nice regal. I almost bought one as well when I was looking for a new car. They're definately good cars (and fast too.) The 0-60 on them are 6.5 seconds stock! check out www.regalgs.org as well. I'm also on that board because of the Riviera section. First thing you'll want to do is exhaust work to remove the U-bend just after the catalytic converter.. it'* very restrictive right there.

The only part of the exhaust that is really restrictive is the U-bend. It doesn't cost that much to replace it either. Just chop off that part of the exhaust pipe and put a straight pipe in it that'* not bent. It was only bent from the factory to accomodate the second oxygen sensor. By the way, if you didn't already know, this is Dan, the guy you almost bought a Riviera from in Michigan.
