when you think of the word sleeper what
0:02
do you think about the Taurus SHO the
0:05
Chevy SS or the Buick Regal yes the
0:10
Buick Regal GS the Buick Regal at one
0:13
point had a supercharged front-wheel
0:15
drive V6 that with some bolt-ons back in
0:19
the day could beat a lot of comparable
0:21
sports cars so Grandpa was getting those
0:24
groceries real quick if you know what
0:26
I’m saying but this Buick Regal has been
0:28
switched over from the supercharger to a
0:30
turbo charger and just by doing this
0:33
creates a 400 wheel horsepower Buick
0:37
Regal so with all this power going
0:39
straight to the front wheels is this
0:41
thing even usable or is it a grandpa
0:43
party trick let’s go for a drive and
0:46
find out

0:52
hey guys before we talk about today’s
0:55
topic I just wanted to give a huge
0:56
thanks to today’s sponsor upside upside
0:59
is a cashback app that enables people to
1:01
get more value from their purchases and
1:04
what’s even better is that it improves
1:05
the profitability of local businesses
1:08
they partner with over 30 000 businesses
1:10
and 25 000 gas stations in 48 states
1:13
plus Washington DC and upside is
1:16
actually extremely user friendly all you
1:19
have to do is open the app and claim an
1:21
offer for whatever you’re kind of
1:22
looking for it is so easy because all
1:25
you have to do is check in at the
1:26
business claim the offer and then you
1:29
just use your debit or credit card go
1:31
about your day and then you get paid and
1:33
the cash appears in your upside account
1:34
which you can cash out at any time
1:37
whether it’s through bank transfer
1:38
PayPal and e-gift for Amazon Starbucks
1:42
and dozens of other places and what’s
1:45
really cool is there’s no limit to how
1:47
much you can earn and you can just
1:48
transfer that cash straight into your
1:51
checking account and it’s real cash back
1:53
it’s not a loyalty program or a point
1:55
system so it’s really easy to understand
1:57
it’s real cash back and it’s loved by
1:59
users and business owners alike because
2:02
it just helps out everybody with gas
2:04
prices so high I primarily use upside
2:07
for getting gas and what’s really cool
2:09
is when you open the app it tells you
2:10
all the local prices everything from
2:12
premium gas to regular gas and also the
2:14
return or cash back for going to that
2:17
gas station in particular to get started
2:19
click the link below and download the
2:21
free upside app in the app store or
2:22
Google Play use my promo code that dude
2:25
and get five dollars or more cash back
2:27
on your first purchase of 10 or more
2:29
this here is a Buick Regal
2:36
back in the day there was a video on
2:38
YouTube called sleepers and it was about
2:41
this guy’s quest to turn his Buick Regal
2:44
into a sleeper and it showed him beating
2:47
a lot of cars on the street at the time
2:49
I thought it was so fascinating that was
2:51
the first time they learned what the
2:53
term sleeper meant every single time I
2:55
think of that I think of the legacy of
2:57
the word sleeper I think of the first
2:59
generation Taurus SHO I think of the
3:02
Buick Regal GS cars that were never
3:05
meant to have a following in the
3:07
performance world for the most part but
3:09
they somehow managed to do it and the
3:11
cool thing about this Regal in
3:12
particular was with the blower set up
3:15
this ran a 14-5 quarter mile which you
3:17
know today’s standards you’re like okay
3:19
that’s kind of quick well then all he
3:22
did was take a bone stock engine from
3:25
this and throw a turbo on instead and
3:28
now it runs 12 O’s that is a two and a
3:31
half second increase just by switching
3:34
from the supercharger to the
3:36
turbocharger when you pop the hood it is
3:39
awesome to see you see this Buick engine
3:41
and also the 6262 turbo just sitting
3:43
right there in front of you extremely
3:46
clean engine bay and when it comes to
3:48
reliability he actually just drove this
3:50
car from Grand Rapids Michigan all the
3:53
way down to tell the dragon beat the
3:55
snot out of it and tell the dragon and
3:57
then drove all the way back this car’s
4:00
nickname is Moose because it’s just
4:02
goofy it’s just awesome it has a Sparco
4:04
steering wheel which feels absolutely
4:06
great in your hands compared to the
4:08
factory Buick Regal steering wheel which
4:11
was never meant to do what this car does
4:13
this also has all zzp suspension the
4:16
sway bars the coilovers everything they
4:18
sell it’s on this car we also got a
4:21
great Wheel and Tire setup an 18 by nine
4:24
and a half on a stock body he actually
4:27
rolled the fenders on this Buick and it
4:30
looks stuck I said wow that’s really
4:33
impressive because
4:35
you can’t really tell a lot of the times
4:37
when people roll the fenders you can see
4:39
like a little divot or something in the
4:40
fender you’re like yeah I did my best
4:42
but it is what it is
4:46
whoa the Buick Regal GS
4:49
was never supposed to be like a tuner
4:52
platform but it really turned into one
4:54
kind of in the GM underground where it’s
4:57
like okay like I can’t go get that
5:00
sports car I want I gotta have the old
5:02
man car you know either from my family
5:04
or retirement or whatever and people
5:06
just were like wait a minute this car
5:09
that no one’s looking at has a
5:10
supercharged V6 and we can like really
5:13
take advantage of it the seats this
5:15
leather is actually in really good shape
5:17
for being from the early 2000s it’s very
5:20
very well suited and at the same time
5:22
there’s not really any severe cracking
5:24
or anything I’ve noticed that too so
5:25
they definitely put some love in the
5:27
interior at least for back then like you
5:29
know the door handles all this stuff
