@  Fast86GN : (04 March 2019 - 07:05 PM)

I don't think it would that loud probably depends on the mufflers used?

I've got a '98 Buick Regal GS that I inherited from my brother. It has some mods that I've done, but I'm wondering what to do next.

 

So far:

3.4" ZZP modular pulley

4" JMB fender well intake

ZZP downpipe

ZZP 1.0 PCM

PRJ fuel pump relay harness

A/C delete

ZZP aluminum radiator

ZZP aluminum trans pan (also changed to Dex 6 fluid and new filter)

 

 

I also have a set of 105# valve springs a set of 1.9 rockers from ZZP that I haven't installed yet.

 

I am looking at intercooling or getting a set of the eBay SpeedDaddy headers next. The headers are fairly inexpensive, but I'm worried that it will be really loud. The intercooler is more expensive, and I worry about hood clearance. What would be the next good mod to do for the car?

 

I've been out of the loop as far as 3800/L67 for quite a while...but getting back into it as I like the car a lot. I'm mostly into the old turbo Mopar stuff.

Headers

E-85 if available

 

Cam instead of Rockers

 

Any or all of these you need to update your tune.

Have you read the "Newbie Guide"?  IIRC, colder plugs (Autolite 105's) comes to mind with your list of mods. Do a search and maybe some reading so it doesn't blow up, lol.

I don't believe so, but may have a long time ago. Like I said, I've been out of the loop. The car has had all the mods listed for close to 10 years though, and it's always been fine on 91 octane pump gas so I don't think it's about to "blow up".

 

I can finally get E85 locally now, that would be great if I could get a tune. Sounds like HPTuners would be required?

 

Also, how are you guys monitoring knock these days? I have an Aeroforce dual scan gauge setup for my Caliber SRT-4. Would that allow me to see real-time KR?

I use the Aeroforce gauge to watch for knock and boost, A/F etc.

I too use the Aeroforce gauges. Not sure if the one that works in your Caliber will work in your GS. Check the Aeroforce website for part numbers vs. application.

Yup, it won't work. The Caliber uses the "CNC" series while the Regal needs the "PT" series.
