    my buddy has a stage 2 block...twin turbo....runs low- mid 8's....single turbo car he's running 9.0's. all about fuel management ....I think his latest DFI is a Felpro... He's experimenting now with a LS1 twin turbo.....he went through all his Busch Series motors...( the guy bought 10 of them ) back in the day....
    I’d rather live with a good question than a bad answer.

    So what would benefit of one of those be in a boat? Saves room?

    It sure does look small between the fenders when it's a single turbo app....running twins tho...gets lost with all that piping / plumbing......in a boat..... Hmmm, I respect anything that rolls or goes....but, when I watch him run....seems like he's sitting at the start line for an hour spooling that bitch up before he launchs!!!!

    Built and machined quite a few Buick v6's over the years... production and Stage, on and off center, and about every other combination of variations they concocted during the short period they were really pushing these things. Great little motors... and with some of the aftermarket goodies (like the block girdle) you can really push a production block into some decent power. I'd say one of my favorite over achiever engines.

    GN: Well... Built correctly, I would put my money on one of these in and endurance race no problem (Stg II). Perhaps even hold up in a GN race. Perhaps not be the biggest power maker... but I bet it would finish... which is really half the battle anyways.

    After about two seasons there splitting the number 2 main,starting at the bolt hole and going down to the cam.Also changing some of the balance percents seems to add life to the block.

    No doubt. The things are deep in endurance R&D. You don't dish out 500 miles of turbo'd methanol HP without having your act together.

    I built a StgII years ago that powered the worlds fastest production car (John Raines' Firebird). Had one of the very first MoTec EFI units and a single turbo from one of Scott Breyton's Indy cars and made over 1Khp.
    Probably the most knowledgable guy out ther on the Buic V6 is Ken Duttweiler in Saticoy CA. He ran ProStock with TTV6's for a few years.

    This is on Duttweiler's dyno:

    Duttweiler knows his Buicks, but Buddy Ingersol was the king of the turbo Buick V6 drag cars. Hands down. He had this thing running 7.20 at 200 in 1986.


    The NHRA Pro Stock guys were scared to death of that thing. The IHRA let him run PS for a short time. But he whipped Rickie Smiths ass pretty bad in a final and that was the beginning of the end for him in IHRA PS. He ran some more Modified Production races until Buick pulled his plug and that ended that.
