HAHA totally kidding. i picked up the beater. A 1988 buick regal custom 111k miles on it, in pretty good shape. needs a cleaning,oil/trans/spark plug change. i pay $450 a year on insurance!!! thats what made me happy, and the fact $10-15 filled my gas tank up. heres some pics. this gives me a ton a time to save for the grand prix build. fully built trans/stage 3 heads/st2 turbo cam/67 trim turbo they gave me a total of $6375.00 so im getten there. well let me know what you guys think.

Had a 90 Regal custom years ago. Was a great car until the trans went. I miss it sometimes.

Sure, I'll give the ones out of my GTP. I won't even charge you. Just give me the engine from your Prix and we'll call it even.

Will the turbo even fit? I thought I read somewhere on clubgp that the T61 is the biggest turbo you can fit on a CT kit.

Ill also throw my 3.1 Lumina into the beater race mix.

67trim is the biggest the CT crossover will fit. it is not that much of a size diff by the naked eye.
kevin has 1 or 2 T67s running around with his kit. its the EVO wastegate that comes with the CT kit that wont be able to handle it.
go ball bearing .............matt likes a challenge :D





make sure to make it a down hill race, that way if one dies out there still all able to compete by dead weight

Ahh. I knew there was a size restriction. I just forgot what it was. I know someone was bitching cause they couldnt throw a T70 on their CT kit.
