    Hi I am New !

    I recently bought a 1972 Buick Le Sabre Convertible Custom, 350 2 bbl, with 78,000 miles. Needs some TLC but a blast to drive. Will eventually be replacing the top. Hoping to be able to do it myself.

    welcome.

    4 barrel intakes for the Buick 350 can be found fairly commonly in a junk yard ( for an engine that's been out of production since 1981 ) and TA Performance has new aluminum ones.

    Sean Gaskin up in Edmonton has experience with turboing the 350.

    of course, there's always the ever popular 455 swap.

    I'm also from Montreal and joined recently as well. I had a '73 Centurion 2dr. hardtop and that car flew. Right now Ièm trying to get a 1968 Wildcat ready to pass Quebec out of province inspection as I purchased the car in Alberta. Lots of knowledgable folks here!

    Hi The Wildcat comes with a 430 cu.in. I still haven't passed inspection because the horn was stuck on while driving and I'm waiting for a new steering wheel to arrive.
    I'm hoping Montreal's famous graft and corruption will help get the car passed with a cracked manifold and worn out steering box. Have fun with your Lesabre, they go like hell.
    I'm in N.D.G., maybe we'll run into each other.
