CDS 1987 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL COLD-AIR UPDATE#1. 1-13-2013
Mid-11's-Steve suggested I purchase a BATTERY TENDER to eliminate the
battery's loss of charge over time sitting. The Spectre 4-inch aluminum
upper intake plenum with a custom 5-inch diameter cold-air intake tube will
finally replace the 14-inch open element air cleaner this Spring. Thanks
again to "No_Lift/Mike P." of V8buick.com for schooling me on COLD AIR
INTAKE TUBING SIZE REQUIREMENTS.
1964 Buick 455 Special (Red Beast) STAGE-2 belonging to BRUNO & BRUNO JR!!! 9-4-2011
THIS video is for sure SELF-EXPLANATORY!!!
I went to visit "The-King" earlier today to purchase a BUICK 455 H.E.I.
DISTRIBUTOR that accepts a vacuum advance canister ... and HIS SON BRUNO
JR. was there! This 1964 Buick 455 Stage-2 Special runs low-9's on ALL
BUICK 455 MOTOR!!! Notice the vacuum reading?
There's a video on Youtube of Bruno Jr. in North Carolina taking this BEAST
down the 1/4-mile hard!
I hate this Buick
The tires were shot because of a serious alignment issue so I went
underneath to see if anything was loose and at first I thought it was the
inner tie rod but it turned out that the steering rack has some play in it.
I wish I could drive this thing into the swamp and light it on fire lol.

CDS 1987 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL "FISHTAIL SCARE!" lol 10-21-2012
Okay; I drove the Stage-1 to Pontiac-Alley today to replace the FAN RELAY
switch that controls my twin DERAL electric fans. We did so ... the fans
STILL REFUSE to engage WITHOUT being wired DIRECTLY into the BATTERY.
I am off for the next 2-day, so that's my project; CHECKING THE
WIRING/CONNECTIONS TO THE FAN RELAY BOX.
I need new/good TIRES out back BADLY!!! All I do now is spin the tires just
I TOOK THE MOTOR TO 5000-RPM instead of my announced 3000-RPM ... by
mistake. THANK GOD for the MSD-REV-LIMITER!!! LOL
Tyrone suggested returning this week so he & I can figure this out.
