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!
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 this Buick 455 Stage-1
Skylark's TA PERFORMANCE "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
This is a very similar cam to that I have in my '87 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal
(currently at the Dyno
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!!!

1972 Buick Skylark
1972 Buick Skylark with a Hi-Compression Buick 350-4
I've had this car since October 8th 2010, I'm a senior in High School and
it is my first car, my dad payed for half of it and I payed for the other
half. I pay for the performance goodies that go into it and the occasional
parts that break too. I love driving this old monster even though premium
gas prices are outrageous but the rumble and roar of that massive V8 are
well worth it. I take pride in this car and my dad and I do most of the
work on it ourselves, it's somewhat of a father-son project. We've done
nothing but make this car a heck of a lot better than it was when we got
it. In the great words of GS Club of America, going fast with class, that's
what these Buicks do.
Stock HP: 175hp (for 1972 Buick 350-4 8.5:1 compression)
Rear-wheel HP: 226hp @ 4326 RPM (should be a little higher with the Hyfire
and Mallory coil)
Rear-wheel Tourqe: 307.8 lb-ft @ 3372 RPM (should also be a little higher)
Net HP: approx. 260hp
Compression: 9.5:1 (not sure, but definitely higher than stock because
without prem fuel I get spark knock with the correct fuel to air mixture)
Rear-end gears: 2.73:1 Open Differential (plan on getting a Limited Slip
Transmission: turbohydramatic 350 (with
a shift kit for fun :D)
2008 Buick LaCrosse Super (5.3L V8) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the 2008 Buick LaCrosse Super.
Original MSRP pricing for the Super was around $32,000-$33,000
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth educational videos of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!
