Going to move towards RWD chassis soon, so it's more fun to use. Z7 kit needs gone, MP112/L26 chillin', 2 GenV's on ice, and T67 currently on my L32. Cheaper than LSx playtime yo tinker with this.

@  dezldave961 : (06 August 2021 - 11:40 PM)

I'll gladly do mega builds with my stash! Getting stationed at a new spot next year, and might need projects.

@  kevandkaye : (05 August 2021 - 10:52 PM)

How cool would it be for everyone here who has leftover parts, send them ALL to one person for a superbuild? Sorry, peeked in and got chatty!

@  kevandkaye : (05 August 2021 - 10:50 PM)

Sure am missing the days when Buicks were built by Buick.

@  kevandkaye : (05 August 2021 - 10:50 PM)

Paul's a mod?!?! I take you more for a resto......

@  ejguillot : (03 August 2021 - 10:28 PM)

Well, my project Buick is dead. Piston smacked a valve, piston/block/head is trashed. That killed my enthusiasm. Will be posting a parts for sale list real soon.

@  Marchi1 : (22 July 2021 - 05:30 PM)

Its even worse... he has been a memeber for 13 years and has 2 active posts.....

@  dezldave961 : (21 July 2021 - 11:38 PM)

Some people don't know how the internet works, and think deleting after posting somehow works like an Etch-A-Sketch. (You made 2 posts 13yrs ago about fixing an ignition switch, which I'd never know if you didn't ask about deleting... Look up Streisand Effect.)

@  Marchi1 : (21 July 2021 - 01:53 AM)

and just quit using it. there is very little update and while I can delete it why would you?

@  Marchi1 : (21 July 2021 - 01:52 AM)

that hurst I have been here in less than months

@  esqueue : (15 July 2021 - 05:50 PM)

A moderator hasn't been here for months

@  esqueue : (15 July 2021 - 05:48 PM)

How do I get my account deleted?

SELLING 99GS SEE FORUM, THANK YOU

@  dezldave961 : (16 June 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Good deal. I'll be resolving some issues when I get back from a work trip, as well.

@  ejguillot : (14 June 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Also rechecked the flexplate and rocker arm bolts, all were torqued to spec.

@  ejguillot : (14 June 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Update on the tap/knock noise: resolved most of it by resealing my exhaust. Front header to crossover pipe leak - noise at 1/2 engine RPM.

@  ejguillot : (04 June 2021 - 07:15 PM)

I'll recheck those, thanks for the heads up.

@  dezldave961 : (03 June 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Also, check that the rockers are all torqued, still. Re-usable bolts like to be around 25 or so, but settling in from running may back one out that was torqued while partially under load on a cam lobe.

@  dezldave961 : (03 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Did you do anything with the flexplate? Those 3 bolts tend to come loose and rattle over time, if not torqued with loctite.

@  ejguillot : (03 June 2021 - 04:46 PM)

doing OK. Tune's all fixed, but hearing a tap/knock noise from my engine that is no longer fading with higher RPM. Not good.

Just bought my son a 2003 regal gs.  I was extremely lucky to find a 59,000 mile car, everything works.  All his friends wanted Mustangs and Camaros.  What mods would you all suggest.  Looking for fairly inexpensive and easy installation.  Thanks in advance.

http://www.regalgs.o...=+newbie +guide

 

Weldome to the site! The newbie guide is a great place to start. The search function up toward the top is a great feature too. So start with the newbie guide (long but thorough topic), use the search function to find threads about specific topics and learn more, then if you still have questions feel free to start a topic. Lots of people on here know these cars very thoroughly. As you'll see in the newbie guide, learn what KR is and learn how to fight it. KR kills power and realiability. There is no reason a properly done 3.8L can't build good power and run 300k if you spend time and plan your mods properly. And your son should be happy to know that most of his friends who end up with mustangs and camaros won't even be able to keep up with his stock GS and he'll have lower insurance! 

 

 

 

 

 

I just joined. I bought my first regal gs a couple days ago. My name is Tyler and i am from Waseca MN.  :)

 

 

Welcome to the site Tyler! I hope that you'll enjoy your Regal as much as I have mine. They are great cars! Any plans to mod or just enjoy?

Well i bought it with 145000 miles on it . it has some issues that need mending first . like the boost guage shows no psi. I checked the vac line to the map it seemed ok . everything else on the instrament cluster works lol except for the turn signal switch. I  thought it was just a bad bulb when i got her . Thanks every one for the welcome and yes i sure will mod i cant wait :)

Maintenance before mods is a good idea. The most common problem causing 0 boost to be read is underneath the supercharger snout there is a vacuum T that tends to break or come loose.
