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.

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.

With next round of mods I really need to install a wideband. My question is where should I weld the bung and what angle is preferable. This is a TOG downpipe, ZZP placed this blue sticker on that's about 14" away from the inlet. Seems like an ok location?

That sounds about right.  I think mine is about half way from the flex to the cat.  I'll try to find a picture and send it to you.

Mt TOG already had a bug welded to it.  It was closer tot he flex, at about the 8 o'clock position.  The wideband instructions say it needs to point up, but that's nearly impossible since the DP fits up into the tunnel along the floor board.   

 

I think I would install it first, weld it second.

Thanks for the replies! Also which sensor would you guys recommend?

I know 10* angle is the minimum from what I gathered, curious on how you got yours.

i got a cheap ebay dash 2 pod. cost like 8 bucks shipped iirc.  

 

its not a perfect flat fit on the dash, i meant to trim it to sit flush but never got around to it. used 3m panel tape, took a 1/2 inch of it, rolled it into a ball, and stuck it to the inside corners of the pod, then set it on the dash, it dont move, and yes you can lift it right off if need be. there was no way i was making any holes in the dash to keep it in place. 

 

you can see the left corner dont sit flush, trimming the right side would help it out. its also not in the way of your line of sight, like a A Pillar pod, the damn A frame is fat enough already, add more fat to it? no thanks. 

 

ive also got my meth light mounted in the pod now. wb and o/p.

That's probably something I'm gonna do, trim it here and there, double sided tape hehe

 

So what's the deal with WB logging using HPT? I have the basic version without option of hooking WB to it. Is the EGR wire the only option?

Still need the power and ground for the gauge but yea it is. There's a drop down menu on hpt for it. I don't remember exactly where it is on the software, I had to watch a YouTube video to find it lol

Was getting ready to pick it up but the description says it only works with CAN based OBD2, 2008 and newer. You have that thing on your Regal?
