Calling all Buick powered Jeeps!

My name is Sean and I have been passionate about building Buick 350s for quite a while now.... I am beginning to compile my mountains of information to write a book about Buick small blocks (225,231,215,300,340, and 350). In this book there will be a section for "readers rides" so to speak so this is your chance to get in on this fun! Please note, if anyone knows someone with a smaller jeep that is Buick powered, send them my way!

This will be the run down so copy and paste this into an e-mail, fill in your details and pics and send it to me at sean-gaskin@hotmail.com:

-Owners name and location
-Model, year of vehicle and engine size
-Total miles
-Miles on engine and year if different
-Transmission and stall speed if auto and not stock
-Rear end gear ratio
-Brand and size of rear tires
-Type of driving (mudding, trails ect)

Information about your engine:

-Rebuilt or not
-Static compression ratio (state whether estimated or measured)
-Carburetor (If you know the jetting let me know)
-Ignition (also timing specs)
-Intake manifold
-Cylinder heads (if ported and you have flow numbers add them, if valves are oversized state sizes)
-Pistons and overbore size (cast, hyper or forged)
-Connecting rod
-Camshaft (specs and how it is degreed)
-Exhaust (headers or not as well as pipe diameters)
-Any oiling modifications
-Any power adders
-Engine builder

Please give as much detail about each of the above as possible and if your engine components are stock just list stock beside the item. If unknown just leave it blank.

A stock, worn out and tired 2bbl Buick 350 powered Jeep will beat a healthy Edelbrock 4BBL AMC 360 powered Jeep in a race...There's a little something to those motors
