It's not Buick related, but I figured you guys might get a kick out of this.
Got my Blazer back on my buddy's dyno a couple months back...she laid down 825 rwhp and 899 rwtq. 370 cubic inches, 80 mm turbo, 23 psi boost, E85 fuel....drive it anywhere.
I can't wait till the Skylark makes noises like this.
I was not able to find a drain flange mount of the design I wanted...so I built my own.
Started out with a hunk of bar stock
Finally got some work done on the Buick again.
Got the wastegates fitted up...which is a seemingly simple deal, but takes FOREVER when you're trying to make things as symmetrical as possible. Not to mention, working with sch 10 stainless is a total bish.
Intercooler showed up...and of course, the first thing that was required was to cut it up. lol.
Cut the straight outlet off and welded on a 90* elbow. Also have some more work to do on it...will post pics once its done.
Decided to hack up the core support as well, for intercooler/radiator clearance.
Had to do some trimming of the core support to allow the IC to tuck back into it. Welded tabs to the support to mount the IC.
Also ordered a Ron Davis radiator today...great guys to work with...but that hurt the wallet. lol. Should be here in a couple weeks.
