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 wanted to say hello Im a new member from Reading, PA. I just bought a sweet mint shape Silver 2003 Buick Regal GS for $1800 with aftermarket speed dents in it and light weight rusted blownout factory exhaust and the Engines just started to get broken in with 130K on it. All jokes aside it may not be the nicest one out there but I'm no stranger to the 3.8L Supercharged engines and have owned a 2002 Grand Prix GTP that I was hit by a drunk driver in and also a 2005 Impala SS that I had for a while before selling to my girlfriends mom who owned a 63 Corvette Stingray when it was new back in her time. 

     Anyway so as previously stated I've owned two of the L67 engine cars and always wanted the Regal GS as a daily driver and found one for the right affordable price. I could of spent a little more and got something a little nicer but I'm more into building and driving hotrods from the 50's anyway but needed a newer car for a little over a hour commute to work and back everyday and with owning my own garage that I use to do metal work on the side in I'm not afraid to tear into the Regal GS and fix it. I plan on trying to keep up with the forum and share pictures of my progress on bringing my car back to a nicer shape of its self that it once was.

Thank you Alan. Id also like to add that I dont care for online forums drama, shit talkers, pretenders, trolls, or any b.s. because I dont have time for that or trying to make myself look good online like I see on other forums "H.A.M.B. ....nuff said" because im to busy fixing real problems in my garage or out on the road crusin' somewhere. So the limited amount of time I have to be on the computer looking for problem solving info or help I dont need to or care to see or read drama or negative comments. Also Im better with a Welder and Toolbox then a computer or grammar/spelling so you'll have to excuse me on that end.

Check the section called "Flagship Cars." Some guys start a thread there to post pics and document their build. Generally it is not a section for discussion and questions. Other guys will document their build in the "Almost Anything Goes" section. More discussion there.

Thanks again for the help on the Blog question. I believe Ill start my blog in the "Almost Anything Goes" section because sadly my car looks more like its been beaten then on the nice Flagship end of the spectrum.
