Watch this video for answers to all your questions (songs, car mods,
setups, etc..) along with bonus footage and updates.
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!
Z34 - Intake and chip. Stock at the time of the Iroc-Z race.
SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races
in this Video)
vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track.
Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
Vs stock G8. Regal: same mods as above
11.9 @ 112 in the 1/4 on slicks with some c16 race gas mixed in, m90 blower
Vs full bolt on, gears, tuned 2011 Mustang v6. Regal: TVS swap with
stock TVS pulley. 7psi of Boost.
vs full bolt on, 3.55 gears, tuned 1998 Cobra. Regal: same setup as vs the
Vs 330whp low 12 second Vortech supercharged 2002 Mustang GT. Regal: TVS swap + 2.8''
pulley (14psi) and ethanol.
374whp with same mods as vs the blown GT
As always the Regal had stock heads and never had an Intercooler!
Thanks for all the comments!
First two songs:
"Wake of the Martyrs"
By Secession Studios
Regal GS vs 240sx Turbo, WRX, WRX Wagon
99 Regal GS - Tune, 3.4 pulley, 3" downpipe, zero knock count. The interior
was out to clean the carpet and replace the rear speakers. Weight with the
interior out was 3340 lbs on 1/2 a tank (no driver).
The car runs a fairly consistent 13.8 @ 102 on that setup at around 60°
Next we will be testing a smaller 3.2 pulley and meth injection followed by
E85. We've also mounted an intake air temp sensor directly underneath the
blower outlet to measure temp differences between different pulleys and
spraying different combinations of methanol and water.

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!

Super Sleeper 1972 Nova - /BIG MUSCLE
Wanna race? If so you may want to reconsider. You see this is Dru Diesner's
1972 Chevrolet Nova and it's anything but stock. From a looks perspective
it's nothing special, in fact most people wouldn't put up $500 for this
thing. Look a little deeper though and OH MOMMA! You see under its faded
green paint lurks a twin supercharged LS2 that makes 1,160 hp... at the
rear wheels. It epitomizes the term "sleeper", and is lethal to just about
every other road going vehicle it comes in contact with. Big Muscle
recently visited Northern Chicago to get a sample of this beast, and holy
crap was it one of the best automotive experiences we've ever had.

2014 Buick Regal GS AWD Review and Road Test

In my mind, Volkswagens used to be the "Euro Buick." Positioned as a note
above the mass market rabble, VW's Passat shared parts with Audi's A4, the
Touareg and Phaeton were luxury cars with a mass market logo on the hood.
Then Volkswagen decided this was the wrong strategy for them so they
repositioned VW as the German alternative to Toyota and Chevrolet. This
left a gaping hole in the market for shoppers looking to step into a
Eurpoean near-luxury vehicle that flew under the radar. And then Buick
stepped in. Say what? That's right, Buick's Opel-based product offensive
has transformed the brand from Barcalounger wheels for the octogenarian to
a window into the soul of GM's German brand. This transformation isn't an
easy one as Buick's problem wasn't just blue-haired buyers and slinky-soft
springs. Buick is the penultimate middle child. Jammed between Chevrolet
and Cadillac, brand B's mission is to give Chevy buyers something to aspire
to and Cadillac buyers something to graduate from. The Buick Regal I had
for a week is in even more of a tight spot being the middle child's middle
child slotting between the Verano and LaCrosse.
GM's HiPer Strut suspension is designed to bring the steering axis more in
line with the tire centerline, something you typically find in rear-wheel
drive cars. Aligning the axises more closely results in better tracking,
less torque steer and a front tire with a more consistent camber across the
suspension's travel. Versus the outgoing model, the front tires contact
patch is improved in corners when the front suspension is loaded resulting
in higher grip. Coupled with an AWD system that sends 50% of the power to
the rear under hard acceleration, we get the first Buick in a long time
with virtually zero torque steer.
The downside to the trendy new steering knuckle design is feel. Steering is
very precise but suffers from the same Novocaine-laced feeback as
everything else out there with electric power steering. Coupled with a
58/42 F/R weight distribution, the Regal GS has impeccable manners up to
9/10ths where things go pear-shaped and you start oversteering off into the
bushes. Trouble is without steering feedback it's hard to tell where
9/10ths is located. In contrast, the Volvo S60 T6 AWD and S80 T6 AWD offer
less grip but more feel.
2014 Buick Regal GS AWD Exterior-007
Driving a FWD Regal back to back with out AWD tester, I kept thinking
"there's just something I dislike about the FWD model". As it turns out
there is a reason the FWD Regal felt unsettled in the rear over broken
pavement, the AWD model gets an entirely different "H-Link" independent
rear suspension. Coupled with the active dampers, the Regal felt well
composed on a variety of road surfaces despite being tuned firmer than the
rest of the American and Swedish competition.
Put your foot to the floor and the 2014 GS will run to 60 in 6.7 seconds,
exactly the same as the W-Body Regal GS I remember with fond memories. The
difference of course is that the W-Body's torque steer made the car feel
like it was part car ans part carnival ride while the 2014 model tracks
straight and true with zero drama all the way to a 15.2 second 1/4 mile.
Stacking this up with the competition, the Regal is notably slower than the
Cadillac CTS/ATS 2.0T and Volvo's 3.0L turbocharged models; and a hair slower than the
3.7L Lincoln MKZ, Lexus ES 350 and Acura TL.
03 maxima 6 speed vs jetta 1.8t 16psi
2003 maxima 6 speed stock vs jetta 1.8t 16psi with bolt ons, exaust. Not
sure what else he had on, but he said he's done a couple of things to it.
Pretty even race we started to go into a turn so we started to slow down.
It was from second gear all the way to 4th.
