Only been to the track for two test& tune sessions so I hope to refine this combo a little more in the spring,all runs made in drive.I'm currently working on an aluminum headed Buick 455 for this car to make it all buick,I just had a sbc already built, setting in the garage so thats why it's chevy powered for now.
