I'm new to the riv game. So far I have 180 t-stat, WAI that will soon be a FWI, custom grill, de-badged but the "R" on the trunk, and boost/vacuum gauge with 140k
I love when people ask what kind of car is that, and there jaw drops when i tell them its a Buick

my future mods are to get the car around 300hp
have someone custom me bumpers for front and rear with black deep dished 18s with a white lip

I hope I see you driving around. I'm also from Mass.

If your friends find themselves loving your car, I will eventually be looking for a new home for my 78k Riv.

About a month late- welcome. So you are going to run the 3.5 on tstat and a FWI. What plugs will you be running? Any exhaust mods in the future? Car looks good. I love white.

Had this installed the new crank position sensor and brakes upgrade. need to put the rear links in and strut brace. love the handling difference the links made. highly recommended and don't hurt the wallet

Yeah those poly endlinks and sway bar bushings are fantastic. Definitely one of the best handling mods for the $$.

My lazy man FWI, i couldn't get the 4" coupler over the the pvc to the throttle body so i left the stock half and attached the pvc from there. works and love it none the less. throttle response is much sharper.
(little dirty i might clean it this week)

finally got tired of how quite the cars exhaust was. So i went to road runner and the installed 2 thrush turbo muffler in the place of my stock ones for $100. It pops a little bit but isn't loud or raspy at all (just the cellphone quality makes it seem raspy), just enough rumble to let u know this car has nutz lol.

while it was in the air discovered there is no u bend just downpipe into cat. so that one less thing i have to worry about.
