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.

2004 Transmission in to my 2003 GS?

Ok, so the interchange manual says that the 2004 trans is a one year only part.

But, from what I have been reading, the 2003 and 2004 trans is the same (meaning same wiring harness and plug as well as the solenoids, etc) except for the converter that was shipped with the unit from GM. They have a different K-factor (stall speed).

 

Can anyone confirm or deny if this trans will work in my '03 GS?

 

Thanks in advance.

I believe rhe wire harness changed so the pinout will be different. Not 100% sure but when I was looking to do something similar that’s what I remember

OK, I'll check into that as well.

Do you know of any online sources for the wiring diagrams for those two model years?

So, I wound up doing a lot of research on the two model years. Here is what I came up with - The part numbers for all of the electronics are the same. The plug for the electronics is the same, the PRND lever was the same.The torque converter shipped with the new 04 trans was the same K-factor as was required for my 03 Regal. Transmission lines (which are supposed to be different) were the same.

 

The interchange manuals say that this trans will not work in my 03 Regal - BULL!

 

I put the 2004 trans in my 2003 Regal and have been driving it without any issues for about a month now.

Thanks! I almost forgot to come back and follow up on the thread.

I don't know how many times I've run across threads on forums that are 100% related to information I am looking for, only to find that the thread just dies off because somene stopped updating it with good info....lol

Having an 03 for so long I’ve pretty much have everything down expect the transmissions interchange. I know the oem 03/04 has minor upgrades to parts that fail in the earlier years but other then that, I’ve never tried to swap a different year into it.

Glad it worked out for you.  I have a rebuilt transmission that I pulled from my 99 GS.  Looking at an 03 GS for my wife that has a bad trans.  Any idea if the 99 trans will work in an 03 GS?

I would bet the electronics are different but you never know the 04 worked in the 03.  Would be interested to know though.

I know that the PCM and the wiring and plug are different.

That's too bad.  Which years are supposed to be compatible?  I know the 97.5 is different altogether, but what about 98-04?
