500 rpm's. And don't these engines suffer good ole torque?

    The SP intake will be better in top end. The reason these motors peak at hp at around 5500 rpm even with a big cam is because they are running out of air in the higher rpm. This intake will let us take advantage of ported heads and big cams.

    Dang, I wasn't planning on a new intake for my future build. Thought I could use my TA stage 1 intake.

    If your going mild on the build up then the stage 1 is just fine.

    It is us crazy guys who want to go to the extreme with all the goodies that need the single plane.

    Tom, am I really under carbed, with the 650 edelbrock, I think it is a 650 and not a 600 ? I am using the c110 cam, 9:1 comp, TA intake, headers,
    3:42 gears. Ordered Stall converter.

    I'll take a pair!
    I'll modify a 350 cam, fabricate an intake for my 215/Rover strokers, and use them anyway.
    The cam mod is easy enough for anyone. Maybe, someday down the road, they could do a manifold for the 215/Rover deck height, a pair of 3/8" spacers for the 300 deck height, and have -everyone- covered.

    I'm no expert but I'm going to say, yes, you are under carbed. Should be running a 750cfm minimum with that combo.

    But what do I know?

    Thanks to Mike and TA for supporting the Buick community. A 350 didn't go in my current project do to lack of after market parts. It will be going in my next project.

    This is very good news!

    Now once I get my 464 together and get kicked out of the track for going too fast. And after I get the T-Type in the 11's, I can make my GS fast.

    Thanks Mike! I'll be calling you guys in a week for some more 455 stuff.

    Maybe you could come with with some way for folks to directly support this project?

    Have some sort of group buy or sell special stickers, hats, Tshirts that money goes directly toward the SBB project?

    Could even once near close to production sell tickets to win one for free or even just for a place in line. Who gets first dibs on the first run.
