  • My 1950 Buick Sedanette Project - (pic heavy)

    Love the look of the 50 Buick, but not the performance.

    With that, on the journey of redoing the driveline/suspension.

          cool.... I made big bucks scrapping what I didn't use. That said, I did send the motor off to a friend who's developing an aluminum head and turbo system for the 248/263s
          Doing it all wrong since 1966

            I hear ya, I got a good chunk of change selling the driveline to a couple of guys who are building a 49 Sedanette.

                  The engine is now a 383. Thunder Works Engines decked and O ringed the block, bored & honed the cylinders, align bored the block, assembled the bearings, rods, pistons. Installed a new 4" stroke forged crank and balanced the engine.

                    Roller cam and hydraulic roller lifters.

                    I got a pretty aggressive profile on this cam. This was a custom grind built for the components, geometry and application for this engine by master cam builder Mike Jones of Jones Cam Designs.

                      it continues to blow me away that the hydraulic rollers in a LS motor are the same as the hydraulic rollers in a gen 1 sbc....
                      still, o-ring... that says "boost".... how much? what flavor?

                        The plan is to run twin garrett gtx4508r's @ 30 psi - we'll see how my wallet will be able to achieve this.

                            Picked this LS1 LS6 Holley Weiand Cathedral Port High Flow Intake w/ FAST Billet Rails, 36lb Injectors, & Stock Throttle Body off of Ebay. Needs a little bit of a clean up. Will be replacing the injectors with higher lb ones.