5:30
it’s all hard plastic still but the
5:33
sound that this thing makes just makes
5:35
up for everything else so it doesn’t
5:36
matter
5:38
foreign
5:48
just went but believe it or not this is
5:51
a stock Engine with some valve springs
5:53
in it that’s it
5:59
Grandpa getting them groceries today
6:16
the fact that this is a turbocharged
6:19
front-wheel drive V6
6:22
that is weird but this V6 doesn’t have
6:25
like the V6 sound that you and I always
6:28
expect right out of like a VQ or a V6
6:31
Mustang or Camaro or something like that
6:33
this has a really
6:35
strange tone to it but not in a bad way
6:38
it has a tone in a way that’s unlike
6:41
anything I’ve heard
6:46
uh this is weird
6:57
foreign
7:02
that’s so crazy and this is what
7:05
traction control off and it’s still
7:06
managing to do this which is pretty
7:09
insane not to mention not a single
7:12
person looks at you ever driving this
7:14
thing with all the suspension the turn
7:16
in
7:23
this is so bizarre like like what is
7:28
this thing
7:33
I love the small aesthetic changes to it
7:36
too with the Buick GS has kind of like
7:38
this old man gorilla up front and
7:40
everything but they took it upon
7:41
themselves to kind of black it out make
7:43
it a little bit more classy
7:47
that was a I just saw a black squirrel
7:50
interesting
8:02
I think I would just quit the car scene
8:05
in car community in general if I got
8:07
beat by one of these laughs
8:12
God dang break okay
8:22
I think the word I can use is efficient
8:24
it feels very efficient it doesn’t
8:27
really feel like you’re straining this
8:29
V6 like oh God we threw a turbo on it
8:32
and man doesn’t not like it but it’s
8:34
fast this feels like it loves it it
8:38
really feels like you’re not hurting it
8:40
at all and it just will just keep on
8:42
taking it I mean you have to think that
8:44
with the supercharger there’s a lot of
8:45
strain with that right not every car
8:48
isn’t that much of a difference going
8:49
from super charge to Turbo but this is
8:51
one of those vehicles that it’s a
8:53
completely different story
8:57
way
9:00
s
9:03
okay Buick okay you’ve done really well
9:05
Buick that’s a good grandpa
9:32
this thing would hurt some feelings for
9:34
sure but it torques tears much less than
9:38
I expected it goes pretty straight it
9:41
might don’t get me wrong as soon as I
9:42
hit something in the road or a divot in
9:44
the road it pulls me left to right but
9:46
on its own it does really well I’m
9:49
really surprised like if you were to go
9:51
down a drag strip in this wouldn’t be an
9:53
issue my personal favorite is just
9:55
barely in it
10:01
power wise this makes over 400
10:03
horsepower
10:05
in a Buick Regal GS out of all the cars
10:08
like this what is your favorite sleeper
10:11
put it down in the comment section below
10:15
I could do that all day long all day
10:17
long I’m trying to put my finger on like
10:20
what this V6 sounds like but I
10:23
it’s kind of its own thing honestly
10:27
Cali when the turbo starts really
10:29
spooling in the 6262
10:32
it’s a freight train man absolute
10:35
Freight trade another thing about the
10:37
Buick real GS is in the gauge cluster
10:39
they had a built-in boost gauge it’s a
10:42
0.0 PSI supercharger boost but we don’t
10:47
need that anymore do we this is
10:49
definitely one of the most unique
10:52
driving experiences I’ve ever had in a
10:54
modified code because if you drive it
10:57
normal there’s no blow-off sound there’s
11:00
no
11:01
crazy road noise there’s nothing to give
11:04
it away that this thing’s been really
11:06
modified and then I add another 25 to
11:10
the throttle
11:13
and then you go White Walker on my end
11:15
we got so hooked on the Supras the evos
11:19
obviously cars that are really great
11:21
platforms
11:23
but we never tend to look on the outside
11:25
of those we tend to just stick to what
11:27
we know in the Buick Regal GS is one of
11:30
those cars where
11:32
if you Branch out you can really find
11:34
something special as long as you’re
11:36
willing to do the research and do the
11:38
work which moose is an obvious obvious
11:41
example of that being able to drive
11:43
thousands of miles get beat the snot out
11:46
of at the dragon which is not an easy
11:48
Road on a car I don’t know if this car
11:51
would work the same way it would when it
11:54
comes to appearances if it had like a
11:56
flamboyant color if it had like a bright
11:58
color it just wouldn’t work this thing
12:01
gets cooking really fast and it holds
12:04
speed like when you’re cruising it
12:06
doesn’t gradually slow down hardly at
12:09
all it carries speed a ton
12:14
so Buick Regal GS
12:17
what did I think of it well
12:19
it has no business making these kind of
12:22
noises it wasn’t one of those things
12:24
where it’s like oh look he took an
12:26
unorthodox car and modified it like good
12:30
try champ good try I understand what you
12:33
were going for but good try no this is a
12:37
legitimate platform that I had no idea
12:41
about okay maybe I knew a little bit
12:43
about but I never like dabbled in it but
12:46
being able to actually drive it
12:48
has been a really fascinating experience
12:51
nobody looks at you nobody cares how
12:54
fast you’re going in it everybody thinks
12:56
you’re just a crazy old man it sits
12:58
pretty and has all the zzb suspension on
13:01
it so it handles very good it has the
13:03
right steering wheel it has a
13:05
comfortable interior now surprisingly
13:08
these luxury seats keep me in place more
13:12
than I expected if you want to be
13:14
different in the car scene this is a
13:16
great step with the Buick Regal GS I
13:19
loved it it had a great time I’m always
13:22
looking for these weird car experiences
13:24
