Read below for car descriptions!
This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences with them.
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny. No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!
Z34 - Intake and chip. Stock at the time of the Iroc-Z race.
SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races in this Video)
vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track. Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
Vs stock G8. Regal: same mods as above
11.9 @ 112 in the 1/4 on slicks with some c16 race gas mixed in, m90 blower (stock)
Vs full bolt on, gears, tuned 2011 Mustang v6. Regal: TVS swap with stock TVS pulley. 7psi of Boost.
vs full bolt on, 3.55 gears, tuned 1998 Cobra. Regal: same setup as vs the 2011 v6
Vs 330whp low 12 second Vortech supercharged 2002 Mustang GT. Regal: TVS swap + 2.8'' pulley (14psi) and ethanol.
374whp with same mods as vs the blown GT
As always the Regal had stock heads and never had an Intercooler!
Thanks for all the comments!

Last Drive in my 1999 Buick Regal GS [Part 1 of 2]
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxzX1mqCD6g
My first car was a 1999 Regal GS. Powered by a supercharged 3.8L V6, the Regal was capable of speeds that Buick's target audience don't know exist. It had 240 horsepower and 280 ft-lbs of torque. With an obscenely flat torque curve that peaks at 2400 rpm, off the line it was one mean burgundy machine. Only a slight twitch of my leg transformed the Regal from a cloud nine geriatric ride to an angry supercharged rhinocerous- with an appetite for Japanese cars with oversized spoilers, soup-can Exhausts, and non-functional hood scoops.
A car that defined the term 'sleeper', the Regal would particularly enjoy courting Honda Preludes, Civic Si's, or Mitsubishi Eclipses. After luring its prey into what initially appears like an opportune chance to exhibit their sweet stickers, the Regal would spring its trap. Its Eaton M90 Supercharger would be unleashed, packing the six cylinders with 27.4 psi of Boost; meanwhile, the drivetrain would give its best effort toward the futile endeavor of maintaining traction as the Regal would rocket past its imported competition. Such defeats would be expected to leave the Honda driver in a state of confusion, so fortunately the margin of victory would allow enough time for him to close his mouth and consider the embarrassment at exactly how much he spent on his unpainted body kit.
I never lost a race in that car. Except when the opponent had blue and red lights on top.
The GS was commonly seen around Spartanburg, SC demonstrating her artistic side. One of her oft-repeated performances was a painting of twin streaks of Michelin residue against a backdrop of smoky clouds of rubber-based particulate matter, set to the tune of a high-pitched whine eminating from twin helical screws.
Anyway, all good things must come to an end. I was graduating high school, and moving on to college. My father decided to trade it in, and no, I won't sully the Regal's good name by revealing what it was traded in for.
Plain and simple: this video presents my final drive in the Regal GS. Man, I loved that car.
Tom's Turbo Garage: Buick Grand National Street & Strip Upgrades - Part 3
In this episode, we focus on making some good old turbocharged horsepower on my 1987 Buick Grand National. We also take a trip back to 1987 to look at performance recipes back then.
This is part of a multi-part series where we're making a host of modifications to this classic American muscle car to improve its performance on the street and strip. Thank you for watching and subscribing!

'98 Regal GS 0-70 MPH (5.7 sec 0-60)
Worked out a few more kinks with the car.. last video I had did 0-60 in 6.6 seconds, dropped that down to 5.7. Full street trim, half tank of gas. 3.4" pulley, 180 degree t-stat, FWI, shitty pacesetter headers (never buy them ever), DHP 1.5, 3.29 gears, 9.4:1 CR
1987 Buick Grand National VS 2010 V6 Chevy Camaro 1/4 Mile run 2010
Been working on my GN with my friends for the past two years and decided to give her a run for the first time at a local cruise night. Not being at the track in years I didn't know where to stage and didn't have time to build Boost...but 12.1 in 1/4 is a good start. It's a 1987 Buick Grand National with 26k original miles with stock motor and a few bolt on. The paint and interior are all stock.
Smokin Camaro: Hennessey HPE550 Supercharged Chevy Camaro SS
FOR FULL HENNESSEY ARTICLE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Automotive lust in America means blown Camaros. You know, like the red '69s on every cover of Car Craft. A big BDS 10-71 Supercharger sticking through the hood and massive M/T drag slicks under tubs in back. Let the rest of the world dream of Ferraris, Lamborghinis and dinky little British two-seaters. In this country speed doesn't look like that.
It looks like this.
This is the Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) "HPE550" supercharged 2010 Camaro SS. That's right, it's a blown Camaro. The first blown 2010 Chevy Camaro. And that makes it the very newest version of a true American icon. Ranks right up there with the Beach Boys, buckets of deep fried chicken and our incomprehensible Internal Revenue Code.
Be proud of it. We Americans invented the greatest car ever: The loud, tire-smoking, V8-powered, front-engine, rear-wheel-drive muscle machine. And we should celebrate the accomplishment just as John Hennessey is, by building more.
