Wow, good job, guys. That thing sounds like absolute evil! It's all growling and snorting like you just woke her up from a long hibernation. Go and feed her a Honda already, will ya?!!

Dave...

I might need to know what RPM you got that idling at. May need to turn mine down a bit for the lope.

Keep up the great work guys. It's doing great and Corey has given me some needed info on a trans swap for another member here.

Idle is 850 in P/N, 825 in gear... my old roommate that has an S1x that I installed in '06 said he finally liked his around 830, so I used these as a starting point.

Just took it for a "drive" down the alley about 2 blocks & back, to manually shift 1-2-3 up as it got to ~25mph calmly. Then backed in a driveway & returned in Drive, having it get up to 3rd automatically before having to slow down to park it. The last couple quarts seemed to make the tranny happy for this, and the new power steering pump is now full, so all noises (aside from typical IAC valve scratching & of course the open exhaust) are gone.

If you have any further tranny questions, let me know. I have a full collection of various HD parts swapping pictures spread throughout the web, and lots of different gear ratio information from 3100-3400-3800-3800sc-etc cars with 4t60/65's. (double-checking that info saved me from having to swap flexplates last week before install)

As mentioned, we're doing a budget exhaust for now, but it'll be decent enough for now. Stock piping from the car will be re-used to save work/cost...



I've removed all the components thus far, in preparation for new items. A resonator from a buddy's '04 GS that will go up front, with a 2.5" pipe to the d/p flange ahead of that. Some new Thrush mufflers in the back, and hopefully I can straighten out the tip sections without much hassle, and just polish them up.

I'm interested in a cash bribe to stay quiet. read

I think your Riv would have been faster than a good majority based on the build up.

We definitely tried looking for another Riv for a low price, but with that you run into more & more worn-out cars. There's a couple locally, but they're also in conditions that would require near-immediate maintenance (not being driven daily causes alot of premature corrossion, etc).

This gold Regal has a solid body, nice interior (though it needs a tornado to go through it when it gets home), good tires to last him about a year, and most importantly for me: a 98+ 3800 setup with W-body mounts... to make current & future work a breeze.

It was gonna be fun to have the Riv 100% in another week or so, but the money it was costing him to replace all the things outside the engine bay needed to get it on the road, just kept adding up. No doubt it was on track to be in the hunt for fastest non-turbo Riv, if he ended up buying headers & I/C later on... but now he can save for those mods in the fall, and put it towards the "new" car for next season.

I understand the attraction you guys have to the appearance to Riv's, because they're aggressive-looking in their own way, and perhaps deserved a better drivetrain under then when they were designed (something factory RWD like the Mark 8's and such in the same genre). I'm not against helping a future member modding a Riv, but this specific project simply required too much extra dicking around & spending money in extra places that took away from the project overall.

We'll be sure to make you guys proud, as Corey gets oing with the fresher, smaller Buick in a week or two. All the hard parts have been done, and all this swap will require is extending/converting the MAP harness again, and changing out fuel lines if they don't line up (coin flip on most top-swap setups). The whole new setup is dropping in, as this car is coming to us with a bad rod knock & sparkly pretty oil. Only change will probably be re-painting the rails/valve cover accents with a light gold instead of red, although red will still be an accent for the plug wires and air filter.

But now you'll have a 4 doors! JK, I think you're going to like the Regal. If all you want is to go fast, it makes sense.

I hope it's black... the color I think Regals look best. And it would be cool if an LS.
