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!
My D&S Performance Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal's TCI Mega-Shifter Update #6. 7-16-2011
This video was uploaded AFTER eating at Olive Garden ... from PONTIAC
ALLEY, located in Brooklyn, NY.
In this video, we discuss the shifter brackets missing (Tyrone hooked me up
from his parts supply), the installation of the PermaCool electric fan
"170-degree" thermostat, and turboCHARGING.
Tyrone tells me I need to "LEARN" how to use the TCI shifter.
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.
UPDATES to follow.
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.
Shifting a Megashifter 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Project
I thought we'd demonstrate how the B&M Megashifter works in regular and
ratchet shifting modes. We used our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am to demonstrate
just how well it functions. This is basically the same way that most
ratchet type shifters operate. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for
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.
"MID-11s-STEVE" with his 1987 TURBO BUICK REGAL at FLoyd Bennet Field's Muscle Car Show 6-9-2013
This video's purpose is to introduce a new toy belonging to "Mid-11s-Steve"
and to check out the DEVASTATING Muscle Cars, 1940-1960's Classics as well
as pure Muscle Car Classics!
I took photos of every car in the Show ... I will create a slideshow soon
displaying them appropriately. I apologize, as Steve's '87 turbo Regal BLEW ME AWAY; I "always" wanted one
Steve's 1987 turbocharged/Intercooled V6
bone-stock BEAUTIFUL Special-T Regal is IMMACULATE inside & out! I have
HONESTLY never seen a "g-body" Buick Regal of ANY for or fashion that looks
BETTER than this one ... hands-down.
I can't say any more regarding this "phenomenal" Buick than the owner did
in this video; however ... I "feel" Steve is going to do some TWEAKING as
we say in North Carolina, "Somewhere-Down-The-Line."
ENJOY YOUR NEW AMERICAN MUSCLE CAR, Steve.
By-The-Way, Steve ... you're going to need a "nickname" for your persona
with this BEAST. LOL. Maybe ... "turbo-6-Steve." The "Mid-11-Second-Steve" is for
the '86 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal you have. LOL
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
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 "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.
The Legend: Turbo Buicks
The Smoking Tire heads out to Fontana, CA for a drag strip meetup with the

'66 Buick Back From The Dead! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 5
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we raise a '66 Buick from the dead.
After spending 33 years sitting outside in the desert, the broken down
Buick Special is revived by David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD
and Rick Pewe of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine.
Rick's mother bought the car when it was near new and parked it when the
transmission failed in 1978. In 2011, the guys spent two and a half days
wrenching on the car, with the hopes of driving it home from Phoenix to Los
Angeles. Come along for the ride and see what happens!
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend

CDS Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal's 1st drive home from The Dyno-Shop!!! 1-15-2014
THIS BUICK ACCELERATES!!! I had the MSD rev-limiter to 4000-rpm with the
M/T Drag Radials ... and the "455" hauled! I was NOT on a highway, so the
most I could safely do was from dead-stop to @ 3500-rpm, and accelerate
from @ 2500-4000-rpm. The chassis and frame braces along with the new KYB
Shocks and the Mickey Thompson Drag Radials; I AM HAPPY!
