Daily Driving Buick V-6 Turbo's 1979 - Present
Hey Guys and Gals,

Let's post up the current Buick status of your car or fleet of Buick powered cars. I'll start it off, running good except over 20 lbs boost, noticed fuel pressure log shows dropping pressure at WOT, new DW 301 fuel pump purchased from here in for sale section shipping Wednesday. Here is a link http://www.turbobuick.com/threads/looks-like-the-fuel-pump-has-about-had-it.446949/
Just want to say it's still fun after all these years to drive the old Buick turbo.

Hi Chuck,
I'm in the process of trying to get my 87 Ltd down into the low 11's. Managed to run a 11.55 this year down from a best of 12.1 in 2015. No real changes other than new 275/50 MT radial pro's, which seemed to put me in a better rpm range. Stock block (110k miles) I built trans myself with a Husek std kit and 9.5" LU. All the standard bolt on stuff like 3' DP, Razors kit, SLIC, TE60 Turbo. Car is 3800lbs with me, so I'm not sure if there's a low 11 in it or not with the TE60.

Only one way to find out, good 60' times are key.

Has anyone upgrading there fuel lines to the Racetronix teflon? I see full throttle speed has them on sale.

Chuck I have those lines on my car. Far as my current status; had fuel pump issues right before Cecil. Wiring in the tank burned up from excess voltage from the hotwire and stealth 340 pump. Located an upgraded racetronix intermediate harness, fixed it and broke down on the way there due to me pinching the return line putting the tank back in. Luckily got it corrected, changed the oil and made it to the track. Currently have a head stud leaking coolant that I need to address and a boost leash controller to install before spring.
 
Current status: Itching to run my car as soon as possible. Made a ton of changes to a largely stock 87 GN over the past year and a half. Upgrades: Walbro 340 pump with HW kit. Adjustable FPR, 3" DP, Ported plenum, ported intake with EGR riser ground and plugged, EGR delete, GN1 Super Extreme FMIC, Turbonetics 63/68 BB turbo, 60# injectors with TT chip, 3" LT1 with MAF conversion, Razor's single nozzle kit, built trans by Michaels with 3200 stall PTC converter, widened stock rear wheels to accommodate 275-60-15 MTs, Koni shocks all around, TA Performance rear cover, Scanmaster and a few little odds and ends.

Curious to see what kind of ETs I can expect.

Not so distant future plans: QA1 coil overs, upgraded rear control arms, HR Parts rear sway bar, headers and data logger.
 
couple upgrades to the 86 . trz ARB, strange dbl adjust , new alky pump

the wh1 is coming along . its for the most part complete and operational but needs some upgrades in the rear suspension for the track ..HR bar and single qa1 shocks from the 86 are going in .

the 87 ttop just needs turning up and replace some sensors , maybe install the dashlogger

I've had the '85 about two weeks before I deployed, washed it, parked it and covered it.
Just itching to get into it, got about a month left.
Totes and boxes full of parts from the stripped '84 wreck, just taking up space till I get home.
 
Wow Gregg spotting! Anyway cars are in the garage resting with their battery tenders! Not touching them til spring time! Too cold! GN needs the rear window taken out and re sealed! Went to take off the bent trim and trim was caulked to the window no clips! Window moves from body! Gonna take it out and redo the seal

Greg - wow - good to hear that you are still at it. Looks like you're gonna need a MUCH bigger garage :rolleyes: Hopefully will get to see your shiny paint in the spring :cool: ... and nice looking blue car, too!

My GN is sitting in the garage, battery quit/disconnected, TTA is sitting 2 bays over in the garage on the battery tender.
I am NOT a fan of winter (n)
 
Yeah it's kind of like spotting a Bigfoot! I hope to be around more this year, but I just seemed to have too much stuff to do. And yes, I do need a much bigger garage.
