Turbo Regal Technical Articles - Information for the Enthusiast
The Turbo Regals are wonderful and responsive vehicles, with performance potential that can be unleashed with a little backyard tinkering and a relatively small monetary expenditure. The categories listed at the top of this page as "buttons" or links represent many tips, tricks, fixes, and projects gathered from members of the GN/T-Type Mailing list over the years.

These articles cover most of the common topics for turbocharged Buick powered cars. Many of the articles may be written for specific models or years, but the techniques or procedures usually can be generalized to cover other years/models. The following vehicles are specifically covered:

  • 1978-1983 Carbureted Turbo Regal Sport Coupes
  • 1984-1985 SFI non-intercooled T-Type/Grand Nationals
  • 1986-1987 SFI intercooled Turbo Regal/T-Type/Grand Nationals
  • 1989 Turbo Trans Am
