just wait till I get the kinks worked outa my SI and SII hybrid then you can have an L67 top end on your buick short block....so far it looks like the hardest part is drilling two holes on either side of the cam tunnel for the SII cam thrustplate...

we will be using the SC heads with the NA lwr intake (sheet alum upper) to run 12 injectors for when the rear 3800 gets Turbocharged/ait to Freon Intercooled

And make sure you put that in a kit for everyone else.

No problem!
come and get your horsepower!
I am seriously thinking of selling kits that include the intake spacers, custom length pushrods and all the templates needed to put the MUCH better top end/cam of a SII on the SI buick block (we got taller decks=longer rods=shorter compression height pistons and ability to (hopefully) drop in 4.3L vortec V6 crank 3.48 inch stroke not to mention forged 4.3L cranks in custom strokes (3.75+!!!) are much cheaper than a billet SII crank....)
a set of custom rods with the smaller Honduh rod journal size and you could build a stroked 3800 that couls reliably handle 700Hp+

cant let the SII guys have all the records eh?

Being 18 myself I can tell ya insurance isn't cheap with my 98 SSEi. I think once the insurance company hears "SuperChargered" & 18 years old they tack another digit onto what they were going to charge me.

I happen to be older than 18, but when I insured a 92 Prelude SI they took notice. When I insured the 95 SSEi they lowered my insurance by 400 compared to the Honda.

And my record is squeaky clean....What can I say..they keep letting me go.

When i turned 21, it went in half.... I pay under $600 for Comprehensive with a large deductable, but free glass replacement. (those small door windows scare me in price, and i'm amazed i haven't taken out a windshield in 2 years) Actually i'd like to get a new windshield...
