umm I only saw tail-lights, not very conclusive. Also it might not be a good idea to post a kill in here from an SRT-4 against a buick. hehe :D

Since u guys are such big SRT fans ;) i thought i would post this SRT kill 4 you guys to see. Both the Regal and SRT are modded slightly. BTW this isn't my Regal. Oh yeah the SRT was spiking about 20psi's too..... :p
On to the clip!

Those regals make nice sleepers. Who'd expect to get beaten by a 4-door luxury car.

BTW: After watching that video, I now know what it looks like when you drive drunk... :eek:

Look at the date on the video, I'm sure it's an april fools joke.
Why a joke since its a Buick? ;) Sorry man no joke. :)

Redline racer a Buick Regal GS,GSE or GSX is basically the same exact car as a Grand Prix GTP. 240hp and 280ftlbs stock. The Regal guy had some exhaust work,3.4" blower pulley,fenderwell intake,PCM,PEM's and the little supporting mods and the SRT guy was running a stage 1 setup with a boost contoller set at like 20 psi's.
Just wanted to post the clip since you guys and the SRT guys seem to be at eachothers throats all the time :D Thought a 13 second 4 door grandpa car beating a sport compact icon would make you guys feel better. I have the same mods the guy in the video does on my Regal so i have been waiting for an SRT kill myself. :cool:

I really like those Regals, tried to talk my parents into getting one, but they choose the SUV thingy, the uh... Rendevous. They have a nice, thick, older muscle car build to them.

That was like a 2000ish supercharged Regal. Same as the last gen GranPrixs.

Alright, that makes more sense...but I wouldn't expect a supercharged regal to win . Can they really get down to the 13's? I have never seen any that could...but that doesn't mean it isn't possible.

That's just because no one buys one and mods the hell outta it! We've all heard/seen some real fast GranPrixs and it's the exact same car. I have no doubt that one can get into the 13's. The last Buick Grand National, which is what the Gps and the Buicks are loosely based off of, was a monster.

Getting into the 13's will only usually take under $500 worth of mods. ;)
A Regal GS is the same thing as a GTP.....a Regal weighs more than a 2 door GTP but also weighs less than a 4door GTP so there are no major weights disadvantages. My Regal ran a 14.7 bone stock and now i have 3.4" pulley,fenderwell intake,ubend&res delete,2 heat ranges colder plugs,180* tstat,hot ground kit(whoopty do) and some good sticky tires. 13's are almost here. :cool: Was gonna get a GTP but i thought a Regal would make a much better sleeper. Take a look at some of the other people on regalgs.org and there are alot of them in the 12's also and a few in the 11's. 13's are no trouble for the Regal especially if one learns how to launch all the torque :D

As a previous owner of a m90'd w body... I would have to say either that SRT driver can't drive his car or you dont have a complete list of his mods..... or the SRT driver isn't modded at all. With a 3.4 pulley and supporting mods a m90'd Wbod would be a match for a stock SRT, not one with Stage I and the boost cranked up.


I lvoe those regals. A guy in the local GP club has one thats a total sleeper... probably runs 12's with all of his mods. He pissed off quite a few mustang owners at the track.

Loosely, as in they happen to have the same name. Big difference between those Turbo T's and GN's and that GS (or whatever it was.)
I am however surprised, I didn't think they could run like that...but I'll take an '86 or 87 any day of the week.

I have a 98 Regal GS and it runs high 12's here are my mods: CAI with S&B Big Mouth Power Filter, Custom Tuned PCM, Intense MPS 2.9" pulley, 180 stat, TOG 3" downpipe, 3" custom exhaust with DynoMax Super Turbo muffler, SLP 1.8 Roller Rockers, ZZP Stage 2 HVTB, TOG headers, Polly Motor mounts, Throttlebody Spacer, ZZP alt and Water Pump Underdrive pulleys. ZZP SS I/C, 42.5# Injectors. there are people running low 11's in regals and low 10's in Grand Prixs. there is even a N/A Grand Prix that runs high 12's.

IMO, the Regal GS's are THE ultimate sleepers! I plan on getting one as my DD after college (while my g/f goes with either a Sky or IRL for her "fun" car, hehe. It'll be some fun races.) But yes, NO ONE expects to have these Gramps-mobiles hang with them, let alone beat them.
