TAPerformance is the front runners on that...ranging from 4-7k They are bringing some cubic inches unheard of before to the sport.

Lord, make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. Grant me victory over my foes and those that wish to do harm to me and mine. Let not my last thought be “If only I had my gun”; and Lord if today is truly the day that You call me home, let me die in a pile of brass.

I tried to do the multiple cars thing, and I learned quickly that you have to be rich to do that. My 64 can be a slow cruiser forever, that's fine, but I will only have one fast car from now on, it just makes more sense.

I'm definately going to keep that in mind!!
I have a good idea every now and then

The 64 with that 5.3 in it would be a whale of a good time.

Yeah, that's them. Only 4-7k? That's not bad. My aluminum block was $4500 new. Their heads are pretty expensive though, aren't they? I haven't kept up with Buick stuff for more than 10 years, since when I had my 66 Skylark that I put a 455 into.

I had it in there once already, but felt like doing this 77 more at the time. I don't regret that at all, the disco Nova is a fun car!

I also got to thinking today that my 64 would actually be ideal for what I'm wanting to do right now (8.5), but I've already decided to spare it from a life of drag strip beatings. The 64 with a 496 and a couple stages of spray would hang in 8.5 class I think.

I mean you can run up to a stage 4 head...which isnt really needed. I heard that they are working on a stage 5 but I have no facts to prove that.

Between 1900-4500 for mild to sex.

You weren't planning on having me do engine work were you? I have very, very good people for that, but I don't actually do any engine building in my shop.
