Ck pefromance Trans
3” Chromoly Driveshaft with 1350 U-Joints, Yolk and Input shaft.
Rear has a girdle, Auburn Posi, 31 spline moser axles, C-Clip eliminators,
and extended wheel studs with 3.42 gears.
Stock front suspension. Rear has air bags in both shocks with fill ports on the underside of the rear bumper.
Rear has adjustable upper control arms, extended lowers, and HR Parts N Stuff anti Roll bar.

Decided to keep the exteneed studs, at some point I plan to build a motor for it. For now just enjoying being back in a turbo buick again
and fixing all the little stuff, Stock radio repair and aux port are next so we can use Bluetooth and keep the stock look.
I am already tired of explaining what the car is though lol,

My car had no rear speakers
Added retrosound 4x10 speakers, Bought a set of used Gbody speaker baskets on ebay had to modify them to get them to fit. Just used tin snips and some electrical tape.
They sound ok but my radio is shot. Just sent my radio out to get fitted with an aux port and have it repaired

Was having an issue getting my astroroof to close flush with the top of the roof after replacing the seal.
Installed the Richard Clark Garage proraceeng.com window turbo and put a thin layer of wax on the seal. So far it seems to be working pretty well, Going to water test it later today.
Any way here is my experience installing the RCG Window Turbo one of the easiest things I have done and the instructions are excellent. I just figured I would share my experience
for anyone thinking of doing the window turbo to see what it entails.


-First took down the cover under the dash. (2 7 mm screws and 1 10 mm bolt had to be undone )
-Then pulled the power window fuse out of the fuse box
- Next installed the ground to a bracket right above the hood release.
-Then installed the original power window fuse into the socket on the window turbo wire
-Plugged in the box to the power window spot in the fuse box
-Tested it then mounted the box to a bracket right above the gas pedal using zip ties and put it the cover back on.

Thnx to Brian Gbodyparts for the advice.
