Glad you went with the Centerlines, they look awesome on there.

Car looks clean though, I dig it a lot.

The Centerlines were perfect for the car. I never even gave thought about upgraded brakes for this car. The corvette setup looks great on there especially in the grey. Subtle enough a lot of people won't realize but then when you do your definitely going to take interest in the rest of the car. I really like what you've done with the car and i look forward to seeing it at a meet one day. It's nice to see someone building something different then the rest.

Yes now I just have to drag the car back to the track and hope with the better tires I can somehow pull off a 12 second run without having to switch over to drag radials!

Looks pretty sweet.

With the C5's smaller pistons you won't have to worry about pedal travel issues.. My 98-02 F-body calipers definitely added some travel.

Yeah that is the reason why I went with the C5 calipers. My friend has the F-bodies and I noticed the squishy petal. However you can add a Pontiac Grand Prix GXP brake petal to help that. I am installing one into my car for the heck of it.

I finally got my Regal into the 12's!

Well since 2008 my best 1/4 time to date was a 13.003 @ 108.31 with a 2.150 60 foot. I have been dying to get my car into the 12's on a street trim setup.

Last Thursday before going to Atco Raceway NJ track later that day I swapped on my 2.7 pulley and did some tuning. I ran the car with my new street tires and 93 octane pump gas.

The newer tires seemed to help a little bit more off the line but once the boost kicked in with the new pulley the tires were pretty much useless at that point. I started slipping around the 50mph+ range which I think is why I trapped a slower mph this time around then in the past?

For some reason the track this year has not been that great either. The last time I was at the track this year I saw my worst 1/4 times and 60 foots.

Even if my 60 foots weren't that much better and my mph was slower I was able to pull off a 12 second run finally. I felt so happy after getting my time slip and seeing a 12.99 instead of the same old low 13 runs.

I know my car should technically be faster with the mods I have. However unless I throw some DR's or slicks on the car I myself really don't think I can do much better. I really think if I was able to cut a lower 60 foot I see mid 12's. However with the new 2.7 pulley the car just feels like a totally different beast to me and I more then happy with a 12.99 slip.

On my first run I pulled off a 12.994 @ 107.82 with a 2.118 60ft. I raced a newer turbo BMW sedan.


On my second run I ran a 13.126 @ 107.52 with a 2.107 60ft. I raced a Integra coupe.


On my third run I ran a 13.401 @ 107.58 with a 2.261 60ft. I raced the same Integra again.

Last Saturday 7-18-09 I attended a local Regal GS meet. It was a decent turn out considering the short notice. We all had a great BBQ at a local members house then cruised over to the Lowes parking lot in Eastern PA for the car show. After wards we stopped over at the Willow Grove Mall to take some pictures with the rest of the members that stuck around that long. One of the members had a much better Camera then my point and shoot and pulled my car aside to snap some pictures. Due to the lack of time/light we went up to the top floor of the parking garage and snapped some pictures. I have to say they are the best looking pictures I have seen of my car yet vs my point and pooper camera. He told me these are unedited but they are good enough for me.

Rest of Pictures: My 2000 Buick Regal GSE 7-18-09 Pictures













Just an example of where the car has come from back in February 2007 after hitting a deer:

I cleaned up the first page of my member journal. It really didn't reflect what the car is to me and the work I have put into it over time.

Took my regal with a few other members over to Sloppy Mechanics 3rd Annual Fall Dyno Day in Allentown Pa. This was a fun event and I was glad to see so many different types of cars and good group of people.

My first and best WHP run of the day was 319WHP (lets round to 320WHP hah) and the 2nd run was 318WHP. I am happy with my results considering the best WHP with my cam has higher then stock compression and stage 3 heads while I am on stock heads and stock compression. Pulls were done in 3rd gear and up to 130MPH+

Here is my Dyno Sheet:


Here are my Dyno Runs:

April to May 2010

A buddy of mine at the time was looking for a ported supercharger for his new intercooler setup on his Buick Regal. I had always thought about upgrading my currently Eaton Generation 3 (III) to a Generation 5 (V) supercharger from the 2004-2007 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP

The benefit of the Gen V over my older Gen III supercharger is:
• Larger Inlet/Outlet
• Much higher efficiently = lower outlet temperature
• More boost verses Gen III SC with same pulley size
• Smaller vent holes = LOUDER WHINE 


I was lucky enough to come across an Eaton Gen V SC for pennies and sold my old one to my buddy.

Before I installed the Gen V SC onto my car, I stripped it down to clean it up, have the outlet ported out for my Intercooler. I also painted the housing black to match my valve covers.

During my gen V SC upgrade, I decided to throw some other parts onto the car while I was at it.

List of upgrades:
• Eaton Generation V Supercharger
• ZZPerformance Stage III Water to Air Front Mount Heat Exchanger
• Supercharger Belt Wrap System
• ZZPerformance 10.3mm Spark Plug Wires
• Intense Red Polyurethane Upper Rear Motor Mounts


After completing this setup, my boost psi level went from 10 to 12 PSI up to 13 to 14.5+ PSI. My boost level is also much more constant then it was before. My cars supercharger belt was slipping horribly without the belt wrap kit I have now. I actually was losing more boost then my car could have actually produced back then. The car certainly feels like it has picked up some decent power. I guess it all comes down to what it puts down at the next dyno and track event. I may actually have to get a larger pulley for the new supercharger because I was seeing knock at WOT. I can tune it out, however I am trying to keep to a strict tuning method on my car.






2nd to 3rd gear WOT Run

awesome, i was lookin at alot of 3800sc w-bodys. Grand prix were nice, but only in coupe form. Black GS is definitly my favorite, just so hard to find with low miles and seats that werent clawed by a cat.
