Nice!! what cav is this? The one you got from jowek70 had a sunroof unless you shaved that hole shut?
No this is a different one I decided to start with a more complete car this one ran and drove before I took it apart picked it up for 300 completely rust free interior decent and I was told the engine had no oil pressure but I through another sensor in and I was all good

Hoping for around 500 HP and finally wont have to worry about the manual exploding.

But more to come

Nope, now you'll just have to worry about rebuilding the auto every month.

Unless you're going to one of the 4 speed options.

And now you officially have my full attention! Glad to hear there's no "built" 3 speed.

I'll definitely be keeping my eyes on this one. 3500 with a lot of boost, and the ability to launch should be a fast bitch. :love:

Since I'm only just over a couple hours away, where do you run? And do you ever find yourself in need of a good hand?

I think that'll make 500HP easy.

Lol is this sarcastic or you think so :)
nope, no sarcasm.

My camaro has basically the same mods...

If you look at the HP calculator on here :

Your FBOMB weighs about 3150 pounds and can run the 1/4 mile in about 11.26 seconds. This computes to about 436.10 HP at the wheels, and about 566.93 HP at the flywheel.
That's at pretty low boost, slighlty larger NON-BB turbo. I also think my car is heavier than 3150 with me in it, I just ballparked it... Likely closer to 3400 lbs... Which converts to 470WHP / 611HP

:)

You'll have fun with the car. 3500's are reliable at high boost as well. I say add in a meth inj. kit for good measure.

Ok lol That's what I'm thinking about pure methanol but I've never heard anyone doing that.
But with e85 I never saw any knock or overheating issues with it. I actually sold my Meth kit cause I just never used it anymore

But as far as needing a 3500 I just got one but the top end maybe but the engines are kinda cheap to be putting a crap load of money in to it

damn thats the turbo i wanted to use, but again I could not find any maps to see where abouts I'll be in the turbo efficiency. I'm still curious about the spool times, is your BB?, but anyways let me know how that turbo goes and maybe I'll sell mines and get that one or be content with what I have now.

Yea i talked with precision a few times before deciding about it. also lots of reading on the GN and Buick forums the ppl that get them just love them and im going with a hair smaller exhaust side to make up for a huge turbo
