A List of Known Turbo Buick Powered Vehicles (engine swaps):
Thought I would create a thread that would display all known LC2 powered vehicles. Should be quite a bit of great info for someone stumbling across this forum for the first time. This list is updated each time I find a new engine swap. If you know of a conversion, but don't see it listed here, please email me directly with pictures or a link to the vehicle in question.

BTW, I have also seen or heard of the following running a GN drivetrain:

- 1969 Camaro - seen at GS Nationals, blew tranny on his second run

- Late 80's camaro convertible - also at GS nationals, turquoise green, ran 11's

- BMW 3-Series - built back in the late 80's by a custom builder

if anyone has more info on any of these, feel free to pipe in...

Hey, great idea. Do not know if the following have websites or not, so chime in if you see your name here or have a car or project you want to display:

Derek Grubb - 240Z
RogueVette - Stage II Vette
John Schmidt - Stage II Opel GT
Antonio Longo - BuFord (Mustang GT)
Under construction - Datsun 510 in So FL
Under construction - MatGNZ (guess :D :D )
Under construction - Roger's Geo Metro
Under construction - Chris' Volvo
Under construction - TAZ's kit car
Under construction - Greg's GT6.

Suggest we make the list a Sticky in this forum and we can keep updating it as get feedback on others.

Matt Weiser has a Malibu Wagon
Lee Josephs has a MCSS and a Corvair.

One day (soon?), I hope to have the Buick 3.8 in my SS as well.


The guys @ Splitfire have a red Datsun (IIRC) with a Stage II in it. There are pics in the gallery. The owner's name is Paul.

They did my aluminum intercooler pipes. yup

An oldie but a goody.


I actually tried to buy this car but the day I called Dave he told me someone beat me to it. It wasn;t for sale long if I remember correctly. I found out about it and called like a week after it went up for sale (If memory serves me right.) I wonder what happened to it. I think I will e-mail super Dave and find out if he has kept up with the new owner. I can let you know if I find out any new info if anyone is interested. Cheers !!!

P.S.- Dave is as kool as a fan and knows his stuff. Check out his site if you get the chance.
