1986 Buick Regal T-type 235hp(net)

Stock they ran 14.30@98.4 (Hot Rod 5/86)

Slightly Modified they run 12.20's@110 (stock engine, turbo, trans, rearend, etc.)

With a little larger, stock appearing Turbo, larger fuel injectors and a little know how, 11.5's @ 118 mph are easy. Can low 11's be far away?


Yes, it ran 11.53 and 118.31 mph on radials through this airbox (shown in my '86 GN)
