    An easy 1000+hp combo , the big valve 351C heads flowed huge air.
    Are you still going turbos ? .

I had planned on making a long rod clevor with a pair of turbo's on it.

    Yup. The 4.2 will be turbocharged.

    Very cool .. Any pics ? .. if you have them, throw them up .
    When I bought my first SC in I think it was 91 I wanted to turbo it , but had other projects , still would like to do one though , I have a warmed over Buick GN V6 here that may come available in the near future , would be a great swap into an SC chassis .. but at the moment the teal car and the 87 TB V8 twin turbo take priority .

    I started a thread a couple of weeks back to document my progress. http://www.sccoa.com/forums/showthre...d-4-2-Projects Lots of pics in there.

    Nice, I of course vote for turbo.. actually two.. even better, two factory GN units , they will spool reasonably well and make upwards of 700hp on a well built engine if that is your target range for power.
    Kenny Duttweiler of monster 7 second GN V6 fame from the 80s and on built a 3.8 for a test engine and used two factory turbos , it made over 700hp on the engine dyno .

    A few more pics of the progress , dash was a wiring nightmare .. a dashstrophy so to speak .. it was heavily "modded" from an alarm/remote starter install before I got the car , had to repair or replace a lot of wires , thankfully I have a spare 5L Thunderbird [ thanks to Tom ] in the driveway to pillage parts from including pulling the dash for wires and also to figure out how to get the teal car dash back together properly [ hopefully ].
    I changed my mind on all black interior, going with original grey panals with black inserts , seats will be black leather , dash will also be original grey but with black pcs replaced in spots like the right side air vent , the trim strip above the glove compartment and the large cowl above the instrument cluster .

    Thanks Denis ,the engine bay is all painted now the same as the exterior, every time I do something to make it look better , I find something else that looks crappy in comparison so then feel the " need " to do that as well .. gotta stop somewhere, its not supposed to be a garage queen .
    Have to make a decision on rims soon , I have a set of Enkie 5 star style but they are in silver, I would rather have black rims on it , so may paint them or look for another aftermarket set , might be good to go up to 17s at the same time for upgrading the brakes down the road.
    I will try to get some dash and engine bay pics up .

    I've seen some amazing rims in black chrome. Might look really sharp on your ride with the teal. More pics would be great.

    Ya, black chrome does look good but I think I will keep with the exterior trim black satin/semi gloss look .
    Here is another pic, not that good, the lighting in the garage is not friendly to take pics.
    Still have to clean all the rust proofing/protective oil that is on the engine , cradle is all dusty as well , but I got to say , if more people looked after their cars with proper rust proofing etc like the guy who had this car before me, there would be a lot more MN12's on the road today .

    Thanks.
    No , no progress for a while, some things have gotten in the way ,also have been working on my house, shingling the house and garages roofs , 4500sq ft of roof so a big job , and has to get done before it gets too cold to let them settle.
    I need to find some moon roof drain tube replacement material first as well so I can install them before the dash , otherwise installing the tubes at a later date would be a nightmare .
    Still hoping to get the car at least to the point it can be driven before the snow comes.. still don't know if the engine is ok yet either , but again , if its not , something much better will go into it .

    Looking good. I love the sheen!

    I had one heck of a time rebuilding my moon roof. I had to combine several moon roofs and at the time the gasket was hard to find.

    Thank you .
    Good you mentioned the issues , I think I have 3 or 4 roof glasses with their carriers but should bench test them to see if they are working properly and have good seals .
