This block girdle was designed with one thing in mind, strength. Made from 3/4" thick 1018 billet steel plate, flame cut out for rigidity, blanchard ground to ensure flatness then CNC machined to exact tolerance.
This girdle is designed, manufactured, sold and tested in house, by true Turbo Buick enthusiasts.
This girdle was specifically designed to allow the back yard mechanic to be able to install it, not just the professional engine builder.
This is a girdle installed on Jason Cramer's block, the engineer that designed it. He and his dad, Tom have built many girdled motors since this one.. This engine produces over to 700 hp and propels Jason's GN down the quarter mile in 9.77 @ 139 This is in a full weight, t-top car with all of the accessories and A/C at 3620 lbs. We have customers cars with stock blocks running 8.90s at over 156mph reliably.
The girdle comes with all of the mounting and installation hardware required. We use ARP® and grade 8 fasteners. It is not wise to cut corners with this critical piece. Beware of china made imitations.
