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!
"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????
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
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
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.

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.
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!

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
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
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 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
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!!!
CDS 1987 STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL DYNO-SHOP Update#1 6-6-2013
Ralph & John's Dyno
Shop is a GODSEND!!!
This video is self-explanatory ... just listen to Ralph.
Joey is a "BAAAAD-MAN lol."
He suggested (jokingly) taking my Buick 455 V8 to 7000+RPM!!! Joey also
stated that my Stage-1 makes almost no vacuum because of the big camshaft
UPDATES TO FOLLOW.
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
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.
Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
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!!!!
