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!

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.

"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 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!!!





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.





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 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 (TA290-08H). lol UPDATES TO FOLLOW.





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 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.





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!

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim: "No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."





1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1, with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two, loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011 issue of HOT ROD Magazine.





My D&S Performance Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal's TCI Mega-Shifter Update #2. 7-13-2011
This video's purpose is to update regarding my TCI Mega-Shifter's installation scheduled for tomorrow at PONTIAC-ALLEY! I already have the "foam-board" ready for the template for the final "aluminum" plate that's to replace the factory shifter face plate. SO-FAR-SO-GOOD!!!
