    Did you buy one Gary?

    I wish I had the funds. I finally bought a set of Stage 2 heads yesterday. I've been wanting them for many years.

    I agree Gary. It would be nice to see some of the projects as they unfold. I know they're out there, as I've built a fair amount of Tomahawk oil pans so far.

    I will definitly get one for my next race engine build, but until that day when I'm ready (and can afford it), I hope like hell that my current 523 holds together!!! :)

    Let's see some pictures!!

    I did not buy one Tom,I'm at a crossroads right now and have not decided which direction to go for sure.
    If I had unlimited funds,I could probably get where I want to go w/ a Buick......However,That is not yet the case.

    Buick V8 Performance has sadly been left behind in my opinion.
    I was hoping a block would rejuvenate the cause but judging from what I've seen there are a few people that will improve their program w/ this block but a good number of them will be bought for novelty.....You know,The guy that wants to say "I've got a 572 Buick" at the car show :sleep:

    i havent decided how to build mine yet. id like to stay n/a but id like to see us get a head comparable to something like the pontiac guys have. otherwise 572" prob wont be much better than 500"

    Pontiacs definitely have it good.I just read an article on an A-body LeMans/Tempest that runs low 9's at 3700lbs.
    It was a 535 CI engine w/ 10" tires,Stock suspension and a T-400.

    We may have it put together for divisional Super Gas race in May, depending on turn around time on some of the parts. Got a manifold done for 572 inches , single carb, pan and block are done. Working on a cam profile for lower rpm bigger cube and cyl head limited app..going in the SkyHawk. I'll add pictues as the motor comes together and finds it place in the chassi.
