@  dezldave961 : (17 April 2021 - 02:04 PM)

Just keeping the candle lit, as I mentioned on my only remaining local ClubGP chapter of the 3-4 I was very active on in my 20's

@  Marchi1 : (15 April 2021 - 07:00 PM)

nope...just us old timers

@  WildGS : (15 April 2021 - 03:56 AM)

are people still here?

@  dezldave961 : (12 April 2021 - 09:46 PM)

Hey, chuggin' along. Just finished a big overhaul on my turbo build after 12yrs.

@  Nateteo : (12 April 2021 - 05:56 PM)

literally, the last time I logged in was 3 years ago hows everybody doing

@  dezldave961 : (12 April 2021 - 04:43 PM)

Ya, they do open bracket at GS Nationals. I may go if I'm free, just to attend, even if there's no cage, yet.

@  Marchi1 : (12 April 2021 - 01:32 PM)

I am taking the SC car.I am sure it is a big event as it is in Bowling Green, KY so yeah will need to be fully copliant, but I think there is a bracket class. God I hope so

@  dezldave961 : (08 April 2021 - 01:50 PM)

*S&W Racecars cage for 95-99 Monte... I'd actually fit the xTSM class, aside from not being a RWD, if I swapped the Air-Air I/C back in. Probably wouldn't be competitive just yet, but I'd like to see them squirm.

@  dezldave961 : (08 April 2021 - 01:48 PM)

My only hesitation is that it's a big "gate-keeper" club, from my year of monitoring their forum. I might show up for fun to T&T in an open class, if I have a cage by then (S&S 90's W-body one when I get time).

@  dezldave961 : (07 April 2021 - 08:12 PM)

Oh, is the TurboBuick thing om, again? That's what I initially started my build overhaul for last year. Might be able to get out there, finally.

@  Marchi1 : (07 April 2021 - 02:53 PM)

Dave there is a Buick only event in May in Bowling Green...

@  dezldave961 : (04 April 2021 - 02:51 PM)

For launching in street trim with a s/c, you can pre-load just a bit at staging, then roll from that point to full throttle over ~1-2sec as traction permits. The tires will screech some at a track, but a 1.9-2.1 is the good typical range for most folks, with occasional freaks getting 1.8-1.9 success (my best on 2nd-hand Nitto 555R's was maybe mid-1.9's with my GenV/2.7/XP/3.29 setup at Norwalk).

@  dezldave961 : (03 April 2021 - 06:11 PM)

You should be able to modulate the throttle a bit better to get at least a 2.0 with practice. The Mustang is probably about all that can get, they're not too impressive without work.

@  ejguillot : (02 April 2021 - 01:12 PM)

I wasn't the only one having problems launching, There was a 2015 Mustang 5.0 on drag radials whose best time was a 12.9 after 3 tries or so.

@  ejguillot : (02 April 2021 - 01:09 PM)

Good news was nothing broke, and no KR on a 2.8" pulley. Will be revising timing tables too.

@  ejguillot : (02 April 2021 - 01:08 PM)

The first runs were so so. 13.5@104, couldn't launch for shit! 2.4 60' was the best I got. Then I look things over and realize my front shocks are all worn out. Ordered some KYB's from Rockauto on sale ($70 shipped), will be installing those and see what I can do next time.

@  dezldave961 : (01 April 2021 - 11:38 AM)

Cool. I may try BMP eventually, based on prep shown in Cleetus videos. Might live in the area again soon, too.

@  Marchi1 : (25 March 2021 - 03:11 PM)

The silver car will be hitting the track in May...Should see better numbers than the last pass 6 years ago

@  Marchi1 : (25 March 2021 - 03:11 PM)

Waiting for numbers.....

@  ejguillot : (25 March 2021 - 01:47 PM)

Hi all, finally taking my project GS to Bradenton Motorsports Park for it's maiden 1/4 mile run.

Posted on the original but since we are switching i figured id start us off.

Today I installed my new 42# injectors and my zzp pcm. Very impressed. My kr went from 6.1ish down to 2.7ish. Multiple runs to double check on both numbers before and after so i trust em. :)

Oh of course !
Probably won't be until Monday morning - I have a few thinks to work out like the IC routing.
I used a camaro belt tensior for 2 reasons, it will let me use my 97-98 style high output alt and it uses 2 coolant elbows vs 1. The 97-98 regal tensioner uses 1 elbow and the other one is actually part of the tensior assembly. So if it broke off it could take out the timing cover as well
So using the part skewed my belt size quite a bit. Stock belt shows 915-918. Well I had to go all the way up to a 925 - and I'm using a tiny pulley on my alt. So probably a 930 belt is needed of reg sized alt pulley is used.

Now 2nd part. My heater core hard lines coming out of the IC are now blocked by the new camaro bracket. The one line sits flush against it. So I had to cut it way back and use some 90* elbows.
I'll re-route the new lines later when I get time.

well I feel stupid but I have fuel to the engine bay now... I think the hard line was clogged and the new gas ate through the clog. White car should be running soon if I can figure out the trick to pop the cv tulip off the output shaft on the trans going into the LS. Put new magnets and DIY shift kit in the trans and new filter and did some cleaning of it and replaced the pan that was bent. Sold the spare l36 I had around so I can free up a bit more room and revive a gpgt for a buddy.

No worries.  Bought a 99 Intrigue with an L36 for a few bucks.  Going to swap over my IC and cam and everything to it.  Should work out ok.

What I mean is that I'm pulling that motor and scrapping the Intrigue, but using the block with most of my stuff and putting it back in the Regal.
