RCR recently uploaded this video of the valiant, final bout from this fourth-gen Buick Regal GS. Thanks to the work of Sloppy Mechanics, this Regal got take some final breaths with some assistance from a turbocharger and some nitrous oxide.
Our favorite lines were, “Well what did it make?” and “Fire, what more do you want!” And what do you do when a car catches fire during a dyno run? Pour beer on it, of course. Our hardy laughter turned into ooh’s and ahh’s when we saw that the Regal had actually put out 310 wheel-horsepower for the run, looks like the turbocharger was impeding its performance.
“‘Put ice in the turbocharger,’ they said, ‘it’ll be fun,’ they said.”
Don’t feel too bad for the ol’ Buick, it served for 280,000 miles and was on its way to the junkyard for retirement anyways. With that said, we know you guys are going to love this one, enjoy.
