Very nice nunbers gary,Congrats! Is this the highest we've seen for buick?
Very impressive!! Congrats....
I thought of Mike yesterday. He would have been happy see me exceed my expectations, but he would've wanted to know why I didn't make more pulls to find the next 15 or 20 ... He was the epitome of a "go getter".
Wow! way to go Gary, this is what happens with commitment and dedication, the Rewards!
Congratulations Gary !!!!
Awesome job to all involved !!!
At 1150hp I wonder if the extra 15 would really make any difference as compared to abuse to the motor on the dyno.
Glad to hear your results were better than you hoped, know it's been a long road with some questions along the way. Can't wait to see the car run once you get it all sorted out.
Glad you stuck with it and didn't just go the other way, those are serious power number for any make of motor, especially on a single 4
Gonna be fun to click high gear!
Congratulations ! Bad ass ! my Chevy non believers friends will be jealous & wont believe it !
What kind of numbers did Marcella get out or the heads ?
8100-RPM ..... "Holly Balance Batman". Nice job!
great jog! who would have thought this would be done years after mike showed up atthe holodome with the proto alum heads!
Nice numbers, nice guy,nice car!
Thanks for the kind words everyone.
Isn't/wasn't there a phone app to upload pictures?
Nick, The "model" port that JM did was around 400 from .700 to .900 lift.
Mine have not been on a bench, they merely received the CNC treatment from Scott Brown.
No need for an app, the website automatically resizes the pics now, takes just a min but works fine

Damn it boy,..it just looks strong
Looks intimidating just sitting there on the stand.
Great numbers Gary. You should be very pleased.
Wow! Great accomplishment! What did JM do the port?
Gary is the weight of the car with you in it? 3370lbs
I'm hoping to get it closer to 3150 after some updates that have been done. I'm also eyeing some things that will eventually get it closer to 3100, but I don't want to take away from the "look".
Basically Scott Brown gave John a Buick head to put his interpretation into. Easily duplicated and no rearranging.
Scott now has a CNC program to duplicate what I have which are based on a Stage 2 Track Eliminator casting.
