10.99 buick run daily driver

This is my daily driver 1987 Buick Regal T. 3.8L turbocharged, white version of a Grand National. Stock block with ported Champion iron heads, slightly modified turbo, injectors and downpipe. Running on 93 octane pump gas at the track, this 10.99 was backed up by 5 more 10 second runs with a best of 10.81 @ 124 MPH. Yes it has A/C and gets 22 MPG on the highway.

Twin 74mm Turbo Notch Mustang vs T-Type (snaps anti-roll bar on launch)
Twin 74mm Mustang Notch lines up with an 8 second T-Type. Unfortunately they didn't get a clean run since you can see the t-type launches so hard it snaps the thick anti-roll bar on the car. You can see the body torque hard then come down. Track was hookin' that day!!

87 Turbo Buick 11.42/121mph pass
June 26, 2009 - Baseline testing for the next upgrade. Funny part is Mustang before me forgets to close his hood. Not so funny as my tires cool down waiting for him to get his act together. That rattling noise after launch is a lesson learned on how much the tranny actually moves under load and how much clearance to maintain from rotating parts...oops.

1986 Buick Grand National Turbo
My Buick Grand National running 12s with just a few things done to it. During these days, had the stock turbo running 20psi, completely stock engine, just had put alcohol injection on it, stock torque converter....it ran pretty good for what was done to it. Now it is a complete different animal!
