My buddy'* 87 Grand National turns 12.5 @ 115 mph and all he did to it is open up the exhaust, add a chip and bump up his boost and fuel pressure a little.
That GS looks to be as fast as the GN.
I really like that video.

That GTP'* current bast time is a 12.67 @ 108.00mph. So, it has now bumped up from 2nd to 1st fastest 40th Anniversary! So that means that Regal is easily a 12.1 or 12.2 @110-112 car!

Well ...

It appears that a heavily modded Buick Regal GS with SC can make a Bonne SSEi or GTP look like horse and carriage. I have to get this link to a buddy at my office, he wants to work on his Regal once his warranty is up.

That is the stock L67 short block with stock pistons as far as I know. It has ported and polished heads and IIRC a ZZP XP Cam with the appropriate valvetrain mods to support it. It runs a 2.6" Supercharger Pulley and 31 degrees of ignition timing. It obviously has headers and things like that. Because of the ported and polished heads and the large cam I believe it shifts at 6600 or 6700rpms, which is actually fairly low seeing that the BADSSEi shifts at like 7200rpm, and our stock cam GTP shifts at 6200rpm. 6000rpm shifts are actually low shifts since that is the factory redline. It doesn't take much to make the L67 handle 7,000rpms easily.

i remember hearing that the series 2 engine was designed from the factory for 7,000 RPM and the reason for the 6,000 RPM redline is the tranny not being able to take 7k RPM shift speeds
