Wheel Spin - Why they call me Turbo231 - My 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1
From my video archives, a very short video of my Buick in action.
This is my 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1, one of 468 made that year and the
last year of the designer cars.
Taken back in probably 2002, I was playing with the waste gate, trying to
find the right spot between Boosting
and getting her to spool the turbo. Fan
is running because the Jay Carter 93 Octaine chip makes it run any speed
under 55 for cooling. You can barely hear the turbo spool.
I do have other videos of this car on my channel...enjoy. (my lame
sideburns included...shot by my dad)

Buick Grand National drag Racing Racelegal.com 1-6-2012
Friday night racelegal drag racing check out these buick grand national on
the 1/8 mile drag strip driven by donnie wang.
In 1986, a modified engine design with intercooling Boosted the performance even further; in 1987
it reached 245 hp (183 kW) and 355 lb·ft (481 N·m) of torque. Buick
dropped the T-Type package for Regal in 1987. There were only 7,896 turbo Regals produced in 1986. In 1987, when turbo Regals reached their peak in
popularity, a total of 27,590 turbo
Regals were produced through December, with those models produced between
September and December of that year window stickered as "1987½ Buick Grand
In 1987, a lightweight WE4 (turbo T)
option was offered. Only 1,547 of this variant were produced. They were
painted black and treated to the same blackout package as the Grand
National, including bumpers, grille, headlight and taillight trim. The
differences between a WE4 and the Grand National were the interior trim
package, wheels, exterior badging, aluminum bumper supports, and aluminum
rear brake drums as opposed to the Grand National's cast iron. The rear
spoiler was only available as a dealer installed option. 1987 was the only
year that the LC2 turbo option was
available on any Regal, making it possible to even see a Limited with a
vinyl landau roof and a power bulge turbo hood. turbo Regal Limiteds were one of the rarest models
of turbo Regals produced second only to
the GNX at 1,035 turbo Limiteds. turbo Regal Limiteds could be ordered with many
options with most having chrome external trim but for $35 could have been
built with the full black-out trim option making them extremely rare.
Limiteds were treated to a very luxurious interior with plush carpeting and
optional bench pillow seats and a column shift. The 1987 model would be the
end of the manufacture of the RWD "G-Body" Regal, but GM had to extend the
build of the Grand National to meet customer demand.
For the final year, 1987, Buick introduced the GNX at $29,900. Produced by
McLaren Performance Technologies/ASC, Buick underrated the GNX at 276 hp
(206 kW) and a very substantial 360 lb·ft (488 N·m) of torque. This
was created to be the "Grand National to end all Grand Nationals." Changes
made included a special Garrett T-3 turbocharger with a ceramic-impeller blowing
through a more efficient and significantly larger capacity Intercooler with a "CERMATEL
(Ceramic/Aluminum) coated" pipe connecting the Intercooler to the engine. A GNX
specific EEPROM, low-restriction Exhaust with dual mufflers, reprogrammed turbo Hydramatic 200-4R transmission with a
custom torque converter and transmission cooler, and unique differential
cover/panhard bar included more of the performance modifications. Exterior
styling changes include vents located on each front fender, 16 inch black
mesh style wheels with VR-speed rated tires, and deletion of the hood and
fender emblems. The interior changes of the GNX included a serial number on
the dash plaque and a revised instrument cluster providing analog
Stewart-Warner gauges, including an analog turboBoost
gauge. Performance was measured with a quarter mile time of 13.5 seconds at
102 mph (164 km/h) and a 0-60 mph (97 km/h) time of 4.7 seconds.  GNX
#001 is the 1986 prototype currently owned by Buick and sometimes makes
appearances at car shows around the US. The GNX had a ladder bar that ran
from the mid-section of the car to the rear axle, so as to increase
traction. This is also the reason why a GNX will actually lift the rear end
up when the car is about to launch heavily.
My 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1 Designer Series
This is a quick run down of my 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1 Designer Series
car. You can read all about it and see clear pictures at its website:
Sorry for the lack of action, it's just me showing some of the items I've
done to the car since I've owned it. I omitted that that the silver paint
is cracked and needs to be repainted and that I also needed to add the #7
lower body bushing. I plan to have it on the road in the next year or two.
It currently has just over 80k miles.
