    I had Nick look at the heads to see if there was engineering numbers from Buick. He said he found them.lol 72869062917__16B8EA95-E349-4A47-8604-4C6F36745569.jpeg 72869064255__961F24B2-C0CF-4057-81D9-C246F8FCAF44.jpeg 72869069310__A6D2EEB9-7468-4269-9768-510C41D14ACA.jpeg

    I was going through some buckets today and I found some pictures from the last car show September 1995 before my oldest daughter was born. I had the original window sticker on a passenger side, rear window and had pair of fire stone slicks on the rear. The first two pictures are of my buddies car around the corner. The orange car was originally a GS 350 now has a strong Tom Wagner built 455 under the hood running 12.00 to 11.70.

    Reason, I saw the great pictures from the GS nationals of the stage 2 cars particularly the red one. My stage 1 is a low option car from the factory. Power steering and has always had a nasty exhaust note compliments of the KB 107. The factory stage 2 cam is mild compared to the 107. I came across a deal for a hydraulic roller with a nasty idol. I figured I’ll give it a shot and see what kind of power the factory iron stage 2 heads with SPX intake manifold will make. Idle quality is not a concern KB switch pitch 149 wired to the brake pedal +430 gears.
