Sold it just recently. Bought a 1995 Cad SLS, a 1995 Ford F-150, and the 1994 Bonneville SSEi with the proceeds. Still miss the Regal though.

It is pretty, but constant work to keep it running quick.

Nice car, always wanted a GN since 1986 when I was in high school. Nice 1/4, what mods did she have?

It seems like the list of mods was endless and growing, not to mention growing more exepensive... But anyway, here'* a synopsis:
Fuel: Walbro 340 fuel pump, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, homemade alcohol injection system (100psi, various jet sizes), 42.5 lb fuel injectors (stock are 28 lb), minimum of 100 octane fuel by mixing 30% Xylene with 93 octane....
Air: 14 K&N filter, Mass Air Flow Translator that let it run a 3 Chevy MAF, RJC powerplate (a boost flow modifier under the 'doghouse.')
Turbo and exhaust: TE44 with an adjustable wastegate running approx 20-24psi of boost, 3 pipes to Ford PowerStroke Diesel front mount intercooler, 3 Terry Houston downpipe, stock headers and crosspipe
Engine: Recently rebuilt stock except 212/212 cam
Brakes: Vacuum (standard brakes are the "Powermaster," a GM electric compressor pump that failed all the time), long rear shoes, bigger rear cylinders
Transmission: Custom hipo rebuild with Stage Right trans brake. Torque Converter: Precision Vigilante 5-clutch lock-up
Lots of little things, like the 160 degree thermostat, etc.
