PONTIAC ALLEY with "T.K."/ Buick 455 Stage-1 Regal TCI Shifter Update #8. 7-16-2011
The TCI shifter looks DEVASTATING!!! Tyrone did a perfect install ... considering there were parts MISSING ... apparently Giovanni's shop "mis-placed" them. After the "TCI" became "a-walk-in-the-park-to-me," I decided to raise the "idle" on the Holley750 by 100-rpm. The Stage-1 refused to turn over! The starter was NOT engaging. I immediately "knew" it had to be the orange-thinner-gauge wire I used on the starter ... instead of the THICKER GAUGED RED WIRE I was supposed to use. This video shows that thin/incorrect wire "melted" onto the TA Exhaust header tube. Tomorrow after work ... I am correcting this. I have the correct wire now. The aluminum plate for the TCI shifter column will be purchased next weekend ... and I will then be able to mount the (Park, Reverse, etc) shifter plate securely. NEXT-STOP; BRAND-NEW HOLLEY 850-CFM from Holley.com!!!!!
My D&S Performance Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal's TCI Mega-Shifter Update #3. 7-15-2011
This is THE-BIG-DAY!!! I just bought the Stage-1 home from the garage ... waiting for Tyrone's 2:40pm arrival, so we go install my TCI Mega-Shifter!!! I am scheduled to follow Tyrone to his shop ... I'm hoping HE drives the Stage-1 to "PONTIAC ALLEY" as I record for V8buick.com; A PONTIAC-GUY LOVING A BUICK 455 STAGE-1 REGAL!!! LMATFO!!! NOTICE#1; I gave the Stage-1 a few "revs" at the black Mustang ... whose driver gave me a nice "head-nod." NOTICE#2; The white Infiniti "got scared" and abruptly made a quick-left turn ... cause' the BIG-BLOCK-BUICK was shaking his vehicle tremendously!!! LMATFO!!! OH-YEAH; a small 3200-rpm BURNOUT before I parked!
Shifting a Megashifter 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Project
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV I thought we'd demonstrate how the B&M Megashifter works in regular and ratchet shifting modes. We used our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am to demonstrate just how well it functions. This is basically the same way that most ratchet type shifters operate. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

Tyrone's 12-compression PONTIAC 428 MONSTER! The cam is DEVASTATING!!! I love the sound of his Pontiac's motor ... STRONG & SOLID ROLLER-CAM-MOTOR! This Pontiac nearly RUPTURED MY EAR DRUMS!!! I made a bit of an entrance approaching Tyrone's Shop; 3500-RPM In DRIVE from a dead stop! The Buick POWER-DRIFTED all the way up the block to Tyrone's Shop! Tyrone liked the way my BIG-BLOCK-BUICK sounds. My tire marks should remain for at least 3-weeks! Tyrone Taylor is a really good guy to have as a friend. AND he's great with MUSCLE CARS! LOL UPDATES on Tyrone's Pontiac-Torque-Monsters SOON.
