Johnnylark's 1972 Buick 455 SKYLARK is a TORQUE-MONSTER!!! 7-3-2016
Johnnylark is THE-MAN. The TA Performance camshaft he has is the one a step down from my TA290-08H ... and it sound DEVASTATING. Ever since my Holley 850 and engine's TOTAL timing was "tampered with," my 455 does not sound like Johnny's (as they did sound identical since day-1) anymore. Tyrone and my timing lights do NOT read TOTAL timing, that why my motor is currently experiencing "extreme detonation/pinging above 3000-rpm with an extreme loss in POWER. Tyrone is getting his brother's timing light that reads TOTAL timing this coming week. Then, my total timing will be set 33-34 degrees total. The video prior to this one is FIRE 👍👍💪💪💯💯💯💯 ... really shows the TORQUE of Johnny's 455 Buick ... but needs editing before I can upload it. No lie ... his Buick 455 "PULLS LIKE A DAMN FREIGHT TRAIN ... in ANY GEAR!!!"
JOHNNYLARK'S Stage-1 Buick 455 Skylark with "TA286-08H" Camshaft & 1.6 Rockers!!! 5-30-2013
This was a COOL DAY! I finally met "Johnnylark" of V8buick.com at the Home Depot Parking Lot MUSCLE CAR MEET. YOU MUST SEE THE "entrance" Johnnylark made with his 1972 Buick Skylark's 1971 (10-compression) Buick 455 Stage-1 motor with TA Performance's "286-08H" cam CHOPPING like crazy accompanied by his TA PERFORMANCE 1.6 ROCKERS! Johnny & his COOL son "John" made my day. In the video I recorded prior to this one ... I stated that there's NO Buick Muscle Cars attending ... and felt disappointed until I heard ... we ALL heard this Buick 455 Stage-1 chopping "Sinister-Like." This is a very similar cam to that I have in my '87 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal (currently at the Dyno Shop). The guy in the white wife-beater suggesting that Johnny "reverse it in," actually stated a few seconds before that ... "A car like THIS shouldn't be over there by itself." Classic! JOHNNY IS THE COOLEST!!!
