Pontiac Power!We love seeing full-blooded Pontiac-powered Pontiacs, and Anthony Truzzolino's '81 Grand Prix didn't disappoint. Anthony and crew chief/buddy Robert Uremovich drove it the 94 miles from Cape Coral, Florida, just to attend MSD True Street. It's run a best of 11.20/118 on motor, but was a tad off pace with a 12.54 average on this day. With such nice launches, we suspect problems on the top end. Anthony is a line mechanic at Roger Dean Chevrolet in Cape Coral, and built his 474-inch 455 with iron '69 400 heads, an Edelbrock Victor intake, a Holley 950 HP carb, and a solid flat-tappet Xtreme Energy cam from COMP. Driveline mods consist of a manual-valve Turbo 400, an ATI 4,200-stall converter, and Southside bars. Launching on the footbrake, the Grand Prix has put down a best 60-foot time of 1.56. For ignition, Anthony just got a new MSD Digital 6 box. "It's freaking awesome," he says. "It starts up better, it idles better, and it has crisper throttle response."
