Not all high horsepower 3800s have to be loud. This 340whp setup runs a stock Exhaust, stock manifolds, an engine that hasn't been cracked open, gets 28mpg on the expressway and even has luxuries like navigation and bluetooth. Whether you want loud and ostentatious or quiet and subdued we can get your 3800 set up.

Cartuning Performance Grand Prix GTP Turbo runs 10.93 @ 127.55 mph
10.9 run in full street weight (minus mufflers). Would have been a quicker
run if 3rd gear would have held (you can hear it switching between 2nd and
3rd...I also let off the gas at the 1/8th mile to try and make it shift,
and it ended up going into 4th for the rest of the run!)

This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found
footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny.
No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are
all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This
is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same
setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!

Grand Prix GTP knock after machine shop mistake
Payed a machine shop to replace a piston in the car after valve to piston
contact, also caused by the machine shop. They had to remove the rod from
the crank, and were instructed to replace the bearing if need be. They
didn't and a day later and 85 miles later, it was knocking.
I am an ASE certified mechanic, not some backyard billy bob mechanic. I
build race engines, but choose not to do short block rotating assyembly due
to the liability. I have built tons of these engines, and this was the
first to have a knock. I know it was not my fault, because the cylinder
knocking was also the cylinder they took apart. The reason the damn valve
hit the head, was because they didn't machine my new bronze valve guides
enough, and a valve stuck in the head during engine break in.
