My D&S Performance Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal's TCI Mega-Shifter Update #3. 7-15-2011

This is THE-BIG-DAY!!! I just bought the Stage-1 home from the garage ... waiting for Tyrone's 2:40pm arrival, so we go install my TCI Mega-Shifter!!! I am scheduled to follow Tyrone to his shop ... I'm hoping HE drives the Stage-1 to "PONTIAC ALLEY" as I record for V8buick.com; A PONTIAC-GUY LOVING A BUICK 455 STAGE-1 REGAL!!! LMATFO!!! NOTICE#1; I gave the Stage-1 a few "revs" at the black Mustang ... whose driver gave me a nice "head-nod." NOTICE#2; The white Infiniti "got scared" and abruptly made a quick-left turn ... cause' the BIG-BLOCK-BUICK was shaking his vehicle tremendously!!! LMATFO!!! OH-YEAH; a small 3200-rpm BURNOUT before I parked!

PONTIAC ALLEY with "T.K."/ Buick 455 Stage-1 Regal TCI Shifter Update #7. 7-16-2011
Tyrone gave me "demos" regarding utilizing this TCI Street-Fighter Mega-Shifter. It was so-freaking-funny (Much Respect, Tyrone LOL) hearing Tyrone make the "PONTIAC" engine sounds during his demo!!! T.K. is "Too-Cool!!!" I remember when I had the type energy T.K. has ... and I really miss it. Apparently, he is going to follow in his Father's foot-steps ... and go PONTIAC also. The next video shows my shifter plate "template" in place. SO-FAR-SO-GOOD!!!





My D&S Performance Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal's TCI Mega-Shifter Update #4. 7-15-2011
This video was taken on the way to Tyrone's "PONTIAC ALLEY." Tyrone didn't meet me at my house as originally planned (he had to leave work earlier), so I met him at his shop at 2:50pm today. TYRONE LAUGHED AT MY BURNOUT I did at the beginning of his shop's block ... calling it "A POOR attempt at a burnout!!!" After today ... NO MORE "Drive-gear" BURNOUTS!!! NO I WILL BE ABLE TO GET 1ST GEAR!!!!





CDS 1987 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL exit from ... "THE-KING!!!" 10-16-2012
... just to monitor the Stage-1's HIGHWAY PERFORMANCE for the 1st time. When BRUNO and I went for "drive," Bruno couldn't give me anything other than a "thumb-up" due to my NOT FLOORING it ... nor giving him @ 1/2-throttle demos. He wanted me to open-it-up a bit ... I was scared to upset the Police & neighbors. LOL THE BUICK PULLS REALLY HARD PAST 2800-RPM!! This video view looks much slower than the "live' accelerations. IT'S MUCH faster THAN the 455 Buick motor Scotty at Pee-Gee Performance (in Brooklyn at the time) built for me ... which is WHAT I WANTED (since some idiot-low-life STOLE that Regal-455). I NEVER took the "455" past "3500-RPM!" I wanted to get some idea of how the Buick accelerates between 2000-3500-RPM on these badly thrashed used $30 street tires. This video looks slower than the "real-time" acceleration for some reason. Engine temp was a firm 170-degrees all the way to BRUNO'S and back. I AM VERY HAPPY with my D&S Performance Stage-1 Buick 455 V8 thus far, Thank-God. MY FRONT SUSPENSION REALLY NEEDS AN UPGRADE for the streets. UPDATES to follow.





My D&S Performance Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal TCI Mega-Shifter Update! 7-11-2011
This video was uploaded from my Android phone earlier to touch-base with upcoming modifications ... and cause' I just HAD to go see my Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal ... and start it up after this video's end. Tyrone & I are scheduled SATURDAY to "finally" install my TCI floor shifter in place of GM's factory "weak/plastic" floor shifter that came from the factory. I CAN'T WAIT TO LAUNCH IN 1ST GEAR!!!!!!!!! I got to tighten the TA Performance long-style headers ... but I really need to have Meineke install the header gaskets. SO-FAR-SO-GOOD, THANK GOD!!!





"11-SECOND-STEVE" and his 1986 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL at FLoyd Bennet Muscle Car Show! 6-10-2012
I finally got to meet "11-Second-Steve" in person today at The Floyd Bennet Field Auto/Muscle Car Show! Actually, if it wasn't for Steve's invite(s) ... I would have missed a really great display of ... AUTOMOBILES!!! Steve wants to race his 1986 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal against mine. ME TOO! Steve also informed me as to how to do a BURNOUT ... "correctly!" Steve stated that Ginger's Burnout with my Stage-1 Regal was BETTER than mine (Youtube video)! LOL Steve's Regal is SWEET ... put together correctly. I learned a few performance/traction mods from him. STEVE RAN AN 11:90 THIS WEEKEND ,,, without manually-shifting the Buick! He just put the shifter in DRIVE ... and let the 455 & the TH400 automatic transmission do the rest! Guess who showed up also????





