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.

1972 Buick Skylark, TA 288-92H cam.
This is the TA 288-92H cam. Bought cam and lifters used from a reputable source(Jim Weise who is a knowledgeable Buick guru, Hi Jim). TA SP1 intake, 800 QJ carb, Roller rockers, Headers and big 3" pipes all the way to the bumper. This video shows the motor as it looks today and it is different from the original video. The intake is the only visible part changed but the valve covers have been painted Buick red to match the rest of the motor. I like them better red than black as they were. Did the additional motor work earlier in the year but am just now getting around to a new video.
Motor is probably 9:00 to 1 or so comp ratio(cast hyperutectic pistons)as both the block and heads have been milled a total of about .060" and has homebrewed port and bowl work along with stainless stage1 size valves.
Recorded 12/13/09 Best heard with headphones. Oh yeah it's in stereo babee!
Watch how easy it is to make a muscle car handle like a new car. Hotchkis took a 1970 Buick Skylark GS and added the full Hotchkis TVS. Hotchkis offers replacements for most muscle car suspension and upgrades this vintage Buick with Hotchkis springs, sway bars, shocks, control arms, ball joints, tie-rod ends, rear air bag kit and even a new quick ratio steering box.
