Most of the regulars here have seen the build thread and have helped me get this thing to where it is. (a reliable daily driver). https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ew-body%2Ecom%2Findex%2Ephp%3F%2Ftopic%2F55358-T-Unit%27s-Boosted-Buick%2E-AKA-The-Granny-Slapper&share_tid=55358&share_fid=5731&share_type=t //////////
I bought the car just over a year ago. Body was in amazing shape for a northern car. Still has rockers, rear towers aren't blown to hell, and underside was pretty clean.////////
Immediately I started to make it my own. Got a set of nice headlights for it the first week, the second week a deer ran into the passenger side and blew one out. A week later the battery took a dump, a week later the second deer hit it, then the wife backed into it, then mechanical troubles galore.//////////
Well, a year later I've finally got it to the point where it's been on the road consistently for months (two weeks was the average before now). There's just a few little things to tie up and everything will be right with it finally. But, it has just run me ragged and I have officially lost the drive to tie this one up. I have the money to do it, I have access to the parts, and I just don't have the ambition anymore. It's time for this car to move on to someone who can finish up the last few little things and thoroughly enjoy it for the nice car that it is, and not wonder what's going to go out on it next, Everytime I get in the seat.//////////
With that said, here's the rundown.
2000 Buick Regal GS. Supercharged L67, 4t65eHD auto, heated leather, monsoon stereo, full folding rear seat, power sunroof. It's loaded. 245,640 on the recently repaired odometer/DIC./////////
Has two sets of wheels. One is a very nice set off of a Rendezvous. Currently wearing Firestone winterforces. The second set are the factory chromies, typical inner chrome peeling but still solid. I have about 17 different summer tires to choose from that should realistically go on the Rendezvous wheels. And the winterforces on the chromies. Also have a set of locking smoked chrome lugs for the nice wheels and the stock ones for the chromes. Sensors are on the chromes. Nice wheels don't have any so the light is on. I may just swap all the tires around onto the correct wheels if time passes////////
Stuff I have done to it - ////
Interstate battery-March '17//// Gentex rearview mirror//////LIMGs - Fel-Pro/// oil pan - ZZP with Fel-Pro gasket//// water pump, failsafe thermostat, and coolant flush/////serpentine and supercharger belts and an idler pulley////// poly core support side dog bone bushings and new rubber bushings for engine side///// short dog bones will go with the car////// stainless fuel lines with new filter from classic tube. New plastic lines and fittings from Hardline back to tank. Also including a new fuel rail setup that's just chilling on my shelf ///// Rear brake lines have been replaced. The pain in the ass one is nicop (had to pay a shop to do it due to time constraints) and the other is pre bent stainless. The car will come with the rest of the pre bent stainless stuff I got from classic tube.///// LEDs in the cluster and rear interior lights. I think I did the trunk one too./////// Delco iridium plugs and top shelf AutoZoneÂ¿? Wires.///////Monroe quick struts out back//////valve cover gaskets - Fel-Pro////EGR blocked off - throws code////// cluster resistors soldered back on, didn't have any to replace them with at the time////////
As it stands now, the car runs and drives well. But it does need a couple things.////// Trailing arms in back need replaced. It wiggles around in the snow and ice as the suspension loads and unloads with traction loss and such////////resonator is blown out, down pipe sounds like it's leaking at the shielded flex section so it occasionally runs funny and it's loud as hell////////rear windows do not operate and it's been low on my priority list to track down the issue////// a/c doesn't work. Likely just needs a recharge since it slowly died off last summer.//////// Drivers side seat heater is in/op. Creature comfort I was not terribly concerned about//////tint is garbage. I was gonna save this for the last thing I did to make it look nice again but I haven't fixed everything yet so it never got done/////
More updates will come as I find more stuff I've done. Feel free to pm me for contact info. I can get any pics you may want or videos and answer any questions you might have. Name is Tyler, thanks for your time.
