    I have probably watched that video 1000 times!
    Same with the blue car...Bob O. I think.

    If I had the Diabos shop that close to me I’d probably live at their shop.
    Or maybe get a job just so I could be around it all day!!
    Great Guys!! :)

    I will be contacting them today to build me a tranny that can handle 550 hp. Possibly redo the posi as well depending on the costs involved. Unfortunately, it will have to wait until spring as it's stored in a warehouse surrounded by other boats and cars.

    Did you read article? It says "440 stroker".

    The engine displacement is 530. He was referring to the crank stroke being 440. Hope that clears up the confusion as I'm not really an engine guy.

    I did think that it might have been a 430 stroked to 440.Bruno.

    Lol, I think the vernacular for engine builders is using the term “stroke” in the same sentence as the actual stroke, not having anything to do with total displacement. Hence, a “440 stroker” is an engine with a 4.40” stroke.

    Gary - Keith, Duane and Corey are great guys and have been Buick enthusiast for 30+ years. Its great that you've found them right in your backyard.
