The Story of this car..
Brought out storage,in year 2000

3 total rebilds all i payed for,Dynoed an to the track same thing, 1/2 track garnade First Run !!
4th new motor bought an payed for, i pull car out KDK
spend over $30,000 in cash an parts totaling over 3 years
I call Cal Hartline,He recommeds Lamotta performance
The new motor from KDK goes striaght on the Dyno an BOOM!! headgasket launches as all the times before
I asked Jake at Lamotta if he can fix it, an add GNX style dash an new Intercooler,6 months later motors done at Heartbeat racing engines,Even though Lamottoa dropped my motor to him for whatever reason i had to go pick it up.(that cost the tranny in my truck!)After Lamotta installs the motor an fires it,I called Jake an he said i quote "Its fine, ready to go"..I pick it up, Its belowing white smoke out the exshuast very 10 minutes,water temps high, oil pressuers All over the place!!!,,the dash speedo don't work, (the whole reason i had the GNX dash kit Installed!!) an the grill ,Lamotta broke the headerpanel flap so my Grill dangles in place,had to buy whole new front headlight pannel,won't mention them storing my car under a car on lift that leaked fuild
$13,000 in total parts an labor back to square one
Piston pin was riding up an down the #4 cylinder wall
Car stays in My Garage..

Today July 27th 2010 the cars at ProFab in Tampa having Matt inspected the suspenion along with the brakes,Possiably adding a 6 point roll cage...8^)
Moral to this build,Try your Hardest to Have one All-in-One shop work on your car,Or you'll get the Third person run around,(example), Oh i'll take your car an your money,but its the machist fault or part builders fault why nothing works,pay us, blame them...
First time you here that....Run!!!
Get all work in Writing,You might need it later
87 Turbo Buick 11.42/121mph pass
June 26, 2009 - Baseline testing for the next upgrade. Funny part is Mustang before me forgets to close his hood. Not so funny as my tires cool down waiting for him to get his act together. That rattling noise after launch is a lesson learned on how much the tranny actually moves under load and how much clearance to maintain from rotating parts...oops.

Buick Grand National: New Transmission/Converter/Burnout
Hi, This is a 1986 Grand national with mods. This car has a 58mm turbo, Alcohol Injection, Bigger Intercooler, Injectors, Fuel Pump, Headers 7 Exhaust 7 a built transmission. The car Dynoed 383 RWHP.
I had the Grand National now a couple months and blew the transmission last week. The blown transmission couldn't handle our efforts. We had the trans professionally built with hi-performance parts including a nice 9" 3000rpm stall speed converter. This new tranny should be able to handle the beatings!!!
We drove the car over to a private road/parking lot and completed several launches/smokey burnouts. The new tranny seems proper and up to the tasks of a GN!! :)
GN vs. GT500
I ran a GT500, he wasnt talking to anyone, just acting like his GT500 was a Ford GT or something. He did a really weird burnout and I let him get the jump. I guess he liked his rims to much to get a stickier tire because all he did was spin. It wasnt even a race, his time ended up being 21.41 seconds in the quarter.
