I think we can do that

@  ejguillot : (01 January 2021 - 07:29 PM)

Happy New Year all! Let's keep this board alive for 2021.

@  dezldave961 : (26 November 2020 - 07:26 PM)

Same. While having my GTP from 02-14, I built it for a buddy in 09 and bought it from him in 16. Going all out now while we're still on partial shutdown. Great way to pass the time.

Welcome back earth1. I'm still sticking by my project regal, even if it has been a garage queen for the last couple of years.

@  earth1 : (18 November 2020 - 03:27 PM)

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.

I finally remembered my password and can get logged in. I have missed posting to this forum. Lots of things to add here from my own Regal GSE project.

@  ejguillot : (20 October 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Well, welcome back!

@  Marchi1 : (13 October 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Holy Crap I got in...finally remembered my login

@  ejguillot : (06 October 2020 - 01:41 PM)

Glad to hear there are still lurkers around.

@  buck531 : (05 October 2020 - 12:15 AM)

@  de.regal : (04 October 2020 - 10:50 PM)

Still lurk every day

@  tpivette : (03 October 2020 - 02:32 AM)

Sucks these forums are as vacant as they are... oh well, there's still the faithful like us!

@  kevandkaye : (27 September 2020 - 02:40 AM)

Yet still, we lurk. :o

@  ejguillot : (27 September 2020 - 01:08 AM)

Yeah, Facebook took over and killed forums.

@  dezldave961 : (26 September 2020 - 03:24 AM)

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.

@  ejguillot : (23 September 2020 - 09:02 PM)

Finally updated my signature to match my current Buick.

@  ejguillot : (10 September 2020 - 03:20 AM)

Things are terminally quiet around here...

@  sky72lark : (07 August 2020 - 12:38 AM)

@  dezldave961 : (29 July 2020 - 04:06 AM)

Just became a moderator on 3800Pro, so that's fun. I know it's gone thru a couple hands since Intense got sold, then that guy sold the forum. Not sure what that'll help, but it's something.

#364683 MBA

Posted by ejguillot on 13 July 2013 - 02:38 AM

Think very carefully before getting an MBA. You'll run up heavy student loan debt, and without a few years of relevant experience you may well end up in an even worse catch 22 than you are now. Been there, done that.

#356342 Upgrades in progress

The lateral arms might be worth doing if you can get them for a good price.

Read this: http://www.jalopyjou...ad.php?t=350800 regarding the acetone/ATF mix. I tried it and now it's all I use. Squirt it on with a 5cc syringe (the type you get at the drug store for liquid cold medication). Both fluids are fairly cheap for the quantity, give it a shot.

Mine were no fun too. 6 ohio winters...

Try the following loosener: a 50/50 mix of acetone and transmission fluid. The acetone breaks down the rust and the trans fluid helps it seep in and keeps it slippery. And more use of the torch (heat gun works well too), plus get a bigger hammer. :)

#349892 Engine Oil Viscosity

Posted by ejguillot on 02 January 2013 - 09:31 PM

I think I'm going to try the 5w-40 actually... wouldn't that help more with the cold start oil circulation?


For a different perspective on oil, read this:

According to the various threads, the author has performed multiple viscosity studies on various fluids, and does all the mechanical work on his Ferraris and Lamborghinis.
