Hi all. Decade is coming to a close... I'm feeling a little old!

@  M_Dogg : (05 December 2019 - 11:20 PM)

Cheers!

@  ejguillot : (02 December 2019 - 01:13 AM)

Hi there. Some of us are working to keep these cars alive and running. Glad you had a good 15 year run.

@  opera_bob : (30 November 2019 - 08:39 AM)

Every time I see an Old Buick I have major respect for it. I know what kind of torque these cars make.

@  opera_bob : (30 November 2019 - 08:38 AM)

I sold my 2002 GS back in 2017. She was falling apart all over the place. So I sold her and bought a 2017 Focus RS in 2017.

@  opera_bob : (30 November 2019 - 08:37 AM)

Hi Everybody.

@  ejguillot : (15 November 2019 - 08:19 PM)

Anybody get on here anymore?

@  ejguillot : (01 November 2019 - 02:23 AM)

It should be possible, you might want to get a surplus connector so you can hook the fan motor to a battery.

@  Greg2000GS : (01 November 2019 - 01:58 AM)

cooling fan suspect. Is there a way to test it by jumping connector?

@  Fast86GN : (31 October 2019 - 01:23 PM)

I'm here....

@  ejguillot : (27 October 2019 - 01:39 PM)

I expect some 12.40's in the cooler air.   Say in Oct at Noble, OK  Ford vs Buick shootout

 

And I did fix my post the race weight is 3290 without me. Should be able to shave another 100lbs off very soon

VERY nice times! Is that still supercharged?

 

For comparison, my tune/K&N filter only 2017 Taurus SHO went 12.72 at 108.19 in +600ft DA this past Friday. A L67 Regal going 12.5x is super impressive!

Damn, that's impressive. If I could get even within a second of that with my Regal, I would be ecstatic!

 

You gotta start recording these amazing runs next time you go to the dragstrip!

Going again here in a couple of weeks I have a grudge race against a 350 Vega wagon but don't let that scare ya it's a tame 350 probably less than 300hp. Young kid I think I can beat him. I think he is mid 8's at best in the 1/8.

My best 1/8 is 8.02 @ 87mph. Shaving the snout and dropping to a 2.7 and a little more weight reduction before then.

Funny you mention that... years ago (OK... decades..., it was 2004) I had a '93 40th Anniversary 6spd Vette. Bone stock it went 13.3 at 107mph. After running that at the drag strip, on the way home I raced a Vega wagon on the street that the owner claimed had a warmed over 350/auto... I crushed him from either a stop or a slow roll every time.

 

With your setup (which is MUCH faster than my old Vette) I believe you will have NO problems!

 

Post the outcome!
