Welcome to TRSource.com – the resource for Intercooled Turbo Regals. TRSource.com is dedicated to the maintenance and modification of 1986-87 Buick Regals powered by the LC2 engine, including the T-Type, Turbo T and Grand National. Although we’re dedicated to the Intercooled LC2, much of the information here will also apply to the “hot-air” non-intercooled Turbo Buicks and even the 1989 Turbo Trans Am.
TRSource.com is intended to be the “one-stop” source for intercooled TR information. We’ll include:
- reference material you can use
- the latest technical information for monitoring and tuning your Turbo Regal
- periodic maintenance – how to keep your Turbo Regal a top performer
- in-depth product reviews – we buy it, install it, evaluate it, and report back to you
- performance upgrades – a staged approach to increasing power and handling
- coverage of Buick and Turbo Regal events (maybe some other models as well…)
Our future plans include establishing a discussion forum and bringing some exciting new products to market. So visit us often and let us know what you think.
