    Time for new rods, cam, gear drive, and likely some other odds and ends...

    So I have my S2 at my builder to go through. With the issues I had last year with water getting in the cylinders from my leaky (cracked) S2 heads, I am not suprised that he found the rings shot in (3) cyl, (3) bent rods (carillo 6.5" BBC H-Beams), and chunks missing in the cam from making...

    10.11 @ 129.62 ... ProEFI Flex fuel 3650lb Street car GN on 255 radials

    Well, was looking for a 9.90 yesterday, but thanks to constant 35mph head winds all day, it didn't happen. This car had been 10.20s @ 133mph last time out with 1.5X 60 foot times, so my plan was just to get the 60 down into the mid 1.4s and click off a 9.9X...... Well, instead up picking up...

    Header gaskets? Best to use?

    Hey there buick community, I've always eliminated header gaskets and only run copper RTV on every turbo buick I have ever owned. I am considering switching to running gaskets if there is a better product out there now that people are having great success with. For some reason, on my GN street...

    My 87 GN street car is under the knife at the moment getting a ProEFI installed. I will be using a flex fuel sensor, running e85, and using the ProEFI as the turbo controller, two step, and eventually traction control. I figured I would start a thread about it and update once the car is running...

    Thanks Cal + Holly! And Thank you FAST XFI!!

    Just wanted to post and share that I had some issues with my XFI last year which were NOT the fault of the box, but rather I had an electrical gremlin that turned out to be the ignition switch on my t type. In any case my ignition switch electrical problems ended up causing some damage in the...
