The cylinder head project was interesting. Keith requested that I contact Mike to see if he had a scrap Stage 2 SE head laying around so Duane could do some R&D. Mike - we already know all there is to know about that head. Me - beats me, just following through with a request. Mike - OK, I'll get one sent out. And he did, quickly and at a reasonable cost. And Duane was able to spend some quality time in R&D. I think Ken's engine is heading to the engine dyno when done, something we couldn't do with mine because the machine shop Keith and Duane use was in the middle of a dyno update - the old one was removed and the new one was sitting in boxes with no near future time table for installation. My son recently started his own business with a college friend in Buffalo, NY, and part of that business includes a mobile chassis dyno. I think they will be in the Syracuse area in early October, and I'd like to get both Buicks on it. Regarding dynos, and with all due respect, I'd be pretty scared myself to install an engine in a car that was misbehaving on a dyno. Static vs dynamic forces on oiling systems should co-operate regardless of where the engine is. There are static forces at the track too, during the burnout, not too much different than a pull on a dyno except for the load and some rpm. JMHO.
