2007 Charger R/T muffler delete interior sound
A few people have asked for interior sound of my charger with a deleted or
removed muffler but resonators were kept on. Here it is, sorry it took so
long. Only other modification is a cold air intake that I made by basically
removing the filter box and sticking a cone filter in its place at the end
of the intake tubing.

"11-SECOND-STEVE" and his 1986 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL at FLoyd Bennet Muscle Car Show! 6-10-2012
I finally got to meet "11-Second-Steve" in person today at The Floyd Bennet
Field Auto/Muscle Car Show! Actually, if it wasn't for Steve's invite(s)
... I would have missed a really great display of ... AUTOMOBILES!!!
Steve wants to race his 1986 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal against mine. ME TOO!
Steve also informed me as to how to do a BURNOUT ... "correctly!" Steve
stated that Ginger's Burnout with my Stage-1 Regal was BETTER than mine
(Youtube video)! LOL
Steve's Regal is SWEET ... put together correctly. I learned a few
performance/traction mods from him.
STEVE RAN AN 11:90 THIS WEEKEND ,,, without manually-shifting the Buick! He
just put the shifter in DRIVE ... and let the 455 & the TH400 automatic
transmission do the rest!
Guess who showed up also????
1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1,
with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two,
loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011
issue of HOT ROD Magazine.
buick GS 455 stage 1 first startup on engine stand
This is the first startup of my 455 stage 1 after rebuild! It crashed few
months ago :((.
Exhausts on this teststand are the
stock cast headers. carb is a beautyfull barry grant 850 demon on an
edelbrock 455 performance intake. cam is a SP 1165R, 112LC. Later, we
replaced it with a stock GS cam for smoother running. TA 1.65 red roller
rockers. heads flowed and ported. SP/FM hypereutectic pistons. Kenne Bell
valve covers. they look kinda cool, don't they?
This should push around 390HP with the stock cam and around 430HP with the
SP cam! runs like a baby :). listen!
