Thanks guys! Yeah, it's a lot of fun at the car shows, the chevy dudes looking with confusion into the engine bay expecting the ubiquitous small block, not to mention those who think it is.
yup.gif


Yes, those are seats from Park Avenues (2) - passengers along with 18X8" IROCs..

Sweet. I've always thought about doing another one. I got a lot of mixed opinions about putting a Buick power plant in my old el Camino 12 years ago but I loved it. I think next one will be turbo sbc.

What did you do for the fuel tank?

Your turbo-elky was one of those that inspired me to do my own and I did receive advice from you back when I put mine together. So, thanks again, and to your question about the gas tank, I was fortunate in that my car happened to be a fuel injected 4.3 chevy V-6, so therefore had the proper fuel pump hanger for the more powerful turbo-buick fuel pump.

Oh sweet. Yeah the gas tank is a big piece to have. I remember talking to you now. That was quite a while ago. Car looks good man.

I like it!

Quick question, where did you come across the turbo 6 emblems located on the fenders behind the front wheel openings?
