DRW / Buick V6 Alky v3.2 20L video test
My first in-car video. Preliminary tuneup with a new combination. First
video since the change to the Borg Warner Airwerks S510/91mm turbo. Still chipping away at the initial spooling
problem. Slowly, but surely making progress, though.
Have you had your daily trip down the track yet? Kick back and get out your

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!

The Story of this car..
Brought out storage,in year 2000

people back then was the camshaft manufactors fault ,the cams metal was
flawed,the 90's SP cams

spend over $30,000 in cash an parts totaling over 3 years
I call Cal Hartline,He recommeds Lamotta performance
The new motor from KDK goes striaght on the Dyno an BOOM!! headgasket
launches as all the times before
I asked Jake at Lamotta if he can fix it, an add GNX style dash an new Intercooler,6 months later
motors done at Heartbeat racing engines,Even though Lamottoa dropped my
motor to him for whatever reason i had to go pick it up.(that cost the

Moral to this build,Try your Hardest to Have one All-in-One shop work on
your car,Or you'll get the Third person run around,(example), Oh i'll take
your car an your money,but its the machist fault or part builders fault why
nothing works,pay us, blame them...
First time you here that....Run!!!
Get all work in Writing,You might need it later
Grand National and GNX History (part 3 of 3)
Buick quietly re-entered the super car wars in the late eighties with a turbocharged 3.8 liter V6 engine in an all
black Regal. The car was so outrageously fast that its now among the most
collectible cars of all time.
