Complete Line Of 455 Buick Cams added to site

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

We have added our entire line of Buick Cams to the site, both in hydraulics as well as solids. One of our flat tappet cams was # 1 Qualifier at the Norwalk Buick day both in 2009, and 2010. Nearly half the field both years had custom cams from us. Put our hard work to use in your Buick. Complete Listing here. These cams work great with Iron heads, Edelbrock heads both stock and ported as well as TA’s stage 2 heads. In addition, custom cam orders are encouraged.  Also available through Finishline Motorsports. We do cams for v6’s, nailheads and 350’s too!

Comp Cams Roller Cams added for Big Block Mopar

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

Comp Cams Roller CamsEven though we have had our own brand of custom camshafts for years,  we just added the full line of Comp Cams roller cams for big block Mopar applications to our site with special pricing.  We have had great success with our cams over time, including fast street cars, as well as record holding cars, but we also realize there are those who don’t have any interest in a custom cam, or just want to keep it simple. Well, for you guys we have added the Comp shelf Rollers. We will soon be adding the rest of the Comp line to the site for those of you interested in them. Comp Cams Roller Camshafts.

We have special pricing on these cams, as well as discounts on Comp Cams lifters when purchased at the same time.

Bruce Wilson’s Jaguick ( Buick Powered Jaguar!)

Monday, July 12th, 2010

We always like to see something a little different. Bruce Wilson’s Buick 455 Powered Jaguar is definitely different and exceptionally well done. The Jag was rescued out of Smitty’s Junkyard in Pasadena, MD. The body and interior look pretty much as you see here, surprising with the 200,000+ miles.  Someone had gutted the driveline and left the shell.  The car still has the original leather seats, real wood dash and power windows. Now that’s different for a 9 second racecar!  When Bruce picked it up, they put it on the trailer with a forklift and gave him a weary “good luck”.

The body was shipped of to Clark’s Racing Chassis, to get the cage and Ladder bar rear suspension  put in it.  The front suspension is stock Jag, with custom drag shocks fitted by Bruce.  Peters Sheetmetal fabrication handled the hood mods, and Dave Wilson at Southern Automatics handled the transmission.

Tom and Bubb at Burtonsville Performance Machine were put in charge of machining and assembly. The Engine is a basic 464 CID combination, with a stock crank, 4.350 Bore CP flat top pistons, and TA Performance Stage 1 heads that have been fully ported. The Cam is a custom flat tappet from Scott Brown @ Competition Components.  A Dominator is perched atop a KB Wildcat intake (Now the SPX)  and sealed to the custom hood.

The Jag really hauls the mail, running a best of 9.71@ 137 best with a 1.32 sixty foot time.  Not bad for a 3300lb car running a 3.50 gear. No, we aren’t kidding!  Usually though, Bruce takes some timing out and short shifts to run 10.00 Index races. This past weekend, Bruce was runner up in the naturally aspirated shootout series in Maple Grove, where he is currently the Points Leader.  Congrats Bruce!
