welcome! do you think thats enough watts to make any sound??? lol
i've been thinking about lambo's for some time now, let us know how much and how easy they are to install. our 4ft wide doors are perfert for a lambo verticle door
145k is alot to start moding, how long have you had it? and is it up on maint.?
22's will have to go if you want performance, sorry but they are too heavy to turn quickly, and as you get more torque on the tranny its not good to have lots of edge weight, esp with a 96's non HD diff.
can we see some pics of the ride in the showroom?

22"s are awesome! Check my badass dubs!

Where is the video of the regal trying to drag race on huge wheels and then losing the axle/wheel right off the line?

Welcome. Even with the bigger rims there are a few things you can do to improve performance. Have a read through our Series II FAQ section. With performance mods, as long as you don't launch really hard off the line, you should be able to roll a little quicker on your 22"s without them falling off.
