    2004 Turbo Regal intro - Dave

    Forgot to mention I'm also building the PCV vacuum system that some boosted LS folks use, with the AIR injection pump from early 2000's GM's on a Hobbs pressure switch trigger. Coupling that with a catch can, and we'll see how it does as I monitor vacuum on the lines. Also, got a nice 2.5...

    2004 Turbo Regal intro - Dave

    It's been a few weeks, but I've popped into the garage a few times while waiting for the Holden intake to make its way thru Customs, etc. Was able to accomplish the following while waiting: - new oil pan gasket - new valve cover gaskets (probable source of leaks causing mess; these ZZP...

    1998 and 2000 GS Wheel Options (GM) ?

    If you want mesh, look for the early 90's Pontiac GP/Bonneville wheels. The styling carried over from the 80's for a few years. Car-part.com should show them w/ images. Also, most Mustang wheels work (4.5" or 115/114.3mm bolt circle, as mentioned). My previous owner put the 99-04 GT...

    Another new best in the 01 Regal LS SC3800 UPDATED 7/12/2020

    Gotcha. I raced the heck out of my stock trans from no mods in the mid-14's to high 12's at 111mph on street tires and 333whp/400+wtq with a cam. Wound up snapping the input shaft racing a friend 2min after leaving a weekly club meet one night. It happens when it happens... Just have a spare...

    Don't worry about 1/8th's now, you're running good numbers on a big boy track!

    This is a stereotype everyone tailors to their own convenience. A bunch of the things you've deleted could fall in that category already, for common versions of that term. However, on the pure basis of converting a chassis to a drag-only setup, you've only scratched the surface, and should...

    Just grab the site from the end (starting at http), and plug it into archive.org's wayback machine. It'll give you a few ideas here and there. He got down to 11.3 with his GenV/XPZ setup in the days we were still poking at these cars with sticks.

    Have you considered the cable mod? It's insane how simple and effective it is at raising the rear by halting the camber movement. I usually run blockers on the street and do this at the track. Check out the classic weight reduction page by Jamhoney (O.G. guy from the ClubGP days that made a...

    Great run, and the 1.7 launch is awesome. Don't stress gutting the car, you're making plenty of power to still be fast and not eliminate some comforts of the car for a tenth or two. You've got room for a few more mods without digging too deep, and it can be a mid-high 11's car in almost the...

    2004 Turbo Regal intro - Dave

    They appear to have welded it all together (not a fan). If I get frisky, I may go for the Holley upper from Summit, and get an adapter to customize for the Holden lower. Total would be ~$500, but maybe that's what next winter is for? Holley top for Hi-Ram use with carbs/blowers/etc...

    Also got an Australian Holden Commodore 3800 N/A (L36) intake manifold on the way from an eBay purchase. That might take about a month to arrive, so I'll run the L26 setup until all the conversion parts for that swap are ready. Example images from around the internet: ...installed in another...

    2004 Turbo Regal intro - Dave

    It's been almost 2 months since an update, but I was waiting for my new turbo pipes to be fabricated during the shutdown. They finally arrived ~75 days after ordering, and I put them on today... Time to start piecing together these and the (too many?) new parts I've collected the past few...

    Turbo V6 Camaro

    Ah, overlooked the "longblock" portion of your comment before. You could get by with some 1.9 rockers and 90# LS6 springs to give it a little more, and last a long time without much concern. If you wind up digging into it, that's a different story.

    Turbo V6 Camaro

    Great runs! Guessing that first one was a little rich (nevermind, I mixed up boost and A/F charts without labels)? What's inside the engine now? Fairly stock? Pretty similar to my '98 GTP's runs when it had a stock L36 block, XP cam, and Gen V M90 at about 15psi on 104 unleaded. You can have...
