Yikes, well hope you guys get that resolved, so it stays active enough to remain viable.

the sign in process is broke because the captcha is non-functional. That is why no new members.

Somewhat true, but I'm not going to get too real about the demographics of Regal owners past & present. It'd be out of place on a Regal forum, and make people cross-eyed coming from a Regal owner. :blink:

@  Marchi1 : (28 April 2021 - 06:34 PM)

we are also hitting another round of buyers...and the group is again the young crowd and realizing that the older Regal is a bargin and normally better maintained than the GP of the saemarea.

Hey, that's where I buy my top-of-the-line Spectre intake parts for my hotrod! (pre-turbo)

@  alemstrom : (26 April 2021 - 11:33 PM)

I'm here at Advance Auto

@  dezldave961 : (24 April 2021 - 02:22 PM)

We're now in a preservation community that some may discover, but it's been spread thin and the traffic has shifted away from the initial sharing styles (Tim/Zoom discuss this on ZZP podcasts, when those 4cyl goobers let them talk).

@  dezldave961 : (24 April 2021 - 02:20 PM)

The vehicles themselves dictate the demographic and activity level based on their following. GTP's drew the majority of the L67 crowd, including myself, and current 4/6/8cyl offerings of the last 15yrs are where 99% of our former peers and newcomers have shifted to.

@  Marchi1 : (21 April 2021 - 02:25 AM)

There are a few who come here for the info.....

@  dezldave961 : (19 April 2021 - 10:57 PM)

Ya, 3800/Wbody forums have cleared out. I hear there's some FB groups, but I'm ont on there and it sounds similar to the newbie-centric folks I see the last 1-2yrs on 3800pro & GPF.

@  glendayle : (18 April 2021 - 03:59 AM)

Man this thing used to be hoppin' on the daily. How times have chagned.

@  glendayle : (18 April 2021 - 03:59 AM)

LOL, someone chatted?!

@  dezldave961 : (17 April 2021 - 02:04 PM)

Just keeping the candle lit, as I mentioned on my only remaining local ClubGP chapter of the 3-4 I was very active on in my 20's

@  Marchi1 : (15 April 2021 - 07:00 PM)

nope...just us old timers

@  WildGS : (15 April 2021 - 03:56 AM)

are people still here?

@  dezldave961 : (12 April 2021 - 09:46 PM)

Hey, chuggin' along. Just finished a big overhaul on my turbo build after 12yrs.

@  Nateteo : (12 April 2021 - 05:56 PM)

literally, the last time I logged in was 3 years ago hows everybody doing

@  dezldave961 : (12 April 2021 - 04:43 PM)

Ya, they do open bracket at GS Nationals. I may go if I'm free, just to attend, even if there's no cage, yet.

@  Marchi1 : (12 April 2021 - 01:32 PM)

I am taking the SC car.I am sure it is a big event as it is in Bowling Green, KY so yeah will need to be fully copliant, but I think there is a bracket class. God I hope so

@  dezldave961 : (08 April 2021 - 01:50 PM)

*S&W Racecars cage for 95-99 Monte... I'd actually fit the xTSM class, aside from not being a RWD, if I swapped the Air-Air I/C back in. Probably wouldn't be competitive just yet, but I'd like to see them squirm.

I have a 3" exhaust to a dual 2.5" split.  I have a 3" magnaflow cat and the Magnaflow 12641 resonator (3" in/out, 36: length) and stock 04 GTP mufflers.  I was toying with the idea of deleting to two mufflers.  Would that be obnoxiously loud?  Or would the cat and resonator make it sound ok?

would be very loud, theres a vid on yt of a gtp set up like that, not a 3 inch, so that could only be worse sounding.

Stick with the mufflers.  I've heard a lot of combinations on these cars. 2.5, 3, cat/no cat, res/no res, duals, stock mufflers, no mufflers.  You get the idea.  They seem to never have that muscle car sound.

Just a thought.  I was thinking I would give it a try since it would be cheap to just have them cut out.  Some of the youtube videos make them sound nice at idle, but like crap when they drive by or rev it up.  I was also thinking some glasspacks in the back, but that would probably sound almost as bad huh?

I would not make any exhaust decisions based on YT vids, they sound quite different in real life. I say go for it man, trial and error. Make sure you keep the mufflers though.

Between two of the Regals I owned I had many different exhaust setups so why not try and pick something that sounds good to YOU. I personally had best results with biggest 3" Magnaflow resonator I could fit, no cat and Dynomax VT muffler. Since I've replaced the single 3" Dynomax with dual 2.25" Hooker Max Flows with the same configuration and I absolutely love it. VERY deep sound, I might consider a high flow cat to quiet it down some more to keep the wife happy :icon-lol:

Wish I had a more detailed clip of my 03GS with the electric cutout idle/open/closed etc.... but here's what it sounds like with Ebay OBX headers, 3"DP, Straightpipe, resonator, WOT run at the track....I'm @ 4:07  HTH =3
