    Hot Rod Regal | General Hot Rod Musings

    Hello everybody,
    Been awhile since I posted, but here is why...
    I have been working on my Buick Regal LS swap and have made some visible progress.
    I wanted to send out my thanks to everyone here that contributes and provides knowledgeable and accurate information concerning the LS platform. LS1.com has been my premiere source for information for what works and what doesn't!
    I hope that I can contribute a little bit of knowledge and give back as well. The way I see it, the more of us out there the better!

    This is my website of the progress I have made. Hope you all enjoy and if you have any questions, I will try to answer the best I can.

    Money is something you can make more of every day. I try not to think about what I spend on a project. As long as I am enjoying the work and looking forward to the finished restoration, it's all good.

    very true! Actually, I am starting to gain some attention from some major aftermarket companies I am going to have more posts on the website soon, keep checking back, or RSS it... I just purchased some 6p baer Pro+brakes that are HUGE!

    It's a clean build and appears deserving of attention. Keep up the good work.

    Lots of work to perform before I update the build site.

    Hello Again,
    The HotRodRegal.com website is updated with Fuel System pics and part #'s. I was waiting on this post for a couple reasons, but I can proudly say though this fuel system is published in a soon to be released Gm G-body Performance Project book (by Joe Hinds). The book is on pre-order sale on Amazon.com.
    The great thing about this fuel system is it is very easy to make and the building procedures / principles and part #'s called out can be used on any LS swap.

    I also have been working on the engine wiring. It will be later this year that I have it posted, but its definitely one to check out! I can not say the product that is used at this time, nor can I go into much detail about it, but the end result is very clean and one of the easiest systems to update on the market! As you can guess, its not a GM computer...

    Also in upcoming posts, the brake system has been redone! I know that the current brakes on the website are like new and I didn't even use them on the street, BUT.... its going to have a lot of WOW factor!!

    Please be patient as I update when I can between work, overtime, aviation hobbies, and working on the car!
    Thanks for checking it out!
    -Matt

    Thank you for the support Jeff. I'm still having fun with it... so expect it to keep going, or at least as long as the overtime is still coming my way $$$

    Just so everyone knows, I did update again with my latest purchase... POWERMASTER parts... and they are shiny!!!

    March has been a good month for the project... Got a transmission out for rebuild right now also! More to come on that one

    It is an awesome build! BTW -- I picked up something a couple of weeks ago that you may be somewhat familiar with: 1987 Buick Regal Turbo

    Hey thanks for the nice comments guys! It was just an idea on the alt. wire and it worked pretty good.
    I re-engineered the brake/suspension package recently, the pics are up on my website. All you g-body autocross guys may find it interesting! Hot Rod Regal | General Hot Rod Musings

    I gotta say Marc Savitske knows his craft...check out SCandC.com (his website) while you are at it. The solution is a bit pricey, but making a G-body with near zero bumpsteer is an interesting concept. I guess I will see if it really works

    Enjoy G-body & LS fans!

    Wow. What a difference! I used a plastic welder to fix the lower mounting tab on our Regal's fan shroud. Never knew you could do actual "bodywork" with one.
