Hey guys.... Looking to improve my car some and go from Turbo Buick engine to a 427 RHS block build.

Have Billy Briggs helping with engine 427 PTE98mm turbo
Rossler 4L80E trans w/lock up
MadMan helping with rear 9" with 3:25gear

I'll post pic's when I start mocking up the new package!

Looking to go into Small Block Power Adder class on Drag Week.

Pictures of car the way it was: 10.32@133 on pump gas/Drag Radials

Those are some impressive numbers for a pump gas combination and a V6!

Are you running a drag radial on the car?

Can't wait to see what you can do with a turbo charged V8, especially knowing that your looking at Billy Briggs.  He builds some high HP motors.  I would image that mid 8's shouldn't be a problem.   

Hopefully you can make it to one of the Milan's Friday Night Events.  Even if you only run one event you will have a blast racing heads-up. 

Keep us posted on the build with some updates!

Love to get together! You guy's have one of the fastest coolest Stang's on the Planet even though I know your GN guy's Lol.

yea.. I just left with 6psi on the line with the foot brake on my old setup on 93 pump gas no alky or anything with 17-18psi total and 18deg of timing.
All on mostly used parts off turbobuick.com.

The engine is being built now.. RHS block.. Mast heads Hyd. roller cam. Rossler is building the trans
and I'm having MadMan out of LA build the rear and have him help me tweak it down there where it'll
hook (stock torque arm) deal.. he's been 7.40's@188 on his setup with drag radial.

I can put it all together but need help getting it to the ground.

The big single turbo is here.. now to find a good place to stuff it.

Place out of WA is going to help with the 6" air/air IC with 4" in/out

I'll post pic's when I get it started to mock up in the car.

Also have a 69 Camaro with very similar build with twins going together. Fun Wink

Have a great Thanksgiving guys!

We should have the engines here for both the 69 Camaro and my 86. They are both very similar builds I think the 69 engine will be a few cubes bigger (larger bore block)
He's going with a pair of 67's
And I'm going to run this one single PT98. (Picture below)

January will be a real buizy month of fab here with both cars.
How's the Stang coming along?Huh
Talk to you soon,
Scott~

Stang is coming along slowly. The 98 makes the Buick 70 look really small. Pictures when you get the motor. Makes us busy but the results are very satifying.

The 70 looks like a stock turbo for a Buick.  At least that is the feeling you get after dealing with the large frame turbos, give it time you will have the same impression.

I'm really out of my comfort zone here.... Much bigger engine than I've been using and much bigger turbo.

My normal budget includes used parts that I get on a heck of a deal and stuff!

A engine that has all new stuff in it and a good transmission is going to be a big change!

Just blessed with the help I'm getting from a good customer and friend.

Mock up starts the week between christmas and new year!

You will be really out of your confort zone the first few times having that turbo on kill mod.  Especially on a marginal track were the tires are spining on the big end, trust me the butt pucker factor goes up with more horsepower.

I didn't have the parts to mock up the Camaro... so I worked on the Chevelle Wagon and put a pair of twins up front.... Going to use stock GN turbo's .. but I had a couple 70's laying around so pop'd them on to mock things up.... also put in Caddy LED tails... One done.. doing the other this week.

Hope to Make the Power Tour!

I take it the wagon is a mostly stock LS based motor?

Either way I'm there will be plenty of power to play with while cruising on the Power Tour.

Right now it's a stock 4.8L that I got off craigslist for 175.00  It had a snapped #6 rod from a injector stiking open on start up.. had 40,000mi  Pushed a new rod on and two valves.. freshend up heads and back together... Cheaper than anything else could have gotten.

The Nice thing is once the work is done.. If I ever change the engine to a bigger LS.. everthing fits.

If I ever want to upgrade turbos.... everything fits being GN turbos... so All my work fab'n is done

one time.  Just got HHR door handles to put in all 4 doors. Smiley  Took me a month to find a yard that would

cut out the sheet metal around each door  and the guts for the handles! 

More pix to come soon Smiley
