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

@  WildGS : (30 April 2021 - 07:59 PM)

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

@  dezldave961 : (28 April 2021 - 11:54 PM)

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.

@  dezldave961 : (26 April 2021 - 11:55 PM)

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.

Are you putting them on yourself? It is a nice and inexpensive alternative but some of those had fitment issues, not sure if Speed Daddy though.

Here's what I did:

Mangaflow muffler 12641 to replace the resonator.  (barely fits, may need the ends cut off)

Dynomax VT 17957

And for the piping, I went with mandrelexhaustsystems.com 3" single for a GTP.

 

 

After a couple of years, the Dynomax has failed internally as sounds like crap.  Find a better muffler.

Any other suggestions for the headers? I like the ZZP complete setup but it's pretty pricey.

No, I will not be installing them myself.

Your best bet would be look at for sale sections for SLP/TOG/ZZP headers. Every now and then someone sells a set. grandprixforums.net has the most traffic, I'd look there daily. Spending close to a $1k for a new set seems bit excessive IMO...

I got lucky and picked up TOGs really cheap last year...didn't get a chance to install them yet :whistle:

Local guy is selling S&S headers for $150. They might even be my old headers. Ceramic coated, easy install. Let me know if you're interested.

So I ended up with these:

Pontiac Grand Prix High-Performance 6-2-1 Design Stainless Steel Exhaust Header Kit  and the ZZP 3" catback kit.

They will be installed next Wed.

Tailpipe is a little ricer looking, but I just say the pipe is the same size on the other side of the muffler.

Good stuff. Tail pipe is not ricer looking at all, just sticks out too much but that is just my personal preference. Got the headers on?

Headers are on, had the whole thing done at once. Also had new wires and Autolite 605 plugs put in while they were there.
