    GS Kubisch THE "CUT-UP" BUICK

    I thought of Mike yesterday. He would have been happy see me exceed my expectations, but he would've wanted to know why I didn't make more pulls to find the next 15 or 20 ... He was the epitome of a "go getter".

    At 1150hp I wonder if the extra 15 would really make any difference as compared to abuse to the motor on the dyno.

    Glad to hear your results were better than you hoped, know it's been a long road with some questions along the way. Can't wait to see the car run once you get it all sorted out.

    Glad you stuck with it and didn't just go the other way, those are serious power number for any make of motor, especially on a single 4

    GS Kubisch THE "CUT-UP" BUICK

    Thanks for the kind words everyone.

    Isn't/wasn't there a phone app to upload pictures?

    Nick, The "model" port that JM did was around 400 from .700 to .900 lift.

    Mine have not been on a bench, they merely received the CNC treatment from Scott Brown.

    No need for an app, the website automatically resizes the pics now, takes just a min but works fine

    I'm hoping to get it closer to 3150 after some updates that have been done. I'm also eyeing some things that will eventually get it closer to 3100, but I don't want to take away from the "look".


    Basically Scott Brown gave John a Buick head to put his interpretation into. Easily duplicated and no rearranging.
    Scott now has a CNC program to duplicate what I have which are based on a Stage 2 Track Eliminator casting.
