This swap will always be one of our favorites. This Buick has been in our customers family since it was driven off the lot. The goal of this project was to make it as reliable as possible so it can continue to be passed down generation to generation as well as provide a memory for a lost family member.
We completed an “almost” frame off restoration by updating the entire suspension and steering system as well as the engine and transmission.
You may have noticed that very custom intake on this project. If you look hard enough, you will notice that it is using a dual plane EFI manifold. In order to use the factory air cleaner assembly, we decided to keep the carb style intake. However, to this day, the only off-the-shelf LS EFI carburetor flange style intake manifold is a single plane. While it may work great in a drag car, this project is far from it. So, we created our own dual plane EFI intake manifold. As far as we know, its the only one in existence.