My 1987 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal "briefly" taken to 2,800-RPM to Meineke! 4-02-2011
... ON THE WAY TO MEINEKE (Thanks to THE-KING and his Rochester820!). Mike (the owner of Meineke) is a very cool/straight-up dude. He treated me & my Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal like Royalty. This is the 1st time I actually BEAT ON my Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal a bit with the 1973 Buick 455 V8 built by Mr. Dan Smith of D&S Performance in Camden, NJ. The TH400 was built by Mr. Tyrone Taylor of PONTIAC-ALLEY secretly-located in Brooklyn, NY. WITHOUT Exhaust, the Buick pulls HARD under 3000-rpm!!! It was very cool BLOWING THE (old slick Oldsmobile 307 burnout tires still on the Regal ... GOTTA get the MT Drag Radials) TIRES OFF. Engine was running a bit HOT. Next video ... with 3" true duals!





CDS 1987 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal HOLLEY850 Double-Pumper Upgrade. 4-14-2011
I apologize for this video's abrupt end; my cellphone's memory card got maxed out. My new Holley850 Double-Pumper carburetor from Mr. Philip Nearing (a KING indeed ... also a V8Buick.com Member) was swapped-out earlier this morning from Mr.Tyrone Taylor's Holley750. "SUPER-SPECIAL-THANKS" to Mr. Tyrone Taylor of PONTIAC-ALLEY for getting my new Holley "correct & running!!!" At 1st, I felt it was the Holley causing the rough ENGINE idle ... (???) Since the beginning of this Project ... I've first used the factory 1973 Buick 455 Rochester-820 CFM 4-Barrel Carburetor for about 3-months ... then graduated to Tyrone's Holley750 ... NOW I HAVE MY VERY OWN "HOLLEY-850 4-BARREL DOUBLE-PUMPER CARBURETOR. I hand polished it myself with the help of Mother's. In closing, the new billet aluminum "overdrive" water pump pulley from TA Performance IS PERFECT! I never had the "correct" Buick 455 short-nose water pump pulley ... until NOW. It looks DEVASTATING! The PS belt does NOT french-kiss this WP pulley like the other did. I just need to get the 1-incorrect bolt in the pulley corrected. SO-FAR-SO-GOOD, Thank God.

My 1987 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal has tiny amounts of COOLANT in Engine Oil!! 4-13-2011
This video was taken today prior to discovering small traces of coolant on the dip-stick (separated from the 20-50). The coolant/oil mixture is NOT milky, and has NO bubbles. Tyrone of Pontiac-Alley & I were scheduled to 1; change the MSD before the rain got worse, and 2; the coolant pressure test. After the MSD swap, the Buick didn't want to start (the Rochester's accelerator pump wasn't pumping fuel -- I called Bruno right away). At 1st we figured it was due to the new larger in-line fuel filter being bone-dry. Tyrone was able to get a Holley ... we had no spacer-plate. Tyrone is getting one at tomorrow's/weekend's Swap-Meet. IN THIS VIDEO I MENTION WHAT'S ON SCHEDULE ... MSD & COOLANT PRESSURE TEST. The coolant pressure test is on Monday after work ... I will know the result then. Last week's pressure test was postponed due to an emergency ... however, the Stage-1 hasn't be started since that day.





CDS 1987 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL "FISHTAIL SCARE!" lol 10-21-2012
Okay; I drove the Stage-1 to Pontiac-Alley today to replace the FAN RELAY switch that controls my twin DERAL electric fans. We did so ... the fans STILL REFUSE to engage WITHOUT being wired DIRECTLY into the BATTERY. I am off for the next 2-day, so that's my project; CHECKING THE WIRING/CONNECTIONS TO THE FAN RELAY BOX. I need new/good TIRES out back BADLY!!! All I do now is spin the tires just above 1300-RPM!!! I TOOK THE MOTOR TO 5000-RPM instead of my announced 3000-RPM ... by mistake. THANK GOD for the MSD-REV-LIMITER!!! LOL Tyrone suggested returning this week so he & I can figure this out. SO-FAR-SO-GOOD, Thank-God.
