BUICK - The "Grand National" & "GNX" Story Part 2 of 3
I don't like too many 80s cars, but this is my favorite BY FAR. It's the only car I allow to be included with the "brute force" muscle cars of the 60s and early 70s. I enjoyed working on them and driving them when I started as a tech at a Buick dealer in 1991, in Arlington TX. Too bad Pontiac and Olds didn't also make their own version of this the same way Buick made theirs.---Buick made a V6 from wacking 2 cylinders off their great V8, while letting the turbo and PERFECT computerized spark/fuel control "get back" the lost power of the 2 cylinders, AND retaining V6 fuel economy!--(these cars could get in the high 20s low 30s on the hwy). Since this is EXACTLY a Buick V8 with 2 cylinders wacked off, and since it is a 90 degree V (like a V8) unlike many V6s, the result is a nice even power curve that does not lack low-end. It does not have near the low-end "turbo lag" as many turbo POS's today that have to redline at 8500rpm before they make any power. In fact, in stock form these engines never need to see over 5000rpm.

1984 Buick 3.8 V-6 Idling & Start
This is an Old video I found from years ago. I am assuming the time stamp on the video is correct. This was taken with a VHS cam-corder. I wish I had video taped the car that it was in, a 1984 Pontiac GrandPrix, 3.8L V6 Buick engine 90,000 miles. I would have revved it, but it had really bad main & rod bearings that would hammer. The smoke is from a leaking valve pan gasket at the back of the engine, and the "ticking" noise you hear when I shut down the engine to restart it is the "Mixture Control Solenoid" inside the carb. You don't see to many of these around anymore so I figured I would post it, enjoy!
Buick Regal air intake
I am trying to find out if this is the way it should sound with the air intake installed.
