I want to thank those who run this site for their dedication and for keeping this site going through the years. To have a really good Regal GS, one has to have an extraordinary level of dedication to the car that includes a long-term commitment to it, and not just a passing fancy. Similarly, to the people that keep this site going through the years had to have a similar level of dedication and commitment to keeping it going. I just want to tip my hat, pay my sincere respect to this level of commitment, and say thank you. I will try to contribute what I can. I know that these cars are 20+ years old now and a lot of people have moved on from them, but I want to be counted as one of the ones that stuck with them for the long-term. I hope to see others that love their Regals be active here in this site, and for the Regal community to support each other. Count me in.
Ya, most of the original wave of active members have changed vehicles to something (probably) less mod-friendly, with the occasional person in an LS or Hemi that they do some bolt-ons to. Kinda sad that forums faded.
There might be a few other options, but I've got something similar that my buddy, previous owner, Sam stuck in the center of mine. I'll post something once my build gets to the cosmetic parts later on.
I've seen some eBay options if you use a couple different/generic search strings... "super 6 logo" "buick badge" "turbo 6"... Etc.
I've got the Gran Sport badges on the doors with the symbol, and the Super 6 center caps stuck into the Mustang Bullitt wheels, all done by previous owner. I like the simple OEM-style look that gave it, along with the GSX grille and "Turbocharged" trunk badge swap. Simple, subtle things are nice to keep it from looking like a highschooler went silly trying to make Grandma's hand-me-down car look "cool" in the McDonald's lot.
I'll post an update video when I get around to stitching the clips together. It's just 2 clamps from eBay (size will be noted in video text).
I was going to adapt an Energy Suspension transmission mount with an aluminum plate, but it might be simpler to modify/fill a stock mount to be more solid, instead. A ClubGP buddy did it years ago with urethane or epoxy, and I'm going to see what tomorrow holds for ZZP "sales" and go from there. (personally, I think a hand-made billet adapter to an existing poly mount may be cool enough to go for... already did the Holden spacers by hand)
I also ran into this as I'm overhauling my big turbo build. I actually did a mod to a fresh transmission mount that should be a help. Check out my latest update video to see the change. I'll post a picture during the install when I'm putting it back in next week,
The engine mount is a bit more difficult to modify/solidify, but I'm thinking about injecting a hardening compound into the hydraulic cavity of the OEM-style mount (a friend did this with something, but I forgot what... might text him and ask). Until then, I might try putting a spacer plate on the top to match the trans mount height for now, with some support tweaks. Not sure, but I'll share if/when I do it.
Yep, this is what some people refer to as the Big 3, I believe, which you can get from a vendor or just get some proper large battery cables to DIY it from the store. Usually, people will run the "alternator re-wire" positive cable, a large ground from a big bolt on the engine to somewhere like the strut tower, and a fresh big positive wire from the battery to the starter. Also, making sure the transmission ground, ignition ground, and any other exposed harness item is free of corrosion and protected with di-electric grease and/or anti-seize.
Glad to see you back to enjoying the car, and I'll see what else you've posted.
