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!

1971 Buick Riviera 455ci engine rebuild start up
For more information on this engine build please go to:
This Buick 455 came to us with a distinct knock from the bottom end, it had
been rebuilt 2 or 3 times by others but was still knocking and suffering
with low oil pressure.
Normally we do not remove and fit engines but this time we made an
exception, we removed the engine, stripped it and cleaned all parts,
decided which new parts we needed and when they arrived we set about
getting this engine as perfect as possible.
After a lot of hard work we got her finished and installed back into the
1971 Buick Riviera.
