    I'm super happy with how it came out. Now I need to build a car for it. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1427681550.285314.jpg

    Jim, that is so cool, it would look just perfect in a small light weight car, such as a T-bucket ;)

    I am working on doing the same thing. Can you post or send a picture of the intake after you modified it. I will be using a Eaton M90 off a V6 Grand Prix. Your engine looks great and should move any car you build.
  5. If that body wasn't so rusty I would like to have just the body. Well maybe not today but a month ago I would have. It would have made an excellent sleeper.

    It's an old thread now and you've got it running, but I just accidentally found the Magnacharger catalog I looked for awhile back that I'd mentioned earlier. Great job on the intake BTW.

    Old post, but wanted to correct some bad info. The Buick 215 has five head bolts around each cylinder, Olds has six. The Buick blocks have the boss cast in, so it can be drilled, tapped and used with Olds heads. In the Buick application, the bosses closest to the lifter galley are not drilled.
