I love Buicks, always have; and think that with the body of knowledge on how to build these motors, I can give an LSanything a run for its money with the same amount of dollars spent. That means a LS7 or LS3 with a blower costs between 13,000 and 17,000. I say I can build a Buick motor that performs better for the same or less dollars....
So here it starts.
I have a 1976 block that I bought a long, long time ago - it's at the machine shop getting bored, and girdle attached
Here it is after it was done wrong:
add two of these
a couple of these
yeah, I know some on here don't like Edelbrock heads... let me save you the rant - I don't care what you think... I'm selling tickets to the event of "I told you so" when I'm done with this build - so please, if you feel the need, do buy a ticket and wait in line
and I had these laser cut
To recap, expected HP is 700, torque should be close to that number; all in by 5500. It's going in a 70 Skylark (my avatar) with a suspension that is tubular, boxed, and braced for road racing; large disk brakes and (to be changed) 3.73 gears.
It will be port fuel injected and I probably will build the manifold for it, and I am building the headers.
This upgrade should be done by end of summer
