Thanks it is consistent. Like most I just wish it was consistently quicker/faster ;D.

The Supercat is going in to our shop tomorrow for some maintenance.
We are pulling the trans to freshen up at JW's . We have the new converter and we will add that to the mix.. We are ordering new Hoosiers on Monday and will mount them on wheels 1" wider than the ones on there now. I also want to check the balance on the front wheels.  We are adding an RPM data logger to the car also next week. I need to build a tin box to put the computer and small battery in so the Mag stops playing havoc with the signals........
We are heading to Bowling Green next month for a National Buick race so we need to spiff up the Cat a bit

Finally an update........
This engine mock up is finally in the works.
The heads on the engine are similar to the heads on the right in the second picture.
The head on the left is one of our new heads that our friend Ken and I have been designing for a few years.
They are done and so are the Jesel custom rockers.
I'll post more updates soon.

All I can say is impressive work I always wanted to build my own set of heads (even though I run a SBC)! I ended up buying a used set of AJPE billets to get what I wanted to build. I'm just not competent enough with the mill!

Paul we did most of the running around on the design work.
We digitally merged all our ideas and most of the wants into a final program.
Then a shop in Texas ran the program and now we have some nice heads. It was easy......Not...
We do like the final result though.

These heads are for the Buick 455 style blocks. One of our blocks will be 477 cu.in and the other is around 600 cu. In.
