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.

Glad to hear it. Would be a tragedy for us remaining owners to lose the knowledge in these forums.

@  dezldave961 : (12 July 2020 - 01:55 AM)

Hosted a buddy and his family for cookout... Ya, not alot on forums lately. Just keeping the lights on.

@  ejguillot : (08 July 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Everyone have a good 4th? This place is a ghost town...

@  ejguillot : (10 May 2020 - 10:43 PM)

Sweet!

@  dezldave961 : (07 May 2020 - 04:14 PM)

Got bored and started making build video...

@  dezldave961 : (04 May 2020 - 04:05 AM)

I need to hunt down the little black trim bar that's at the top edge of the GS rocker panel cover, for driver's side between rear door and wheel well.

@  ejguillot : (03 May 2020 - 02:42 AM)

I've been on there too. I hope this forum is kept open, there's too much info to allow it to be lost!

@  dezldave961 : (24 April 2020 - 10:25 PM)

I've been monitoring GrandPrixForums and 3800Pro (don't have FB)... also hopped on TurboBuick, but 99% GN chatter from boomers

@  ejguillot : (19 April 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Everyone at home, plenty of free time.

@  ejguillot : (19 April 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Nobody posting? Why not?

@  ejguillot : (27 March 2020 - 05:19 PM)

In Topic: Triple Edge no longer selling built transmissions?

19 March 2020 - 08:54 PM

Yeah, but I can't afford a $4000 transmission in the next 2 weeks. Like most browsing their website, I was just looking to see how much they cost, and when I was ready, would order one. Now that can't happen.


In Topic: '97 Regal GS vs 70s Dodge pickup

07 March 2020 - 02:20 PM

Thats true... I was just listing the track conditions for those trying to guess MY performance with the mods that are on the car.

Work has been throwing so much OT at my group lately, that I havent had much time to work on or race the car. This weekend I hope to get the catted downpipe installed (to replace my non-catted one), and do some fluid and filter servicing. Had to miss opening weekend at Cecil County Dragway this Fri/Sat cause of work... but so did the kid in the Dodge. Maybe next weekend we will have some time to go down.

You think running a 50/50 mix of 93 and 100 octane (basically 97 octane) will be enough to run the 3.4 pulley for a few passes? Or should I just use straight 100?

In Topic: '97 Regal GS vs 70s Dodge pickup

28 February 2020 - 03:00 AM

Just found out he only went from 3.23s to 3.55s... not too much of a jump. He will also be on street tires.

 

Also, went through my parts accumulation in the garage recently and am updating my list with the following:

 

- ZZP 3" downpipes with race cat

- ported and jet-hot coated stock manifolds and crossover pipe

- Walker intermediate pipe and muffler (basically stock replacements)

- ZZP modular pulley system with 3.8/3.6/3.4 inch pullies

- fenderwell intake with K&N filter

- DHP 1.0 PCM

- B&M trans cooler

- Racetronix fuel pump with Hotwire kit

- 104 plugs

- A/C delete

 

All fluids and filters will be fresh, and the blower oil and couplers will be new. Car always sees Sunoco 93 octane. Can splash a few gallons of Sunoco 100 unleaded, as there is a pump right around the corner from the drag strip. Sticky tires are not an option, as the wife was kind of livid about me even putting this kind of work and money into the car (I had all the parts previously). I will be racing in negative DA at a well prepped track. Crossing my fingers, but not holding my breath.

Reviving this...

 

I just brought my GS back to life. Gonna try and do maintenance and throw in a few mods I've been squirreling away in the next few weeks to run the kid in the Dodge when Cecil County Dragway opens the first weekend in March. Going to be hard with all the OT my job has been throwing at me recently. Would love to see his face when his big block Mopar gets beat by a little V6.

 

He has done gears, added a posi, and fitted an MSD ignition to the pickup since the last time he ran it. Going to be a tough race to win...
