LT1/LT4 Carburator Conversion 350 SBC
I was told this motor would not run on a carburetor. So I decided to prove
that thought wrong and even ran it on my Dyno to show the power it made.
This is the same motor that would be found in the Vette, only it made less
power and was fuel injected from the Factory.
To see some of our other projects or for more information check out our
Duramax Diesel Grand National CLONE
This is actually an Oldsmobile chasis that was converted into a Grand
National looking Buick. This car is powered by a 6.6 litre Duramax Diesel
engine. This car is sick, I do not own it unfortunately...
