For the first of many engine builds at Street Muscle Action, we couldn't just settle for something ordinary. No, this is a new century re-imagining of Buick's turbocharged V6. This time around we're talking about a 76 millimeter turbo, 42 extra cubic inches and total output of over 700 horsepower. So far we have the first three video installments in a series chronicling the entire buildup. Up next we will bolt on the turbo and get it up on the dyno, so check back regularly for more!
The first video in the buildup (above) is all about building the foundation. We're preparing the block to be able to withstand 700 horsepower and installing the crankshaft.
