    I got the Demon carb cback on the Buick:

    It's fully tuned. Solid 11.3 AFR with the six screamin at redline.

    Time to put the intercooler on it and crank the boost up.
    I'm HAPPY.

    I'd say it's time for numbers.

    Man look at all the realestate under the hood still! I'm going to fill some of that space with some alky injection or something.

    I am a fan of anything turbocharged. My Older faves are these Buick GN, GNX, T-types and 89 Indy TA.

    Nice looking car bub.

    Excellant IC. I would have suggested an SRT4 IC for a cheap upgrade.

    Thanks. Eventually I'll drop some coin and buy a 3"in/out IC. But the FREE one works great for now.

    The engine in my car now has a mysterious dead cylinder, so it's getting pulled and will be rebuilt and I'll run this block with my setup on it in the meantime.
