Sf turbo vs buick regal grand national

I gotta didn't I!!! Ok running at 30mph @ on small 2 sided road, when a BRG pulls in front of me. I just waited.... A lot of blue smoke coming from the exhaust. So the guy hits it, I do to!! And the SF kept up with it! Again the GN WAS SMOKING PRETTY BAD!! But I know he was surprised because at 90mph he back off and I could still read his plates " TOFAST"...... Not today!

GN runs low 14's stock. this one must have had some engine issues as you pointed out.

Sounds more like Buick Roadmaster or Electra , I sometimes confuse those myself.

Sorry kinda of like a gear head no road master you are thinking impalla ss, I am talking about a Buick Regal Grand National. Not saying the SF is the fastest thing on the planet, but I have been in enough professional drag races to know what I was following...

I was just kidding , some of those later Grand Nationals were pretty fast - a guy I worked with in Pittsburgh had the GNX and it was fast - but as you may know those things had a lot of reliability issues as those were the early years of turbo charging. Here in Denver I cannot recall seeing one in a good long while.

I know, I haven't seen one smoking so bad in a long time... The gnx was the fastest of them. All that power from a 3.8 litr I think?

Yeah I think 231 CID and if I'm correct it was basically the same as a NA engine
with respect to internals - crank bearing valves etc. I heard if you ran them hard stuff like the turbo, head gaskets and cooling system issues would arise - not unexpected. Today's high output engines like the Hyundai 2.0T do a remarkable job of moving heat away from the cylinder head - way way better cooling efficiency and combustion chamber temp control. and the engine internals are purpose built for high power generation.

The guy I worked with who had the GNX - rarely drove it, kept it in prime condition in his garage.

The GNX was a factory beast. That same engine was in a Firebird for one year. It was the fastest bird made of any. The GNX was able to beat all factory cars of its time including the Chevy Vette. GM stopped making after two years. Wonder why?????????

I'm a bit of a car nut, but I don't remember this. New body style for trans-am in 1980 included a turbo engine, and then in 85 I think the GTA SOME HAD A TURBO....
