The Story of this car..
Brought out storage,in year 2000
had 2 differant motor builds both whipe the camshafts,little known to
people back then was the camshaft manufactors fault ,the cams metal was
flawed,the 90's SP cams

Car goes to KDK Performance in FL

$8000 rebuild,car blows up 1/2 track at 110mph
3 total rebilds all i payed for,Dynoed an to the track same
thing, 1/2 track garnade First Run !!
4th new motor bought an payed for, i pull car out KDK
spend over $30,000 in cash an parts totaling over 3 years
I call Cal Hartline,He recommeds Lamotta performance
The new motor from KDK goes striaght on the Dyno an BOOM!! headgasket
launches as all the times before
I asked Jake at Lamotta if he can fix it, an add GNX style dash an new Intercooler,6 months later
motors done at Heartbeat racing engines,Even though Lamottoa dropped my
motor to him for whatever reason i had to go pick it up.(that cost the
tranny in my truck!)After Lamotta installs the motor an fires it,I called
Jake an he said i quote "Its fine, ready to go"..I pick it up, Its belowing
white smoke out the exshuast very 10 minutes,water temps high, oil
pressuers All over the place!!!,,the dash speedo don't work, (the whole
reason i had the GNX dash kit Installed!!) an the grill ,Lamotta broke the
headerpanel flap so my Grill dangles in place,had to buy whole new front
headlight pannel,won't mention them storing my car under a car on lift that
$13,000 in total parts an labor back to square one
Piston pin was riding up an down the #4 cylinder wall
Car stays in My Garage..

have over 2000miles on it

suspenion along with the brakes,Possiably adding a 6 point roll cage...8^)
Moral to this build,Try your Hardest to Have one All-in-One shop work on
your car,Or you'll get the Third person run around,(example), Oh i'll take
your car an your money,but its the machist fault or part builders fault why
nothing works,pay us, blame them...
First time you here that....Run!!!
Get all work in Writing,You might need it later

1987 Buick Grand National (Regal T-Type Turbo) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
**I made an editing error at the beginning. Thanks a bunch to Streetside
Classics of Charlotte, NC for allowing me to film this video!
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the understated muscle car of the late 80s, the Buick Grand
National, this one specifically the Regal T-Type. The GN and the T-Type are
identical except for badging and interior trim. It wasn't until you
stepped it on up to the GNX did you get the truly different package (which
I will explain in the video). The GN is arguably the most menacing looking
buick of all time with it's black monochrome paint scheme and turbo charged 3.8 V6 pumping out amazing
performance numbers for the time period, even today! A unique experience
to be able to check out one of these beasts. During this presentation, we
will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with
the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data,
and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior
and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only
get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will
highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any
available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video
without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

1464 HP Grand National dyno
Owners name is Jim, this is an 87 GN with a funny car cage, air to liquid
Intercooler, SBC V8 (yeah, I
know), 106mm single turbo, running on
E85. The car Dyno'd
1464 HP but since this was a challenge no torque numbers were shown. The PA
system they have sucks and this car brought such a large crowd it took me
more than ten minutes just to see the screen and verify the numbers.
He won the Car Craft Dyno Challenge in the turbo class at the 2010 Car Craft Summer
