    The car is a 1999 Buick Regal GSX.

    Its a little project car my grandpa and I work on together.

    Before I modded it a little bit, just basic bolt ons and it hit 13.2 in the 1/4 mile, stock supercharger and everything just minor bolt ons. I made a mistake by taking it too the track with high boost (on race gas) and was too tired too swap the pulley when I was on my way home (long drive home from the track and it was dark at the track). I forgot all about it and then my grandpa was driving it (on pump gas now, still with the high boost pulley) and got on it trying to mess with an M3 and it didnt like high boost and pump gas so it popped a few pistons. We said fuck it and went all out on the rebuild.

    Specs on the motor:

    231ci Bored, Balanced and Blueprinted.
    All Forged and coated Internals internals, with 8.0:1 Compression.
    Whipple Whipple W140AX - Twin Screw Supercharger @ ~28, maybe more with racegas
    BTTK Intercooler

    ATI Harmonic Balancer
    Headers are 2" Primaries, with a 4 inch collector
    HPTuners Engine Management System
    Mototron flow matched & balanced 65lb/hr injectors

    Tranny:
    Modbug Race Tranny
    Custom 245mm torque converter with 2800 Stall
    Magnafluxed and rebalanced L36 flywheel
    Modbug Performance Shift kit
    GMR Torsen Torque Biasing Differential
    SFPH 4T65EHD "Bullet Proof" Half Shafts

    Wheels, Tires, Suspension and Brakes:
    16x7.5 '95 Mustang GT Rims. Black with polished lip.

    BMR [SIZE=-1]Trailing Arms[/SIZE]

    Not bad, I'm partial to all black, though. You get any of that stuff from the W Body store?

  6. That's a great project! Everyone overlooks any buick newer than the GN and T type regals of the late 80's. Talk about a sleeper.

    The guy that owns WBS used to be a SHO vendor, he does good work. Fun to drink with, too. :run:

    btw, the two pictures of the engine with the whipple on them look like scale models.

    Would love a set like that for my GN, if they could be made.

    Car's pretty slick too. Nice job!
