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.

Finished my mountain cruise video, and the coilovers did NOT disappoint.

I think I had to do something similar on my LS4 to get the belt off.  GM never had a good track record for packaging things the past couple decades, since vehicles were no longer boats with a livingroom-sized bay that any goober could deal with.

Suck, but at least you should be able to get going again for ~$180-200 from a quick search.

Gonna have to go by the mantra of "having another man work on your car is like having another man sleep with..." Ya know. At least that's how it is for DIY people, once warranty isn't in the picture.

Good luck, and those cars are okd enough that I'd imagine a U-pull yard is now having some in there.

One of my earlier build videos last year (part 2 maybe?) showed when I was NPT tapping the heater core outlets to get secure connections there and run heater hoses thru the bracket and to the water pump.  I probably have more footage/pics if you want to have a separate topic for that.  I opted for keeping the Northstar, only because adapting wasn't too hard with my old Brian Teel plates, and I was already going custom with spacers to fit the ZZP Gen1 fuel rails underneath.

 

Suspension is fun, though. laugh.png   Honestly, the Z06 guy was pretty impressed with how I was going through the Blue Ridge curves at speed without getting hairy or barking tires.  The 255 Nittos held decent as I stayed in 2nd or 3rd most of the trip, with the coilovers, strut braces, and Dorman trailing arms putting in the core work so my stock-size drilled/slotted rotors didn't have to get worked hard... unlike an un-named newer import who definitely roasted his brakes in the final downhill section, and screeched bad as he left the meeting spot later.

Ya, I just spent $40 or so on the flexible Gates hoses and ICT billet couplers to make the path. I definitely referenced PRJ's photos of that one to make sure I had everything, especially when it came to the alternator being an F-body/older W-body style, so I didn't have to spend much more from AUS.
