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've got a '98 Buick Regal GS that I inherited from my brother. It has some mods that I've done, but I'm wondering what to do next.

 

So far:

3.4" ZZP modular pulley

4" JMB fender well intake

ZZP downpipe

ZZP 1.0 PCM

PRJ fuel pump relay harness

A/C delete

ZZP aluminum radiator

ZZP aluminum trans pan (also changed to Dex 6 fluid and new filter)

 

 

I also have a set of 105# valve springs a set of 1.9 rockers from ZZP that I haven't installed yet.

 

I am looking at intercooling or getting a set of the eBay SpeedDaddy headers next. The headers are fairly inexpensive, but I'm worried that it will be really loud. The intercooler is more expensive, and I worry about hood clearance. What would be the next good mod to do for the car?

 

I've been out of the loop as far as 3800/L67 for quite a while...but getting back into it as I like the car a lot. I'm mostly into the old turbo Mopar stuff.

Headers

E-85 if available

 

Cam instead of Rockers

 

Any or all of these you need to update your tune.

Have you read the "Newbie Guide"?  IIRC, colder plugs (Autolite 105's) comes to mind with your list of mods. Do a search and maybe some reading so it doesn't blow up, lol.

I don't believe so, but may have a long time ago. Like I said, I've been out of the loop. The car has had all the mods listed for close to 10 years though, and it's always been fine on 91 octane pump gas so I don't think it's about to "blow up".

 

I can finally get E85 locally now, that would be great if I could get a tune. Sounds like HPTuners would be required?

 

Also, how are you guys monitoring knock these days? I have an Aeroforce dual scan gauge setup for my Caliber SRT-4. Would that allow me to see real-time KR?

I too use the Aeroforce gauges. Not sure if the one that works in your Caliber will work in your GS. Check the Aeroforce website for part numbers vs. application.

Yup, it won't work. The Caliber uses the "CNC" series while the Regal needs the "PT" series.
