David's Buick Regal T-Type
Watch this daily driver engine get high 12s/low 13s in a white 1987 Buick Regal T-Type with a turbocharged 3.8 V6. This isn't Davids first time at the track and I'm sure it won't be the last... as long as he can find a track to drive on. These clips were shot during the "Save KCIR" event at Kansas City International Raceway - November 12, 2011 to show support for this awesome and historic track. Unfortunately, the track will be closed soon. For more information on the track, visit http://www.kcir.net/.
If you have any comments or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate them.

1987 Buick Grand National Drag Racing Racelegal.com 9-7-2012

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 midsection 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.
