ran my buddies regal

haha, we were comin back from lunch, and we line up at a stop light. he is driving a 2000 or so bne stock buick regal (his mom's) with him and one other guy in it.

I have my truck with me and 2 other guys. it s 95 5 speed 4x4 with 4.10's 6637 filter, 10k mod, and the exhaust chopped off the downpipe, and sittin in the bed LOL

light goes green, and I dont launch it hard, but still jump about half a length ahead. he starts pullin up next to me, and I am bangin away at the gears. his bumper gets up to about my fender, then creeps up to about the front of my tire by the time we hit 80 MPH.

so, I guess my truck aint too slow huh? 3 guys in it, and still ran on a healthy 3.8L regal

I wonder what it would run in the 1/4...

This period held the fastest Buick since the days of the Grand National, the Buick Regal GS. This car was now supercharged instead of turbocharged and produced a very respectable 240 hp (180 kW) and 280 lbft (380 Nm) of torque. It has gained a reputation amongst those who know automobiles as a 'sleeper', or a car that performs better than one would expect from its looks. When introduced in 1997, Buick advertised the Regal as the "car for the supercharged family". Buick also released two other model types, the LSE and the GSE. The LSE stayed with the 200 hp (150 kW) engine with upgrades and the GSE stayed with the 240 hp (180 kW) supercharged engine with upgrades. Also, in 2000 Buick came out with a concept GNX that had an intercooled 3.8 L, but was supercharged rather than turbocharged. It had 300 hp (220 kW) unlike the original that had 276 hp (206 kW).

[edit] Engines
1997-2004 3.8 L Series II V6
1997-2004 3.8 L Series II supercharged V6
[edit] Regal LS and GS performance

The 3800 Series II L67 Supercharged engine in a 1998 GS.The Regal LS from the factory had a 1/4 mile (~400 m) elapsed time (ET) of 15.8 seconds and could do 0-60 mph in under 8 seconds. The supercharged Regal GS had a 1/4 mile ET of 14.7 seconds, and acceleration to 60 mph (100 km/h) from a dead stop took only 6.6 seconds.[3] The Regal GS, equipped with the supercharged 3.8 liter V6 engine (L67 produced 240 hp (180 kW) & 280 ftlbf (380 Nm) of torque. The Regal GS's PCM has programming that activates torque management to reduce wheel spin at launch.


and isn't the weight around 3,400 lbs??? which would be around the same as a LS1.... so the if both cars weigh around the same amount and well the LS1 makes more power... mmmmm lets think about this...

yup I beleive that one... your right 350hp at the crank sucks.... and when you can get a stock 3rd Gen F-body in the 12's.... yup your right that sucks.... ooo and your lovely 305tbi is around 165-hp yup that will win... and here is more for ya...

I'm sure it isn't the same year as the Bronco but chew on this for a bit.... and you can't forget the weight of the Bronco either...



The Bronco sold well in its first year (23,776 units produced[2]) and then remained in second place after the CJ-5[3] until the advent of the full-sized Chevrolet Blazer in 1969. Lacking a dedicated small SUV platform, the Blazer was based on their existing full size pickup which was a larger and more powerful vehicle, offering greater luxury, comfort and space. The longer option list included an automatic transmission and power steering, and thus had broader appeal. Ford countered by enlarging the optional V8 engine from 289 cu in (4.7 L) and 200 hp (150 kW) to 302 cu in (4.9 L) and 205 hp (153 kW), but this still could not match the Blazer's optional 350 cu in (5.7 L) and 255 hp (190 kW) (horsepower numbers are before horsepower ratings changed in the early to mid 70s. A 255hp engine would have a horsepower rating of roughly 170 by today's standards.)

With a smaller Bronco and fuel economy in mind, Ford offered a 300 cu in (4.9 L) straight six as the base engine. Although this engine came with more torque than the 302 cu in (4.9 L) V8 and comparable to the 351 cu in (5.8 L) V8 (until the High Output model), the engine was limited by a 1-bbl carburetor and restrictive single-out exhaust manifolds. Electronic emissions equipment added in 1984 further restricted the power of the inline six. Ford used up their remaining stock of 351M engines before switching over to the 351W in mid-model year 1982. A "High Output" version of the 351W became an option in 1984 and continued into the 1987 model year. Output was 210 hp (157 kW) at 4000 rpm vs the standard 2-bbl 351W which made 156 hp (116 kW) at 4000 rpm.[7] The 302 was the first engine to receive electronic fuel-injection, starting in the 1985 model year

umm....I think you are confusing 3rd gens with 4th gens. any stock 3rd gen camaro that breaks 15's is having a REALLY good day

3rd gens = 82-92 and NEVER had anywhere near 350 crank horsepower.

4th gens had lt1's and ls1's. where the lt1's made 275 crank, and from 98-02 had ls1's and made about 350 crank stock.

trust me....I sold my 95 trans am for this truck I know a LOT about those cars.


and as far as the race between the 351 1996 bronco and the 1989 305 c.i. camaro....I was in the passenger seat of the camaro. we will film it next time, its pretty funny. both are loud and slow LOL
