It blows my mind the power you can get out of these 6 cylinder motors! The owner Jerry takes us through everything he did to make this car what it is. Not just power but other tasteful mods to make it exactly what he wanted. And, this is one of 3 Buick Regals that Jerry owns so you gotta know he's a die hard fan.
Sit back and enjoy the ride!

huge improvement over the pos stock configuration. i had no idea that those 6cyl blocks could handle all that xtra power. GM must have made a mistake. ;-) it sounds like a Cummins.

Crazy how much power can be made from these 6’s

Why do all over weight guys have facial hair??? Do you think it hides the fact or???? I just don't get it...nice far though.
AutotopiaLA Hace un día
I’ll leave the comment alone other than it being a nice “far” which I think you meant car and yes, it’s a badass build here

I'd be afraid of breaking an axle and slamming into the wall at 100+ and ruining such a cool car.

That’s why I didn’t go hard on it even though he said I could. Respect

My face would hurt from smiling so much! Truthfully, mashing the pedal in that beast, would make me burst out in laughter from the speed.

It was a blast for sure and I never mashed it. Hit it good but out of respect I didn’t floor it

Is this the same V6 engine Buick used in Indy for their "stock block" category?
AutotopiaLA Hace un día
Good question. Check with Jerry on that. I honestly don’t know
Warpmine Hace 3 días
It's not just a v-6, it's a 12 valve V-6

Stupid question but why the owner of the car sounds like he has no idea about anything and what's into the car? Like "my friend did it?"
AutotopiaLA Hace un día
He was a bit nervous on camera. He knows every aspect of this build
roknroy1 Hace 4 días
hate the v6 sound, love the car
AutotopiaLA Hace un día
Not the best tone but the pull makes up for it quickly
Advanced Chiropractic
Ruined the car
AutotopiaLA Hace un día
The owner would say otherwise
Lycanthropic Paranoia
Finally an owner that sup's it up and keeps the v6 in it. Thats the way to go! If you want a v8, get a v8 car...

All the modifications and you don’t race it at all? You don’t drag race at the track so I’m pretty sure you don’t street race either. Waste

One of my best friends traded his 1986 924 Porsche for a new 1987 Buick Grand National ,at a small dealership in Prestonsburg Ky. Called Music Carter Hughes. He burnt them up . They gave him $6,000 in boot . He was an idiot though. In the deal ,because his girlfriend ," which is my first cousin, " that he is still married to . Well she wanted T tops ,yes my friends you see where this is heading. He had them get a professional place to actually install T tops in this Grand National coupe . I.told bim Doug man you are going to ruin the rigidity as well as the future value of this car . He still done it. Anyway bone stock this thing was quick as shit . I had a 1987 Porache 911 turbo ,and in a quarter mile ,I could only beat him by a few seconds. I know that's an eternity In a quarter ,but at the time the 930 .cost me 53,600 a d the GN turned out to cost him about 18,000 considering the burn he gave the dealership lol. . I had the chance to buy a brand new 1987 ,in 1987 GNX ,from Glenn Buick in Lexington Ky ,for 28500 and my stupid ass passed o. It.

It's like a 80's Chevy V8 missing 2 cylinders. A 350 IROC Z TPI w a turbo is a monster.

Only stupid people think you have to have a v8 to be fast. This is why I bought a new 2016 F165. Now people who don't know about me or my channel are wondering. What in the Bi-Bull-sht is he talking about? A F165 is a 2015 or newer F150 with the 2.7 v6 ecoboost (165 cuin) engine.
AutotopiaLA Hace 5 días
You can make from anything these days even little 4 cylinders with boost
So it's not actually 900HP WTF?? If you are going to drive the car, then get in there DRIVE it, otherwise let the owner drive and see if it'll turn a wheel.
AutotopiaLA Hace 5 días
Obviously you don’t spend much time taking on the liability of other people’s vehicles. I do it daily and enjoy driving them but I don’t pretend like it’s mine. I learned this thing when I was a kid called respect

That it does. And these can be built to have more than enough HP as seen here

there were only like 550 of these made and that was it, nobody bought them because all the extras that made it grand national were a little over 10 grand.

I know a guy who wrecked a GN doing 120 mph in 1989 and lived, he's actually mentally handicapped because of it extremely, but he's alive and still says if he were driving a mustang he wouldn't have even hit 120 and it woulda killed him..still has a sense of humor! He is called Doobie..he has never been back in a GN as they're quite rare now but i'd love to get him a ride in one.
