About “ILLEGAL REGAL”

i GOT THIS CAR FROM MY DAD WHO PLANNED TO BUILD INTO A DIRT TRACK STOCK CAR AND THEN GAVE TO ME FOR A GRADUATION PRESENT

About “224whp & 219 ft/lbs”

I bought this in Dec. '05 to replace my totalled 91 sunbird. What a great replacement this has turned out to be. the wreck was a blessing in a good disguise.....

I got this car for 900 bucks. what a steal, eh? it has run a best of -

15.99 @ 83mph in the 1/4 mile *old news*
14.99 @ 92mph
14.84 @ 92mph
14.71 @ 94mph

Dyno'd 191hp @ 5600RPMs and 202 ft/lbs @ 4500RPMs, which pushed it to a 14.71 pass @ 94.54 mph. Ran that with a 2.07 60 foot time on BFG drag radials.

The built motor is IN, with much trouble and compromise.... but it is in, and it runs, and it drives :D it's got the lope, hehehe. vids (still) on the way).

Dyno'd it again a couple weeks ago with the good motor, 224whp and 219ft/lbs, still needs some tuning, it has some small driveablility issues on the street, but i've been driving it for about 3-4 weeks now with no major issues. got rained out + an ignition issue when i went to the track after the dyno, so i need to get out there again, 2 weeks tops for that....
