Need help in decission. Have a Limited with 153,000 org. Mi.
Would like to build an 11 second motor.
I live in NY.
The block is a well season motor. Woman owned car.Would like to use mostly on street.
Pistons, I know, what else would anyone do?
I plan on running a 49-52 turbo. Should I have the heads done? Steel caps?
I already have a walboro pump,and 009's injecters.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
One last thing should I make sure they use this block? Any recommendations?
Thanks sorry this is so long,
Robert

Hey Robert, How have you been?

Absolutly do the two middle steel caps and have a port job and bowel clean up work done to the heads. You know, just to make it flow better.
Maybe call "Champion" about the head work and ask what wll serve you better.

That's about all I can add at this point.

Jason, Hello, I'm fine. Thanks for the input.
Should I go for balancing. Want to this once.I found someone who rebuilds. But gives you a done motor. I know alot of these cars have been through alot. Think the motor is important?Or am I making too much out of this?
Regards,
Robert

Well it worked on mine at least.


Call and speak to a knowlegable Buick cylinderhead machinist. That's what I did.

Balancing is a must in my book.

I say over build it slightly and build it to last. J.S.
