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!!!





PONTIAC ALLEY with "T.K."/ Buick 455 Stage-1 Regal TCI Shifter Update #8. 7-16-2011
The TCI shifter looks DEVASTATING!!! Tyrone did a perfect install ... considering there were parts MISSING ... apparently Giovanni's shop "mis-placed" them. After the "TCI" became "a-walk-in-the-park-to-me," I decided to raise the "idle" on the Holley750 by 100-rpm. The Stage-1 refused to turn over! The starter was NOT engaging. I immediately "knew" it had to be the orange-thinner-gauge wire I used on the starter ... instead of the THICKER GAUGED RED WIRE I was supposed to use. This video shows that thin/incorrect wire "melted" onto the TA Exhaust header tube. Tomorrow after work ... I am correcting this. I have the correct wire now. The aluminum plate for the TCI shifter column will be purchased next weekend ... and I will then be able to mount the (Park, Reverse, etc) shifter plate securely. NEXT-STOP; BRAND-NEW HOLLEY 850-CFM from Holley.com!!!!!





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 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!
