@  Tobias05 : (06 March 2019 - 09:38 PM)

... i think they have a house brand muffler now? Used to be a magnaflow...

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

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

@  Tobias05 : (01 March 2019 - 03:31 PM)

ZZP 3IN SS Regal exhaust w/plog and DP too loud for a DD?

Don't know where on the east coast you are, but there's one for sale on craigslist in south Jersey...https://southjersey.craigslist.org/cto/d/browns-mills-98-buick-regal-gs/6779489044.html

@  Frank : (15 February 2019 - 03:42 PM)

Hello everyone! Its been a long time!. Looking to get back into the game. Anyone have a GS on the east coast they wish to part with?

@  ejguillot : (14 February 2019 - 09:08 PM)

Still have a Regal GS project that has taken way too long to build, and it's nowhere near done.

@  ejguillot : (14 February 2019 - 09:08 PM)

Same here.

So long story short Christine the GS tried to kill me. Got a new 07 Lacrosse. L26/4t65e non HD, think Lesabre. Ok this is my first trip into dbw setups. Little background I live at 6100 ft,everything is either all up hil or all downhill from me. So took the car on a quick errand to 4500 ft and back to 6100. Car saw very frequent 4 to 8.5+ knock. The only "mod" I've done is 180* tstat and OEM plugs. I looked to try and read the tune tonight it reads as a 2005 lacrosse but is corrupt and cant be opened. Car has 91k I'm debating if the trans is causing the issue. Going up a grade it will not kick down into 3rd and kr spikes to 8.5 to 8.75 if I unlock the converter manually it will finally kick down and kr settles to the 4 range. Mileage is 20ish hwy.

It being an 07 fuel filter is in tank and technically non serviceable
Computer is non tunable
Car has a 2 yr warranty and I know as soon as that is over is when the trans will shell lol.
I'm grasping for anything, any idea how to either kill it under warranty or prolong life and bring back mpg and power that 9* of kr destroys.
Gut the air box?
Port an upper manifold and lower?
Have a 2.5 in dp fabbed up?
Put in a shift kit?
Fluid and filter swap on the trans?

Any ideas or stories u have heard on the new cars would be appreciated. It wont be a bad car once the kinks get worked out. Its already the favorite go to car for gatherings.

Greg, I'm no expert by any means but why is the PCM not tuneable? Any codes in history? Do you what your fuel pressure is?
