Stage2 intake manifold. Help!
Hi evey one.
I'm new with this Buick v6 turbo, I'm use to the popular chevy small block. And need a Lil help. I picked up a 1980 monte carlo turbo a while ago. And started to rebuild the engine. I picked up a stage 2 intake manifold, and for my supprice it don't fit. So what can I do to need to use this manifold?

Purchase a Stage II engine block, which was not a "street" item at all.

See the tech info and photo guides elsewhere on this site. There are few parts at all that are the same between the OEM and Stage II blocks. Stage II blocks were used in Indy racing, Busch Cup racing, IMSA, and drag racing. The ports are huge compared with OEM blocks found in cars. Although they are much stronger, have much thicker walls and more head bolts to keep it together, no hard parts cross over. :nono:

Apples and kumquats. Two totally different animals. Related, but not the same.
